A Reflection of My Father: Accepting the Past, Embracing Me & Growing
Forward discusses how when we’re
experiencing feelings of hurt, betrayal, and attack, we desire reprieve and
demand vindication, and swiftly. Just as quickly as our emotions take us
through whirlwinds for wrongs, we can quickly dive into blissful escape to
imageries of happiness, both leading to a discontented life.
The intention of this book is to
challenge feelings behind these emotions, and perspectives that induce those
emotions. Readers observing their past can eliminate stumbling blocks and toxic
energy and shift their outlook to a future of freedom.
“A Reflection of My Father
unveils the truth of a Father’s position in his daughter’s life and her
inheritance as a beloved daughter. It encourages her to live unhindered by the
shadows of her past, and reassures her strength, no matter what space she
occupies, so she can walk in confidence of the light that shines from, in, and
through a daughter,” said Bernard.
