When you think of a family tree, you think of strong branches that represent generations of your family reaching to the sky.
But what do you do when those branches are broken by the storms of life? How do you become a good husband or wife, or a good father or mother, when your past has been marked by abandonment, divorce, or the death of a loved one?
My family didn’t have a family tree. We had a “family bush.” My mother died when I was nine years old.
