God showed up and took us on a journey that required obedience and submission to him. The ultimate test of trust.

After her daughter struggled with addiction as a teenager, Elizabeth Anthony penned “Over the Falls: A Mother's Story of Navigating Addiction & the Teenage Years” (published by WestBow Press) to share her daughter’s story and tell how faith helped their family have hope.

“Drug use has no boundaries,” Anthony says. “It does not discriminate. It happens in all classes and walks of life. It is always a source of pain to everyone.”

The book chronicles Anthony’s daughter Kaci’s struggle with drugs. Anthony includes particulars about how she, her husband and their son Brody were all affected by the choices Kaci made. Rather than ending with the family rent asunder, the story shows how the family’s faith in God proved to be a source of strength and, ultimately, healing.

“God showed up and took us on a journey that required obedience and submission to him. The ultimate test of trust,” Elizabeth says. “God CAN be trusted to walk us through the most difficult situations regardless of the outcome.”
