There is nothing on earth more powerful than the love of a mother…except drugs.
God has a miraculous way of taking our pain and sorrow and making something beautiful and useful. He never wastes anything—even our pain or, in Maria Kouts’ case, her worst nightmare.
More Americans died last year from drug overdose than the entire Vietnam War. Like war, drugs don’t discriminate. Drugs don’t care about your age, race, religion, social status, or gender; they’re just glad to own you. Addicts come from all walks of life, from all types of families—rich, poor, young, old, people of faith, and those with no faith at all.
The message in this book is intended to inspire, educate, strengthen, and comfort its reader. The learning process that those dealing with addiction have to go through is very difficult. The unlearning of how we judge and separate ourselves from addiction is even harder.
This book and the trying experiences that surround it were made for “such a time as this” when our world is experiencing the worst drug epidemic of all time. «Josiah: One Family’s Journey of Being Broken Together» is a personal story of loss and tragedy, but, as with any story like this, it doesn’t need to end there. There is hope, and Maria prays that you will find it in the pages of this book.
