Came to Believe

Gathered in this booklet are the heartfelt stories of more than 75 A.A. members from around the world who share what the phrases "Higher Power” and "God as we understood Him" mean to them. The title — the first three words in the second of A.A.’s Twelve Steps — hints at the book’s theme: that recovery in Alcoholics Anonymous is not a destination, but a spiritual journey that takes place over time, while living “life on life’s terms.” Sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, but always honest, the stories in Came to Believe present a wide range of perspectives on what spirituality can look like in the context of Alcoholics Anonymous, demonstrating how the A.A. program is best described as “spiritual but not religious.” The rich diversity of voices we hear reflect the infinite number of paths available to those seeking freedom from alcohol. From newcomers just finding their way to longtimers seeking new perspectives, A.A. members of all kinds may find in Came To Believe added insight and inspiration to breathe enrich their recovery journey. Came to Believe has been approved by the General Service Conference.
