How can we turn away? One more story may stir the emotions of empathy but also helplessness. Relinquishing this pull-push feels irresponsible. It can also become irresistible. Obsession, and how to put it down, is at the core of This is My Body by Cameron Dezen Hammom, a book that ostensibly deals with one woman’s tested faith and a marriage that is pitted against her intense attraction to someone else.

She doesn't have all the answers. But hearing her gives us tools. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
