My Review

Dunnuck gives readers a great deal of useful information and encouragement in the context of telling her own story. I liked the idea of first helping readers to identify the roots behind emotional struggles. She provides practical ways to diminish and eventually eliminate the roots through exercises like journaling and praying. She also has a good suggestion for preventing the roots of negative thinking from being influential again.

Dealing with thoughts is a major aspect of the healing process. I appreciate Dunnuck including truth she learned from science, the Bible, and her own experiences. She shows how the way we think is a habit and habits can be changed. She provides questions, affirmations, Scriptures and prayers to help in the thought transformation process.

It took Dunnuck decades to learn the truth she shares in her book. The process of healing will definitely take time and work. This helpful book provides a good framework for getting on the path toward emotional healing.

Food for thought: “God is more interested in healing the emotional pain and ungodly thinking that can lead to sickness than just healing our surface problems.” (Loc 259/4363)

My rating: 4/5 stars.

More from Luann

SOUL MEND was written to break people out of their emotional chains! I know first hand what such things as anxiety, strife, guilt, and unforgiveness feel like. I know first hand how devastating these emotions can be on the physical body. After walking through some of these issues and recovering from a debilitating diagnosis I decided it was time to go back to school, get my counseling degree, and help other people!  In SOUL MEND I cover the three sources of negative thinking and how they impact our emotional and physical health. There are chapters on; a broken heart, stress, guilt, self-reproach, anxiety, and anger/bitterness.  Each chapter contains study questions to help the reader identity and heal from toxic emotions. The book ends on a uplifting and encouraging note on how God created you to walk in His destiny and His goodness. There is always a purpose in your pain and the Bible is clear that what the enemy meant for evil God promises to turn around for God when we seek Him (Genesis 50:20, Romans 8:28). I am excited to go on this journey with you and help you discover the healing and destiny that awaits you.
