Vendor: Thomas Nelson
Number of Pages: 256
New York Times bestselling author, neurosurgical ICU trauma nurse, and vice president of Amen Clinics Tana Amen shares how overcoming her traumatic past made her a passionate champion for others in need of healing and hope.
A terrifying childhood of abandonment and abuse, battles with cancer and depression, and a never-ending fight to be valued for more than her outward appearance conspired to rob Tana Amen of a voice--and the healthy future she deserved. Then, as a single working-mother secretly suffering from an eating disorder, she met Dr. Daniel Amen, the world-renowned psychiatrist and groundbreaking researcher using brain-scan imagery to transform clinical practice. Through their relationship she was able to release her need for self-protection, find healing, and experience transformation and wholeness.
Written in a refreshingly direct style, this powerful book is an eye-opening account of one woman's courage to face her past and embrace truth in order to offer hope and healing to others struggling with traumatic experiences. Integrating cutting-edge psychology, proven wellness techniques from the Amen Clinics, and intimate anecdotes from Tana Amen's life, this engrossing memoir is an inspirational look at what's possible for anyone who desires healing. Tana Amen's journey, which is both tragic and, at times, funny, offers guideposts to readers who are on their own healing journey.
