Desperate times call for unconventional measures. When addiction recovery meetings moved online, I struggled to feel the Spirit. Then I found peace, inspiration and connection to God in an unexpected place – my grandfather’s grave. This is the story of how a cemetery became my holy sanctuary.
The statistics are shocking…One in ten Americans is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. And even more shocking is that only one in one hundred addicts will ever attain full life-long sobriety!

Join me now as I attempt to bring a little more public awareness to what has been a very private problem…and offer some solutions to help ALL of us overcome our weaknesses and shortcomings.
