Mac and Mary are in high school when they fall in love in the 70s. Knowing the disapproval and shame a teenage pregnancy will bring, they keep it a secret from their church and from most of their family and friends, and make the heartbreaking decision to give up their baby for adoption. Eventually they marry and begin their life together, but before long fun-loving Mac isn’t just a guy looking for a good time…he’s a meth addict.

God has a plan, however, and His timing is perfect. When Mac wakes up to the mess he’s made of their young family’s life, the couple seeks solace in their church and in recovery, beginning a miraculous journey that neither of them could have imagined.

A story about a family’s hurts and a father’s habits, transformed by God’s healing power.

“This book shows the power of God when humble men and women choose to surrender their lives to Him. The Robertsons and Owens are cut from the same cloth—the servant towel of Jesus!”– Phil Robertson, The Duck Commander from Duck Dynasty

“You may have heard them share their testimony at a seminar or on a ‘Testimonies to Go’ DVD, but you haven’t heard the whole story! I don’t think Travis Thrasher could have conjured up a fictional story any more dramatic than the profound truth of what God has done in Mac and Mary’s lives.”—John Baker, found of Celebrate Recovery

Mary Owen was born and raised in Monroe, Louisiana. Mary’s father, the late Alton Howard, was an entrepreneur who in 1946 founded Howard Bros. Jewelers. In 1959, he opened Howard Bros. Discount Stores. In 1969, he started Howard Publishing Co. Their home was also the publishing warehouse. Mary, as a teen, answered the phone to take orders, typed the invoices & would ship cases of books daily after school. Mary transcribed her father’s writings for twenty years. In 2006, they sold Howard Publishing to Simon & Schuster.

Mac Owen was a military child who moved to Monroe, Louisiana during high school. He opened M&M Millworks (cabinet shop) in 1984 and has been growing the business ever since.
