I experienced abuse and neglect in my childhood. Once I found the Gospel, I thought I could just shut the door on my past and begin a new life learning about a loving God and a plan of happiness. Unfortunately, the trauma of my past really damaged my self-worth and I have difficulty feeling that God loves or cares about me. What do I do?
I have heard about children cutting off communication with their parents, but I never imagined it would happen to us. Then, poof, it did.

I divorced a few years ago and then remarried about a year ago. During the time I was getting remarried, my ex-husband, who is also the father of my children, committed suicide.

As it stands, he has some strong tendencies toward the same mentalities of his dad. How do we establish the home we want to have with his desiring something so different?
