Shattered explores how grief-avoidance strategies can keep us from fighting the battle to reclaim and reinvest our hearts after loss, and what faith-based strategies are necessary for healing.Too many people today are suffering from the catastrophic effects of loss. This year, three million people will die from diseases alone, leaving loved ones grieving, not to mention millions more affected by divorce, suicide, the rise of mental health disorders, war, terrorism, abuse, and economic failure. These statistics reflect the gravity of losses on today's culture.Shattered explores how unidentified or unresolved loss impacts every area of life, especially our relationship with God. The long-range impact of these losses is often obscured, buried beneath the conscious surface in an attempt to avoid pain. This book calls the reader to "e;notice"e; the losses of life, and fight the battle to reclaim and reinvest our hearts after loss through faith-based strategies.
