You Are Not Alone
15 in stock
You would go to the ends of the earth for your child. So, if your teenager or young adult is in the midst of crisis due to self-injury, mental illness, depression, bullying, or destructive choices, you probably feel broken, powerless, and isolated.
Dena Yohe wants you to know you are not alone. You are not a bad parent. And you are going to be okay.
Dena has been where you are. In You Are Not Alone, she speaks from experience as she offers healthy ways to maintain your other relationships, suggestions for responding to friends who don’t understand, and ideas for keeping up your emotional and spiritual well-being when your world feels as if it’s crashing down. It is possible to find purpose in your pain, joy beyond your fear, and hope for every tomorrow.
Includes prayers, exercises, websites, and other helpful resources.
“You Are Not Alone is a powerful resource written by a mom who learned how to live through her daughter’s cutting, drug addiction, and depression. Her story gives Christian parents permission to be honest with their anguish, guilt, shame, and fear, but also gives them tools so they don’t get lost in their child’s poor choices. One of the most helpful chapters teaches how parents love their wayward child yet emotionally detach. You will learn to stop enabling, covering, or protecting, and to trust God with your child’s future without forsaking your own.” —Leslie Vernick, LCSW, relationship coach, speaker, and author of The Emotionally Destructive Marriage and The Emotionally Destructive Relationship
“Dena Yohe transparently and compassionately offers God-centered, biblically grounded help and hope to parents in crisis. She shares what she has learned on her journey and reminds every parent that in the midst of the pain, you are not alone.” —Bob Lepine, co-host of FamilyLife Today
