Giveaway! Breaking the Barriers by Jason Frenn

Overcoming Adversity and Reaching Your Greatest Potential

In a world filled with dysfunction, futility, and confusion, people are looking for meaning and significance. They want to break through the barriers holding them back.

BREAKING THE BARRIERS offers three foundational pillars to equip readers for overcoming the most difficult obstacles in their lives. These three pillars teach readers how to:
-Take on the character of God the Father
-Take on the wisdom of the Son
-Take on the discipline of the Spirit.

Through dynamic stories of people who have overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, and the powerful example of the author who has overcome great adversity in his own life, this book shows readers that God is on their side and desires for them to fulfill the dreams and purposes he has placed in their hearts.


My Review:
This easy-to-read book will help anyone find inspiration and help when overcoming adversities of life. Using the Bible as the foundation, and drawing truths found in his own learned life lessons as well as those of others, the author shares a step-by-step guide to becoming all we are destined to be. Each chapter ends with a specific prayer meant to assist the reader.

The book can be read cover to cover or a chapter at a time which makes it ideal for group studies.

The author quotes his friend, "Pride is like bad breath; everyone knows you have it except you."

This looks like a great book. I started to review it but for some reason went on to something else. I hope you get many, not a lot, but many that want it. If for some reason you do not, I will always be happy to read it. CCDitmore(at)cox(Dot)net

Sally... I think everyone either needs an inspirational book like this, or has someone in their life that does. Count me in the giveaway, but if I don't win... I'm off to the bookstore (okay, well really on line bookstore) to buy... maybe I'll but a couple of copies anyway...

and how great was it that the author dropped by with a thank you! now that's a blessing in itself!

hugs to you dear lady. Dixie
