Thank you. I read
your book about Detaching from the Alcoholic Spouse over the weekend.
Your words rang true deep within my heart. Actually, on the way to
church, my son, who is studying with Moody Bible college almost repeated
verbatim what you wrote! May God bless you and your husband with this
very real ministry.
I LOVE YOUR column and I have your
book. I thought I was detaching but after reading today I
realize I have a long ways to go..
Hi Angie n
Frank, this book is
really helpful for me. now it is easy for me to understand my husband
and his alcohol problem. i will try my best to be calm n
patient while his drinking n give him all my love n
support.......................you guys are doing great job. keep it
up. God bless you. thanx.
I want to thank you for all you're doing to help those who are living
with this disease. I stumbled across your website last week on my 21st
anniversary. After 20 years of doing it the wrong way and separating
from my husband, I found Al-Anon and began my life anew. Everything you
say is so true. The first benefit of detachment is that you find peace
within yourself. As you gain strength, you begin to realize that you'll
be fine whether the alcoholic gets help or not. You're living your life
for yourself, your children, your job, your friends..... the good stuff.
I'm still saddened by the loss of the marriage I wanted to have, but I
know I can remain committed to him (in an emotionally safe way) and have
a great life at the same time. I wish you and your family a very happy
I downloaded your ebook How to
Detach... Info has been very helpful! Thanks for your time &
thanks for all the info! T.
this isn't so much a request for marriage guidance, but a thank you for
this website (Heaven Ministries).
It has answered questions that have remained unanswered for me for
a long time and very few people actually understand that I'm not mad to
stay with my husband who's an alcoholic binge drinker. I am a
Christian and love my husband. We need more articles of this type,
as opposed to 'get rid' and move on advice. Anyway, thanks again you
have really encouraged me and given me hope.
Angie Lewis's book gives insight into the mind of an alcoholic and
the chaos that ensues. I truly believe that most humans are touched by
either alcohol or an alcoholic at some point in our lives. This book is
a great resource and I encourage those who have authority to place this
book where many can draw from the experience, wisdom, and ministry that
Angie and her husband offer. (Review of Angie's book, The
Hi Angie. I
read all of the articles on your website on addiction in marriage.
I came across it via google and it gave me hope, as in my heart I
know I didn't marry the wrong person, even though people on the outside
would try and say different. Too many people give advice to
'jump ship', but I know divorce has it's own inherent problems. I
have learnt so many strategies for living life in peace, no matter what
the circumstances. It means a lot to me to have you and your
husband praying for my husband and marriage. I look
forward to reading more on your website and going back to the
material when I need a little encouragement!
Yesterday morning, I remembered I had purchased your book ďThe
Alcoholism TrapĒ. We sat down and read it aloud to each
other. Both of us found so much comfort in your words and the
bible verses. You are rightÖonly God can delivery Jim. Thank
you so much for the strength in your words!
I know the battle is not won and there is a long road and lifetime
commitment involved. But God is here! And your book helped
us to realize that. Thank you, Angela! And God bless you and
your ministry! G.M
