The Lord is doing some serious work in me and this book was the "kick start" I needed to dig deep and deal with some issues from my past. Barbara has a very easy step-by-step process for dealing with past bonds and does it in a very encouraging way. I can't wait to finish the book and see how it changes my marriage!
Kiss Me Again by Barbara Wilson is a book I will recommend. But because of the delicate subject matter, I will be careful when I recommend this book. This is not a light read. Some of the stories shared in the book are heartbreaking.The interesting thing about this book is that it serves its readers well in different ways. It provides factual information at the same time it provides emotional support to those who need healing in this area. It can be an intensely personal book while it can serve as a resource about this important subject. In my copy of the book, I have earmarked for later use these segments: * the Biblical perspective about sex including a list of six reasons God gave us sex. * a list of talking points to use when talking to your kids about sex. discussion about the damage done by todays hooking-up culture. * the study guide at the back of the book with life-building scripture references.But mostly, this is a book about healing for women and restoration for marriages. It confronts wrong choices made and bad stuff that happens and the way those events impact our view of sex. It exposes lies to the light and encourages growth. Mostly it offers hope. And that makes this book worth picking up.
