Forming deep relationships with God and with others is the most important aspect of mortal life, and yet one of the most vexing problems many face during their time on this earth is the lack of love-the inability to receive and give love as the Savior did. In Filled with His Love, Russell T. Osguthorpe, former Sunday School General President, addresses the question of how we can increase our capacity to give and receive love so that we can have secure, healthy relationships with God and with others. Through tender anecdotes, analysis of scriptural symbols, and research-based studies, this guide will help you:
• Learn how parent-child relationships can positively or negatively affect relationships into adulthood. • Recognize that attachment to God is central to spiritual growth and see how your attachment to God affects all other relationships in your life. • Examine your own relationships and implement strategies for improving your attachment styles so that you can strengthen your relationship with God and with others.
Research has shown that the majority of adults suffer at least to some degree from a negative attachment style, which makes it difficult for them to form enduring, joyful relationships. No matter the state of your current attachments, this book will help you recognize, develop, and increase your capacity to love as God loves until His love literally fills you.
