Book Based Upon Concept That Our Stories Begin Before We Take Our First Breath
ST. LOUIS, MO, UNITED STATES , March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Generations Deep: Unmasking Inherited Dysfunction and Trauma to Rewrite Our Stories Through Faith and Therapy (ISBN 978-1-17329545-2-6, Out Loud Publishing, 2021) by Gina Birkemeier has been released for worldwide distribution. In this powerfully-written book, Birkemeier shares her own family’s personal story through four generations, showing how destructive behaviors of one generation are repeated by following generations and that unless we take time and effort to repair the past, this dysfunctional cycle will continue. Offering questions and theories to consider, including a questionnaire created with the help of sixty therapists, Generations Deep will guide readers toward their own growth where it’s possible to banish shame and find freedom—for themselves and for future generations. The book has a faith component also, with Birkemeier drawing not only from her career as a licensed therapist but also her ministry work in writing it. The paperback edition retails for $16.95 and the Kindle version is $12.99. The book is ideal for anyone interested in self-help and self-improvement, and ranked No. 1 on Amazon’s New Releases Personal Growth and No. 11 on the Self Help category the day after it was released.
“This book is about connecting dots. About showing how patterns, beliefs, behaviors, ideas, identity and styles of relating are passed down. It’s about creating awareness and understanding. It’s about learning how trauma impacts us at a cellular level- but so does healing,” said Birkemeier.
“ Generations Deep helps people recognize how everyone’s story begins long before their first breath,” continued Birkemeier. “Readers will learn how and why it is vital to learn what their vulnerabilities are so they can minimize the risk of repeating them. Generations Deep allows readers to break the bonds with inherited dysfunction and trauma, and to rewrite a healthy narrative for themselves and those that come after them.”
Faith and therapy played important roles in Birkemeier’s personal healing. Today with nearly two decades of experience in counseling and ministry, she uses this knowledge to guide readers on how to do their own work and heal from inherited behaviors. She shows that cycles can be broken, and readers can shed the chains of inherited behaviors that are destructive. From there, they can live healthier lives and pass that life on to future generations. Reading Generations Deep will leave the reader encouraged and empowered to break unhealthy cycles in their own lives..
