You hurt yourself to feel better, but the relief never lasts. If you or someone you love feels trapped in a cycle of intentional self-injury, there is hope in the gospel that is better than the quick fix of self-injury.
Exposing the familiar motivations like fear and anger that drive self-injury, Edward T. Welch reveals what the behavior says about us and about God in Hurts So Good: Exposing the Lies of Self-Injury. He presents the Psalms as a God-honoring way to give expression to our deepest pain. With nine action steps, this minibook will help set strugglers on the path to hope and healing in Christ.
