* Have you ever screamed out the words, “My Life Sucks!”?
* Have you ever been in a destructive pattern of behavior that you knew – if you did not change – would end up killing you?
* Have you ever sunk so deep into an addiction rut that you were sure you would never be able to get out?
* Have you ever been plagued with torturous thoughts that screamed at you, condemning you to a life of failure and hopelessness?
If any of the above describes you and your life up to this point, be encouraged. The book entitled The Hard Way written by recovered addict – and now youth pastor – Jeremy Donovan points the way to help you get out of your rut. Out of your destructive lifestyle.
Author Jeremy Donovan has been there; done that. He wrote The Hard Way because he wants to show others the way out.
“I had no one to show me the way,” Jeremy says. “In my hours of desperation, I came across so many books and guides to help me become successful in life. Success was not what I was looking for when lying at rock-bottom of my rut. I just wanted someone to show me how to be normal.”
Why the title The Hard Way? By Jeremy’s own confession, all through his life, he always had to learn by doing things the hard way. He sees the same behavior patterns in others who are trapped in addictions.
In The Hard Way you will find stories of Jeremy’s addictions and bondage; as well as the struggle and pain of breaking free from the bondage. The book also provides a guide that anyone can follow to break free from whatever bondage you may find yourself in.
“There’s a huge difference between bondage and temptation,” Jeremy points out. “I know the pain and absolute agony of desperately wanting to be free, and yet not knowing how to find that freedom.”
Thousands of addicts on a daily basis are screaming out, “My life sucks!” Family and friends fail to understand why that person cannot resist temptation. The problem is, the individual who is in bondage is past the point of fighting. There is no fight left in them. Jeremy knows and understands that level of desperation.
A father at the age of nineteen, he couldn’t support his baby son, the baby’s mother or himself. At age twenty-one Jeremy suffered a brain aneurysm that nearly killed him. His life journey took him in and out of mental institutions, through attempted suicides, and finally to a rehab center where he came face-to-face with his loving Heavenly Father and his life was forever changed.
Ten years out of his drug addition, on the road to health and wholeness, Jeremy’s heart-desire is reach out a helping hand to others who are still in the pit of bondage.
In The Hard Way, Jeremy pours out his heart in order to tell his story as honestly and forthrightly as possible. “The pain I went through is worth it,” he says, “if that pain can help even one person out of their bondage.” Then he adds, “You don’t have to learn the hard way. Let The Hard Way supply you with the needed tools to break forever free!”
