If you've ever tried to help a troubled friend, a wayward youth, or a struggling family member, you know how frustrating it can be to see them "self-destruct." In this inspirational talk, Brother Jack R. Christianson offers valuable insights and provides powerful hope for those working with misguided souls. "Most people misbehave not because they are bad," says Brother Christianson, "but because they are wounded in some way. We need to look beyond the behavior to understand how they are hurting or why they are insecure. We've got to be more patient as we deal with wounded hearts." He suggests that we follow Jacob's teachings and try "the pleasing word of God, yea, the word which healeth the wounded soul" (Jacob 2:8). Using touching stories and insightful quotes and scriptures, Brother Christianson teaches us how we can help others in the healing process.
