“More Than A Promise”: a heartfelt message of hope for others facing similar heartbreak. “More Than A Promise” is the creation of published author Diane Boyette, a dedicated wife and a graduate of Belmont University, Nashville, Tennessee, holding a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. She is also a graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law, Oxford, Mississippi, from which she attained her Juris Doctor in 2004. Boyette currently practices law as in-house counsel, serving as vice president and chief compliance officer of Southern Farm Bureau Life Insurance Company in Jackson, Mississippi.

Boyette shares, “Our lives are filled with unique challenges that either make or break us. Often, we find that on the other side of a ‘breaking,’ something new, strong, and incredibly beautiful emerges. It’s like the phoenix that emerges from the ash heap.

“Such is the beauty found in More Than A Promise. Diane Boyette tells the story of how her brother and her family faced incredible heartbreak and pain as they encountered the many challenges brought about by her brother’s lifelong battle with drug addiction. With three months to live, she shares the intimate story of how they walked him right up to his very last breath in his final life battle with lung cancer.

“This riveting saga of a family's painful struggle through drug addiction highlights broken promises and shattered dreams across more than four decades. Though difficult to see at times, threads of faith and hope are found woven into their lives. In the end, the power of prayer and forgiveness emerges stronger than the power of addiction.

“Addiction touches many lives in deeply painful ways. It can leave lifelong scars on the hearts and souls of the addict, as well as those who love him or her. These scars can be beautiful reminders of how God's incredible grace and mercy follows each of us day by day throughout our lifetime. God's promise of Barry's redemption is fulfilled in this story, but more than a promise is found in these pages.

“‘Surely Your goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.’ Psalm 23:6”
