This is the first in a trilogy of e-books - Prevailing Prayer and Addiction. More

About Jeannie Delahunt

Jeannie Delahunt, MPA. To begin, addiction seeks to deceive. Inner core foundations I stand upon are: my addict is not my nemesis! And, addiction cannot be controlled, neither by the addict, nor those who love that person.

My first e-book was born out of travail for my addict son, my pain, and family pain. Though I am a retired alcohol and drug counselor, to see my own son become enslaved to this chemical shredded my heart. As a parent, and as a Christian parent, what to do? Everything I tried failed. I had to do someting - fast! But what?

The beloved biblical tale of a rebellious son, demanding his inheritance from his father - this son's fall from riches to rags and rise to riches again became my most important confirmation, to follow through with a decision I knew I had to make. The prodigal's father may have been the first role-model for tough-loving someone. His decision, I believe, assisted in his son's return to him.

My second e-book, feeling alone in crisis, has to be one of the absolute worst of emotions! I don't want anyone who is trying to cope with a son or daughter's, or grandson or granddaughter's addiction to feel alone. I hope, as you read through my e-book, you may find solidarity and comfort.

On a brighter note:I love to research and write (various topics), love American History, World/Ancient History, Biblical History/Archeology, love gardening, swimming, barbecues and family/friend times. Love creatures and the beauty of creation in general.

I am still working on the second book from, Tough-Loving My Heroin Addict. I hope to have it published by April, if not sooner.

Please leave a review of my e-book as it will assist me with revisions. You may connect with me: power.prevailingprayer@gmail.com. I am found also on LinkedIn. Thank you for reading - may mighty Jehovah keep our addicts safe and deliver them from their bondage! Blessings, Jeannie
