Making Beauty from Ashes: Craig Svensson on FamilyLife Today, Part Three

When we see our kids headed in the wrong direction, we want to help turn them around. But ultimately, it’s our child’s choice.

After fifteen years on and off the streets, and in and out of hospitals, Svensson tells how Eric lost his battle with addiction in January 2017, dying sick and alone at the age of thirty.
