Healing conversations touch our brokenness and suffering. They are real. When they happen we know it immediately, and we are grateful.
On the road to Emmaus, Jesus joined two hurting men on their path, walked with them, and asked questions. He revealed things to them about himself and themselvesboth through the Scriptures and through the way he walked and talked with them. By the end of the conversation, their hearts were on fire.
In Real Talk, Mark Good shares valuable tools he has used successfully for decades in counseling individuals and familiesskills that help us slow down, come alongside others, and communicate in meaningful ways.
