The Shame Game - Leaving Shame...
Janice Sterling Gaunt
A licensed counselor shows how to stop saying you’re not good enough, let go of shame, and grab life by the horns.
As you look at a newborn child, you become overwhelmed by his preciousness. Your heart is filled with love. Without doubt, you recognize that the child’s value was established at birth. The child’s value exists simply because he exists. You know with absolute certainty that this child—every child—can never be of lesser value. This child’s value simply is. This child is you.
Abundant living is everyone’s birthright. Toxic shame can impede your ability to live abundantly, and The Shame Game offers you the tools to claim your inheritance. Although there have been books that address shame, healing shame, and abundant living, The Shame Game brings the three issues together in a more informative, readable, and concise manner than has ever been done. Janice gently guides you on a journey of self-awareness and healing, empowering you to rediscover your birth-created value. The Shame Game can set you free from the past, teach you to embrace the present, and open the door to an abundant future.
