Turning the Curse Into a Blessing: A Testimony of God's Healing Power
by Myrna Thatcher, LCMFT and Annette Smith
Author Myrna Thatcher, LCMFT, grew up in a small, Kansas suburb in a performance-driven family. As a child she was the one who helped people so becoming a therapist was a natural progression. Married at the age of 17, five years later with two small children and a husband, Myrna began college courses to complete her dream of being a therapist. Sixteen years later with a 4.0 grade average and her Master of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy, Myrna began a private practice that included clients who suffered from Dissociative Identify Disorders. That is where Annette and Myrnas story begins.
Author Annette Smith lived in a Kansas metropolitan area most of her life. Annette buried herself in arts and crafts as an escape from the horrors of life that she held deep within her mind, yet deep within her heart she held onto God, who kept her sane through the dark, mystical trials of childhood. She grew up in a large family who, you would think, would be very close and protective of each other. On the contrary, there was no protection from the evil and abuse that weaved its way in and through the family system. Therefore as Annette grew she became the woman, the child and the others. Her story explains the long journey of how a woman gained healing from living as a child and as other people.(2012, paperback, 102 pages)
