Beside Still Waters: Discovering Peace in the Midst of Your Childï¿½s Addiction
The Lord is my Shepherd. He leads me beside still waters … Psalm 23:1-2
When our children are in the bondage of addiction, it seems impossible to find any peace in our lives. Instead of still waters, we feel as if we are in the middle of a roaring river. Beside Still Waters: Discovering Peace in the Midst of Your Child’s Addiction deals with topics such as denial, worry, enabling, guilt feelings, codependency, legal issues, signs of addiction, and more. Although written from a mother’s heart to other mothers, the book can also be helpful for fathers or anyone who loves someone in addiction.
“Although Cherri was raised in a family known for pioneering Christian recovery ministry, the snare of addiction became a very personal issue when it invaded the lives of her children. This book is psychologically informed, biblically based, and grace oriented. It will be a useful tool to help equip parents to model and promote freedom in Christ.”
—Dr. John Woodward, Director of Grace Fellowship International, Pigeon Forge, TN.
“For families that are being torn apart by addiction, there is hope in Jesus Christ. He desires to lead moms “Beside Still Waters” to whisper that message of hope to their aching hearts. Cherri Raws Freeman understands firsthand how addiction can destroy a family member. She has experienced hope and now wants to share that hope with you.”
