The journey toward healing begins here
Whether he was there or not during your youth, your father has shaped and continues to shape who you are and how you function in every aspect of your life. And while our culture devalues the contribution that a father makes to a family, it is clear that those of us with an absent or detached father have an empty, undefinable longing--for Dad.
Making Peace with Your Father offers you a comprehensive look at the role of the father. It celebrates the positive influence a dad can have and uncovers the consequences that absent or abusive fathers have on their children. Most importantly, it takes you through eleven steps that will move you toward forgiveness so that you can make peace with your earthly father for the pain or difficulties he has brought to your life--allowing you to develop a closer relationship with your heavenly Father.
"A great tool for all who struggle with the father wound."--Stephen Arterburn, bestselling author of Every Man's Battle
"Whether you need help dealing with pain from your past or you just want to be a better dad to your children, you will find wisdom and encouragement here."--Gary J. Oliver, PhD, coauthor of Raising Sons and Loving It
