A Song to Heal Melody’s Heart

The mother of a drug addict carries around a lot of hurt in her heart.

Anger at the pills or powder that have taken her child. Fear of the phone call that will surely someday come — with news of an accident, an arrest, an overdose or worse. Guilt over the things she could or should have done. Sadness about her family that may never again be whole.

Melody, of Arizona, felt all of these emotions and more as she watched her 20-year-old son Trevor fall deeper and deeper into addiction.

Desperate for hope

Alone with her thoughts was when Melody felt the most hopeless. Often, to keep her mind from despair, she would turn on the radio to keep her mind occupied.

“I usually listened to country, rock or pop,” says Melody. “But I started to notice I always felt sad when I listened to those stations.”

Music from heaven

One day, while driving in her car, Melody stumbled upon Family Life Radio.

This music is so different, she thought to herself, as she let the lyrics wash over her. “Today, Family Life Radio is the only station I listen to,” says Melody. “I now feel uplifted when I listen to the radio. As soon as I turn it on, it’s exactly
the song I needed to hear.”

Lives transformed, hearts healed

Hurting people like Melody are so grateful for the hope and peace you make possible through Family Life Radio.

“I realize now, I was so thirsty for the Lord and His guidance during a difficult time,” said Melody. “Thank you for being there for me and others. God bless you all!”

Today, as Melody continues to watch her son, Trevor walk the dark path of addiction, she finds refuge in God through Family Life Radio. Thank you!
