Dr. Mark W. Baker wants to open your eyes to the real battle you’re facing and teach you the skills to effectively fight back. He will help you see…
- how guilt is often helpful, but shame is always harmful
- what you can do to restore relationships that have been damaged
- why you need and deserve a renewed understanding of your worth
Combining psychological research, sound biblical teachings, and clinical experience, Dr. Baker provides a valuable resource to address the pain no one talks about—and explore the only remedy that can bring real healing.

Spiritual Wisdom for a Happier Life: How Your 8 Key Emotions Can Work for You
There are eight basic human emotions that all people experience–hurt, guilt/shame, anger, anxiety, sorrow, fear, happiness, and love. We might believe we make sense of our lives by thinking through our experiences, but neuroscience shows that the part of our brains that processes emotions is many times faster than the part where logic and reason hold sway. It’s the way God created us, but if we do not develop wisdom for handling our feelings, we may find that our emotions continue to get the best of us.
Thankfully, the Bible is full of guidance about our emotions. With keen insight into human psychology and a gift for drawing wisdom for life from Scripture, Dr. Mark Baker shows readers how they can find comfort and promote emotional health in their lives. Anyone experiencing distress in their relationships or struggling with overwhelming emotions or even traumatic events will find clear biblical help and healing, leading them to a happier, more fulfilled life.

Filled with biblical quotations, real-life stories, and divided into two major sections, “Understanding People” and “Knowing Yourself,” this easy-to-use guide reveals how the gospel continues to have the power to lighten the darkest corners of the human spirit.
