Sharon D. Ashhurst Shares Touching Story of a Heart to Heart Conversation with her Mom that Highlights Lessons on Love, Family and Forgiveness.
DALLAS, TEXAS-- Many children look to their parents as loving-protectors, life-savers and hero's. And when they become adults, they realize exactly who their parents really are; they are human, they make mistakes, they experience hurt and failure, and they do their best with what they have. Unfortunately, some experiences leave us with scars, and in order to receive healing, a closer look at them may be required. Having honest conversation about our scars can be extremely beneficial. It isn't easy to discuss our past hurts, but these conversations invites forgiveness, and hope for reconciliation.
In The 67th Book: A No-holds Barred Conversation Between Mom and Me (NyreePress, $24.99), Sharon D. Ashhurst paints a picture of what a real conversation between a mother and her adult daughter may look like. Sharon documented true events that took place during her childhood until adult hood, and discussed them in depth with her mother.
"The whole world is full of hurting people," says Sharon in her introduction. "A person who never heals, goes from one stage of life to another carrying the same hurt that usually stems from childhood issues. Adults with childhood issues have all types of dysfunctions, which then brings children into a dysfunctional environment, which leads to a generational cycle. " Sharon continued, "Although, you may not have a relationship with your mother or daughter/son, this book will allow you to see things from another perspective. You will discover that your mother may have felt the same way you did at one time or another, and that your daughter/son may have many of your characteristics; this is why there is so much turbulence. The bottom line is, we all become adults with childhood issues that need to heal. "
"Sharon's book is a very important book. With extreme bravery, she demonstrates the beauty of having genuine 'hard talks' that get to the root of issues that she experienced in her childhood. Each letter is deeply moving. You'll be inspired to sit and have a little talk with your loved ones too," says Kennisha Thornton, NyreePress CEO.
Sharon Daphne Ashhurst has the ability to make you laugh and cry, bring you to your feet or knock you to your knees, all with the power of words. She is just an ordinary girl that God used to do an extraordinary thing. From private schools and Carnegie Hall, to drugs and sexual promiscuity, she was considered a lost soul; but, what Sharon found out was that everything she had gone through was designed to help others get through.
Sharon and her mother had a rocky relationship, but the love she had for her mother gave God something to use to turn the situation around. It’s called, “trading places.” In this book, Sharon shares the conversations she and her mother had.
The 67th Book will make you laugh, cry, forgive, and help you to understand how purpose works. You don’t need what you think you need, or who you think you need, in order to fulfill your purpose. God never intended for you to preach a sermon. He wanted you to be a testimony. It’s time to have a real conversation.
