Yolanda, you are a blessing from God. I felt like I was reading my own life story. My 25 year old son has been an addict for 6 years. I cried while reading your book. All the same questions and all the nights staying up and praying for him. Thank you for the HOPE and ENCOURAGEMENT. I read your book in one night. The devil wants us to think we are all alone in this and we aren't! - R.K.

My husband I just got your book. My husband is not a reader but read the first two chapters to me, then stayed up until he finished it. We have been through 5 years of living through hell. Our son is 23, smart and compassionate and wasting so much. His drug of choice is heroine and the success rate to recover is said to be 3%. Your story helps people like us who feel so alone! Your advice at the end was so perfect and simple and met us just where God has taken us! After reading the book, we have seen a huge breakthrough and God's hand definitely guiding us. After being on the streets for 5 weeks, our son asked to be put in rehab. When I got the call that he had been taken to rehab, I broke down in thankfulness! - S.B.

I purchased Pastor Yolanda’s book and I can relate to a lot of what she says about having strong Godly influences in our lives. One of the things that God keeps telling me is to surround yourself with WISDOM and with TRUTH!!! I don’t struggle with drugs or alcohol but I do have my struggles but God is breaking EVERY chain that has had me bound and I WON’T GO BACK!!! -Donna Marsh

A magnificent story of how a Mother loves her family unconditionally. I just loved the way you poured your heart into it. It was as if you were living it all over again as you told the story. You made it very vivid for me. I am deeply encouraged by your sincerity in being devoted to your family and your ministry inspire of all the obstacles that came your way. You never gave up even on our darkest day. This book should and will bring hope to many as I found hope for those that I love and have not come to Christ. - Angela Taylor

To Hell And Back Book


I have two sons who have fought addiction and been in and out of jail. When I heard about the book, I wondered "could this woman possibly know what I have been through and would she be transparent in telling her story?" As soon as I started reading the book, it seemed all Hell broke loose! My son called from prison saying they wanted to extend his time. I cried out to God to help me, then I got texts from my other son, angry at me for wanting him to go to rehab. I started reading the book, crying all the way through and thanking God there was someone else who knew exactly what I had been through! I remember thinking, "I'm not alone - look at all these parents went through and they didn't give up no matter what. They stood their ground and today they have the victory." I found out that Pastor Yolanda would be speaking a few hours away from me and I went to hear her. Before I left, I got a call from my son in prison - God intervened and he was ordered to go back to rehab and a transitional facility. Pastor Yolanda spoke about persistence and endurance and then she called those out who needed a touch and said directly to me, "That woman needs a touch. Come here." She prayed for me and God touched me like I will never forget! What a blessing to me personally that she was so courageous to share her story in "To Hell and Back!" -S.T.
