Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Proverbs 11:14

Grief Share

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend,
you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.
This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
But there is help available.

Moms of Prodigals 

Addiction is an epidemic.

SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (, estimates more than 20 million Americans struggle with drug addiction. This also means there are more than 20 million moms who are struggling to manage the profoundly confusing dynamics of loving an addict. I know firsthand how frustrating, lonely and baffling this can be.

Moms of Prodigals was started to bring moms together to talk, share, and pray with other moms who truly understand the strain addiction brings to a family.
If you are reading this I personally invite you to join Moms of Prodigals. We meet in the Coffee Room on the first Tuesday of the month from 6-7 pm.

If you have questions, please feel free to give me a call or text at 410-286-1631.
