Book Review – Set Free to Live Free

Set Free to Live Free

by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith

Book Blurb:

Imagine life with unlimited possibility, where fear, misconceptions, and insecurities don’t have the power to rob us of our potential or our dreams. In Set Free to Live Free, Saundra Dalton-Smith shows women how to break free from seven mental ties that hold them back, including striving for perfection, comparing themselves to others, all-or-nothing attitudes, and more. Through case studies and inspirational writing, she encourages women to embrace spontaneity, be transparent, nurture their bodies, and cultivate a balanced life.

My Thoughts

In today’s day and age, a time of extreme busyness, lots of chances to be overwhelmed and anxious exist, all around us.
This book is a breath of fresh air. The author addresses seven different lies that women are likely to buy into. First, there’s a story to illustrate the lie. Then there is truth and scripture verses to contradict it, and to show us how we can overcome, live above it, and rest in Jesus.

One of these lies is the belief that we must strive for perfection. God never intended us to be perfect, or to hold up a specific level of perfection that we should attain to. No, He wants us to strive for excellence. Not in comparing our own abilities to that of others, because each of us is uniquely created. He wants each of us…He wants ME to strive for excellence that I can reach. And I can do this through His help.
Filled with hope and encouragement, this book is one that could be helpful for any Christian woman to read. Especially if you are needing encouragement and a fresh outlook in life.

I found this book to be helpful and relevant in my own life. I want to take to heart the truths that I learned as I read, and hope to continue growing in my Christian walk, to become more Christlike.
