The inspiration to write The House and the Hedge came from an amazing realization of God's infinite love at the age of fifty-five, after living a lifetime filled with doubt, a poor self-image, and anxiety. After experiencing this epiphany and sharing the experience with others, there was a realization that a significant number of people yearn for acceptance and experience significant self-doubt, which inhibits the joy of living a purpose-filled life.
This book takes its readers on a journey to first reflect on the true miracle that God created them to be and that He loves them regardless of their histories or current circumstances. It then brings into focus the infinite love, power, superior intelligence, and creativity of God.
Throughout the book, there are self-help sections and techniques that enable the reader to identify those "Hedge" events and people in their lives, which contribute to their barriers to a good self-image and happiness. True and complete forgiveness is a gift that God has given us, and there is a chapter focusing on teaching us to forgive and the amazing release forgiveness gives us to move forward in joy, unencumbered by history.
