PROMISES, PROMISES – 164 PAGES OF ‘EM!

At many OA meetings, a lot of members hear ’the 9th step promises’ read before the close.

What a lot us don’t realize is, that there are a whole bunch of ‘Promises’ peppered all thru the 1st 164 pages of the Book from “Bill’s Story” to “A Vision for You”! 

Join us as we find them & talk about where they are. The Amount of hope in these ‘Promises’ thru out the B.B. is absolutely amazing. 

Guaranteed!
