I never knew I had a purpose before recovery. I was too busy running around trying to gain a foothold on “life in the fast lane.”  I not only found I have a purpose, I also have a direction in life, and that direction is a path that will take me to the spiritual realm.  A place of peace, contentment, service, dedication, and a solid belief in the Program of Alcoholics Anonymous.  I cannot begin to tell you how important it has become to have both purpose and direction at this time of my life. The Program continues to teach me. God, in His mercy has enabled me to take the lessons learned and pass them on to those who are still struggling and suffering.  I have changed from being a material person to being a woman with a singleness of purpose.
