A journey of discovery toward healing, connected relationships, and a new freedom and joy in living.
When you experience emotional injury, fear, or shame, your first impulse is to hide the hurting parts of yourself from God, others, and even yourself. Often, you've learned these hiding patterns during childhood to protect yourself in a threatening environment. The problem is that when you hide your injuries and frailties, you isolate yourself from the very things you need in order to heal and mature--connection, intimacy, and love. What served as protection for a child becomes a prison to an adult.
In Hiding from Love, Dr. John Townsend helps you explore the hiding patterns you've developed and guides you toward the healing grace and truth of safe, connected relationships with God and others. You'll discover:
- The difference between "good" and "bad" hiding
- Why you hide the broken parts of your soul from the God who can heal them
- How to be free to make mistakes without fear of exposing your failures and imperfections
- How to obtain the joy and wholeness God intends you to have through healthy bonding with others
