Geri Scazzero knew there was something desperately wrong with her life. She felt like a single parent raising her four young daughters alone. She finally told her husband, "I quit", and left the thriving church he pastored, beginning a journey that transformed her and her marriage for the better.
In this audiobook Geri provides you a way out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. This study is for every woman who thinks, I can't keep pretending everything is fine!
The journey to emotional health begins by quitting. Geri quit being afraid of what others think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else's life. When you quit those things that are damaging to your soul or the souls of others, you are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life.
When you quit for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way, you're on the path not only to emotional health but also to the true purpose of your life.
I absolutely loved this audio book. I honestly did not want to reach the end - I yearned to go from chapter to chapter and learn more and more about being an emotionally healthy woman. I was actually shocked when it got finished but a good listen it was. I really enjoyed listening to the book on my way to and from work - it had a calming effect on me. My most favourite part was when Geri talked about John 8:31-32. From the time I read that I have been telling the truth more and more and it is true that the truth will set you free but it will first make you miserable - honesty, I feel, is something people shy away from out of fear of negative outcomes but once the truth is out, the freedom is inexplicable. Charity narrated the book quite well and I must commend her for having the ability to vary the voices and also match the tone of each situation. Overall, this has been a truly eye-opening audio book and I would recommend it to anyone who seeks a greater level of emotional well-being and a greater appreciation of their God-given right to live a joyful life.
gave me helpful ideas to change my life for the better. the authors own experience gives powerful examples to back up her 8 points to emotional health.
This book was recommended by the First Lady at my church and it was just what I needed. This book help me to understand my thoughts & feelings as a wife/mother and to not feel guilty about them. Awesome book for any woman on their spiritual journey.

I have both the audio and kindle version of this book. I tried to listen to the audio version while driving or cleaning house. Within two days I was ticked off, angry, and snapish. The sample is mild compared to some of the heated emotional parts. There are parts where she out and out yells the narrative in anger, startling and affecting me emotionally. I will stick with reading the kindle version instead.
Amazing, encouraging, freeing from sin to turn to the cross! I'd recommend it to everyone.
excellent book, packed with information, easy to follow. Enjoyed it very much. Would recommend highly.
I thought it good just a little long and I mostly just wanted the points from. the book instead of all of her story but it all came together.
I read this book during a very low point in my life. This book has taught me to live my life instead of worrying about what others think.
This book gave me a different perspective on many misconceptions. I look forward to the transformation that will be birth inside of me as a result if this book.
For women who are living an imbalanced spiritual life and need direction on how to make changes
the first chapters are raw footage of the marriage and church building struggles of a pastor and his wife. I was uncomfortable with the rampant complaints of such an unsteady unhealthy marriage and am sad they had no support in launching their church. I would have liked to hear from the husband more in admitting his faults of neglecting his family rather than the author railing against him so frequently. Their unfortunate events of church planting are a prime example of why such a task should not be done singlehandedly or by just a couple, and that married individuals need to focus on getting their relationship right before trying to lead others. thankfully there is resolve and many lessons learned that she shares in the end. there are better role models and books out there if you are looking to learn about healthy biblical submission within a marriage, but she is accurate in the way we must take a stand for our values in a respectful loving way. That's just my quick two cents on the story line. As for the content for personal application I'm excited to do the workbook and dig into the heart matters addressed in the latter chapters. I have a lot to discover about myself and better ways of confronting and loving others.
