Offering Hope to Families Experiencing Drug Addiction – Mac and Mary Owen Part 2

During the 1970s, Mac and Mary Owen grew up in Christian homes but were drawn to the fun-loving & non-judgmental “party & drug crowd” of their high school. They were young and in love, and their reckless lifestyle led to two unplanned pregnancies, a rushed marriage, and eventually a full-blown addiction for Mac as he experimented with harder and more dangerous drugs. You can find their book on our store here: http://bit.ly/2RpmJod

Mary returned to her Christian faith and prayed fervently for Mac’s salvation. Mac almost died from a drug overdose, but his heart was eventually broken by his 4-year-old daughter’s announcement that “If Daddy isn’t going to church, I’m not either.” Mac went through an intense recovery process, and today he and Mary are national leaders for Celebrate Recovery, a Christian recovery ministry for addicts and their family members.
