Never Let Go | The Journey Is Everything
There were several moments in the book where I was reminded of how perfect God's timing is and how we don't always realize the purpose some people have in our lives until later. I will be looking more into Celebrate Recovery! The only reason I knocked off a star is because the novel I have jumped from chapter 53 to 54 to 53 to 56 which had me confused and feeling like I was missing something.
I'm assuming something got messed up in editing or printing but it was slightly distracting. Minor details though! Jun 14, Denise rated it liked it. What can I say? I'm a sucker for true stories with happy endings. Jul 29, Kevin rated it it was amazing. Mac and Mary Owen lived a life that could have inspired any of a number of made-for-TV movies where the pregnant girlfriend agonizes over the decision to give a baby up for adoption or the meth-addicted husband ends up going to rehab, but no made-for-TV movie could ever be as inspiring as the true story of the Owens and the restoration that God worked in their lives.

The Owens now work with Celebrate Recovery, a ministry dedicated to helping those needing God's forgiveness and deliverance from addictions. Never Let Go tells the story of the years leading up to their starting and working in a church step program, their work helping others, and the eventual switchover to the Celebrate Recovery program after attending a Celebration Recovery summit. From the time Mac and Mary met in high school, there was an attraction between the two.
Never Let Go
Their attraction grew and love bloomed. An unexpected pregnancy led to their first born child being adopted and years of wondering how their baby was doing. Mac's love of Mary didn't keep him from smoking weed and eventually trying meth. But it Mac's encounter with God after their youngest daughter asked why "Daddy doesn't do anything with us anymore" when life began to change for the Owens and Mary's answered prayers showed the faithfulness of a loving God.
Never Let Go is a wonderful testimony of God's grace, mercy, and faithfulness, the power of prayer, and the tools He uses to minister to people hurting because of chemical and co-dependency addictions and more , and I encourage everyone to read this book. Aug 18, Sharee rated it it was amazing.

This is a very emotional book… in the context that you are allowed to walk through the valleys and peaks with Mac and Mary Owen as they share their life story. Thrasher was able to relay their life into a truly riveting story and made you feel like you were right there with them. I would highly recommend this book to everyone, but especially for those that have found themselves in the low point of their lives and are looking to a way to turn it around.

As another reader put it "this is an emotional book", but it is one that has a great lesson for all of us. The book helped give me insight to the program Celebrate Recovery -- and how all of us have "Hurts, Hangups and Habits", they might not be like what Mac and Mary Owen went thru -- but we all have them!!!! Very good book, and worth every moment I spent reading it. Sep 27, Theresa Smith rated it really liked it.
Enjoyed this book - quick read but good testimony of a married couple fighting addiction and coming to freedom in Christ. It tells their story without graphic detail and foul language which I appreciated. Jan 05, Penny rated it it was amazing. Awesome book and life story from an awesome God changed couple! I just said their story had to be told in a book form. A year later, the book is at the printer ready to be printed. God is using Mac and Mary in an amazing way.
It really, truly is a beautiful story.
