MY REVIEW:

I requested to review this book because after reading other books by Susie I have come to appreciate and respect her writing. So while I didn't really know what the book was about until I began reading it, I walked away overwhelmed once again by God's amazing love and grace in our lives.

Embracing Your Freedom walks you down a path of getting a better understanding for God's heart for justice and how we can experience His gift of freedom no matter what our circumstances are. I really li

I think if you want to know how you can help others and feel a little bit incapable of it, this will encourage you greatly and will let you know that no matter what hardships you have had, you can overcome them and help others as well.

I had this on my to-read list when I didn't really know how I could help much but now I am involved in organizations such as Justice-network.org. I really only read this thinking it would talk more about the work of IJM through a woman's perspective, though there w

One of my all time favorite books. I've read it twice, used the prayers at the end of each chapter in my prayer time and I want to read it again and do a Bible study with the gals!

“Imagine yourself in Harriet Tubman's shoes. Fighting to be freed from deplorable conditions. Placing one foot in front of the other, putting slavery behind you. If a petite, abused slave can rise up, fight for freedom, secure the freedom of others, and change her world, so can I. And so can you.” 6 likes
“Our witness is only as strong as our freedom is real. We can have the most noble convictions in the world, but if we are snarky and impatient when we don't get our way, those things will interfere with our influence. If we gossip more than we pray, those misspoken words will demolish our influence. If our addictions get in the way of living out our convictions, we'll have mostly a negative influence.” 5 likes
