Readers find freedom from their shame: "I was blown away at how accurate it describes the mind and the way shame affects so many areas of our lives from perfectionism to the way we raise our kids. The biggest takeaway for me was discovering how the shame I'd lived with had actually influenced the way I parented my child."

"This has been the best purchase I have made this year. I wish I would have come across it sooner. An extremely good read and very helpful. I would recommend it and have recommended it to many of my close friends."

"I can't say enough about this book, I wish I could give it a ten. Well written and right to the point. Everything you need to know about healing your past and moving on."

Don't Let Your Past Hurt Define You

Many people let the hurt from their past define them. As a result, they live in a world of depression, often trying to medicate their pain with drugs, alcohol and various self-destructive behaviors. Why is that? The answer, in a word, is shame.

The Role of Shame in Your Life

Shame declares you to be worthless. Once you believe that lie, you will live as if it’s true. With your self-esteem in jeopardy, you scramble to find value in three primary ways: + striving to prove your worth, + seeking to hide your worthlessness, + living out your worthlessness in self-destructive ways, including suicide.

A Biblical Case for Self-Esteem.

F. Remy Diederich connects the dots to your shame based behavior, helping you understand why you do what you do. Then he gives practical advice on how God's love can free you to live the life you've always wanted.

Remy roots his help in a strong biblical case without being religious or preachy. Even non-believers will find help. You will learn:

  • What shame is.
  • How the lies you believe control and defeat you.
  • The roots of shame: what events from your past lead to shame.
  • The fruit of shame: how shame manifests in your life in self-destructive ways.
  • How God’s love is the antidote for shame, giving you the self-esteem and purpose you've longed for to live a new life.
  • Questions at the end of each chapter help you to process the material personally or to discuss it in a small group setting.

    From the Author:

    People often ask me which book of mine they should start reading first. Healing the Hurts of Your Past (HHYP) is the best first step. In it you'll get an overview of what undermines your self-worth and how that plays out in your life in destructive ways. But more than describing your problem, HHYP offers a solution to help you root your self-worth in the solid foundation of God's unconditional love. 
    HHYP is written in a casual style, as if I'm talking to you in my office, helping you walk through your problems. If you have contemplated counseling but haven't quite gotten up the nerve, HHYP is a good way to start the process.

    About the Author:

    F. Remy Diederich is the author of five books, STUCK, Healing the Hurts of Your Past, Return From Exile, Starting Over, and Out of Exile. He is the founding pastor of Cedarbrook Church in western Wisconsin. Remy also consults with Arbor Place Treatment Center as well as leads retreats for pastors.
