The picture is of my grandson, Jackson. Just this week, I got to see him. He is immune compromoised, so I haven’t seen him much this year. Our grandchildren have been important to our deconstruction story and our faith journey; because everytime we look at them, it sparks in us a desire to live more honestly and to be authentic and present for them.
I am still completely in love with both of these books because they are the beginning of my story. I can write snippets of that here, but they more completely describe transparently what has happened to me that I hope will help you.
The first book is about my deconstruction and my understanting that “maybe I’m wrong” and “God must be better than me.” It is called Apparent Faith.
The second book is about when I learned the valuve of presence and authenticity from the man with no name. The adventure that I started on, the one that fell apart, and the one that changed my life seems to be very helpful for others. It is called The Tea Shop.
My next book come out in January. It is called Being: My Journey Toward Authenticy and Presence. It will be a transformation work and will have it’s own companion guide. This book will help people address shadow issues and show them what it was like for me during an important time in my life. The companion guide will be called The Being Journey (30 days).
Check them out wherever books are sold. This is one of the places you can get the books. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=karl+forehand&ref=nb_sb_noss
