This book is for anyone who is a survivor of abuse physical, mental, emotional, sexual This shows in a Christian setting how to pick the pieces of your broken life after trama when you re out of danger and gives guidance on how to rebuild your life on the inside I own this book and together God, Joyce, and I put the pieces of my life back together Abuse in any form is very wide spread today If you know of anyone who is suffering, give this book to that person Trust me it will be appreciated.
I made sure that I didn t miss reading a word of this book This book had so much helpful advice and so many detailed examples of dysfunction and how to deal with it, that this book is definitely one not only to read, but to keep for future reference I was amazed how much hardship Joyce Meyer endured growing up It was also amazing how the most wonderful man came along and married her second marriage to Dave Meyer , and how he didn t allow her issues to destroy their marriage while she worked thro [...]
This book is a must read for those who have suffered any type of abuse growing up This is her story of her life, and I can relate to it very well In fact she and I have similar backgrounds The one thing I can say as I watch her now and see her strength in God and see her move on from her past is, if she can do it, ANYONE can do it I love her straight forwardness She doesn t dance around any issue, she tells it like it is, not sugar coating anything.
This book will lift you up when you are feeling at your lowest I read this book at a very dark time in my life and by the time I was finished my whole train of thought had changed I made some changes in my life, forgave several people, forgave myself and turned my life around A definite must read I lost it in a house fire but have been trying to find it again so I can read it again and again.
I have a weakness for this type of book every so often, and every so often I indulge it I like Joyce Meyer especially because even without her religious teaching she offers solid practical advice Some days what you really need is solid practical advice.
I found this book really helpful, I m not in anyway religious so I did tend to get really annoyed at some parts For the main part I took the lessons from this and applied them to my life without the whole religious aspect.The most powerful thing about this book for me, was it made me realise a lot about myself and the abuse I have faced She says a lot of simple things that have made me realise how much anger and hurt I ve been carrying inside of me and by her recognising it and saying simple thi [...]
even though she s pretty hard core christian, i tend to resonate with her lessons at least when I see her on tv it feels like she s speaking directly to what is happening in my life i thought i d like her book due to this, and for the most part i did enjoy it, until i read about how god s plan for her was to submit to her husband, that her husband is her head in all things, etca pretty big turn off, since i personally believe that god values all beings equally and doesn t discriminate between an [...]
This is a brilliant book about emotional brokenness, mentally and spiritually Meyer s story unearthed similarities in my own life that was hidden by the constant berating by my own birth mother This book makes you think and think deeply I literally reached into my own soul depths that I was unaware of Great book I accidentally checked it out at the library but truth God was speaking to me God bless.
I got this book years ago as a gift with purchase when I bought some of her tapes.I couldn t put it down This book spoke on how to move on from past hurts and how not to be so hard on yourself because of it No favorite chapters here because the entire book was awesome.
I don t know why I seem to be reading so many Joyce Meyer books lately, but as I look back over my reading list for the past few years, I have read quite a few of her books She just has some books that I ve wanted to read I m probably not done reading books by her, but I m not choosing her books necessarily on purpose With that being said, I do always receive a lot of great insight when I read books by Joyce Meyer and BEAUTY FOR ASHES is no different If I could, I would go through and highlight [...]
Very Beautiful encouraging many tears shed thru hard to read b c how I related to the abuse I have suffered I felt I should be feeling jealous in ways that Joyce was so blessed to have been given a 2nd husband a true man of God that actually went thru the many years of her going thru the emotional process of her healing getting to her full potential A TRUE MAN of God marrying her knowing what she had been thru that it was going to be a long difficult road ahead I must applaud him for not having [...]
A helpful book for me because of some people I know with abuse in their past which isn t exactly in the past, as it lingers in their heart and hurts all over again, especially if we are not careful and sensitive to their feelings I don t agree with all Joyce Meyer s theology or, perhaps, methods of recovery, though it has helped her and may, indeed, help others Most of it in this book aligns quite with Scripture, though, I think.The author speaks from experience, which helps me to understand the [...]
Excellent book a quick read but filled with valuable steps that one can take to be healed from past hurts It focuses on those who were abused in some manner, but I think it can probably also apply to those who have experienced harsh trials and have had trouble getting over them.I highly recommend this book to any Christian, as I m sure the vast majority of us have issues in some area that s discussed in the book.
Joyce Meyer is very down to earth relatable I love that she admits her own faults never attempts to be holier than thou Joyce s own personal story is one of true inspiration If you have ever experienced trauma in your life or even great disappointment then this is a book for you I personally needed to read this very slowly to absorb it all.
It is THE best book I ve read in a long time I loved it and plan to share it with anyone who needs uplifting Joyce Meyer had a rough life growing up and she expresses her feelings at the time so well As someone who suffered a similar fate, I can say she knows exactly how I felt and continued to until several months ago Joyce, you are such a Blessing.
The first book I read by Joyce Meyer After giving up on God and thinking I was doomed to hell because of childhood sexual abuse, a friend recommended this book to me I was very skeptical, but as I read it, I felt it was written just for me After reading this book, I began my journey back to God, and healing from the abuse.
This book is just excellent I used this book also in teaching a women s Bible study in my home, and many embarked on a journey to emotional healing Joyce tells her own story of sexual and verbal and emotional abuse at the hands of her father and how God helped her rise from the ashes of her life Very powerful
got this for Christmas from a dear friend this book changed my outlook on life this woman has been through some real hardcore stuff and yet she has moved on I know it s a Christian book but if you could get past the God part this should be a must read for anyone who wants to live a free life with nothing holding them down if she can move past her past I can move past me past.
Like most of my Joyce Meyer books, this is another one that is written in, underlined, commented on and highlighted Its than just a book to be read and put away.you can take it out over and over like a good old friend and peruse all those words of wisdom that come back to you with fresh encouragement Joyce is amazing and this is one of her best.
I am re reading this book again, I am in a place in my personal spiritual life where I have been able to openly HEAR what the author is talking about In the past week I have really had major awakenings in my spirit where I am was able to hear what I needed to do in order to be where I belong on this new level in God
Eh I hate that every single quoted verse is broken down into defining every word Not necessary I had to skip over a lot because this was annoying Other than that, this may be fairly helpful to anyone dealing with issues that cause them private turmoil and wrecked confidence But There is a lot of ego and somewhat unreasonable expectations aimed at the victim, I think.
This is an amazing, biblically sound book, offering healing from scars from one s past In addition this book shares strategies for ongoing forgiveness, healing, and victory in relationships Powerful, life changing for me.
I found it very helpful and informative I felt less alone reading it as I could see from what I read I could relate to a lot of it I found it very affirming and validating of my experiences which is what I needed for my healing.
I went through this book in a life group with my church Was one of the best books I ve read on emotional healing I still refer to it when I m getting the old feelings back from past abuse Highly, highly recommend to anyone who has ever suffered any type of abuse growing up.
I like Joyce as a speaker but do not care for her books The content nature of this book makes it dually hard to get through I did glean some things from it but felt that I got from the Wounded Heart study by Dan Allendar.

this is a very beautiful and encouraging bookz do read this book really encourages you and leads you to jesus.d to believe that he is there for u always and the gift of eternal life he has given us and that we are free nowen
Very encouraging to know that God wants to take my ugly ashes and swap them for His beauty I m still learning how to surrender them to Him but I know that He wants to do that for me becuase He loves me
This book was full of uplifting, tears, and spiritual healing and Joyce Meyer has always struck home to me, and I truly love her approach on every day challenges, topics, and religion.
I am a sucker for any type of self help book I enjoyed this book, found it helpful and plan on reading many joyce meyer books She is very honest and tells it like it is and is easy to relate to I listen to her podcasts daily
