Moms want to help so bad that sometimes they help in unhealthy ways.
I’m the mother of a recovering addict. I know how you feel.
Your actions affect your child's recovery and YOUR life.
Your child's addiction is NOT your fault.
But how you handle your child's addiction matters.
Drug fatalities are on the rise.
Let us help you find JOY despite your addicted loved one's choices. Start today. Take care of YOU.

If you don't take time for your wellness, you'll be forced to take care of your illness.

Welcome to the Mighty Moms Club

Our focus is how to ruin our children’s “using” career and find joy in our lives. If that sounds like something you want to be a part of, you’re in the right place, and I’m super glad that you’re here! Are you ready to change the way you respond to your loved one’s addiction problems? I hope so!

How do you feel when you think your daughter’s drug addiction is ruining her life?
Hopeless, right? How do you cope with this hopeless feeling? Maybe you don’t. You might think, this isn’t really living; I’m dying inside because of her using career.

What do you have to do to start living for yourself?

Follow me as I take you on the journey where you transform from a seed to a flower. From a mom whose only focus is on her child, to a mom whose focus is on herself.

Using this flower analogy, you will work through seven transformational steps to letting go: Commitment; Self-Awareness; Inner Dialogue; Creating the Plan; Implementing the Plan; Progress, Reflection, and Vision; Helping Others and Living a New Life.

Once you master this shift in focus, you will help your adult child see that change is possible and that hope is the best four-letter word in the dictionary. Children do what children see—no matter how old they are. Once you show your child what hope looks like, your child will see your joy and want what you have.

This book will show you ways to change. There is no magical bullet to help your son or daughter get well. But you can make a difference by your responses to your child’s actions. To do this, you must first start with yourself.

I will give you suggestions based on my journey, but it’s up to you to act on the information. If my suggestions make you uncomfortable or they don’t resonate with you, ponder them for a while. We are all on a different journey and recovery works differently for everyone.

Our book review
A change of approach for moms of an addict, written by an author who has been in the same position and wants to use her experience to help others by offering support and guidance.  Using a flower analogy as steps of guidance, along with references to other helpful material, and inspirational mottos, the author begins to guide you through the change of approach to help both yourself and your child, giving you a chance to recover before you create your own illness.  Throughout the book you will work through easy, yet thought provoking, guided exercises to look closely at your thoughts and inner feelings and begin to see and feel clearly to change your own perspective before trying to help others.  The author explains that by taking away the addicts reliability on you as a parent will enable them to find their own way through, empowering themselves.

The author doesn't stop the support and guidance at this book, she genuinely wants to help your recovery and offers support through her social media and support group.
