Step Three of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous
“Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.”

The Big Book Study by Joe and Charlie is the most popular AA 12 Step Series ever presented. Its origins date back to 1973 when Joe McQ and Charlie P met and discovered their mutual love for the AA Big Book. Joe and Charlie collaborated and created a series of talks based on their interpretation of the AA Big Book and the 12 Steps. Their Big Book Study presentation was recorded and ended up going viral becoming the most popular 12 Step Series in the recovery community.

This is the fourth of eight tapes in this 12 Step Series called Journey to Recovery from the Big Book Comes Alive presentation that was recorded in August of 1998. In this tape, Joe and Charlie discuss the third step.

Remember, we need to perk our ears up and listen whenever we hear the key words or when Joe and Charlie talk about the principles of faith that we practice in Step 3. Click here to listen to Joe and Charlie demonstrate the principle of honesty as he shares his story with us.
