The modern family faces unprecedented challenges and threats. It is not hard to find shocking statistics of divorce, abuse, and painful family patterns at every turn . . even in the most surprising places and in the families you’d least expect.
But the patterns don’t have to continue. They can be stopped.
Unlocking Your Family Patterns combines biblical insights with decades’ worth of counseling wisdom and pastoral care into one practical resource. There is hope for healing in your relationships, there are lessons to learn from other people, and there are paths toward health for your own family.
Your past may hurt, and your family’s patterns may have left emotional scars, but your future has not yet been written.
