User Review  - jomomma - Christianbook.com

This book has been very helpful in identifying traits of mine that may be due to my past. It puts words to how I feel or respond to different situations. Once I gain that understanding, then I am free to see and recognize the truth about myself, and then apply God's truth to my heart and life. Read full review
