I purchased this book at least four months ago, but I never took the time to open it and really dive in. After a massive wake up call a few weeks ago, with my life spiraling out of control, I decided it was time to pick it up again, and I’m extremely grateful I did! Wow, Priscilla writes exactly what I’m thinking and precisely what I need to hear. The enemy is against you, and it’s not who you think it is.
New York Times bestselling author Priscilla Shirer, widely known for her international speaking, teaching, and writing ministries, brings her new role from the 2015 film War Room into the real lives of today’s women, addressing the topics that affect them most: renewing their passion, refocusing their identity, negotiating family strife, dealing with relentless regrets, navigating impossible schedules, succeeding against temptation, weathering their worst fears, uprooting bitterness, and more.
