Embracing Your Freedom:
In my travels as a speaker, I observed that while we as American women are literally free, we are not totally free. My new book, “Embracing Your Freedom” calls women to tenaciously contend for their freedom in Christ. All too often we allow ourselves to be bullied by our fears and held back by our insecurities. God has a big plan for our lives; He wants to use us in mind-boggling ways, and we’ll miss out on the great adventure if we choose to live small, self-protective lives.
Freedom is something for which we must contend. All of us have been beaten up and bruised by life. We’ve all had experiences that have affected us in a negative way. And most times, without realizing it, we allow those painful experiences to stunt our growth, confirm our fears, and minimize the impact we could make in this world. We tend to make rules around our insecurities. We make excuses for why we don’t venture out into the unknown places God has for us. But to truly be free is to believe that Jesus can redeem every shred of our painful pasts. If we really want to be free, we have to walk by His side and face the lies we picked up when life let us down. God has new places of promises for all of us! As we step out and experience new freedom and courage, we will grow in our conviction to see others know this same liberty. Most often, our world-changing call is directly connected to one of our painful life experiences. We don’t have to be bound by our painful experiences. In fact, we can change the world because of them!
Embracing Your Freedom calls every woman to lay hold her paid-for-freedom, to step out in gritty faith, and to embrace her call to live a life of significance.
