Shattered People: Journeys to Love

Shepherd's Care Publishing / SCPublishing, 2020 - 524 pages

Journeys to Love continues the saga of people being healed after a lifetime of abuse, as they discover and accept the truth about God's love. Walk beside them over the next four years as they begin to learn the reasons for their survival and why God said to them; "I will love you with an everlasting love and I will heal you. Your wholeness will be found in Me not as the world understands wholeness, but as I give it. You will remain a multiple for My purposes because each of you will have a testimony to give about My power to heal and receive all who come to Me." These people will struggle through life's most imposing questions facing all of us. What is God's definition of a person: body, mind, soul and spirit? Does the soul exist in two dimensions simultaneously and live beyond the body's death? Why does God save them, only to allow them to continue to suffer physically, emotionally and spiritually in this world? Why is evil so adamant in attempting to break their relationship with God? Can they trust God enough to survive in a world that doesn't accept them?

Recorded in the words of those persons' experiencing them, some of life's hardest issues are investigated, illustrated and documented in these books; spiritual warfare, clergy abuse, Satanic Ritual Abuse, evil in everyday life, spiritual healing and the reality of the power of the Kingdom of God at work in and around us. As the author of this series and a pastor & counselor specializing in spiritual issues I include a running commentary of their journey as a clinical study of their journey with their first counselor and then with me. I include definitions of terms used for understanding the care given then and what we learn together about God's love, healing, plans and will for all of His children.

While this book covers the next 4 years, I am updating the information shared in the prefaces and prologues of both books to include new understanding of these issues learned over the next 20 years of my counseling relationships with hundreds of clients / friends and their journeys to understand who God is and why He loves them...and why they can trust Him. However, their personal stories will be revealed in another series without any added commentary or study by me, which are autobiographical in nature in the series Loved Back to Life being released in May 2020. Our hope with this new series is the same as with Shattered People that our readers will have support and more opportunities to know and trust our Heavenly Father's ongoing and unconditional love for them... how He has never abandoned them and is waiting for each to accept and receive His healing love.

"For I know the plans I have for you, ' declares the Lord, 'to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
