The purpose of For the Shattered Soul (Dealing With the Pain Within) is for the reader to find wholeness within God as He intended for your life. Author Catharine LJ Parks deals with how to find healing from your past wounds that allows you to move forward, healed and whole. Parks points out how Satan counterfeits everything good and worthwhile that God has created, and tries to get us to buy into that counterfeit option so as never to experience the true peace and joy that only God can give. She gives illustrations of events that have occurred within her own life so that the reader can quickly see how these have shattered her own emotions and peace.
Parks gives some wonderful thoughts concerning love in her chapter Rebellion Costs Lives.
