Publisher's Description

When you host a program for women, and you open up the phone lines, email box, and Facebook page, you often resonate with their heart-breaking stories. That’s been the case as women have tuned in to Moody Radio’s Midday Connection, a radio show co-hosted by author Anita Lustrea, and shared their struggles and victories. When issues are raised such as loneliness, friendship, mothering, domestic abuse, sexual addiction, and body image, women pour out their hearts. Lustrea has heard heart-breaking stories through the years, and those stories have intersected with her own story of heartbreak. God lovingly weaves these stories into a tapestry to be used for His glory. Lustrea’s story means nothing without the impact of all of the other stories she has heard. Sometimes the church tries to sweep the hard stories under the carpet. Somehow we’ve gotten the impression that the hard things of life shouldn’t be shared. But when you allow your stories to become known, start to interact with the stories of others, and then allow God to work in and through your life, something miraculous starts to happen. In What Women Tell Me, Anita Lustrea tells her story along with the difficult stories of other women. For a long time, she listened to those who said “you can only hurt others by sharing your wounds.” When she realized that was a lie, she saw for the first time that through her wounds, she could be an agent of healing in the body of Christ.

News Release

For over ten years, women have shared stories of struggle and victory with Anita Lustrea, executive producer and host of Moody Radio's Midday Connection, a live radio program heard around the country. Women pour out their hearts on the air and share deeply personal stories about loneliness, friendship, mothering, domestic abuse, sexual addiction and body image. Hearing these moving stories changed Lustrea's life in unexpected ways, from how she thinks about God to the way she engages as a woman in the workforce and how she uses her radio program to minister to the hearts of women.

In What Women Tell Me: Finding Freedom from the Secrets We Keep, Lustrea shares pieces of her listeners' heartbreaking stories and how these stories intertwine with her own never-before-told personal story that includes weight struggles, intense loneliness and a public divorce. Without having heard her listeners' stories, Lustrea's own victory and personal freedom would not have been possible.

"Confessing secrets is rarely pretty, but always freeing," says Lustrea, "and there appears to be a need among women in the church. There is a sickness of soul and it is epidemic. The root cause is the secrets we carry. We are bound up with secrets - the kind of secrets that weigh us down and keep us from being all God intended us to be."

Topics found in What Women Tell Me include:

  • Confronting painful secrets and finding the courage to share them
  • Seeking out true and healthy friendships
  • Overcoming low self-esteem and body image issues
  • Dealing with the stigma of divorce in the church
  • Raising emotionally and spiritually healthy kids in a single parent home
  • Identifying and escaping domestic abuse
  • Opening your heart to Jesus so that healing may begin
