ZiggySomers, NYAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5NourishingDecember 29, 2018ZiggySomers, NYAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have used Joyce's teaching materials in the past and have found them to be repetitive and/or shallow, in that, when using the workbooks with the texts it was mostly read and copy. But I think she has a winner here. Because of her past, because of her experiences, this book is deeper and gentle as it guides you through thinking about your own hurts and healing process. Just reading Genesis 1-3 with fresh eyes showed me all of things I had amazingly missed pertaining to all of the elements of the Fall and how women were deeply wounded by this through history. I received the set for Christmas and I believe it is a set I will look at more than once since healing is a journey and a process.

That bring hope for healing for those that have been hurt, abused, neglected, forsaken by man, but NEVER forsaken by the very God of the universe, The Lover of our souls and our Creator. She making it very clear that this healing comes by persevering even when the process brings pain, because the end result is better than anything we can imagine....For God so loves....

She includes much of what she has written in her other books in this one. If you have not read anything from Meyer, this is a good place to start.
Meyer focuses on wounded women and their healing. We know that women have been mistreated world wide. If you're a woman, chances are you have been wounded physically or emotionally in some way.
Meyer reminds us that God will use the painful things we have experienced if we let Him. Healing is a process, taking diligence and time. She gives practical steps and techniques as well as personal examples of the way it all works. Meyer is honest in letting readers know of her own successes and failures along the way.
Readers of Meyer will be familiar with her encouragement to control thoughts and concentrate on God's Word. I found new insights that specifically deal with being wounded. I had no idea of the effects of a wounded soul, such as internalizing shame. Meyer emphasizes the difference between "knowing" Scripture and having it a working reality in life. Her section on self pity was not only enlightening but also convicting.
I highly recommend this book to women who have been wounded. This book is not merely theory. Meyer writes from her own experience of being sexually molested by her father and finally, as an adult, being healed. You'll read about the importance of forgiveness and how we must believe God more than what we or others think. You'll learn about boundaries, not giving up, and much more. This is a good book to encourage you to begin the process of healing and to help you each step of the way.
Food for thought: "God's Word renews our mind and teaches us an entirely new way to think about God, life, ourselves, and other people." (Loc 307/3210)
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
