Book Is Based Upon Concept That Our Stories Begin Before We Take Our First Breath
ST. LOUIS, MO, UNITED STATES, June 15, 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, LPC, has been nominated for the Christian Indie Book Awards in the category of personal growth. The Christian Indie Book Awards honor the best Christian books of the year and are held annually by the Christian Independent Publishers Association. Nominated books are judged by a panel consisting of experts from leading Christian publishers. Award winners will be announced on May 1, 2022. Generations Deep has been widely received by both readers and critics, achieving Amazon Best Seller status upon its release.
In the powerfully-written Generations Deep, 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 other trauma-informed therapists, it will guide readers toward their own growth where it’s possible to banish shame and find freedom—for themselves and for future generations.
“I am extremely grateful and humbled to have Generations Deep nominated for the Christian Indie Book Awards,” said Gina Birkemeier, LPC. “The message this book conveys is one of faith and therapy working together to help heal. It is a message that readers have responded to and that this nomination recognizes.
“The message that ‘what isn’t repaired gets repeated’ is resonating with many people. 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 that, while trauma impacts us at a cellular level- so does healing. I believe Generations Deep’s message of hope and healing resonates with so many and is why readers are seeking the book and why it is has earned the recognition that this nomination conveys,” concluded Birkemeier.
Faith and therapy played important roles in Birkemeier’s personal healing. With nearly two decades of experience in counseling and ministry, she uses this knowledge to guide readers to do their own work and heal from the impact of inherited behaviors and beliefs. She shows that cycles can be broken, and readers can shed the chains of inherited dysfunction and trauma to live healthier lives and pass that healing on to future generations. Reading Generations Deep will leave the reader encouraged and empowered to break unhealthy cycles in their own lives.
