No matter your age, the approval of your parents affects how you view yourself and your ability to pass that approval on to your children, spouse, and friends. Many of us – perhaps unknowingly – spend a lifetime striving for this acceptance. In this best-selling classic, John Trent and Gary Smalley present a fresh, applicable perspective of the life-changing gift the Bible calls “the blessing.”
The unconditional love and approval that come with the blessing is vital to our self-esteem and emotional well-being. The authors detail the five elements of the blessing:
1. Meaningful touch
2. A spoken message
3. Attaching high value
4. Picturing a special feature
5. An active commitment
With years of counseling experience, Drs. Trent and Smalley have successfully used the concepts outlined in this book to heal hundreds of broken hearts and families. The Blessing powerfully communicates biblical truths that no family should be without. It offers solid, practical advice for individuals, counselors, and pastors – and provides hope and healing for those men and women who may have missed receiving their parents’ blessing.
