  • Grace Notes

    I have a Facebook friend in Colorado, another Christian writer I’ve met with a number of times over the years at various Christian publishing events.

    For the past few years she’s been writing about her oldest son, Zach, who is a drug addict.

    He’s had periods of being clean, but they haven’t lasted. Last summer he nearly died from a drug overdose -- his third overdose in less than a year -- and spent several days in ICU on a respirator, suffering seizures.
