Chronicles of a Child of an Alcoholic Parent articulates the authors struggles through a diverse set of circumstances only to realize that physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual health and well-being can only be found in trusting the truth of Gods Word. Easy as it may be to blame everyone else for the unfair conditions that God has allowed into her life, the author converses with the reader honestly and candidly through a diary of her childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Growing up in dysfunctional homes can make it easy to excuse the dysfunction found in our adult homes, but it is never Gods intention for our families to remain addicted to pain without hope for healing. Trust Gods leading as you read through this extraordinary journey.
In my many years spent as a mental health therapist, Ive worked extensively with fractured family systems and their members who courageously pursue recovery from emotional, physical, and psychological trauma. Trauma survivors are the most courageous people as they work through and beyond the pain and entrapment of victimization to retrieve their hearts and dreams as they embrace lives of strength, empathy, and immeasurable value. This heartfelt book is a reflection of the indomitable strength of the human spirit and power of faith.
