(Called to Ministry, Called to Crack, and Back)

At twelve years of age our guest, Craig J. felt the call of God on his life to go into formal ministry, but through some unhealthy choices and the influence of the enemy of his soul, the call on his life was disrupted and later Craig would live out a 12-year addiction to crack cocaine. But God was determined to get Craig's attention and after a series of events, twists and turns, our guest was directed into Teen Challenge by the prompting of the Holy Spirit and serves today as the Dean of Men for the Tucson men's Center, part of the Teen Challenge of Arizona's recovery ministry.

Topic: Sober Fun Anyone?

Are we having fun yet? On today’s show we are going to have fun in recovery. So, hang on tight as the Take 12 Recovery Radio family takes you on an hour of humor, fun and silliness. When we say we are not a glum lot, we mean what we say. To start out the show the Monty’man answers some hate mail to brighten up your day. Then it’s off to experience the fun that is today’s show.

Topic: What's The Purpose of Our Work?

What is the purpose of our work? The world seems to say that we work so that we can have things in
great abundance. Yet the Scripture says that work is connected to physical sustenance. If I look at work as
something to keep me going for God's work, then my focus is outward, on others. If I look upon work as
something to gratify my wants, then focus is inward, on my own comfort.

As people in recovery, we are aware that selfishness, self-centeredness is the root of all of our problems.
We therefore need to view our work as pleasing to God, providing sustenance for us as we seek to do His will, not a gratification of our own desires.
Why are you going to work today?

Topic: Special Guest, Kirsten E. Vogel.
Author of In Sickness and In Silence
(The Trials and Triumphs of My First Year as a Recovery Addict's Mom)

She picked her son up from college as a seemingly successful freshman and exactly one week later, on December 22nd, my guest was checking her drug addicted teen into rehab. Her baby boy. Her pride. Her talented, compassionate son, who has in him what it takes to be a gift to the world, was now a drug addict.

Kristen says, “It’s been the most devastating, scary, overwhelming, anxiety-inducing, shocking, isolating time of my life.”

(Topic: Alcoholics Only)

Some would argue that Alcoholics Anonymous is only for Alcoholics, others would say it’s all-inclusive. One thing is for sure, the opinions are as broad as the fellowship is large. There are three types of approaches to this issue. The A.A. literature, of which much has been written on the topic, the bleeding deacon approach that many times comes from what is described as the AA purist and then there are the opinions that often times have little to do with either. In this episode of the Take 12 Recovery Radio Show, we will only scratch the surface of this topic, but there is a question we should all ask ourselves and that question is not posed enough. Find out what that question is and why it’s so important.
Also, Toni is back from sabbatical and Cecil has a little song for her on her first day back as our chipper cohost.

Contentment is a mental or emotional state of satisfaction drawn from being at ease in one's situation, body, and mind. Contentment could be a state of having accepted one's situation and is the largest piece in the art of emotional sobriety.
Being emotional dependent or discontented can be a trigger for many in recovery.
Are you the kind of person that views the grass as being greener on the other side of the fence of life? Have you ever chased after something only to find that you were right where you were supposed to be all along? Do you believe that you can be content with the statement God makes in the Good Book, “I will never leave you or forsake you”?

When we are Newcomers to the rooms of recovery, our experience can be less than settling, more unnerving than anything else. It doesn’t really matter what brought us to the rooms, the important thing now is that we are here. What are some of the things Old-Timers should be sensitive to when it comes to Newcomers? How can we help them to feel welcome, appreciated and not shamed? If the newcomer is truly the most important person in any meeting, why are they sometimes treated less than? What are some of the things newcomers may hear in a Twelve Step meeting that will encourage them to keep coming back? What are some of the things that may make them feel less than welcome?

We all grieve differently, we all experience loss and we all walk through the pain that is the reality of life.
After losing his sponsor of over 20 years, his cousin, his kitty and his dream job, the Monty’man has had a difficult several months. Many of our listeners have been hurting as well and have shared openly concerning their pain. Join the Monty’man and Dave Fleming as they discuss the topic of grief and loss, the stages we go through, and the power of helping one another through these challenging times in our lives when we need each other and God the most. A special thank you to all who responded to our post on social media concerning this topic. We love you all and pray for your recovery during these difficult times.
