Women in Recovery

Our backgrounds are unique, our stories vary, and our programs may differ, but we are all women in recovery and we come together to heal, transform, and connect. 

"The mission of Women in Recovery is to create a caring community that provides education and spiritual growth opportunities for women in 12-step recovery programs." 

Join us each month as we nurture, renew, and transform not only our programs but our lives.

The Enneagram (Part 1): Celebrating What Is Right About You

by hil GebbenGreen

This is a two-part series. Next month’s topic will be The Enneagram: Freeing Ourselves from the Prisons of Our Own Making.

What if there is nothing wrong with you? The Enneagram is a psychological and spiritual tool that helps us see what is powerfully right about ourselves. By studying the nine Enneagram Types and finding our home-base pattern, we can begin to understand and accept why we do what we do, finding the freedom to truly be ourselves.

Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones

by James Clear

No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving—every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results.

If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. Here, you'll get a system that can take you to new heights.

Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. In Atomic Habits, he draws on proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, readers will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field.

Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits—whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.


We will pause the WIR Book Group in 2023. It will no longer meet on the second Thursday of the month.
