Serenity In Action
Mixed media

Statement: This spunky "skelly" is running off to her own NA meeting. She is a reluctant leader but is a good listener and knows that her recovery depends on giving help to other addicts. She has the Serenity Prayer in an app on her phone but knows it by heart now. Her family tries to understand her "new personality." With prayer they will weather this change in the family dynamic. She prays for them as they all try to forget the dark times.

 

Bio: Our small Episcopal church, in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky, has opened its doors to Narcotics Anonymous for many years. The Serenity Prayer, twelve steps, open hearts and coffee fuel recovery for many addicts. Last year my own family became a part of this grace in action. My family member is about to realize six months of sober living. These figures are my way of giving praise for that milestone and my own healing. My "skelly" dolls embody the alienation that addicts and their loved ones often feel.
