under Secret Stories, Written on February 12, 2011

I started reading in the evening, intending to finish a chapter before bed. About 90 pages later and well after midnight, I finally was able to put it down until the next morning.

My church had a workshop on building your image on the person God made you to be, and it has been on my mind ever since. This is a blessed continuation of the journey, and I think God knew I needed a push to keep going. (OK, I don’t THINK He knew, I KNOW He knew.)

The author’s experiences are so real to those of us who, if we haven’t physically cut ourselves, have cut ourselves down to fit into labels others have given us. And we thought the labels should fit because the people who give us the labels have to know us better than we know ourselves. I felt as if Kary Oberbrunner was talking directly to me.
