Christians are hurting. And sometimes the church hurts people, sidelining and silencing them until they feel unworthy.

Christian self-help includes God, collaboration with others and doing the work we need to do toward healing. Christian self-help aims for spiritual health, wellness, and abundant life so that you can fulfil God's call for you. 

My new release provides 21 steps to help you heal from everyday hurts. Unlike other self-help books, these steps are each illustrated by examples from my own life and from Mara, a character in my historical fiction, Forgotten Followers from Broken to Bold. Now you can walk with Mara with this stand-alone book to build your own emotional resilience.
