We live in a broken fallen world, and sometimes need help in making sense of the hurtful, painful things in our lives. These books are real stories and can help women find freedom from the paralyzing effects of betrayal, fear and deception through the liberating truths of Scripture.
The Freedom Series deals with many issues that I have come across during the decades I have counseled people at my church. Each book is great for its designed application. However, the Fear to Courage book stands out the most to me since so many are driven by fear. This book is so Bible-based, very direct, easy to understand, and also applicable. It is refreshing to have a resource that doesn't just talk about an issue, but shows how to apply biblical concepts to it. I highly recommend this series!
