  • How your early connection with your mother may have impacted your sense of self and your other important relationships—and what you can do to break the cycle

Alsdorf, founder of Design4Living Ministries, teams up with marriage and family therapist Edwards Kay in this compassionate exploration of the relationships between mothers and daughters. Looking at both their own lives and the anonymous case studies of others, the authors interweave self-assessments, personal stories, and prayers to encourage readers to identify and reflect on past traumas that might still require healing. Close attention is paid to early childhood attachment styles and their potential effects on a woman’s behaviors, choices, and feelings later in life. The authors also encourage readers to look beyond early negative experiences and to place them in a context of larger meaning, and provide a six-step approach to changing false beliefs and unhealthy patterns: pray, identify core lies, explore their impact, apply God’s truth, acknowledge the good, and live out of one’s spirit-led self. With gentleness and acuity, Alsdorf and Edwards Kay provide insight to Christian women looking to turn past tribulations and pain into redemption and peace.
