Item description for Hit by a Ton of Bricks (Family Issues) by John Vawter, Angie Peters & Jerome L. Nelson...

"You're Not Alone When Your Child's On Drugs: 19 Stories of Hope, Love, and Healing"

The nightly news tells us of the pervasive nature of drug abuse among children and young adults. But none of us expect it to happen in our homes. Pastor and speaker John Vawter shares from his experience on the road through addiction to sobriety with his daughter. Other pastors, counselors, and teachers share their journeys. You'll also hear from their now-sober adult children about what drew them to drugs and/or alcohol.

If you have a child in these circumstances, you will feel the arms of parents wrapping around you in empathy. These deeply intimate stories will give you courage and strength to persevere through difficult days and sleepless nights.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Hit by a Ton of Bricks (Family Issues)?

Emotional Support  Dec 7, 2007
I have purchased this book more than once. I have given it away a couple of times after reading it over and over. For "good" parents who have tried to love their kids and do their best, I think this is an excellent resource of encouragement and hope. While the authors don't give many specifics on how to deal with your substance abusing teen, they do offer the realization that other parents who have done their best still had kids who went astray. I have to say that it was no small thing in my mind that all 19 of the people discussed in this book grew up in two parent, church-going homes. As a divorced mom, I took a great deal of encouragement from that one thing.

Authors offer a website with other resources, as well as assistance in getting connected with a local support group of other parents like yourself. I think the sub-title says it all..."You are not alone..."
Practical, Encouraging, Inspiring  Sep 9, 2003
I've seen so many Christian couples struggling with prodigal children. This book is a compilation of honest, gritty stories of love, hope and healing by those who've walked this heartbreaking walk. The transparent accounts are written by well-known leaders who were very nearly derailed by losing a child to drugs.

Besides those families touched by the drug epidemic, this book seems to indirectly provide hope for parents of all kinds of "far-country children." Shame and secrecy are two of Satan's most powerful tools. The book addresses alternatives to those. The chapters on "Keeping Your Marriage Healthy When Your Kids Aren't" could apply to any number of kid situations.

I try to keep a couple books on hand and I've never had such grateful feedback on a book-- it's filled with help and hope. The resources and addendum are worth their weight in gold. Buy more than one copy. This is one you'll want to share with hurting families.
