Show Notes
In today's episode, I sit down with Bracha Goetz, a Havard-educated author of 40 children's books and the candid memoir, Searching for God in the Garbage. Join us as we dive into spirituality in life and in recovery, managing big emotions, and finding gratitude in life's smallest pleasures. 


  • The role of spirituality in recovery (from any addiction), and how it helped Bracha transform her life. 
  • The importance of connecting with a higher power in the healing process.
  • Managing big emotions: how to sit with discomfort and managing overwhelming emotions as we work towards healing and growth.
  • Finding gratitude in the small things and the importance of presence and mindfulness in rediscovering the simple joys of life.
  • The decision to stay stuck in misery or choose happiness and work towards a solution.
  • Discovering what brings you joy.

Oh, and by the way, if you didn’t know, my program Sober Freedom Transformation is now open! It is for women who have been sober for a year to many and are ready to discover who they want to be in long term sobreity, develop confidence and improve their relationships.

If you aren't part of the Confident Sober Women Facebook group, it's a great place to be. There are over a thousand other sober women there building lives they don't want to escape from. Come on over and join us.

And if you haven't read my memoir, grab a copy today and maybe a second one for a friend. There is so much hope in recovery, and I shared my story so raw and vulnerably so that others would know they aren't alone and that there is a way to live well, manage relationships, parent your kids, and have a healthy body, all while staying sober. Grab a copy of Recovering in Recovery: The Life-Changing Joy of Sobriety wherever books are sold.
