"Once upon a time...the raging dragon...a hero and a damsel in distress... Remember the old fairy tales? Prince Charming and Sleeping Beauty and happily ever after? It was always that way inour bedtime stories, but what about real life?

Are you overwhelmed, in despair, heartsick, or in danger? Not sure which way to turn? Whom to trust? What to do?

In this highly creative approach, Wilbee combines women from the Bible with characters in well-known stories like The Wizard of Oz, Winnie the Pooh, and Jane Eyre to help women in conflict and pain understand five powerful choices they have to tame their dragons.

Orphan: In crisis, Dorothy of Oz and Esther of old learn to ask for help—and find self-reliance.

Pilgrim: Scarecrow and Hagar flee ineffective and/or hurtful expectations to seek clarity and new direction.

Martyr: Tinman and Ruth sacrifice from a position of power in order
to redeem—not from powerless subservience to someone else's agenda.

Warrior: Lion and Deborah fight to save those they love, careful lest they become like the dragons they slay.

Wizard: Wizard and Abigail name Truth, then work creative alternatives to transform evil ... though they must first name their own."
