Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits.  It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory.  20 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17000 people at Saddleback, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. Eighty-five percent of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers.

Celebrate Recovery is now in over 20,000 churches worldwide!

    Healthy Eating, Active Living


Body & Soul- Faithfully Fit 


Renew: Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Health

Psalm 4:8 –I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.

                Sleep is important in restoring the body’s processes.  Excessive hunger is the body’s response to a lack of sleep as the body cries for energy that is normally supplied by a good night’s sleep.

1 Corinthians 10:31-Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

                We can manage stress by proper fueling of the body through nutrition-healthy eating.  Learn what triggers stressful eating for you and plan to combat this by maintaining healthy choices.

1 Corinthians 9:27- But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection….

                Physical activity helps burn excess chemicals in the body that lead to stress, strokes, heart disease, obesity, impaired memory and many other ills.  Therefore, for 2014 take the challenge to

  • Exercise: be specific about the goal, make a plan to walk, take simple steps like taking the stairs, parking the car and walking a little further to the store, stand and do stretches while watching your favorite soap opera,  game or reality show.

  • Eat better: Eat a little less by avoiding oversized portions.  

Hebrews 12:2-Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross…and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 

  • Me. Mine. My.  Being self-focused causes myopia. In order to limit discouragement and stress, we must move from thinking “it’s all about me” to realizing it’s “all about God”. (Paraphrased from Doug Fields- Home Word  ...Crosswalk)

  • When we think eternally, those things that discourage us seems so insignificant.

  • When our focus becomes eternal, discouragement can become the seedbed for a harvest of spiritual renewal-and the launch pad for a fresh start!!

About the Author

Maxwell Carter Jr. is retired from the US Army and a member of the American Legion DAV. Born on April 5, 1943 in Waco, Texas.  He attended George Washington Carver High School, later he joined the US Army on July 7, 1961 and retired in 1983 as a helicopter pilot, where he served two duties in South Vietnam and many duties in the US Army all over the world. About ten years ago an elderly woman on a VA shuttle bus overheard him conversing with some friends, and she suggested that he should become a writer or a politician. He chose to be a writer and published his first book in 2012 a 48 page paperback.

About the Book

Maxwell states “Life confronts us with challenges wherein we weigh things and decide where to go. Will you go to the right or to the left, forward or backward, right or wrong? In other words, God gave us free will. It’s up to us how we use it. Maxwell narrates had how had found God again after years of growing up in confusion, trying to find love in places where chaos reign- at home or at war in a foreign land. His battle with his own weaknesses, the things that ruined his personal life and relationships. Life had been an uphill climb for many years. But in the end he won with God.
