In my book, “Removing the Mask: The Life of A Struggling Mother, I Allyn Mitchell invite you to travel with me, down my lonely road called life. I have always been a woman of faith even though I was a preacher's daughter, I never experienced the true meaning of God's love. I always felt like the black sheep of the family because of the absence of my mother's love. At a very young age, my mother gave me to my grandmother. After my grandmother's passing, my life was never the same. I always had a gift for fashion and a flair for beauty. I took that gift and made a life for myself and my children. With that life came a lot of jealousy and pain- people stereotyping me as being a bitch and a whore because of the way I looked and the way I carried myself. I was a classy lady and carried myself with the utmost respect, but because of my unique style, people formed an unapproachable opinion about me. Men used my kindness for weakness because of my kind heart, people lied about me and called me alot of hurtful names. My life was filled with many heartaches and pain. All that pain was followed by my cheating husbands, the murder of someone I loved so deeply, the imprisonment of my son, and the taking of my daughter. Through all the homeless moments in my life, I still kept the faith, that one day God would reward me for all these trials and tribulations, I had in my life. There was one big secret, I had in my life that only me and God knew about. Soon, the whole world will know. But I know through it all, I have to forgive those who played a part in my pain and suffering. To you all, I forgive you because you don't realize what you've done and are doing. The devil is using you as a vessel to bring pain and suffering to your sister in Christ. May God bless you all. Amen.

Tina Bears was overwhelmed with panic when her husband coldly told her, “I have gotten away with everything, everything but murder.” In this dramatic story of escape from a planned murder/suicide, Tina bravely recounts her life of hiding her shame under a mask of lies as a dutiful wife in a suburban Christian community. Tina learned to remove her mask, and shares her difficult journey through the shame of an unstable broken childhood home, the shame of a teen pregnancy, and the shame from a ten year abusive marriage. Through her faith in Jesus Christ, God has removed Tina’s shame and allowed her to overcome a life filled with brokenness and abuse. She has gone from feeling like a worthless, second-class, shamed woman in the eyes of God, to an understanding of the fact that she is valued and loved by her Heavenly Father. “Because of the love of God in Jesus Christ, my shame is gone, and now I can recognize that same shame in others who are hurting because of abuse. There is truly a great connection between the hurting and the healed. God has called me to reach out to those who are still hurting from abuse and to let them know that they are not alone in their pain.” —Tina Bears

Character traits may be used as defenses, or, 'coping mechanisms' that may be developed by individuals in an exaggerated fashion in order to conceal psychological conflicts. When these mechanisms break down, previously repressed trauma erupts into consciousness. One such trait is selflessness. Les Barbanell examines the transformation of selflessness into the Caretaker Personality Disorder and how it is not always better to give than receive, that being good can go bad, and that the 'disease to please' can even be fatal.

The Avoider. The Deflector. The Self-Blamer. The Aggressor. Recognize someone you know? Or yourself? We all know people who seem to get stuck in unhealthy patterns of relating to others. Sometimes we're puzzled by a loved one's evasiveness or surprised by a friend's defensive aggression. Occasionally we look in the mirror and see such troubling behaviors in ourselves. All of these are masks that we hide behind, and they prevent us from having authentic relationships with others. Counselor Russell Willingham identifies the relational masks that obstruct us from relating freely to other people and to God. Drawing on a wealth of practical experience and biblical insight, he diagnoses the destructive ways that we respond to others and shows how underlying false beliefs govern our thinking and actions. He also shows how each mask can be subverted from within and turned inside out to help us move toward healthy relationships. Each chapter includes tools and questions for discussion and application. Discover how to relate to others with the honesty and authenticity God intended--and find the relational freedom and satisfaction you ve been yearning for.
