There are patterns in the emotional pain that develops for people due to how life unfolds.  Because of that, I am always on the lookout for reading that might help in someone's healing journey. 


If you are interested in reading more on forgiveness, loss, and shame, I recommend the following: 

On My Bookshelf:

Not "Just Friends": Rebuilding Trust and Recovering Your Sanity After Infidelity, Shirley P. Glass, Ph.D. - a great read for anyone affected by infidelity.  


Just One Thing, Rick Hanson, Ph.D. - Neuroscientist, Dr. Rick Hanson, has compiled 52 exercises for helping us remain mindful and gain peace in our lives.


Hold Me Tight, Seven Conversations for a LifeTime of Love, Dr. Sue Johnson - Couples in all stages of their relationship will benefit from reading this book on how to create meaningful attachments.


Forgive and Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don't Deserve, Lewis B. Smedes - Learning how to remove the hardness of resentment from our hearts is the most powerful step toward healthy living!


I Thought It Was Just Me, Women Reclaiming Power and Courage in a Culture of Shame, Brene Brown - Shame is the most difficult human experience we encounter.  This book may help you begin healing and free yourself from the burden of shame.


Shame: The Power of Caring, by Gershen Kaufman - One of the most in-depth explanations of how shame is created.  Forever grateful to a graduate school professor for making it required reading!


Where Is God When It Hurts? A Comforting, Healing Guide for Coping with Hard Times, Philip Yancey - This book does a beautiful job of helping us understand the answer to this common question.


The Road Less Travelled, M. Scott Peck - Another classic from my graduate school days.  An in-depth and profound look at this journey of being human.
