Un-Ashamed by Heather Davis Nelson {Book Review & Giveaway!}

About the book Unashamed: Healing Our Brokenness and Finding Freedom from Shame offers hope to those struggling under the burden of shame. This book shines the life-giving light of the gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, directing our attention to the God who promises to forgive and restore us—no matter what.

Have I been broken? Many times over again. I believe it is how we see growth in our character as Christians. 

Personally, I wouldn't think of myself struggling with "shame".  I see Jesus through the cross healing me completely. I even passed on doing this review until a week later. I realized after I was frustrated by a current sin, maybe it would be good book for me to read. It was. 

Shame comes in many forms in our life and the enemy uses it to his advantage. You will be surprised how often you let it ruin your focus and God given purpose in life.

Heather does not present this topic unstudied. She obviously has put her full heart into writing this book. I love that is not full of fluff. I say that nicely, if I can. I have a hard time with writers who are afraid they may offend their readers or want to connect in a mushy way. Heather spells it out scripturally with each chapter and draws her readers to Jesus. I can honestly say it has helped me grow in my walk with Christ.

These are just a few of the topics mentioned in her book.

Take a quick moment to ponder how shame or condemnation rule in your life through:
  • Social Shame
  • Your Body
  • Performance
  • Your Marriage
  • Parenting
Oh, how we should not be ignorant of the enemy's devices! Read this book. Keep it by your bed. Pick it up often and let God heal and speak to you.
