RUN THE RACE WITH FREEDOM. The Christian life is supposed to be like a race-a race we run freely, unhindered by the burdens of this life. But often, the baggage we carry holds us back. It deprives us of our freedom in Christ and makes the race seem strenuous and futile. If you ever feel that you're not making progress, lacking joy, or being weighed down by your Christian life-in spite of all you're doing to grow and serve-Becoming a Woman of Freedom will give you a second wind. No matter what your age, circumstance, or spiritual maturity, Cynthia Heald will help you identify and lay aside the burdens that can make you feel "stuck," including past hurt and loss, poor self-image, approval-seeking, busyness, doubt and fear, and unhealthy influences. "The goal of this study," writes Cynthia Heald, "is to help and encourage you through the Word, through the thoughts of those who have run the race ahead of you, and through your own reflections on the race you are running. "With challenging insights and thought-provoking quotations from classic thinkers and writers, Becoming a Woman of Freedom will put you on the road to freedom-and help you develop the actions and attitudes you'll need to finish the race with strength.
