Helping heal brokeness
on October 24, 2011
In the second part of the book, my heart broke as I learned about the life-crushing fathers who caused Catherine and the the other girls to deeply distrust men in general and to resist any kind of belief in the unconditional love of a Heavenly Father. Because I had a loving earthly father, I hadn't realized before how easy it had been for me to rely on a heavenly father and how difficult trusting would be for someone not so richly blessed.
The carefully chosen questions at the end of each chapter provoked thought while the accompanying pertinent scriptures provided helpful answers. This exercise would be great for use in small group discussions as well as personal devotions.
In the last part of the book, the beautifully crafted letter addressed to the heart of each wounded young lady must surely help in the healing process. Reading the book inspired me and helped me understand hurting people better. I pray that I will grow in the grace I need to trust my Heavenly Father more and to be an instrument of His love to others. Thanks, Denise, for this wonderful book!
