Many excellent and informative books have been written on addiction. These books have provided information about the nature of the disease, characteristics of the addictive life-style, and ways to offer recovery to the addict. There have also been helpful books written on the dynamics of family life when family members have an individual who has an addiction. However, few books have been written to help families as they struggle with the faith questions and issues that arise when addiction is a part of the family. This book will help families deal with these faith questions and issues such as where is God, how do I pray, and is there hope? This book is written for families that are dealing with the addiction of a family member. It is intended to address the faith issues that these families are struggling with as they also deal with the family dynamics associated with addiction.

You Can Thrive–Not Just Survive–in An Unequally Yoked Marriage Marriage is challenging, even under the best of circumstances. But for those of us whose husbands don’t believe or are not growing spiritually, marriage brings difficulties unlike those faced by other women of faith. If you love a man who is not committed to Christ, you may feel frustrated, guilty, or anxious; discouraged and lonely. You likely worry about how your husband’s beliefs–or lack of them–will affect your children. Perhaps you, like so many women, have tried to “help” your husband find or deepen his relationship with God–only to find that you have, unbelievably, pushed him farther away. You may be wondering, “What do I do now?” Or, worse, you may have lost all hope. God is still in control. Speaking from experience, Nancy Kennedy offers biblical truth, practical help, and comforting insight from women who have walked in your shoes–and who have come to better trust God and more fully understand what to do (and what not to do) When He Doesn’t Believe. From the Trade Paperback edition.
