First of all, this book is fantastic. I have highlighted, underlined, starred, arrowed, and written all over it. All the things in here, I knew, in some way. I’ve learned these things through Scripture, church, my parents, sisters, my counselor, and my studies. Yet, here, they are in one package. All condensed, labeled, and organized.
I am making notecards to keep close by when I need a reminder. This book can give you the tools you need to be free. For me, freedom has not come easy. I hold onto the wrongs I’ve done, and I try to fix everything. That is not freedom. Honestly, that is me trying to be Jesus. I am not Jesus. He was perfect. I am far from perfect. However, I can be Jesus with skin on, which is a Jesus with boundaries.
