When raised in a shame-based family one can easily find life to be fraught with emotional landmines. Relationships can be difficult because of shame-based thinking. Shame can lock you into cognitive distortions that cause difficulties in marriage, parenting, work relationships and friendships. Shame itself can make it way into your soul, warping how you see everything in life. Grace, on the other hand, frees one to be in relationships with others and to enjoy those relationships even when there is conflict!
In this podcast, Pastor Brad compares the difference between a shame-based family and a grace-based family.
