The chapter entitled "Fear and the Faith Factor" was a personal favorite. Following the principle of scripture you will learn how to make decisions not on fear but on prayer.

I met this lovely dynamo of a woman at the Writers Conference in the Blue Ridge Mountains, May 2008. Like a magnet those of us at the conference were drawn into her enthusiasm. As I read this book I could "see" Vonda moving and feel her energy coming through the words.As Vonda says: A half truth is a whole lie. And that is how the devil gets us, with half-truths. Vodna led me through ten chapters, teaching me that it's not how beautiful I am, nor how much stuff I manage to accumulate but learning to trust in Him. I will never be good enough. That is true. But I don't have to be. Jesus Christ has said He is the way the truth and the life. He wants me to submit to him and to His will for my life. "Our past failure does not have to affect our future calling." ~~ Vonda SkeltonRead Seeing Through the Lies and be blessed.

Vonda Skeltons Seeing Through The Lies is a completely engaging non-fiction read. The beautiful cover will draw you to this wonderful book that champions women by combating the falsehoods we believe about ourselves and life in general. Specific subjects include physical beauty, lifes pace, boundaries, fear, contentment, humility, marriage, motherhood, servanthood, and much more.Each chapter has 5 daily scripture readings, encouraging the reader to savor the chapter over several days instead of tearing through the material. There are also a couple of questions for personal reflection and discussion with a small group. More discussion questions can be found at the end of the book. There are practical tips and exercises, a terrific list of books, websites and other resources.
