Jeannie Delahunt, MPA. To begin, addiction seeks to deceive. A thought-rock foundation I stand upon is: my addict is not my nemesis! The addiction is my nemesis! So easy to get lost between the two!
This 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.
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.
There will be two e-books to follow in this triology of the Triumph of Prevailing Prayer and Addiction
Please leave a review of my e-book as it will assist me with revisions. You may connect with me: email@example.com. I am found also on LinkedIn. Website is under constructuion. Thank you for reading - may mighty Jehovah keep our addicts safe and deliver them from their bondage! Blessings, Jeannie

Tough-Loving My Heroin Addict A Lesson From The Parable of The Prodigal Son
by Jeannie Delahunt
Would you try to outrun, on foot, hundreds of crazed, stampeding buffalo! Living with an active heroin addict kind of felt like that - insanity! When all efforts failed to motivate her son to seek help, Jeannie referred to The Parable of The Prodigal Son - a story of pain, separation, hope and deliverance. This is the first in a trilogy of e-books - Prevailing Prayer and Addiction.
