"EVERY PROBLEM" and need carries with it a gift. Every failure points us toward God, connecting us to the one who gives life meaning. The curse brings the blessing. God, you see, gives us exactly what we need- be that the problem or the solution " THE GIFT buried at the heart of life's pain. This is the treasure the author invites us to search for. In the midst of trouble and turmoil and tears, we can find pearls. Personal experience forced Joyce Shutt to look for hope in despair, strength in weakness. Once she thought she was strong enough to handle anything life could throw at her. Then her children hurdled over the abyss of alcoholism and forced her to her knees. Weaving her experience with Jesus' Beatitudes and the Twelve Steps used by Alcoholics Anonymous, Families Anonymous, and similar programs, Shutt shows us how we can break our addictions, failures, and sins become fountains of new joy. Steps to Hope offers families mired in the swamp of alcohol and drug addiction a path to higher ground. And it speaks to any of us trapped in destructive habits. It points us to God, who loves us even when we stutter and stumble.
