 Barbara and Chuck Cleveland

My writings include more than two dozen feature articles (A Slice of Life) for my local newspaper, as well as contributing sports columns to the Newnan Times-Herald for nine years. In addition,
I’ve co-written several published Christian songs.


Born in 1946 (Arlington, VA), I have lived in the Atlanta area (with the exception of eight months) since 1962. I was born again in 1971, and married my dear wife Barbara in 1976.


Now retired, I serve as Board of Directors President for the Good Samaritan Transition House,
a local men’s shelter. My other primary involvement is with a men’s Bible study
at our church.

Taming Our Tigers In The Basement

The four chapters of this short book are:


1. Peace by Pretending

2. Like Father, Like God

3. Learning to Love

4. The Only Thing That Counts


The basic premise is that our emotional history affects what we think about ourselves, what we think about God, and how we relate to others. Our “tigers in the basement” are those unresolved conflicts many of us carry from childhood that are submerged in our subconscious and adversely affect our lives as adults. By “going on safari”, we can identify those family-of-origin issues and remove their power to inflict pain and detract from the wholeness God would have us experience.


The book, then, is one of healing – both emotional and relational. Though the case study is about me, I think others can draw analogies to their situations and benefit. The often-difficult journey, I should note, requires honesty and humility, but the reward can be a softened heart. Here’s how I expressed the process in a song lyric:


He binds up the brokenhearted,

sets us free at last;

the healing of his love

overcomes our past.

Beauty for ashes

is what he freely gives;

be his new creation

so you can finally live.


Come on safari with me. God wants us to go forth in peace, not pieces.
