Publisher's Description

While our culture places great emphasis on comfort, security, control, and success, there are deeper rewards for those who take hold of God's promises and reach out in the Name of Christ. Adventure, faith, miracles, and a deep knowledge of Jesus Christ. This is what Susie calls her readers to realize.

Author and speaker Susie Larson makes her message graspable, accessible, and doable. Her stories, scriptural devotionals, and study questions set the stage for a first-hand experience of God's heart for personal freedom, for the plight of the suffering, and for a conviction to get involved with His work among those in need.
While the book's primary focus is on the reader's journey into freedom, it clearly conveys our shared responsibility to "seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, [and] plead for the widow" (Isaiah 1:17, nrsv). This is God's expectation for those who truly know Him.

When we live in bondage to our fears, insecurities, shame, guilt, despair, or sinful appetites, we live self-focused lives. But when we embrace our freedom in Christ, our hearts are released from captivity and we view everything around us as tools to bring that same freedom to those who desperately need it. This book is for the woman who wants to grow stronger in her walk of faith and who wants to gain a greater view of God's heart for the world. May she be provoked, to be as free as God meant her to be. And as a result, may she become an advocate for the freedoms of others.  

Each chapter includes devotional insights, justice quotes, anecdotes, prayer guidance, and study/reflective questions.

    Susie Larsons Embracing Your Freedom is a devotional that goes further and deeper than any other devotional for women that Ive read. Written with a passion for living life in Christ in freedom and a heart for justice for the enslaved and abused, Larson deftly juxtaposes personal spiritual development with global social justice. Going far beyond the materialistic, give me more stuff, make my life comfortable devotionals that continue to pop up like toadstools in night soil, Larson gustily calls women to a life that matters.Each of the four major sections begins with a true-life story of a woman in captivity, a woman who has escaped her bonds through the intervention of concerned believers and is now standing in freedom. Each of the 24 chapters begins with reflections upon striving towards liberty in our spiritual lives, believing in Gods work in us, and striving for more of Him.Larson then deftly turns her pen to the correlations between our own search for freedom here in the west and the much more desperate struggle against physical slavery and imprisonment that is more wide spread than ever before. Each chapter closes with an empowering, faith-filled prayer for us and for those in captivity and an in-depth study session.These study sessions are amongst the meatiest Ive seen in any Christian title outside of full-blown Bible studies. Larson asks us to read through passages of scripture, engage in self-examination, write prayers, memorize scripture, and more. This isnt a journey you can blaze through, and is one that youll likely return to more than once.Deeply involved with the work of International Justice Mission (IJM), I highly recommend Embracing Your Freedom; powerfully written, inspiring, informative, and truly a blessing that points towards a life thats more full of Christ than ourselves, this is one you shouldnt miss out on.

    This book deals with how our freedom in Christ, which He so want us to accept, can be transformed into helping those in the world who are also suffering. Dealing with the subject of slavery whether it be physical or spiritual - sounds like it may be depressing, but Mrs. Larson points us to the hope and the transformation that comes only through Christ. And He wants us to reach other people after weve been set free. Rarely in my life have I been so profoundly affected by a book. It is clear from Susies writing that she has a compassionate heart for people especially for women. The Lord seems to be directing me lately to three subjects which are of utmost importance in this book: 1) freedom in Christ; 2) social justice; and 3) Gods supremacy/sovereignty. Susie really illuminates these subjects in this book. She lays her heart out open and exposed to show what the Lord has done in her life.I found this book to be deep and revealing and life-changing if you allow the Lord to implement the changes in your life and illuminate the dark places. That is usually an unpleasant situation to place yourself in, but it is only through sin and darkness being exposed that real healing from the Lord can come. Susie has been healed in many areas of her life, and her heart is to use that healing and freedom to help others. It has certainly opened my eyes to subjects (such as human trafficking, sexual abuse) which we tend to avert our gaze. Susie points out the fact that Jesus, instead of looking the other way, actively sought out those people who were the most deeply wounded. Susie directs us to do the same, and after reading this book you will also be compelled and drawn to do just that. I thank her for exposing her heart and making us aware of these issues and reminding us of the freedom that Christ can give.This book was provided to me by Moody Publishers for review purposes.

    Freedom. It can be taken for granted, but if it was taken away...Did you know that 27 million people are held as slaves today? In fact, more slaves exist now than during the 300 plus years of the transatlantic slave trade. Does that startle you?If we expand that to include those who are being held captive in a spiritual sense, the number would grow exponentially. The enemy is crafty and desires to hold us in bondage. BUT, we serve a God who loves freedom.In her newest release Embracing Your Freedom, author Susie Larson, tackles the subject of freedom. She encourages women to take back the land the enemy has stolen, to take back their freedom so that they can be used by God in big, world-changing ways. She also shares stories of the difference International Justice Mission (IJM) is making to restore freedom to people all over the world (In fact, 50% of all profits from this book will be donated to IJM). At the end of every chapter is a prayer, a prayer for personal freedom and a prayer for the freedom of the millions in our world who are held in bondage. The prayers blessed me in a big way.In the last chapter of the book, Susie writes, "God does not want us to live in fear, hoard what we have, or hide who we are. It's time to step up and step out."This book is a challenge to step up and step out, to use your life to make a difference, to join in the kingdom work God has assigned you, to be a world-changer. It is a book I highly recommend and pray that it will inspire many to fight for freedom, freedom in Christ and freedom for the millions around the world who are literally enslaved and held in bondage.
