Finding Your Wings

A Christian Guide to Healing from Romantic Rejection & Heartbreak

So many of us have to deal with the pain of romantic rejection and heartbreak in our lives—yet there is so little specific advice available about how a Christian should handle it. The general attitude seems to be: “Don’t worry, you’ll get over it!” The question is, how?

How do we find our way through the pain into a place of healing, with our integrity intact and our relationship with God growing stronger?

With a Biblical outlook and practical advice, the author draws on over 30 years of personal experience to help you walk with Jesus through every stage of your healing, from the first desperate pain, through the confusion and distress, into a time of 'convalescence' - and finally, to complete wholeness and restoration.

In Finding Your Wings, R.M. Fanshaw shows
how she learned to receive and experience
the fullness of the healing Jesus brings
to the brokenhearted—

and how you can do the same!

'In Finding Your Wings, R.M. Fanshaw… heads straight back to the Bible, offering godly, wise and sensitive insights into some of the deepest emotions any human can endure, which remain solidly focused on biblical truth…'

'...[G]enuine, reflective, positive and scriptural support and advice for [those] who are going through... relationship journeys that involve pain and heartbreak.'

'Right at the beginning I am cheering that she’s written this book! The conversational style put me immediately at ease.'

~ Preliminary Judge’s Feedback,

'This book was excellently written. It was clearly and concisely phrased, and I was delighted to see how strongly [the author urges] giving oneself TIME to recover. Time to be not okay while still not wallowing in it or allowing it to run your life. Also, as someone who has been an Eleanor all of her life... I personally really appreciated the Sense and Sensibility comparison.

'And [the] poem at the end was beautiful.'
