Sometimes holidays bring up old hurts and issues that derail our personal growth. Mark Beecham, author of No Xcuses! joins Family Connections with practical and realistic ways to move out of excuses and into personal accountabiliy. Mark explains how trauma and wounds can impact one’s life for years; however, he also discusses the need to move beyond old hurts and anger and eventually heal. Using his own life story of sexual abuse and lifelong battles with weight issues, Mark illustrates his approach to creating a life filled with joy and happiness, and moving forward even when bad things happened. This show is especially helpful for those struggling during the holidays, or simply wanting a fresh perspective on how to move beyond issues that continue to plague their lives–moving from victim to victor!
