A dysfunctional family limits a child's ability to express feelings, to be nurtured, and even to simply talk about major problems. It affects our ability to have quality relationships later in life. When we come from a dysfunctional family, we often grow up compensating by giving ourselves over to codependency, alcoholism, addiction, eating disorders, compulsive behaviors, or by becoming hyper-religious. We allow shame and low self-esteem to erode the quality of our life. By focussing on Jesus Christ, we can heal completely, leave the dysfunction behind, and start living the life we were called to by our Creator the Most High God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Join us this Tuesday for a live segment of a show that you really don't want to miss.
Are you operating in a seemingly dysfunctional family? If you think so, you just may want to check out this show starting Tuesday 7pm EST at drjessewalker.com or listen live at (347) 857-1769.
You love your spouse-to-be. But their family is something else. Not only are the parents dysfunctional, drug addicts and alcoholics, with violent bursts of temper; the siblings are a mess, in and out of prison for crimes of theft and violence, absent from home so often their children are now wards of the State, raised by foster parents or parceled out to distant relatives. The family is a mess, but should you judge the one you love by the family they come from? Is that being "elitist"? Or is that excercising proper caution? Should you try to interact with your future in-laws or should you avoid them? How can you be sure that your future spouse has not been irreparablyemotionally damaged by their dysfunctional family?

Think your family is dysfunctional? Best selling author Mary Murphy’s multi-blended birth family would make your family look like the Cleavers. Guaranteed. Mary’s parents were each married numerous times and Mary has twenty-one step, half, and adopted brothers and sisters. To make matters worse, she suffered other misfortunes. At four months of age she had major surgery for cancer of the liver, and when she was four years old she endured the tragic death of her nine-year-old sister.
Today Mary is a pastor’s wife living in Tulsa, Oklahoma and her Bible study Joseph, Beyond the Coat of Many Colors has become the number one best seller in Bible studies on Amazon.com. Does it surprise you that she’d write a great book about one of the most dysfunctional families in the Bible?
Listen to our show today. You will enjoy hearing her story and the way she grew in the midst of trouble.
So, here we have it: Those of us, who have "made it," have the unwelcomed responsibility of taking care of our dysfunctional family members. The assumptionn is that we don't have responsibilities also. Let's talk about it. How many of you feel resentment? "We made it, why can't they?" you may say to yourself. Yet, the family pressure remains. What do you do? Join Michael and Amirah as we explore this topic...that few others want to talk about. Tune in this Monday!!
Therapist Jef Gazley willl be our special guest speaker on this rebroadcast show. His statement on Co-Dependency is this: The definition of co-dependence is the tendency to desperately attempt to take care of other people to such an extent that the needs of the caretaker are ignored. Codependency was first identified by working with alcoholic families in the early 1980’s while noticing how the mates of chemically dependent people parented their partners. Codependency was first thought to occur only as a reaction to someone in the family being addicted. It is now known that co-dependence also results from growing up in a dysfunctional family of any type. These families often emotionally abandon their children and shame them. These children react by trying to become perfect, control everything, and “fix” their parents and later their spouse and children in the hope that they will be loved and gain approval.
