The Bridge To Hope & Healing®: 9 Principles To Guide You in a Moment of Crisis
Inspired by Becky’s story, My Husband Is Gay—Now What?, this is about two people who threw out the divorce rulebook, a wife who supported her husband through his coming-out process, parents who stayed focused on their daughter, and a family who built a bridge to hope and healing. The book can be used to navigate a life circumstance, whether you are the person in a moment of crisis or supporting loved ones or clients through their disappointment. Readers can use the Principles fluidly and flexibly to build and guide them over their bridge, and employ Tips & Techniques, Bridge Reflections, and Journal Prompts to assist along their growth journey.
