As believers we're meant to cry "Abba, Father" and relate to God as blessed children---but often our experiences with an earthly parent stand in the way. Kassian explains how to overcome relational barriers from the past and assures you that the devoted, caring Father you've always wanted has been there all along. 224 pages, softcover from B&H.
We need to get to know God as Father and relate to Him as a blessed child. However, our relationship with our earthly father positively or negatively impacts how we relate to Father God. Mary Kassian encourages women to clear barriers hindering them from seeing their loving Heavenly Father, basing their relationship with God on the truth of who He is rather than falsehoods about Him.
