Welcome to my little part of the planet, this electronic space dedicated to hope, healing, faith, family, recovery and the awesome beauty to be discovered every day in our every day – in all its glory and all its down and dirty grittiness. This little space – I like to think of it as the front porch of the century-old farm house I love and live in – grew out of the book, Unchained: Our Family’s Addiction Mess Is Our Message, which I wrote with my son JP. Our front porch is where we welcome those coming to our home and it’s a great spot to sit and enjoy the company of family and friends. Our family’s journey has continued since the last page of Unchained. And I invite you to join me in exploring the invitations life continually offers us to heal, to grow, to change and to recover the best part of who we were created to be.
