We choose to be ‘Recovering’, by appreciating each other in this home. Recognizing the enormous worth God has placed on each one of our lives, we intentionally attach a high value to each other. Our purpose is to serve each other unselfishly. We do not elevate our needs above the other members of this home. We think of others safety and needs first and we stand with and for each other. We work at eliminating selfish motives that create problems in our lives.

Love in this home is key. Love runs deep, wide, long, and high in this home. We choose to love each other unconditionally with the same kind of love in which God has loved us. That means we tell the truth to each other in this home, even when it’s difficult. Sometimes it is a ‘Hard kind of Truth’, but we will always wrap it in tenderness of understanding. The gift of choice allows us to open ourselves through a valued trust in growth.

We treat each other with genuine love in this home. We express our love through words and actions and in this expression of love we should never be less than sincere. We hold value and worth in each other and ourselves by observing what we say and how we say it. We listen to understand and learn from each other to communicate better with our hearts and our actions. We openly express what we’re feeling, but we don’t yell at each other. We don’t throw fits or pout in this home. That’s just not honorable.

We fill our lives and our home with the true “Goodness Of Life” and stay away from the things that lead us away from this good. We laugh a lot. We tease a lot. We are trusted friends. And since we are imperfect people, we strive to be patient with each other, the way God is patient with us. We pray for each other and with each other consistently. This leads a good life.

We live beyond ourselves not within ourselves. We share our home and our resources through these principles with whoever God brings our way. Our home will be an inviting place where people will want to be, because we choose to be ‘Recovering’, by honoring God and each other in this home.
