Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5A Heavy Dose Of Hope For Women In PainOctober 25, 2017Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5She Is Free: Learning The Truth About The Lies That Hold You Captive by Andi Andrew is mostly comprised of snippets of Andi's personal journey to face those lies which keep a lot of women from embracing their full value and having a close personal relationship with God. As Andi reveals her past struggles, she provides both Biblical and practical insight, along with suggestions to help other women who are facing similar imprisonment from unforgiveness, fear, anger, shame, control, and isolation.
For each of these captors, Andi starts by posing the common lie the enemy uses to keep us from connecting with God. She then shows us how this lie influenced her life, the revelation that made her confront and overcome it, the truth that replaces the lie, and personal suggestions for "walking in freedom". Most of the suggestions are simple steps like a prayer to recite, a Bible excerpt to read, or questions to reflect on.
While this book does not tackle the very core of some deep-rooted issues, it does provide a soothing dose of hope for even those most painful conditions. It's not just for the light-hearted surface pain but rather it's designed to shine a light into the broken crevices of our souls and help the healing process begin. If you're looking for a psychology book or just a scriptural resource, this is not it. Instead, this is a moving testimony from someone who has faced the same struggles and wants to take your hand and walk you out of your self-created prison and out into the sunlit courtyard that is the Lord's love and peace.
I would recommend this book to any woman who is struggling with the lies the enemy so frequently places in our paths. Whether you already know God and would just like a friendly reminder of His love for you and His plans for your life, or if you've never uttered His name but are just desperate to find a better way to live - this book is for you. Andi even includes a prayer in the appendix for those women who have yet to accept Christ into their lives. 4/5 stars.

Elise5 Stars Out Of 5More than a book - a tool for spiritual change!October 3, 2017EliseQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"She is Free" is revolutionary. It pushes you to think critically about the lies you've been led to believe and the walls you've constructed around your vulnerability while encouraging you with love to run to God, spend time in His presence, and walk in true authority and freedom. There are heartfelt anecdotes from the author's own life; deep Biblical truths rooted in God's unwavering love and desire for His people; and practical steps on how to break the chains that are binding you. This is more than a book; it's a tool for change.
Andi's passion is palpable and contagious, and it is clear that this is not just a moneymaker for her; this book is truly about equipping people (especially women) to walk confidently and activating the Spirit within them. We are free to set others free, which is a rallying anthem that cries from the very pages. This book leaves you hungering for internal change and God's word; sometimes I have a hard time picking up my Bible, but the powerful Scripture used throughout has me craving the Lord every day. It's not just a book to pick up and put down. You will highlight, you will underline, you will cry ugly tears with mascara dripping down your fave, and you will be dying to share it with every woman you know. Andi has purposeful questions for reflection at the end of every chapter too, which makes it ideal for a community group.
I couldn't recommend this highly enough.
