When you hear the word mother, what happens? Do you get a rush of love or a flare of anger? Does it conjure a pleasant memory or a painful flashback?
Maybe you feel guilty for even picking up this book. After all, in a lot of ways your mother is great. But for some reason, after talking to her, you are tense and irritable.
The effects of your mother-daughter relationship have probably followed you into adulthood.
If you have conflicting feelings toward mom―or if you wish you could get past some of the baggage that holds you back―this is your book. Combining spiritual disciplines and the best of current therapeutic practice, It’s Momplicated will help you discover
- How your early connection with your mother may have impacted your sense of self and your other important relationships―and what you can do to break the cycle
- Why you and your mother have the relationship you have―the underlying reasons that may be contributing to strain and unease
- Tools and exercises to help you cope with some of the most common effects of a broken relationship, including anxiety, depression, lack of confidence, and trust issues
- How to be the daughter and mother God wants you to be even if your mom wasn’t who you needed her to be.
It’s never too late to love, never too late to heal, and never too late to trust God to turn the pain in your story into a redemption song. As you read It’s Momplicated, you’ll realize that while God doesn’t promise to fix all your circumstances, He does promise to uphold you and lead you to a healing place of knowing you are truly precious and loved, no matter how your past has affected you.
