We can have all these right practices and more, yet still fall” Emotional and sexual entanglements are a snare. They are so enticing, so promising, and they offer something that seems so good. Lois Mowday Rabey helps us see them for the dangerous trap they really are. And she offers help to those wanting to avoid the snare or escape its grasp.
