Publisher's Description

I’m not good enough. It’s my fault. I am alone. I am worthless. The voices and lies you give power to shape who you are and attempt to hijack your identity, twisting your perspective on God, family, career, church, and other relationships. Whose voice are you listening to?

You are a champion by God’s design. In Fight Forward, Brenda Crouch bravely shares her story of overcoming the abuse she suffered as a child and an adult. She offers practical solutions that will help you:
  • Find courage to dismantle the façade and embrace your true identity.
  • Break the cycle of a victim mindset and trust the power of God to set you free.
  • Discover the strength to say no to users and learn to recognize authentic love.
  • Ditch self-ambition and explore the wealth of your divine purpose.
  • Find your voice and help others heal.
Be propelled into favor and fulfillment as you listen to God’s voice. He wants you to know the relevance of your authentic value and the unique purpose for which you were born. 
 

Author Bio

Brenda is passionate about getting the message of hope and healing to those who are sleepwalking through life or feeling marginalized in their God-given purpose because of intimidation and control from abusive influences. Having learned about the reality of mental illness and its effects on loved ones through painful life experiences, she is also qualified to offer sound advice and encouragement to anyone who desires to break free from a victim mentality!
 
Brenda was awakened to the entertainment industry at an early age as a child of gospel music recording artists. She was predisposed for a career in music earning a professional status as a singer at an early age. Through scholarships funded by the Miss Nevada / Miss America Pageant, Brenda studied Biblical and Ministerial Arts at Capital Bible Institute in Sacramento, California. She achieved success as a TV spokesmodel, radio and TV jingle singer, and voice-over artist. As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and adult domestic violence, Brenda eventually found her true identity and healing through her personal and private journey with Christ and the wisdom of true, godly counsel.
 
Brenda’s greatest joy and achievement has been raising her daughter, Bryanna, as an honest example of what it means to walk daily with Christ and break every generational curse. She has served in various music ministries and churches as a worship leader, singer/songwriter, blogger, and public speaker, while working for over twenty years as a decorative artist and self-taught interior designer.
 
Brenda is the wife of American Christian broadcaster and film producer Paul Crouch, Jr. Together they live in Southern California and are the grandparents of four boys and one girl.

Editorial Reviews

In Fight Forward, Brenda Crouch bravely removes the mask of a counterfeit identity to reveal the truth about our authentic value. Her honest portrayal of the journey to freedom from the traumatic effects of abuse through courageous faith will encourage you.
- Kevin and Sam Sorbo, award-winning filmmakers and authors

My father, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, has often said to me, "There’s a lot of private pain in public life." And most often those in ministry feel pressured to mask their troubles, fearing the disappointment and condemnation that exposure of those challenges might bring forth. Well, no more! In Fight Forward, Brenda Crouch courageously lifts her veil and shows us how transparency leads to transformation. Blessed assurance, our scars can become our stars. Thank you, Brenda, for reminding us that our pain is our pathway to our greatest possibilities and power.
- Santita Jackson, executive producer, producer, and co-host, Keep Hope Alive with Rev. Jesse Jackson radio show, singer; television and radio host/producer

I was deeply moved as I read Fight Forward. Brenda Crouch is tenderly vulnerable as she skillfully shares painful areas of abuse and her journey into wholeness. It is truly a must read and a safe read for those who have walked on similar paths, and it is especially insightful for those who haven’t. Brenda shares valuable revelation regarding the healing, restoration, and freedom that flow from knowing your true identity—making you a victor and not a victim.

Brenda’s beautifully written book, Fight Forward, reminds us that no matter what we’ve been through or no matter what we are facing, we serve a God who restores and heals.

- Sid Roth, president and host of It’s Supernatural
In Romans 12:18 Paul instructs us, "If it is possible as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone." To live "at peace" means giving up and allowing God to take on the suffering and pain we have endured throughout our life’s journey. Jesus endured the cross so that we would have the option to choose peace. In family relationships, marriages, and friendships that have cut into our beings, the blood of Jesus is the only healing solvent—but our healing also depends on us and what we choose. Brenda Crouch has chosen peace. In her book Fight Forward: Reclaim the Real You, she reveals her healing journey so you can take a risk and embark on the same steps toward peace. If you are struggling, don’t miss this revealing, heartfelt read. Choose peace.

- Marion Pyle, president, Legacy Media Lab, writer, director, producer, actor, author

In the words of Dr. Brené Brown, "owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness." Brenda Crouch’s book Fight Forward is all courage, bathed in truth and motivated by love.
- Bobby Downes, filmmaker and founder, ChristianCinema.com
Foreword:

The journey to becoming fully human in Christ is a lifelong one. The process is ongoing and continues until we receive our glorified bodies in the consummation of the kingdom. Until then, we are not fully there, not fully human, and not fully persons. That doesn’t mean we aren’t human beings; it just means we aren’t fully human beings, and we aren’t fully persons because we are still "on our way."

Our personhood is rooted in our creation in the image and likeness of God. Adam was created to exist for God and for others, and when Adam fell, he fell headlong into self-centered individualism. Individualism enables us to shift blame and refuse to take responsibility for the choices we make. It allows us to avoid reckoning with the resulting outcomes.

With Adam’s fall, our choices became self-made, and sin left its imprint on the human race. We took a deep dive into the rebellion of individualism and independence, and we lost the essence of true humanness and personhood. The immediate results of Adam’s individualism and independence were violence and death. The first family became quite dysfunctional, and the first murder was indeed fratricide: a deadly confrontation between two brothers.

Abuse is nothing new to humanity, and dysfunctional family systems are as old as time itself. The dysfunction of our individualistic, self-centered culture rears its ugly head in so many ways and causes us to lash out against others. Our words, for example, have both the ability to kill and the ability to create life. To tell a child that they will never amount to anything has a lifelong impact. It leaves a mark—an imprint that requires the salvific presence of God himself to mend and heal (a process that can take years). And in a society where we cater to instant gratification, the notion of healing and wholeness as a lifelong journey feeds the frenzy of our already restless and fast-paced lifestyles. 

As much as we may affirm that we are new creations in Christ, we also affirm we are beset by weaknesses, and the feelings of our infirmities can often get the best of us. An infirmity is that which takes away our strength. All sorts of things throughout our journey rob us of our strength and challenge our ability to move forward. None of us arrive at adulthood without wounds, even if we were raised in a Christian home. Brokenness and beauty coexist in all of us, and the reason is simple: sin is still present; good and evil still coexist, and we are fallible and flawed and in need of grace to be and to become who the Father intended in Christ by His Spirit. 

Our journeys leave some of us more wounded than others and vulnerable to the experience of victimization. Depending on the degree of victimization, the innocent party may suffer great trauma, and with great trauma often comes a profound level of shock and numbness. Many victims subconsciously freeze their pain, and the process of thawing out their emotions and allowing themselves to feel again can take years. Denial and anger are often present simply because it can be far too painful for the victim to admit the wound ever happened in the first place.

But there is hope. In Jesus we see true personhood, true humanity, and the opposite of egocentric individualism. Jesus isn’t out to "get"; He exists to give. Christ was the victim of the worst and most cruel hate crime in all of history, and through His own death, burial, resurrection, and ascension, He established a pathway for victims to become victors in and through Him. 

I have known Brenda Crouch for a number of years, and I have been deeply impacted by her life story. I am moved by the way the Lord has navigated her through pain to become an agent of the Spirit’s healing grace to others who have suffered wounding. In her brand-new book, Fight Forward: Reclaim the Real You, Brenda makes her life an open book. Her transparency is an open window that lets the fresh air of heaven into the dark rooms of our isolation and pain, where our wounds have grown foul and festered. Her story will not only draw you in, but it will also invite you to explore the pain you have endured and help lead you to Jesus, His healing presence, and His grace.

If you are reading this book, it is precisely because you are ready to get your "fight" back—the good fight of faith, which refuses to settle for less than the journey to a future immersed in Jesus’ glorious inheritance. It is time to move forward and reclaim the real you, and this book is as good a place to start as I know to help you take your first step.
