My responses to her book:
Julie brings hope and encouragement for being freed from our hidden self that keep us bound, miserable behind an "I'm fine" smile. Accepting freedom. Transparency and openness about her life will touch others, to help begin choices at a deep level with valuable life changing principles to put into action. Her own personal life lessons are shared. Julie's storytelling is fluent and easily told. Being who we each are individually, taking responsibility for choices and decisions, right or wrong, owning it.
With honesty and insight, Julie's intimate and soul-searching path from heartache to redemption will help you discover power to let go of shame and embrace freedom; courage to live with deeper faith and transparency; hope that God can beautifully redeem even your worst choices; and tools to equip you to make needed changes and experience God's grace and forgiveness more profoundly.
"One objective of this book is the blessing of transparency--living out who you truly are, allowing people to know you at an intimate level, and learning how to love others and appreciate all that went into shaping them to be the people they are today. It's about life on life's terms, how huge God is, and how women minister to one another." --Julie Ziglar Norman
