Step 11 of the 12 steps for addiction recovery:
"Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out."
Many believe that a complete spiritual transformation is required to end drug and alcohol addiction, Step 11 is a very critical and often over looked element of this transformation. Improving our relationship with our higher power can deliver us from addiction and give us the joyous and free life that we all are seeking.

On tonight's show, Pastor Rafael Herrera will be talking about a new exciting new school he is teaching. This school will involve the teachings of the bible. I would also like to invite you to call us at 1-602-753-1699 and ask us questions, or share your thoughts. In addition, I look forward to talking about the real reason for the season. Pastor Rafael said "It is a school of ministry that offers a 12-month ministry program for those who feel called into the ministry. There is a phase 1 that goes into systematic theology and a phase 2 that goes into more advanced courses such as Bibliology & Hermeneutics, which is the study of biblical interpretation and Homiletics, which is the preparation and delivery of a sermon or teaching, and of course other things involved. My school is called The Word Walk School of Ministry, and it will be starting the latter part of January 2015."
