Reaching Out to Those in Addiction and to Those Who Love Them

We often hear people say that “they love their kids to death.”  The truth is that we want to love them to life, not to death.  Our country has an epidemic of addiction to drugs and alcohol.  Our children are destroying their lives every day.  What can we do about it?

We pray that this site will provide information and support for those of you whose hearts are aching as you watch  your children struggle with addiction. We know that pain.  We are right there with you.

Our primary book to equip moms

Our primary book to equip parents

Beside Still Waters: Discovering Peace in the Midst of Your Child’s Addiction was written from a mother’s heart to those who are struggling with a child in addiction. The book is available directly from us for $10 plus s/h and can also be ordered from the major distributors such as Amazon and Barnes and Nobles. We pray that it will be a tool to encourage all who read it. For more information, email us at lovethemtolife@gmail.com.

  1. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored at work so I decided to browse your blog
    on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you present here and can’t wait
    to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my phone ..

  2. Thank you! A blessing to all moms struggling
    To show grace without enabling.
    Our intentional strong love focused on our kids eventual
    Experience of brokenness from their addiction
    Allows them to seek Christ and His freedom
    To overcome addiction. We will not allow guilt to
    Interfere w/ our strong love that refuses to enable.
    Our kids will overcome by
    the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.

  5. Our son, David, went through Keswick but got kicked out a week before graduation because he came back from Coveant weekend hot for nicotine. He used heroin at the bus terminal where Jim dropped him off . He was sober off and on and just stared using H again recently. We pray daily rhat God keeps him alive for the purposes of His kingdom.

    • Judy, I am so sorry to hear that he is using again. We will join you in praying for him to come to the end of himself so that he will surrender to Father and truly be healed. I will pray for your heart as you watch him go through this. Please call me if you need to talk or email me at lovethemtolife@gmail.com.
