Loving from a Pure Heart is a Christ-centered curriculum for those who struggle with the pain of dysfunctional relationships. It explores the faces of dysfunctional relationships, covering topics like distorted senses of reality, distorted senses of responsibility, control issues, chronic loneliness, and woundedness. It looks at roots of dysfunction, exploring topics like love hunger, addictions, abuse, legalism, and shame bound families. It provides tools for overcoming dysfunction by understanding the call of God to love as He loves and heart issues that hinder that. It talks about the art of building mutual relationships, loving in difficult circumstances, and understanding the love of God and living in light of that love. If you desire healthier, more meaningful relationships this book would be beneficial and can be used in private study, in counseling settings, or support group settings. Wendy J.
