Set Free to Live Free~ review and Mother's Day Giveaway
From the Back Cover
Imagine life with unlimited possibility, where fear, misconceptions, and insecurities don't have the power to rob you of your potential or your dreams. Many women have trouble seeing this vision because they are bound by lies that keep them from living free.
In Set Free to Live Free, Saundra Dalton-Smith shows you how to break free from seven mental ties that hold you back and steal your joy, like striving for perfection, comparing yourself to others, and having an all-or-nothing attitude. Through compelling stories and inspirational writing, she encourages you to embrace spontaneity, be transparent, nurture your body, and cultivate a balanced life.
My take on this book:
Ever feel like you didn't measure up somehow? Perhaps you might struggle with self esteem issues, or perhaps your the person that looks at life as an all or nothing deal, or if you have ever felt like your not good enough then this book is definitely for you. In Set Free to Live Free, Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith brings to light and shows us how to break free from the seven mental ties that often keep women from reaching their full potential, in essence robbing them of fulfillment and joy.
The seven lies are:
She uses short stories to share examples of the lies we either tell ourselves, or that have been told to us so often that we believe them. I like that fact that she says that freedom is a choice, and while faith and prayer is an element of change,teaching that for each lie that there is a Bible based promise to release us from that lie, she also encourages to really make a difference we must change ourselves to break free from the lies we have been bound by.
This book is written in a clear and concise manner, and is very easy to use. The eight week study guide included in the back would make this book perfect for women's study groups, but it is also a great tool to use individually. I think all women would benefit greatly from this book.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
