Overview Forget the past and reach ahead to the life God has for you!
Your heart is like a trunk-a suitcase you carry with you throughout your life. And without a doubt, nothing can hinder your spiritual growth as much as letting a little unforgiveness into your trunk. Its poison soon seeps into your relationships with God, family and friends-and will eventually destroy you.

A much-needed lesson in letting go of the past Nov 2, 2005
As a pastor and missionary for the past 25 years, Duane Vander Klok has discovered that the common underlying cause for many damaged lives is bitterness. GET THE JUNK OUT OF YOUR TRUNK is a straightforward, non-pedantic handbook for anyone who is tired of carrying around "junk" from the past. It is also an excellent tool for those helpers among us who grow weary of listening to troubled friends who continue to complain about the same problems yet refuse to make any changes in their thinking. By giving clear examples and by showing how to apply Biblical principles, Pastor Vander Klok has provided a powerful self-help and counseling tool.
A popular saying over the past decade has been "stuff happens," and the author shows it to be Biblically accurate. Jesus says in Luke 17: "It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come." In other words, it would be unusual to go through life and not have people offend, mistreat and criticize us. However, the crucial issue is not to store those hurts and offenses in our hearts, or else they will weigh us down and keep us from enjoying life. Just as a heavy suitcase drags us down physically, so a heavy heart drags us down emotionally and spiritually.
Granted there is a big difference between letting go of bitterness toward a classmate who rejected your friendship and letting go of bitterness toward an uncle who molested you. Yet, as one works through the process of forgiveness and immerses oneself in God's truths, it becomes easier to see that when we forgive, it is we who benefit. So, regardless of the magnitude of the problem, the principles work.
With study questions at the end of each enriching chapter, this little book should become a favorite with Sunday School classes and Bible Study groups. Thank you, Pastor Vander Klok, for a much needed lesson.
Easy Read and Very Powerful Oct 4, 2005
My husband read this book first and realized that he had been carrying around bitterness for many years and it was destroying his life. It was an amazing transformation, by God's grace, how he changed after reading this book. He was full of joy and love again. I would highly recommend this book for ANYONE because we all at some time have been hurt or wronged by someone that we have found hard to forgive. This book shows you the poison it is in our lives to carry unforgiveness and bitterness. Our small group is now reading it and enjoying it.
