A Minnesota-based chemical dependency coach has published a book about her uplifting journey to embracing her spirituality and discovering God within herself and others. In “Always New Beginnings,” author Helena Ana Young twines intimate anecdotes of her own life struggles and challenges with her more than four decades of experience working with those recovering from chemical dependency.

Through nine short, easy-to-read chapters, Young presents readers with a series of her own “beginnings” – each of which provides a relatable and raw forum for spiritual reflection, healing and growth. In this, Young hopes to reach out to those who are lost or hurting so that they may find peace and encouragement.

“Teaching is my forte, especially demonstrating to others that we are not who we have been, but rather who we choose to be in the present,” Young said. “I am 78 years old and still working to reach those in pain – it’s the reason for my writing of this book. It’s my calling.”

Told from the perspective of a woman who has spent much of her life helping others to reclaim their own, “Always New Beginnings” delivers a gentle examination of the depths of the human spirit and offers a path to discovering and fortifying one’s identity.
