Publisher's Description

Can you really start over again and have a meaningful life?

After experiencing deep emotional hurts?

After struggling with ingrained dysfunctional habits?

After falling into addiction?

After making destructive choices that alienate your family and friends?

Can guilt, shame, and regret ever be healed?

Many people feel that once they’ve made mistakes or bad decisions, or once they’ve been damaged by others, they can never set their life on a positive course again. If you feel this way, the real answer is that you can.

Author Tracy Strawberry, wife of baseball great Darryl Strawberry, says it starts with who you are. Both she and her husband have been in that hopeless place and successfully moved past it. Tracy knows what it takes to get free and to stay free in multiple areas of life, and, for twenty years, she has helped numerous people do the same. She knows how hard it is to face the daily challenges of moving forward from the past and the consequences it brings. She understands that it takes step-by-step direction, faith, and encouragement to achieve it, and you will find all of that in abundance in these pages.

This book presents proven, practical, systematic steps for attaining healing from past pain, addictions, and dysfunctional patterns of living. Tracy explains that God does not just evacuate us out of our struggles. It requires a process of change where we learn to make positive and creative new choices. You can live a victorious life by relying on the transformative power of God and actively engaging in the process of change, one choice at a time.

Your struggles are not who you are—they are what you are overcoming. No matter where you are in life, you have permission to hope and dream again. To dare to image yourself in a better place with a good future. To have The Courage to Heal.

Editorial Reviews

In The Courage to Heal, Tracy Strawberry writes about the hard things people go through, including guilt, shame, regret, consequences of the past, and feelings of being trapped in a cycle of failure, dysfunction, or defeat. Tracy does so with empathy, encouragement, and grace. At the same time, she demonstrates the saving, healing, and redeeming power of God through her own life story, the power of the Holy Spirit, practical application, and godly principles. No matter what area of life you struggle with, you will find true encouragement and a clear pathway forward.

In The Courage to Heal, my wife, Tracy, brings you proven principles for overcoming your past, reinventing yourself, moving forward, and become the very best "you" the Lord created you to be. Whether you are stuck in life or dealing with emotional pain, negative habits, difficult relationships, or addictions, you can live in the fullness of God’s purpose for your life as you eliminate the obstacles that are hindering you from moving forward. Healing that leads to lasting change comes by making difficult but positive choices, trusting in God, taking practical steps, staying the course, and fighting for the freedom you deserve! We can do this only by God’s transforming power in our lives and a determination to change the patterns that have led to frustration and pain, and, for some, despair and defeat. Tracy has bravely gone through this process and discovered powerful steps for rebuilding your life from the ground up and then flourishing in wholeness of spirit, mind, and body. Her faith and determination to turn her life around have always been a great inspiration to me and helped me to follow the same path to victory. I love her deeply, and I am so proud that she did not allow her pain, addictions, and dysfunctional loving and living to define her but instead recognized they were obstacles she was in the process of overcoming through a close relationship with God, a renewed outlook, and strong positive choices. In this book, as in her life, her encouragement is contagious and her power-change principles offer fresh hope, a new start, and lasting change! I know her book will give you The Courage to Heal.

In The Courage to Heal, Tracy Strawberry is very transparent about her difficult life as well as her deep struggle to surrender her life to Jesus Christ. She shares openly about how her hurts and rebellion created a damaging, self-destructive belief system about God through her own opinions, worldly desires, and past experiences. She fought God with every fiber of her being until desperation and losing custody of her three sons brought her to her knees and led her to find the courage to heal. She opened her heart to dare to believe—and receive—the purity and power of God’s truth and love, which completely healed and transformed her into the mighty woman of God she is today.
