..Okay, as cheesy as the title and premise sound...this was an awesome book. I loved it! I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, but there it is. Well-written, succinct and extremely enjoyable.

“There’s a vital truth to be learned from the fall of Anakin Skywalker. It’s simply this: You were not fashioned to live in fear. That’s why worry and stress cause such chaos in your life. Your Creator crafted your soul to flourish in faith, not to drown in fear.” 1 likes
“The shadow is our unconscious self, all the parts of ourselves that we refuse to acknowledge or are shamed by. The more we try to flee from or ignore the shadow, the more it grows and the more power it gains over us. To master the shadow, we need to stop running, turn, and face it.2 JODY G. BOWER” 1 likes
