Can a woman who has been deeply hurt by life's circumstances be healed, heart and soul? If she has been wounded by a man she loved and trusted, can she love and trust again? As a woman who endured years of abuse, abandonment, and betrayal by those closest to her, Joyce Meyer can answer with a resounding "yes!"
Meyer's positivity comes from living her own journey, and from seeing so many women who don't believe they can fully overcome their pain--or even know where to begin--find the guidance they need in the life-changing wisdom of the Bible.
Meyer's bestseller Beauty for Ashes told of her personal story of healing. Now, with the passage of more time, HEALING THE SOUL OF A WOMAN delves deeper into Joyce's story and the journey of healing for all women. Each chapter guides you through whatever obstacles may be holding you back to find your true destiny as God's beloved. God can heal all pain, and He wants to do this in you. Let HEALING THE SOUL OF A WOMAN be the first step toward the wonderful, joyful future God intends for you.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
One of the things I truly appreciate about Joyce Meyer is how she combines God's Word with her down-to-earth writing. In Healing the Soul of a Woman, she shares her story, the story of others who have faced challenges, and Scripture to help the reader grow in their own healing from God. Healing the Soul of a Woman guides the reader through healing from past wound and memories. Meyer shares her story in the beginning of the book and refers to her own healing steps throughout the book. She also shares a lot of solid Biblical advice for healing and how to become a healthy, whole person in Christ. In the back of the book, she has two appendixes: The first gives a lot of information on women's rights and treatment and abuse around the world. The Second appendix, Who you are in Christ Jesus, gives statements to read and review from Scripture as you seek to change your thinking into someone who has been healed and redeemed through Christ. At the back of the book, there is an interactive journal. On each page, Meyer starts with a Bible verse and then asks questions to help with healing. I wish I had had Healing the Soul of a Woman when I was going through counseling many years ago and healing from some pain that I had gone through. This book would be a good tool to help with a Christian woman's healing. I especially liked the interactive journal in the back. This book seemed to be comprehensive and easy to relate to for me. I especially liked the chapter titled, "You are God's Beloved." Even though I have been a Christian for many years, I have at times struggled to see how I am God's Beloved. This one touched me where I needed it the most. Meyer shares from her heart, from Scripture and encourages readers to find healing of their own. I highly recommend it to any Christian woman searching for healing in her own life.
