We can havegreat theology but still be powerless because of deception about the key issues of life.Many of these self-defeating mindsets exist in our subconscious and have never beenidentified. This book exposes numerous falsehoods and reveals truth that makes usfree. Get ready for a joy-infused adventure into hope-filled living.

    I think my fav question is what advice I would give a friend in the same situation. The thing I’m going to apply is taking time to actually acknowledge the emotion of feeling discouraged and then employing a question or two from here. Very helpful!

    This is my second time listening to this lesson and I answered the questions. I wrote the questions out by hand, for me this helps trigger my brain!. The questions that spoke to me specifically was number 2 Am I highly visionary?- sometimes I am afraid to dream because I don’t want to be disappointed. Question 7 what are the lies fueling this discouragement? With Russ’ (my husband) diagnosis of dementia I felt the dream balloon deflate. The lie I have been telling myself is the dream we had is impossible. This is not true because he is doing well and does especially well when doing a project. We are both feeling the tug to go back into “ministry”, serving some place outside of our community. I have reclaimed this dream for us.
    Again, thank you!
