PK Syndrome: Do You Have It? is the debut release by indie author, Melody Thompson. A licensed professional counselor, Thompson mixes her personal experience as a pastor's kid, or PK, with biblical wisdom and therapeutic dialogue. Although the book is targeted to the offspring of pastors, ministers, and ministry leaders, the topics offer healing to any reader desiring wholeness.
PK Syndrome analyzes the testimonies of other PK's to identify and address common themes, such as entitlement, perfectionism, transference, and lost identity. Don't worry--if you're not a PK, there is something for you as well. The book also highlights universal issues, like bitterness, unforgiveness, and intimacy. PK Syndrome categorically chips away at the mask worn by most people in the public eye. By isolating each problem and offering a solution, Thompson outlines a biblical pathway to healing and truth.
Thompson emphasizes that PK Syndrome: Do You Have It? is not written as an attempt to criticize, jugde, or shame the pastoring parent, but its purpose is "to heal wounds, expose the root of current struggles, and deliver us from transgressions." Her prayer is that all who read will be transformed by God on their journey to purpose and greatness in Him.
