Item description for The Blessing by Gary Smalley...

Now family counselors Gary Smalley and John Trent, Ph.D., show us how we can transform our lives-even when it is no longer possible to receive our parents' blessing, and offer practical, effective methods to heal broken hearts and families.

Publishers Description
Brian spent a lifetime seeking his father's approval. His father wanted him to be the best and the brightest, and Brian tried - desperately When his father lay dying, Brian rushed to his bedside to plead one last time, "Please say you love me, please "
We all have a powerful need to know that someone in this world loves us and accepts us unconditionally. We especially crave our parents' blessing, and without it, we may become angry and driven, or detached and empty. We may also feel this hurtful lack between brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, or even within our religious congregation.
Now family counselors Gary Smalley and John Trent, Ph.D., show us how we can transform our lives - even when it is no longer possible to receive our parents' blessing. They reveal the five key elements of the blessing, describe the most common home situations where a blessing has been denied (one of them may be ours), and offer practical, effective methods to heal broken hearts and families. Most important, they explain how we can be a blessing, and pass on that life-changing gift to our love ones.

Reading this book revealed my blessings from others...

well written...
Book "The Blessing" can be used throught your life!  Aug 25, 2006
This book shows how you can be a blessing to others; how to bless and encourage. I have used if for many years. I found it very useful in my work with children and adults. It is one of the most useful books I have ever read. If you have any interaction with people, I encourage you to read this practical, short book. Your life and the life of those around you will be better for it.
I wish I had read this years ago...  Mar 17, 2004
It would have helped me be a better father. But it's never to late to learn and improve. Don't pass it up.
read with care  May 16, 2003
An okay book. Just pick out the good parts and overlook the preaching (there's lots of that).
A childhood of chaos becomes poetry.  Apr 22, 2003
This memoir is heartbreaking. Out of a careless and addicted family that was plagued by accidental deaths and day to day chaos, Gregory Orr grew to be a poet. His guilt at killing his younger brother caused him to examine each day and each experience with a keen appreciative eye. His childhood, after the hunting accident that killed his brother, was a bleak landscape of depression and guilt. And yet, he appreciates life and it's beauty.

This is the story of how he overcame his desolate adolescence and threw himself into the Civil Rights movement as blood payment on his sense of guilt. He also analyses his parents' marriage and his father's addiction to speed that made his childhood so disorganized and unstable. His survival of both childhood and barely avoiding becoming a civil rights martyr marks the beginning of his healing. Living through the SNCC voting rights effort allows Orr to eventually make peace with himself and to record the beauty of what he sees around himself.

A good book of a spiritual journey. Well worth reading.
