Dare to Unlock the Door: A Journey to Freedom and Wholeness
You’ve come through a lot and you have taught yourself how to smile. You have learned how to push through the pain and cope with the trauma of your past. It was all so long ago, now you’re grown and doing well. Still, every now and then there is a nagging in your soul that pulls you to a place of deep sadness, where feelings of aloneness and inferiority seem to surface. We all have a closet where we pack the stuff we do not want the world to see. A place we do not want to remember exists and would much rather forget. However, the mask you wear does not always protect you from the invisible wounds that still ooze when you are alone, even years later. I see you and I hear you.
The good news is there is hope!
You do not have to hide anymore. You can be free. You can be released. You can be whole!
The journey to true freedom and wholeness is a process and takes courage. But I promise you, my friend, it is worth the journey to living your best life to the fullest potential.
Dare to Unlock the Door shares such a journey and was written to help others who have found themselves hindered by the secrets of their past. Stunted in their life’s journey without even knowing why they seem to be going around in circles. Written with brutal honesty and clarity you will be encouraged to begin your own journey to freedom and wholeness. Included are provoking food for thought readings along with prayer meditations intended to help guide you on your own journey. This book is for all, especially those who desire to be finally free, finally whole!
