In Pictures Your Heart Remembers, family expert Dr. John Trent shows how "pictures" of the good and bad things in our lives not only find their way into our hearts but also affect how we view ourselves, how we treat others, and even how we relate to God. These pictures, writes Trent, "affect the way we think, the way we feel, and the way we perceive the world."
use the "pictures" of your life to deepen your love for God and others.
In this most personal book, Trent draws on pictures from his own painful past to show how acts of kindness or cruelty-a parent’s smile or a teacher’s ridicule-are all wrapped up in memories that carry the power to bless or curse us. Drawing on pictures full of promise in God’s Word, Trent shows that we have a choice in how we react to the negative events we’ve experienced in the past. We also have a choice every day to leave positive pictures in the lives of those we meet…just as Jesus did.
Over a million homes have been deeply impacted by Dr. Trent’s powerful message of the blessing. This book, previously released as Choosing to Live the Blessing, speaks to the people who may not have seen consistent love, acceptance, or warmth in their past and gives them hope and help in reframing those negative events into lifelong positives.
Filled with genuine warmth and vulnerability, Pictures Your Heart Remembers will touch readers’ hearts and challenge them to leave pictures of blessing today.
