With the Intersection we strive to bring together the three disciplines of spirituality, psychology and theology in an applicable fashion, as it relates to addiction, codependency, trauma, grief, loss, abuse and domestic violence. Our goal is to share our experience, strength and hope in Christ in a way that can frame up your journeys and studies along the path of recovery. We all can benefit from the 12 Steps through the whole of our lives. It is a common misconception that only those trapped in addiction can benefit, but the biblical principals that drive each of the steps can be applied to so much more. We all have something we need to recover from, we all need the Lord's help and His touch upon our lives. Join us in our journey from addiction to recovery; from loneliness to comfort in solitude; selfishness to selflessness; from chaos to peace; ultimately from death to life.

    Boundaries in Relationships

    Boundaries in Relationships

    One of the foundations for having a healthy relationship is respecting the boundaries that each person has communicated. This goes beyond being polite and involves listening intently and honoring what the other person requests. This is especially applicable regarding what is and what is not acceptable to the person.

    Trauma is a complex issue that has many negative emotions that are like the addict or codependent. For this reason, the 5th step can be a very effective way of uncovering toxic emotions, discovering God’s love for them and discarding the lies of the enemy that holds each of us back from a full relationship with Christ and others.

Very helpful!!!

I never knew I was mourning loss of my innocence and childhood. I was sexually abused so many years in my childhood and I never understood where the anger was coming from. Thanks to this 12 step book and podcast my anxiety and depression is gone. Now I fully understand where my trauma and triggers come from.
