About this title


Her oldest son was killed in Vietnam. Five years later, to the day, another son died in a head-on car collision. Then another son, a practicing homosexual, left home and didn't tell his family where he went. This may not sound like the life of a woman known for bringing joy and laughter to others-but it is. That's Barbara Johnson's story. Fresh Elastic for Stretched Out Moms is for all parents whose hearts have been broken by their children. Johnson understands the hopelessness that they experience when children choose a rebellious lifestyle, sever a relationship, commit suicide, are seriously injured, are caught in an addiction, or engage in any other hurtful behavior. With compassion, understanding, and humor intact, she gently leads readers through a "year of recovery" to a fresh, hope-filled start. Through anecdotes, poems, jokes, poignant stories, and letters, readers will capture Johnson's infectious enthusiasm for life and learn to trust God for victory over depression and despair. Fresh Elastic for Stretched Out Moms will also prepare parents to uplift others who are in need of courage, love, laughter, and hope-just as Barbara Johnson continues to do. This second edition of her first-ever book contains a new preface by the author.

From the Back Cover:

Put some snap back into your stretched out life-with a new band of hope. Sometimes it's tough to let go of the past, live in today, and have hope for tomorrow. Especially when it comes to a lost or rebellious child. Fresh Elastic for Stretched Out Moms is for all parents whose hearts have been broken by their children. Humorist Barbara Johnson writes from experience-and from her heart. In this new edition of her first-ever book, Barbara shows how you can live with the heartaches and find the joy, even in the midst of pain. She shares how God's healing love, coupled with supportive friends and a healthy dose of self-care, are the emotional spatulas that scrape battered and bruised hearts off the ceiling to see another day. Barbara's stories, prayers, letters, jokes, and favorite Scriptures will bring you through the trials and restore your hope, laughter-and elasticity.
