Like restoring a vintage painting to its original splendor, God seeks to restore his father position with us, but this process can be hindered when we see him through the distorted image of our earthly fathers. Since most people come from less than perfect homes, it is often difficult to see God the way he wants us to see him: as a loving father. Many of us are living out the legacy of father wounds inflicted during our childhood. Healing the Father Wound is the perfect tool for anyone wanting to learn how to move forward toward emotional and spiritual maturity, regardless of their past.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Beneath the thin veneer of our society's appearance of 'having it together' lurks an enormous father wound. I have counseled individuals struggling with sexual traumas in their lives for over twenty years, and in approximately 80 percent of the cases, the pain they are medicating with their sexual activity is a haunting father wound. Dr. Kathy Rodriguez's material is simply outstanding in helping hurting individuals finally come to grips with the pain of their past. I have found few other sources that are as practical, understandable, and profoundly healing."

—Ted Roberts, pastor, counselor, author, and President of Pure Desire Ministries International

"A balanced blend of scriptural truth, sound theology, and therapeutic insight couched in real-life stories. Those who long for healing from father wounds and those who desire to help them heal will find indispensable tools in this book."

—Pam Vredevelt, LPC, author of The Power of Letting Go and The Wounded Woman: Hope and Healing for Those Who Hurt
