Sometimes the painful experiences and feelings of childhood may be endlessly recreated
in adulthood, making anger, depression, worry, fear, and suffering pass from one
generation to another. Here is a Bible-based approach to emotional healing for anyone
who has grown up in a dysfunctional family. Questions for reflection and writing
assignments make the recovery process personal and powerful.
We used God, I’m Still Hurting in a group study where it helped many to see that
Biblical truth and emotional healing go hand in hand. One member said, ‘I’ve been
hurting all my life . . . a slow death. This material helped me to see the other
side, the side of the living and personal God whom I could finally call my loving
Father. Personally, I have found tremendousinsights into the healing of fear and
guilt carried since childhood. One cannot help but be touched by the sincerity and
simplicity of the truths presented in this book.

Here is a sample of text from the God, I’m Still Hurting workbook.
Seeking the truth is the first step toward recovery. Honesty about what happened
to us as children is essential.

We look back at childhood in order to understand and deal with our difficulties.
We do not look back in order to blame our parents. The mistakes they made were
probably the same ones their parents made — and the same ones we could make with
our own children. As long as we blame others for our problems, we will think like
victims and remain trapped in those problems.
When we accept responsibility, not for what happened, but for how we respond to what
happened, we are in a position of power. We have the power to change and to grow.
We have the power to choose a happier way of life. This power comes from God.
