Book Review: The Rules of Engagement for Overcoming Your Past by Cindy Trimm
Cindy Trimm offers a book that is geared to helping you over come past issues with a specific strategy in The Rules of Engagement for Overcoming Your Past.
This little manual does offer the reader hope for a better life by applying biblically-based techniques and strategies for lasting change. I like the size of this hard copy because it is easy to carry along and read due to the small size. It is also a book that offered a lot of wisdom despite the small package.
Cindy Trimm offers advice on breaking free from: guilt, rejection, abuse and betrayal. Nine chapters offer steps that include re-wiring your mind, breaking free from past ties, healing your guilt and your shame (and she explains the difference), overcoming past abuse, forgiving and beginning again afresh. I found her steps easy to follow. Now, having said that, that doesn't mean that it was all easy to do. There are difficult choices the reader may make during the process. But there is a freeing feeling in completing the process. I think the book is good to keep around as you may want to refer back to it when you begin to feel old habits or feelings creeping back in. The book would be great to look back at to remind yourself of where you are going instead of where you have been.
I would encourage anyone to read this book that needs to change their thinking and begin healing. It also might be a great book to use with a counselor if your issues feel to big to handle on your own.
I received this book from the publisher at no charge. I was not required to write a positive review.
