While she deeply empathizes with the hows and whys of life in the "pit", she continually points listeners to the deliverance that awaits. Deliverance is for everyone, she proclaims - no matter how you got stuck, no matter how long you've been down, whether you think you deserve it or not. And in her straight-talking but loving style, she reminds listeners that deliverance can begin for them this very day.

Yes! This is a book that covers a wide variety of topics in the spiritual life with the wit and encouraging tone that Beth Moore is famous for. Beth's style is that of a friend who has been through difficult times and wants to help you through them by pointing you to God.
I love the way she talks about and encourages prayer. Beth is a prayer warrior who knows how to make others want to talk to God as fearlessly and passionately as she does.
The part where she describes music and its use in the Christian life and the heavenly realm was my favorite.
Be encouraged and be fearless!
Beth Moore is one of my favorite Christian authors because she has such a passion for introducing people to God. She is such a spiritual cheerleader! She is uplifting and joyful in her approach to helping people navigate through life's problems by pointing them to God.
She doesn't water anything down, but she didn't bring me down, either. She focused my attention on how much God loves me and wants to see me succeed - not just in life, but primarily in my relationship with Him.
I will listen to this book again, and I encourage anyone who needs a lift from the pit where life has left them to listen to this book and to be encouraged and fearless.
This is a book that one can listen to over and over again. It is not only imperative to learn how to get OUT of a pit, but how to STAY out. Beth's practical, applicable teachings are perfect for those days when you may feel yourself sliding, or being pushed, or jumping back into that pit.
My "A-HA!" moment came as the author was speaking about things we may inadvertently do to cause us to become mired in the mud of the pit. Things we may not consciously realize we do, but as they accumulate can cause that "slide" down into the mud.
This is my first (but definitely not my last) listen to Beth Moore.
I listened to this audiobook in my car on the way to work, and more than once found myself sitting in the parking lot wishing I didn't have to go in, so I could stay and listen to more. To me, that's a sign of book worth listening to.
Yes, for encouragement.
Everyone suffers, we can chose to stay in the pit or with the help of God get out and live a life full of meaning.
The author doesn't meet the reader where they are (in a pit), she stands at the top of the opening and yells down "God loves you and doesn't want you to be there"....like I didn't already know that.
Entrepreneurship drives my passion - with hundreds of miles to travel each week I love listening to others that have made it happen!
Telling me something other than Jesus will help you if you let him.
No, this book doesn't belong in the self help genre. Author is not depending on self help. She is depending on Jesus to do it instead.
She might as well been standing on a pulpit.
Move this book from self help to religous materials. I can only hope that the money I paid for this audio book gets donated to a church that will do something for its members. At least that way I won't feel that my money was wasted.
