"I wish we could put this book into the hands of everyone who works with youth.  Don Schmierer has given us a compassionate, educational, and very hopeful book on a subject that is troubling millions of young people today."
Jim Burns, Ph.D.
President, National Institute of Youth Ministry

What's a Father to Do?  Author, counselor and father of two Don Schmierer speaks man-to-man with dads about the problems that can arise with growing kids - problems like addictions, eating disorders, promiscuity and same-sex attractions.  And he doesn't mince words.  

So here's the bottom line.  As fathers:

  • Have we established a pattern of open communication with our children?

  • Have we reached out to our children, being receptive to their felt needs?

  • Have we given our children dignity?

  • Have we set up loving boundaries, so our children have a clear sense of right and wrong?

  • Who inflicted on you the deepest wound or wounds you've ever experienced?

  • Do you still feel the pain of that wound (those wounds) today?

  • Do you ever ask yourself why God let such a thing happen to you? Do you feel anger toward Him?

  • Do you feel anger toward others? Do you have a need to control, a desire for vengeance, or a habit of intimidating others to compensate for your terrifying feelings of powerlessness?

If any of these questions apply to you, you'll find help in Healing Wounds of the Past. As author Don Schmierer writes in the introduction, "Because I want to help you understand and experience healing and inner peace, I will get to the point; my style is going to be straight forward - as we say in the West, 'no punches pulled.' My prayer for you, when you've finished reading, is that you will truly experience the peace of God that surpasses all understanding."

"The message of Healing Wounds of the Past really caught my attention. The stories are moving and the interpretations and applications of the Bible are powerful. I can anticipate workshops being held where time is set aside for people to be ministered to in small groups. I can already envision hundreds of people being emotional healed and restored through reading the book. "
