Donna Partow knows the hard road that must be traveled
to escape a life enslaved by sin. She knows your struggles, your
excuses, and the small ways that can encourage your soul. Most
of all she knows the deep desire you have to experience freedom
in Christ. Her newest ten-week devotional, Living in Absolute
Freedom, can be viewed as a map to help you navigate around
the dead ends and rough patches that have stopped you before.
Her first two devotionals, Walking in Total God-Confidence
and the now-classic Becoming a Vessel God Can Use (with
sales of 5,000 copies), prove that Partow is blessed with insights
in how to relate to God that you and other women need to hear
about. Her newest book begins a new journey that can be shared
in a group or experienced during your own devotional time.
Living in Absolute Freedom looks at the difficult issue
of Christians living enslaved lives despite the proclamation that
"it is for freedom that Christ has set us free." Legalism,
sin, status, others' opinions, materialism, and wrong priorities
can all set a believer in bondage. Whether spiritual, mental,
or emotional, each is just as real and painful as any physical
restraint, except the chains are fashioned from fear of failure,
fear of success, or fear of rejection rather than links of iron.
"Anything that holds you back from being and doing all that
God has created you to be and to do" is Donna Partow's definition
of slavery. With a personal transparency and vulnerability rarely
seen, she articulates the types of bondage most typically found
in women's lives today and then provides the necessary steps for
regaining freedom and living in it.
Glean God's special calling for you to live an emancipated life
and embark on a journey away from captivity and into the delightful
and expansive wonder of God's grace.
Donna Partow is a bestselling author and Christian communicator with a compelling testimony of God's transforming power, making her a popular guest on more than two hundred radio and TV shows, including Focus on the Family. Donna's honesty and vulnerability speak to women who have broken dreams and less-than-perfect lives. As Donna says, "I'm on the planet for one reason: to demonstrate that God has absolutely no standards--he'll take anybody in. If you are willing to turn your life over to God, no matter what a mess you've made, he will astound a watching world with what he can do!"
Her books have sold a half million copies worldwide and have been translated (in part or in whole) into numerous languages. She is also a regular speaker for women's groups and retreats. Donna and her family live near Phoenix, Arizona.
