Women no longer have to live a lifetime influenced and dictated by past hurts caused by growing up with an undesirable or deadbeat dad. They can choose to uproot past pain and, in its place, plant seeds of healing and peace. They can allow God to “re-Father” them, heal painful memories, and love them purely and unconditionally for who they are—His precious daughters. Learning to Trust Your Heavenly Father (Even If You Can’t/Couldn’t Trust Your Human Father) will bring understanding, hope, and spiritual refreshment to women who have/had distant, absence, abusive, and/or undesirable dads. Author Denise George includes a personal Bible study at the end of each chapter.
