Am I Suffering From a Generational Curse?

Episode 696 Show Notes 

From the Show

If you are exposed to sin in the family or a family member sins against you, whether through physical or sexual abuse—that can have devastating effects on a person. Family members’ sins do not excuse our own sins, but we do need to take account of them. We need to seek out the help that we need in order to heal. Our parents’ sins are not excuses for our own but they do reveal areas in our own lives where we are going to need extra help.

–Adriel Sanchez
