FAITH NEWS SERVICE – United States—Friday, March 31, 2023
Athena Dean Holtz (with Inger Logelin), author of Full Circle: Coming Home to the Faithfulness of God, is releasing her revised and expanded memoir for free download through tomorrow (April 1, 2023). This true account of turning from extreme deception and new age to Jesus explores the depths of healing from your past and finding restoration through the faithfulness of God.
Holtz’s journey began when her desire for affirmation and significance led her into deception and spiritual abuse in a toxic “Christian” cult. This caused her to lose all she owned, her thriving publishing company, and her reputation. She was left with nothing but the love of God to see her through.
In Full Circle, Holtz shares a candid memoir of loss and restoration, love lost and found. She reflects on how she was able to turn away from the darkness that had threatened to consume her life. “The faithfulness of God took first place in my heart,” says Holtz. “I want others who have been traumatized by their own experiences or those who are seeking freedom from their pasts to know that there is hope in Him alone.”
Through her book, Holtz encourages readers who have experienced similar trauma or are looking for answers in their own lives. She wants them to find solace in knowing they can always rely on the faithfulness of God even when everything else has failed them. Questions have been added to each chapter for personal reflection or small group study, to help readers engage.
This book will be available for free download through April 1, 2023. Download Full Circle: Coming Home To The Faithfulness Of God today and take part in Athena Dean Holtz’s inspiring story about loss, hope and the ultimate redemption! Full Circle is rated 4.9 out of 5 stars by those who have purchased the book. Here’s what some of the reviewers have said:

5 stars – A redemption story you will not want to set down.
“With pure authenticity, Athena shares her journey from traumatic childhood, failed marriage, family pain, cult involvement, and then God’s redemption through it all. Powerful reminder of God’s love for us, including the fact that regardless of our circumstances, He will not let us go.”
