Coming from a broken home is difficult, but it is not insurmountable. But if all we have are the world’s answers to the hurt we experience, then we are in big trouble. It doesn’t take long to figure out that the world’s answers do not work! There is not enough beer, sex, drugs, perfection, academia, counseling-in short, not enough of anything-to dull the pain, much less heal it. But there is an answer. God provides a firm foundation for healing our broken hearts.
