ENUMCLAW, Wash., Mar. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- "Some images are not meant for the eyes to see or the mind to keep, but when seen, they can imprint themselves in the mind and soul forever. It takes considerable time to block out those memories, but it is possible, by learning to replace the images of horror with images of God's pure creation," says Susie Johnson author of the soothing new release "Reclaiming God's Peace Within [Pleasant Word, 2006]."


A retired nurse and Vietnam veteran, Mitzie Deike fills the pages of the book with exquisite, uplifting photography. Having struggled with the affects of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Mitzie discovered a way to replace the graphic images sketched in her mind from the war with tranquil images of God's creation. Now Susie and Mitzie seek to help others fill their minds with reflections of God's beauty. "'Peace within' is achieved at a rate of one moment and one image at a time," encourages Mitzie.


Dedicated to military personnel, veterans, and medical personnel who suffer from emotional and psychological trauma, the book provides a tool to help replace graphic scenes with pictures of a more tranquil time. "'Reclaiming God's Peace Within' holds far more than beautiful pictures; it also holds a beautiful promise. The promise that no matter how many troubling images are part of your memories, you can choose to focus on the beauty that lies not only in the pages of this book but in the pages of your life," says author and relationship consultant, Pat Love. This book promises to be a great comfort and tool to the new generations of men and women returning home with PTSD.
