Wonderful book! Wish I would have known about it years ago. So helpful to me!!! Helped me realize that the emotions I am feeling from a childhood hurt are normal. Always thought I was an odd ball for the feelings I have had these last 30+ years. Helped me to understand that emotionally I stopped maturing at the age of the hurt and that also helped me understand why some of my behaviors seems so childish. David Seamands is a great author. Book was easy to read and understand. Helped me so much. I am now starting counseling to discover the real me instead of the super me. Thank you so much Mr. Seamands for writing this book!!!
A WONDERFUL BOOK, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO DEAL WITH REJECTION AND ABANDONMENT ISSUES. THIS BOOK CAN REALLY HELP! DAVID SEAMANDS IS A GREAT AUTHOR AND KNOWS ALOT ABOUT THE GRACE OF GOD AND THAT IS WHAT EVERYBODY NEEDS TO BE FREE OF THEIR PAST!
I read this book over 20 years ago when I was going through a divorce and separation due to different kinds of abuse. It was so helpful to me that I gave away my copy to someone else who needed it. Then I purchased this new copy to send to my brother who is now going through the same thing I did.
I was introduced to this book a long time ago by a couple of University Professors. As I read it, it helped me to understand so many things about relationships and how to put injurious practices and thoughts behind us and eventually be able to forget them. I have used the concepts in the book for bible class and for preaching. And I often have some on hand for loaning out to those with whom I am counseling. Say for a couple to read. She to underline significant parts with red and he in blue and then have each go back an read together and discuss the various parts that each considered important. Great book and it is always timely and doesn't go out of date.
