Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture

Lisa Boucher is the author of Raising the Bottom: Making Mindful Choices in a Drinking Culture, an award-winning book that won the 2017 Best Book Awards in the category of women’s health and placed as a finalist in the category of addiction/recovery. She is also a speaker.

After short stints where she trained polo horses, worked as a flight attendant, hairdresser, and bartender, she realized that the time to implement serious change had arrived. She gave up drinking, revamped her life and settled in as a registered nurse where living a life in recovery became her way.

For the past twenty-eight years, Lisa has worked with hundreds of women to overcome alcoholism, live better lives and become better parents. She was prompted to write Raising the Bottom when after twenty-four years of working in hospitals, she realized that doctors and traditional health care offer few solutions to women with addiction issues. She is dedicated to not only help women recover from alcoholism, but has extended her reach to educate and help corporations deal with the growing addiction problem that has permeated every sphere of American life. An author of five books, she holds a BA in English and is the mother of twin sons. She currently resides in Ohio with her husband.

Seek Purpose

Seek Purpose is a community of people seeking purpose in recovery. Learning to feel, to love, to parent and supporting each other through it all.    Seek Purpose started as a prayer in the shower and the undeniable voice that spoke back saying “your story, my glory”. With this exciting concept in hand, the mission was on to find out what God was calling us to create.

After hours of phone calls, several designs and redesigns, 4 failed podcast episodes and some last-minute tweaks Seek Purpose the Podcast was born.
