From Addiction to Hope

3rd Step Ministry is proud to announce our very first book;

From Addiction to Hope: Stories of Healing, Wholeness & Everyday recovery.

This book is a collection of testimonials, highlighting women who have been impacted by 3rd Step Ministry, past and present who have experienced the life-changing work of Jesus Christ in their lives through SOBRIETY and RECOVERY.

"We overcome every stronghold including addiction by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony."-Maria Camarillo, 3rd Step Ministry Founder & Chairwoman

These stories will be a source of HOPE and ENCOURAGEMENT not only to the women we serve but to all who have a story of redemption and that is all of us!

We know that hope is gained through shared experiences that lift one another up and point to a brighter tomorrow. When one woman shares her story it empowers others to share theirs as well.

3rd Step’s Founder and Chairwoman, Maria Camarillo had this to say as they near the launch of the book, “Every story shared in this book is a testament to the amazing healing power of Jesus! We overcome every stronghold including addiction by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony. This is exactly what this book is, a collection of testimonies that reflect God’s amazing love and power to redeem and restore the lives of these beautiful women.”

We are excited to share that 100% of the proceeds to this book will go directly to support the efforts of 3rd Step Ministry and our reach towards women in recovery. Your generous contribution and support is greatly appreciated.

Every time a book is purchased we will donate a book to a woman in recovery.

The release date is scheduled for April 5, 2022.

Here’s a sneak peek of some of the stories that will be shared in the book:

“Though decades into my recovery and redemption story, I am still in awe that the woman who once vowed to never trust anyone or God – and who blamed Him for all her misfortune, calamity, and trauma — now loves the Lord with all her heart and soul. He met me right where I was, in that little shack, messed up and broken. The God of the Universe took time to pursue me and drew me to Him with cords of unconditional love and abundant mercy. God demonstrated to me that His grace is bigger, and His purposes are greater than the sin and pain that ravaged her youth like a perfect storm. God reached out to me in a profound way, rescued me, and planted my feet on the solid rock of Christ’s salvation that is extended to all who call upon the name of the Lord.” -3rd Step Sister

“As time passed, God in His loving way began to peel back the layers of the unresolved guilt and shame. I started trusting God to show me my character defects so that I could be healed and restored. It was slow and painful, but eventually, it turned into a beautiful and freeing process! Part of that process is when I became involved with 3rd Step Ministry. As I began to minister to the women in the program, God continued His work to heal the deep internal places that had been broken for so long.” -3rd Step Sister

We know you will be blessed by these stories and encouraging messages of hope throughout the book.
