I'm not here, I'm invisible, pay no attention... move along....
May we all come to know Papa as we are known... and see ourselves as He sees us!

I am a NEW and old member. Was active years ago, but dropped out and rejoined. Have purchased dozens of copies of the book to give to friends, peers and social work clients. i especially love THE REST OF THE STORY ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND HOW HE WAS ABLE TO FINANCE THE FIRST PRINTING OF THE BOOK. I loved the characters in the movie but was disappointed that they omitted the last few pages about going back and retrieving Missy's bones, after the hospital stay leaving the viewer to contemplate was it real or not?

Welcome, Riverrebel! I'm glad you've found so much encouragement from the book and movie, although some things about the movie disappointed you. I hope you will hang around and get to know us on the other threads too.

I love the inter personnel relationship the Shack describes with Papa, I am still struggling with my own demons, with my first husband's suicide. I am trying to write about my childhood traumas and adult issues, but am having a difficult right now. Feeling depressed and hopeless, with the current world news and crazy political mess we are facing.
