Robin Theis writes of rejection, suicide and strength of faith

PAULDING – Robin Theis is a veteran on the topic of rejection. She spent several years of her childhood in a children's home. She married at a young age and raised her children to love life and to appreciate the simplest of things. She found that the rejection she had experienced caused many problems in her early years of child rearing and in her marriage. Losing her son to suicide set her on a search for answers, and what she found was the rejection in his marriage led him to take his life.

Surrendered Identity challenges you to look at rejection through new eyes. The amount of people who have been rejected is staggering and the result is painful. Rejection leaves damage inside a person and manifests through anger, rebelliousness, relationship problems, depression, thoughts of suicide, wondering if the people in your circle reject or accept you, rejecting people before they reject you, self-pity, the inability to take constructive criticism or correction very well, the need to be loved, blaming God, insecurity, self-rejection, self-condemning, self-hate, feeling worthless and even feeling that there is no hope. Theis shares her faith-based journey and provides strategies on how you can be set free from the bondage of rejection.

Theis will be the guest at a special “meet and greet” on the main floor of the historic Carnegie library in Paulding from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 26. Visitors will have an opportunity to drop in during the two-hour period, meet the author, and if they want, purchase this special book.
