Tom and Dena are from Orlando, Florida and are co-founders of Hope For Hurting Parents, a ministry to reach out and help parents struggling with their children. They have also written a curriculum for support groups to use.
Dena is the author of newly released book entitled "You Are Not Alone: Hope for Hurting Parents of Troubled Kids" These books will be available Thursday night. This is one of the best books I have ever read for Parents of Prodigals.
Tom and Dena will share their journey with their own daughter who struggled with addictions, self-injury and mental health issues. They will focus on what they have learned and what helped them cope over the past 12 years.
Topics will include grief and loss, guilt and shame, enabling, and how they guarded their marriage and the relationships with their other children. They also know the power of prayer and what we need most -Hope!
