"Resurrection Hope, by Freda
Emmons will challenge your ideas
about what Heaven will be like;
the people, the events, the sights,
and the revelations. It held my
interest start to finish. It is well
written and easy to understand
but offers some interesting twists
even for someone well-acquainted
with the Biblical descriptions of
eternity. I would highly
recommend this book.

"As a Christian and a psychotherapist, I am convinced that the power of faith and grief work along with honest self-reckoning can transform people's lives. This book is a treasure of generous gifts! It reinforces love and hope in the midst of recovery! It gently helps the reader make a concerted effort to change both their distorted beliefs and behaviors that frequently result from traumatic experiences. It is a very unique yet simple guide from traditional insight-oriented psychotherapy. But in our times, most people need much more than mere insight into their difficulties. Most often, they need to grow and strengthen their character in order to transform the way they view themselves, and others, following the profound rupture of trust which follows trauma. Without question, this can be a daunting and difficult mission in the absence of a gentle faith which comforts and consoles.
Emmons uses her extensive history as a survivor of abuse to provide a daily journaling experience for those who seek to travel a path to healing. Her exercises guide us with daily reflections, scriptures, and activities into a sincere and persistent effort to embody the virtues of thanksgiving, using the values of one's faith as a key reinforcement in the healing process. After reviewing dozens of self help books, I found this little gem to be the perfect compliment for our aftercare program following The Grief to Grace Retreats. We have offered it as a gift to all our participants to help them continue the work they began with us. "
