He Did Deliver Me From Bondage is the book that introduced the 12 Steps to the LDS Church, explaining the principles in the steps in terms of the restored gospel. First published in 1989, He Did Deliver Me From Bondage was adopted in 1991 by LDS Family Services (then LDS Social Services) as the only text used in their LDS Addiction Recovery Program. To date, more than 150,000 copies have been sold, definitely making it a best seller.
He Did Deliver Me From Bondage had its origin in research Colleen did looking for the principles found in the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in the Book of Mormon. Colleen reasoned that if these principles that had helped so many alcoholics and other addicts find recovery, they must be part of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Her search uncovered a multitude of verses teaching the principles found in each of the steps. Although there wasn't room to use them all, these verses formed the framework for He Did Deliver Me From Bondage.

Most people would have panicked, sitting bound and gagged on a boulder in the middle of the desert as I was, but for some reason, I didn't. A strange kind of reassurance washed over me from somewhere deep within. Whether it was peace that I'd go quickly, or comfort that I was being protected, I wasn't sure.
When Mel Petersen leaves for work on the morning of February 7, 1958, he has no idea what awaits him.

What Mel doesn't know is that the men are actually convicts on the run, desperate to get away by any means possible.
When one of his passengers holds a knife to Mel's throat, he has no choice but to submit to the demands of the criminals. Mel hopes he has what it takes to talk his captors down, but fears they will kill him before he has the chance.
Based on a true story, The Sharp Edge of a Knife follows Mel and his captors on an unforgettable ride that will have you questioning the depth of your faith and sitting on the edge of your seat.

At Last—Help for the Spouses of Sex AddictsRead excerpts from the book here.
Help for those trapped in sexual addiction has only recently been available, especailly material written from an LDS perspective. Sadly, help for the loved ones of those addicted to sexual acting out is becoming available even more slowly. In From Heartache to Healing, Colleen and Phil Harrison offer compassion, understanding, and help. The principles in this book will help you understand your situation better, but even more, will give you concrete advice in dealing with a most heartbreaking situation. There is hope for healing, through the Power in Jesus Christ. Colleen and Phil help the reader access that power for themselves.
Based on Personal Experience
Phil Harrison struggled with addiction for over 30 years. After his first wife, Kathy, passed away, he married Colleen less than a year after getting into a 12 Step recovery program. Colleen had previously been married to another sexually addicted man, but one who did not seek help or recovery, and ended up going to prison because of his indulgence in his addiction. When Colleen and Phil became acquainted, Colleen had been divorced from her first husband for several years. Based on their experiences, Phil's with addiction and recovery, and Colleen's, with marriage to two different men with different approaches to their sexual addiction, the authors share from a wealth of experience concerning what works and what doesn't work.

This series of grammar books is very different from most approaches to teaching grammar. First, it uses a gospel context to invite the spirit and help students look at grammar in everyday situations with which they are familiar. Secondly, it believes that grammar is best taught by the study of good writing and then emulating those writing principles. Current research is showing that a writing-based grammar program is more effective in teaching students to write well than the present over-use of rote exercises found in most grammar texts.
Each text is divided into specific concepts with exercises and additional practice suggestions. The interactive examples and exercises are designed to ensure that students understand the concept being introduced. The answers directly follow the exercises. While the fundamental elements of grammar are included and reviewed in each book, the series builds upon itself and asks the student to think a little differently about how grammar is a part of writing.
Line Upon Line (vol. 1): Where does the comma go? How about a semi-colon? This easy to follow and understand text focuses on sentence structure in writing.
Precept Upon Precept (vol. 2): When we communicate in writing we want to be clear and understandable. This text looks at grammar as part of the writing process and examines the most troublesome aspects of grammar for the writer.
Here a Little, There a Little (vol. 3): I don’t want my writing to be boring! This text examines how grammar techniques can be used to make writing more interesting and persuasive. Defines how punctuation and grammar can be used as rhetorical techniques.
Give Ear and Learn Wisdom (vol. 4): Why doesn’t English make sense? This text discusses the history of English and how it has affected our grammar and spelling, as well as the way writing has changed over the years.
