150177: Someone Someone's Son: A Mother's Fight for Her Gay, Drug-Addicted Son
By Brenda Rhodes

Sexual molestation...addiction...homosexuality...HIV/AIDS...illness and hospitalization...death. Sadly, these markers on life's road are familiar ones to Brenda Rhodes. In Someone's Son, Brenda describes how she watched her sensitive, creative son, Ronal Paul, self-destruct as he traveled down this path. She seemed powerless to pull him back to safety.

Someone's Son is a memoir of personal tragedy, but it's more than that. It's an account of God's faithful love for a prodigal. Beginning with her own history, Rhodes unflinchingly writes of the years she strayed away from God. At the end of her resources, she heard Him urging her to let Him be God in her and her son's lives. She did, and she found hope at the end of the road.

Someone's Son will touch your heart, stir your faith, and awaken your concern for those struggling with addiction and other serious issues. It will leave you with the confidence that when you encounter someone like Ronal Paul, you'll realize he or she is not just another drug addict or AIDS patient. She's someone's daughter-and he's someone's son.
