Overview

Young men and women who have fallen away and then rediscovered the love of Christ speak of God's forgiveness and healing abilities in these stories of modern-day prodigals. Some follow a path much like Jesus' parable, turning their backs on family and faith in exchange for money and power. Some slip into a more subtle slide away from faith, allowing doubt or apathy to pull them away from who they are. Some make huge mistakes and are forced to pay painful penalties.
Yet each story has the positive ending of a life saved by Jesus Christ. Each story offers hope of renewal and restoration. Written for all those who fear that God can't or won't forgive them for what they did, LOVED is a book of hope.

Editorial Reviews

Melody Carlson
I totally LOVE this book. These true stories—of young women who are sold out to God and willing to take on whatever He calls them to—just blew me away. Besides actually making me cry, it also challenged me to look more deeply into my own life and calling. I seriously recommend this book to anyone who truly wants to serve God. Really, Sister Freaks is awesome!

Loved this book. Full of stories of forgivenesd and redemption. Many women openly discussed their past failures and pain and how they found healing and grace in God. This book came at a great time in my life as I have recently gone through a dry spell spiritually and consequently became involved in a destructuve relationship that lead to sin in my life. The book helped me again experience the grace and forgiveness of God, work through my guilt and shame, and reminded me that He loves me reguardless of my past failures. How awesome is He! It also reminded me that we can share our struggles and pain and the grace we've received and encourage others who may be going through the same thing. Loved this book and the lessons it taught. Highly recommended! Thank You, Jesus, for being faithful and ALWAYS loving us!!!
