Through scripture-based guidance and sharing her own stories of life struggles that are beyond comprehension, Jan guides you to positive, long-lasting change. You will discover that wherever you are emotionally—in one of life’s dumpsters—or just getting by—God has greater plans for your life if you are willing to go deeper into His presence and honestly view how your own thought patterns and choices are impacting your life and future. Jan is a woman of substance who cares too much to let people just blame their past for the future. Her questions, exercises, and tips throughout the book will rock your world and leave you with a hunger for Christ and the life He desires for you."
