Personal Visioning in Numbers

The pdfs below were created by active individual DA and BDA members as part of DA and BDA Visioning Conferences, which we hosted during July and August 2021, January and February 2022, and July and August 2022.

Please feel free to download the pdfs below by clicking on any of the images and use them for inspiration as you develop your own visions in DA and BDA.

We will be hosting the next Visioning Conference in early 2023. Please put the registration in your spending plan and join us. Upcoming BDA Help for Debtors (registered group # 7720) events can be found here.

We're experiencing miracles in our DA and BDA recovery, and you can, too. But you've got to show up and do the work. First the work of getting solvent — incurring no new unsecured debt, no matter what, one day at a time — then the work of taking the 12 Steps, then everything else.


The template used to create the complete personal spending plans below can be downloaded here and some helpful guidance on preparing personal spending plans can be downloaded here.

The example shown first here is aligned with our recommendations: focus on one personal vision at a time, until you've reached clarity about what you want and what it will cost to fund it; create meaningful categories and subcategories; do market research; engage all necessary participants, a domestic partner in the example below; let an uninvested recovering DA and BDA member guide the process and ask scads of questions; pray for "this or something better" over and over and over again. It works; it really does.
