Restoring Your Heart Workbook: Conquering Shame For Women
The RYH Conquering Shame workbook is Book 3 in a series of emotional and relational healing workbooks created by Restoring Your Heart (RYH), a healing ministry of Worldwide Discipleship Association. It is recommended that people complete the RYH Processing Pain and RYH Understanding Emotions workbooks prior to experiencing this workbook.
Conquering Shame is a workbook that helps people take an in-depth look at what shame is, the effects of shame in their life, and how to deal with their shame and overcome it.
What is shame? It is the deep belief and painful feeling that a person is flawed, defective, and worth less than others. Shame causes us to see ourselves as weak, inadequate, insignificant, unlovable, or not particularly talented. It can also cause us to hide our imagined defectiveness and try to be who we think people want us to be, not who we really are. Shame can cause us to have difficulty facing our sins and confessing them to God and to those we have offended. By withholding part of ourselves from God and other people, we won’t grow spiritually or be able to establish and maintain close relationships with people.
This workbook is designed for use by a small group that is led by a trained facilitator.
Conquering Shame is a 16-week group experience that includes a unique “connecting with God” exercise. Group members will work together on dealing with their shame in the context of a safe community. The suggested method is for the group to cover one lesson per week. During the week before each meeting, group members will read the lesson and complete the answers to the questions at their own individual pace. At the group meetings, there will be opportunities to share answers to many of the questions and, as the group progresses, to bond with the other group members and bring God into their healing process.
