The Brighter12 Approach

Each Brighter12 blog post will contain a short insight for recovery and encouragement based on the bible. There may also be a song of praise to go along with the writings as well as a simple declaration that can be used to pull the thoughts together and personalize the day’s thoughts. I hope to share the healing we can find walking with Jesus Christ through the 12 Steps.

It is my heart’s desire to give back to the Lord for the great gift of sobriety that I have been given. Brighter12 is my way of encouraging others as they journey through recovery of all kinds.

Professional: I have over 30 years of experiences as an Information Technology professional with a Project Management certification. My background contains a mix of corporate life and entrepreneurial pursuits.

Personal: I am the mother of 2 talented young men.

More personal: I was a highly functional alcoholic for many years. I successfully ‘hid it’ but eventually my comfortable life began to crumble. I found freedom from my unhealthy lifestyle and now have well over seven years of sobriety. I give credit to Celebrate Recovery. a Christ-centered 12 Step program, for showing me how to surrender my will and begin the journey of deeper understanding of how to put God first in life. I have learned a lot along the way and through Brighter12, I will share insight into the “brighter” freedom that is available to everyone.
