Bounce Back for a stronger and more resilient You!
February 10, 2014
Women, have you experienced a loss, failure, exhaustion, stress, depression, despair, profound grief, or a deep and abiding loneliness? Do you find yourself rehearsing your problems over and over again, without any positive outcome? Has your self-esteem been stripped naked in the public square, for all to see? You may not be able to see it in the midst of your circumstance, but God has a very particular and personal plan waiting for you on the other side of your trial. When your heart is empty and your dreams are lost, Julie Clinton takes you directly to the heart of God to help you to Bounce Back with a stronger and more resilient you.
Using a unique approach, God's Word, and a myriad of examples collected over years of shepherding women in her Extraordinary Women Ministries, Julie Clinton walks you through three healing steps. First, Breathe. Take a retreat to the Lord for an emotional and spiritual breathing of your soul. Find your "foundation stones" for life. Next, Believe. Replace the old tapes playing inside your head with God's powerful words about who He says you areÃ¢â¬âBelieve it. Finally, make the decision to Bounce Back. Julie explains that every Bounce-Back is individual. It involves a definite purpose, and an action taken to move onward, to move forward, and to move higher.
When you take the risk to Bounce Back, you won't be the same, you will be better! You will bounce back stronger, and you will be ready to face the lifelong process of renewal by staying connected to God's Word.
With an easy writing style, some fetching title headings, and advice that hits the bull's eye, Julie Clinton presents valuable tools and a successful method to help hurting women walk through their dark valley and emerge victorious.
I especially liked two aspects of this book. First, Julie shows the reader how important the Word of God is to bring about healing to hurting people. Without the Word of God, can anyone be truly healed? The second is the Reflection Guide provided in the back of the book. The Reflection Guide includes Bible verses, prayers, passages to reflect upon, and how-to's for practical application. Great for Book or Bible Study groups!
It's plain to see that Julie cares deeply about the physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being of her readers. And, from the deep bench of endorsements this book has received, including a touching "Bounce-Back" Foreword by Karen Kingsbury, it's apparent that Julie Clinton is well-loved by her colleagues in Christian Women's ministries.
