A Journey to Discovering Identity and Purpose

Upcoming Release on June 14, 2019

So often, the problems or lack of feeling truly fulfilled in one's life stem from trauma that occurred at some point during childhood. This trauma could be anything from rejection, abandonment, sexual abuse and molestation to name a few. Hurts and trauma lead to the root issue of a lost sense of identity. A persons original God given and purposed identity was perverted due to the trauma experienced.  It is time to reclaim that identity in Christ! As a reminder of who you are, here is what the Bible says:

 In Genesis 1:26 (AMP) it declares that God said, ”Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness{not physical, but spiritual personality and moral likeness];and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.”

Throughout the pages of this book the author takes you on a journey of her experiences interspersed with the reality of who/what God has called and named you to be. the author has included  journal space and prayers in which to help work through reclaiming your identity.

Welcome to the journey to discover for the first time your identity for some, and the journey of rediscovery for others.

Buckle your seatbelt, this may be a bumpy but well worth it ride.
