“Dinah covers it all! She beautifully writes from her story which most of us can relate to – brokenness and trauma. We often stay in a place of brokenness and as a result, become bitter and live with a sense of rejection because of that pain. Dinah shares how to walk through that pain with the help of the ultimate Counselor the Holy Spirit by taking up our weapons in the Spirit and fighting the lies that have been spoken over us. By working through our hurt, and knowing who we are in Christ, Dinah shows us how to enter into the peace which God has intended for us all.”
5.0 out of 5 stars – A “God-help” book for the hurting

“Dinah has written a true God-help book for those struggling with past hurts and abuse. With so many self-help books available today, it was truly inspiring to read Dinah’s journey of allowing God to pull her up from the ashes. As she shares the hard work of growing in faith, relying on and listening to the Holy Spirit, and being willing to confront and “mine” her past hurts, gives us all hope and Spirit-filled instruction. Her book would benefit anyone who not only has past hurts to deal with, but also anyone who wants to grow in their faith and relationship with God. It a very hope filled, and ultimately, joy filled book.”
