Tom and Dena Yohe

Host: Dr. James Dobson

May 18, 2022

On today’s edition of Family Talk, Tom and Dena Yohe assure hurting parents of children and teens in crisis that they are not alone. This mom and dad firmly believe that no matter what happens, you shouldn’t ever give up on your kids, and always trust in God! Throughout the Yohes’ heartache, God never abandoned them. After being in a revolving door of mental health therapy and in-patient care, Tom and Dena’s daughter moved back home where her parents established a tough-love, substance-free boundary. She was a prodigal daughter with destructive behaviors, but because her parents stuck together and provided unconditional grace with unshakable faith, the family was able to survive it all and help their daughter recover.

Meet the Guest


Tom and Dena Yohe

Tom and Dena Yohe (pronounced "yoy") are the co-founders of Hope for Hurting Parents, a ministry designed to support parents who are grappling with destructive behaviors and other harmful choices that their teens and adult children have made. The ministry was born out of the couple’s journey with their daughter, who suffered from depression, addiction, self-injury and suicidal thoughts. Thankfully, she is in recovery and has improved a great deal. In turn, the Yohes are thriving as a family, as God intended. Tom previously served as a senior pastor for 17 years, and was a senior staff member with Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) for 14 years. His wife, Dena, previously served as a social worker, Cru staff member, and is the author of the book, You Are Not Alone: Hope for Hurting Parents of Troubled Kids. They have three grown children, enjoy being grandparents, and live in Orlando, Florida.
