Do you desire a life of freedom? One without mental ties to hold you back? In Set Free to Live Free: Breaking Through the 7 Lies Women Tell Themselves, Saundra Dalton-Smith shares seven lies women believe and offers Bible-based truths to replace them. They are:

1. Lie:   Perfection is the goal.
Truth: I am perfectly imperfect.

2. Lie:   I would be happy too if I had her life.
Truth: I am too unique for comparisons.

3. Lie:   If I do this, I can look like that.
Truth: My body, my temple, God’s choice.

4. Lie:   Life is an all-or-none-activity.
Truth: My balanced life requires addition and subtraction.

5. Lie:   Being in control is better than spontaneity.
Truth: Spontaneity is God’s opportunity to surprise me.

6. Lie:   Emotional imbalance is only for crazy women.
Truth: My transparency opens the door for soul connections.

7. Lie:   Everything comes with conditions.
Truth: My only limitations are the ties I allow to bind me.

Using real-life examples and God’s Word, this guidebook covers each topic in depth. It’s not a book to skim through as a quick read. Rather, it’s one to digest slowly, pray over, and apply with God’s help. The author writes, “Stretch your arms wide as you take your hands off the steering wheel of your life. Allow God to have full control of your journey. Trust him to guide you to the best destinations.”
