(Non-Fiction—True life story) Publication Pending
When betrayal crashes in on a life, the sheer magnitude of pain is overwhelming. Shock, grief and anger hit simultaneously. This true story of heart wrenching anguish includes journal entries from Blossom’s life to humanize the struggle thereby removing the sterile clinical approach. Friendly Fire, Seven Steps to Healing From Betrayal, offers compassionate support and real answers to difficult questions.
Practical advice is provided on how to manage the initial trauma, negotiate the decision-making process, and handle destructive emotions effectively. Whether your personal betrayal involves infidelity, a dishonest business partner, an abusive childhood, or that of a close friend, you can trust the following principles of truth from a person who has lived through all of the above and discovered no pain too big for God to heal.
Blossom and David’s story of restoration provides hope for marriages, but the focus of this book is on the necessity of inner healing regardless of the outcome. The importance of personal recovery, avoiding depression, and breaking free of the anger that leads to bitterness are highlighted. Knotty subjects such as forgiveness, rebuilding trust, and restoring a battered self-esteem are tackled with transparency and insightful wisdom.
A resounding message of hope literally jumps off the page from start to finish.
Warning: you cannot read this book without believing that inner healing is possible no matter what your circumstances.
