When Your Past Is Hurting Your Present Oct 21, 2005
I have been searching for a Christian author that has written a book on "Forgiveness" that is balanced and non-judgmental...this book is the best I have ever come across. I truly believe the author was moved along in the Holy Spirit as she wrote much or all of this book. It comes to grips with childhood abuse, other abuse, neglect, events others may have caused harm to us and those we have caused to ourselves. The book is very Scriptural sound and can help anyone with the problem of overcoming forgiveness. It teaches "forgiveness" whether it is in the past and is now causing us problems or it is something in our adult years we need to learn how to forgive and move on or it is learning how to forgive of ourselves! If you are truly searching for a Biblical Foundational book on "Forgiveness", this is it!
Never realized how much you were still hurting...now you can get over it for good. Sep 22, 2005
AMAZING BOOK!!!!! We know that we are suppose to "forgive, forget and move on" but sometimes this is much easier said than done. We don't realize how much hurt we still hold onto and how much it is hurting us in many ways of our lives. Sue helps bring to the forefront what we have tried to unsuccessfully bury and helps us lay it to rest once and for all, deepening our faith and helping us realize that our life can be GREAT no matter what has happened in the past. Until we forgive and forget we cannot move on - Sue walks us through how to apply this to our personal lives. This book is a must read even if you think you have "moved on". Sue's passion and zeal for a better life is contagious.
"Releasing the Past -- So Easy When You Know How"! Sep 19, 2005
"W.O.W." -- "Write on Woman"! This certainly is a book in due season. Who doesn't have a past that affects them, in the present, to some degree? Sue Augustine is endearingly transparent, sharing her own past struggles as she evolves into the beautiful, strong & vibrant woman she is today. She gently draws you into own personal realm and envelopes you with caring, sharing and encouragement. It feels like Sue is right there beside you becoming your own personal strategist and helping you to implement the 21 Steps. She guides you through the pages, helping you to face past issues and, where necessary, gives permission to simply "let go". -- a very freeing and uplifting journey. This book is all-encompassing and not easily put down once started. I'll certainly recommend it hightly to others as a "must-read" and look forward to future releases with great anticipation.
'Betcha' won't just read it once! Aug 16, 2005
Whether you are trying to overcome relatively small hurts from yesterday or to hurdle major stumbling blocks from decades past, you've found the right book. This is not just another self-help resource; it is a companion. Sue Augustine seems to jump out of the pages and grab you by the hand like a friend who is eager to share something very exciting. Not only does she help point you in the direction of the truths that will set you free, but Sue also walks along with you as she shares her own personal experiences and struggles. Although taking an honest look at ourselves can sometimes reveal things that are tough to swallow, Sue's warmth, humor, and sincere desire to help others flow through to provide that "spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down". It is very easy to see why she is a popular motivational speaker because her enthusiasm is infectious - even in print!
