Two compassionate and experienced counselors offer real-life stories and proven, practical counsel to help women recover from past and present wounds and to move them into a new season of productive living. (Practical Lilfe)
The authors, both licensed counselors, team up to offer Christian hope to
women in pain. They address seven kinds of wounds-physical, sexual, verbal,
social, spiritual, emotional and those wounds that result from our own poor
choices-as well as the hope offered by the God of the Bible. That hope comes
with work, and Stephens and Vredevelt don't hesitate to tell women that
healing their pain requires commitment, patience and trust. "God never
promised to keep us from wounds, but He did promise to be with us and to help
us heal," they say. "No matter how difficult our struggles or how deep our
wounds, they carry with them great lessons." Inspiration and honesty are
hallmarks, with issues such as grief, anger, anxiety, guilt and shame
discussed openly. The authors are just as candid on faith issues like prayer,
forgiveness and God's healing. This hard-hitting book offers no wiggle room
for women in the business of healing their wounds; pain, it argues, can "teach
us about ourselves, life, and God." Discussion questions at the end of each
chapter make the book useful for small-group study. (Jan.) Copyright 2005
