With a foreword by Pastor Rick Warren, Life's Healing Choices small group study, a resource tied to Celebrate Recovery (and Saddleback Community Church), offers happiness and healing through eight choices that lead to transformation.
The perfect guide for small groups teaches readers how to handle their hurts, hang-ups, and habits, finding strength in numbers and compassion from others.
Thousands of churches around the country have small group studies, and this book focuses on the eight concrete, well-defined choices that are the foundation of Life's Healing Choices. This guide is specifically designed to help small groups study the principles in more detail, such as Admitting Need, Getting Help, and Letting Go.

"Sometimes, recovery, healing, and spiritual growth are talked about as if they are three different topics. What I like about John's work is that he brings them all together, and we find that no matter what our issues, we are all on the same path. Life's Healing Choices will be a help along that path to all who read it." —Dr. Henry Cloud, author of Boundaries

"This is a book whose time has come. John Baker's worldwide ministry and reputation, coupled with a strong biblical approach, make this book a must for anyone who hurts and wants God to heal them. My personal friendship with John and years of involvement in his work have shown me his heart, his calling, and his gifts to the world. I highly recommend this book." —Dr. John Townsend, psychologist, author of Who's Pushing Your Buttons? and coauthor of Boundaries
