One of the ways that Christians nurture each other is by sharing their life experiences frankly. This book is a great example of the way that a mature and courageous Christian woman has opened up her own life so that others can learn from her and be strengthened in their faith. The author has pulled no punches about the mistakes she has made in her own life, and her personal struggle to grow into maturity because of those mistakes. She has a wonderful sense of humor, as shows clearly in the manuscript, but delivers her message with unmistakable strength. She encourages her readers to look inward, to their sense of self as well as their faith, and to learn to live a "purposed-filled life" (to quote Rick Warren) and to stop the games that stand in their way from becoming proud, strong, and Bible-based Christians. Copyediting the book was a joy, and there were plenty of moments when I laughed out loud, and thought "you go, girl " Marc D. Baldwin, PhD, www.edit911.com, Inc. Sherri Young is an extraordinary trailblazer while using her many talents and gifts to fulfill God's purpose for her life. She tries to live her life by Romans 12:2 (TLB) "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how His ways will really satisfy you." She dares to be different.
