Holiday Book Buying

With Christmas not far off L.I.F.E. Ministries realizes that although we celebrate Jesus Christ as the reason for the season, purchasing gifts for our friends, family and loved ones is still a wonderful way to show appreciation and love to one another.

Books, music and computer media are always popular and there are great places to buy these items. L.I.F.E. would like to remind everyone that these mega-book store chains and any book store for that matter, are not always the safest places for people in recovery from sexual addiction to browse.

Many of you have been very helpful in relaying the message to us here and we’d like to do our part as well. Please realize that there are safer ways to be “out and about” this holiday season. If you are planning on purchasing books and the like, consider finding the titles, topics or authors you want on the many internet sites selling them.

You can call ahead for the items your thinking about to see if they are available and have them waiting at the register with your name when you arrive. You can ask someone to go with you to these stores to help create some accountability.

And, if you must go and get the book by yourself, let someone in your group or your sponsor know before hand. When you arrive at the store, it may be wise to ask someone who works there to take you to the place where what you’re looking for is located, this might be smarter than simply “launching out” into the store to discover just how much garbage there really is.
We hope that you have a safe and wonderful holiday season!
