Beautiful Nate (Library Edition) :  A Memoir of a Family's Love, a Life Lost, and Heaven's Promises

   
Author: Dennis Mansfield 

Even when you follow all the rules, life can go very wrong... Dennis Mansfield and his wife, Susan, planned for and expected every parent’s dream, but instead lived every parent’s nightmare. This haunting memoir tells the story of a father who diligently followed all the parenting rules that he learned from conservative Christian “experts” — yet life with his son Nate went terribly wrong when the young man died at twenty-seven of drug-related causes. It wasn’t that the principles Dennis followed were faulty; it was that the promised guarantee turned out to be void. The author, a national leader in the pro-family movement of the 1990s, reveals what did and did not work while raising a child within the evangelical framework. But rather than losing his faith and abandoning the God he’d trusted, Dennis eventually found new joy and purpose — with a more compassionate and realistic view of the roles parents play and the rules they follow. As you listen to this sobering yet refreshing account, you will find direction for your own parenting style and encouragement after life’s disappointments.

About The Author:

Dennis Mansfield was a leader in the evangelical public policy arena and pro-family movement for almost two decades. He helped lead the fight for traditional family values while working in association with Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council. An early leader in the Promise Keepers movement, Dennis led the efforts to launch Promise Keepers across the nation, beginning with the first regional event in Boise, Idaho, and he was the Pacific Northwest host for the first Promise Keepers Radio. As a candidate for the U.S. Congress in 2000, Dennis learned of his elder son’s drug use when it was discovered by the media just five days before his unsuccessful bid for election. Dennis and Susan then turned their attention to helping drug addicts and their families, only to see the death of their son in 2009. In that same year Dennis helped form 8:4 Pictures with Larry and Eugene Kelly; he currently writes and works there as an executive producer.
