There are two kinds of shame. Legitimate shame is a tool in the hands of a forgiving God; we feel it when we recognize our sin and turn to Him. False shame, on the other hand, is a tool in the hands of the enemy; Satan uses it to convince believers that they are not worthy of Gods love and acceptance, and to turn them away from fellowship with Him. In From Shame to Beauty, readers will discover how to arm themselves against false shame and live confidently in the knowledge of Gods love. This interactive study, ideal for individuals or small groups, guides readers through a process of healing from false shame that has plagued their lives and relationships. From Shame to Beauty includes eight weeks of study. Topics include "Characteristics of Shame," "Cause of Shame," "Contagion of Shame," "Cure for Shame" and much more. Each weeks study examines how false shame threatens the lives of believers, digs into Scripture to find out what Gods Word has to say about it, offers readers the opportunity to reflect on their own struggle with shame and suggests practical action steps to help readers apply what they have learned.
