The Christian Codependence Recovery Workbook: From Surviving to Significance (Revised and Updated) by Stephanie Tucker, MDAAC, RAS, M.Min., in conjunction with, A House that Grace Built, presents healing and wholeness to the body of Christ through a Christ-centered recovery process.  Designed by the author to assist in the recovery process from issues of "codependency," the workbook takes readers on a journey to discovery-giving them tools that reveal the nature of codependency amongst behaviors and patterns that can be created within the lives of individuals, families and within relationships.  The Lord has given the author much insight into the recovery process, enabling families, addicts and individuals to become free from bondage and strongholds that are linked to "survival" without a Christ-centered life.  Once denial has been addressed, the author reveals the issues, further exposing the lies, and transitions to the disclosure of truth, disposes of the dysfunctional strongholds and offers a receiving of His (Jesus Christ's) true healing.  This workbook is nothing short of phenomenal!  One will find a comprehensive workbook to bring a life truly centered in Christ and His freedom.

Within the pages, one will find much emotional healing with such chapters as: Facing Codependence, Family Systems, Emotional Strongholds, Love Systems, Ceasing Control: the Pathway to Surrender, Breaking Free From Denial, Exposing Shame, Receiving the Gift of Forgiveness, Offering the Gift of Forgiveness, Embracing Authentic Identity, Building Healthy Boundaries, and Balancing Principles and Priorities.  With keen biblical insight, the author systematically exposes the dysfunctional dynamics in individuals, addicts and the nature of codependence, while addressing the reality of spiritual warfare.  Further developing a solid scriptural foundation throughout, the author instructs and encourages readers that there is hope to be found in the recovery process.  All of the principles presented are biblical solutions offered with compassion and an open-ended question forum at the end of each chapter.  In doing so, the author gives practical applications to real life situations.

This is a much-needed book within the entire body of Christ.  While salvation is obtained by believing and confessing Christ, entering into the New Life that Christ offers can seem like an impossibility for some, as many are entangled in codependent behaviors derived from a life without Christ.  This book offers the way out of confusion, loneliness, fear and despair through a Christ-centered recovery process to finding freedom!  The author adamantly explains that Jesus is the ultimate Healer through His abundant Grace!  Amen!  Both books are highly recommended and are available to the body of Christ to encounter through individual study sessions or within group settings.  Highly recommended!
