Our guest today, a clinical psychologist and veteran United States Air Force officer and author, joins us to discuss the topic of healing from psychological and spiritual wounds and trauma. In the wake of the recent '20 Years of War' study on the surging suicide rate among the military population, released by Brown University and reported on by most major outlets, our conversation today is both timely and relevant.
On this hour of In The Market, we will tackle the spiritual battles which face every suicide survivor: guilt, shame, rejection, blame, stigma and the question, “Why God? Why?”. Our guest understands completely, as it took years for her to start moving forward with baby-steps of love, prayer, forgiveness, obedience and service. But there is victory to celebrate. Learn the way to joy, real joy in a marriage that stays intact and a family that’s close at hand. Overcoming a suicide loss is possible. Join us to learn how.
