Breaking Cycles
Parenting Education

Have you wondered what is happening to society? Have you ever considered it has everything to do with the breakdown of the family? I certainly did. So, I went searching, and my journey took me back to my great grandmother. It is no wonder why God warns us about sin. It is like a canker disease that attacks not only one tree (family) but the entire orchard (society).
I wanted to stop this deadly cycle from affecting my children and their children to come. However, what I found was not always easy to hear. What I found was dark, cold and painful. Yet discovering and acknowledging family truths is the first step in gaining understanding, forgiveness and navigating out of the dysfunctional comfort zone.
Changing familiar, family behavior can leave you isolated and doubtful. Breaking free from sin is not easy, especially when all you’ve ever known is what has been passed down. Redefining yourself and staying strong can sometimes feel impossible. But the rewards are powerful and eternal.


The Open Door
By Deana Cerniglia

“I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”
John 10:9

A true story on how one person broke the generational cycles of fatherlessness, dysfunction and abuse.
I pray that as you read this book, you will notice how God was always working, even after my family closed the door to His guidance, love, patience and deliverance. The Open Door at the end of every chapter is God’s invitation to unlocking the door to wisdom and breaking cycles. When we accept this invitation, we gain the discernment between His doors and the doors of the crypt.
