She offers a rare, first-person insight into the mental and emotional effects of addiction, and what it takes to get and stay clean.

He explores common questions family members ask like:
- Why can't they just stop?
- Why did they turn to drugs when I gave them everything I could?
- Where did I go wrong?
- How do I help without enabling?
In a raw, real-time glimpse, father and daughter reveal the vulnerable letters they shared with each other during Danielle's rehab. With transparency, Rob and Danielle disarm the shame factor, and share lessons and resources to prevent and overcome setbacks.

God had blessed me by letting me participate in the book launch team for this title. As the adult daughter of an alcoholic father, there were so many points with which I could identify. In addition, many new and healing points were brought forth to me as well. 2019 overall, has been a year of personal ups and downs for me regarding my faith and relationship with Our Heavenly Father. Two quotes from the book with will remain with me for a very long time follow: Hear the Holy Spirit whisper, " Don't focus on past mistakes, and don't focus on future worries, live in the present. " Don't exchange what you do know for what you don't know.
