It gives no quick fixes, no easy promises, has no magic wand hidden inside. It does have realistic questions and answers for those with hurting hearts, and does offer thoughts and options that will open doors - and perhaps other hearts - to healing, as well.To repair something as tender, as complex as a human heart requires time and deep insight. Each heart is different, truly unique in the highest sense of the word. Each broken heart must be examined carefully and thoroughly, diagnosed accurately, before repairs can be attempted.This workbook will guide the brokenhearted through this process. I believe those who follow this process will find comfort for their minds and healing for their hearts. This is not a collection of quips and one-line miracle cures, but a sincere study of the heart itself. It is not easy- do not think it is. To repair something we must understand that something. If you complete this study you will know more about your heart, and yourself and your relationship, than you can now imagine.The Manual was written primarily for those whose hearts have been broken in matters of intimate relationships: spouses, those engaged to be married, those involved relationships that seem destined to lead to marriage. Yet, others will find this useful. Most of what is found here will apply to other situations, other harsh disappointments in life, as well.Finally, some may wish to use this workbook as preventative maintenance in relationships. Working through these pages may well bring to light unseen but developing situations that need to be dealt with before they lead to heartbreak.The Manual was drawn from my 25+ years of teaching in seven Single Adults Bible study classes and three Married Couples classes, in five different churches, as well as my own season of hearbreak. In my years working with, and listening to, people with broken hearts, I have learned much about how hearts are broken, and how they can be made whole and strong and happy again.This workbook is a guide to understanding and healing broken hearts, based on timeless Biblical truth.Most graphics were removed from this eBook edition to avoid formatting problems.
