Moms Letting Go Without Giving Up
I believe that healing happens in communities.
I'm committed to helping moms of addicted loved ones recover from the addiction chaos.
When moms are consumed with worry, rescuing and helping their addicted loved ones,
they lose their purpose and who God created them to be.
I invite you to join our movement to stop the stigma of addiction, educate yourself, and find support, so you can recapture your life's purpose.
Who We Are:
Our MISSION Statement :
We seek to unite and educate moms who are committed to understanding addiction and changing the way they respond to their addicted loved one’s choices.
Our goal is for all moms of ALO’s to speak boldly about the addiction crisis. The world needs to change their attitude about addiction, and it starts with moms.
Our tribe of moms (Mighty Mom Movement) are committed to changing the way they take care of themselves, so they can empower their children to seek recovery.
We hope every mom will learn to speak boldly about stopping the addiction crisis.
Recovery must start with our own self-leadership.
We are the CHIEF HOPE BUILDERS.
Internal – We love ourselves enough to understand why we need the oxygen mask first. We love our addicted loved ones enough to let go of the chaos, but always love our child and never give up.
External – We help reduce the stigma of addiction by taking time to educate others.
TO LET GO ...
Doesn't mean you stop caring. It means you realize you can't control your adult children.
Is not to cut yourself off from your addicted children, it's the realization that you can only control yourself.
Doesn't mean you enable, it means you allow learning from natural consequences.
Is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in your hands.
Is not to try to change or blame your children, you can only change yourself.
Is not to care FOR your children, but care ABOUT them.
Is not to fix, but be supportive.
Not to judge, but to allow your children to be human beings.
Is not to be in the middle arranging outcomes, but to allow your children to affect their own outcomes.
Is not to be protective, but to permit your children to face reality.
Is not to deny, but to accept.
Is not to nag, scold or argue, it's to search out your own shortcomings and correct them.
Is not to adjust everything to your desires, but to take each day as it comes and cherish the moment.
Is not to criticize and regulate your children, but to dream of what you can be.
Is not to regret the past, but grow and live for the future.
I was the only girl in a family with five brothers. I learned how to fight like a boy, but I never expected to have to fight for my son's life because of his substance use disorder.
When I was waiting in the gap for my son to choose recovery, suffering and watching him throw his life away, I ached for a community to help me and found none.
So I created one. I provide Moms with the kind of place I wanted but couldn't find.
Over 3000 Moms are reading my book, Moms Letting Go Without Giving Up, 7 Steps to Self Recovery.
Over 1100 Moms find support in our private FB community, MomsLettingGo.
What Moms Say
Moms in our group heal every day!
This group has helped me so much over the last several months. When you said, "help or encourage with love," it helped the judgement, hurt and disappointment to go even when things were not good.
Now I’m trying to step back and encourage her with love and no judgement. I’m planning to find a volunteer position.
My thoughts are definitely a little lighter right now....I also know that things can change, but I will try to keep that calm, loving spirit.
Thank you always for all the encouragement from you and all the beautiful Moms!
Just your whole message was so encouraging for me as a mom of addict.
I’ve learned so much from this group. You do a wonderful job .
We don’t know where to turn and our friends have no idea what we’re going through. God has blessed you with this ministry and led me here!!!
This group has really made the difference in me. I thank God I have it!!!
Wonderful amazing people all working to support each other. Just amazing!
I have read your book. The analogy of a plant from seed to bloom is so spot on. Brilliant! The journaling sections have prompts that will make you really dig deep. Things that have been suppressed and need to be revisited are gently but clearly suggested. Love that it allows you to pause and come back refreshed and looking forward to the next chapter of growth.
