Geri Scazzero knew there was something desperately wrong with her life. She felt like a single parent raising her four young daughters alone. She finally told her husband, "I quit", and left the thriving church he pastored, beginning a journey that transformed her and her marriage for the better.
In this audiobook Geri provides you a way out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. This study is for every woman who thinks, I can't keep pretending everything is fine!
The journey to emotional health begins by quitting. Geri quit being afraid of what others think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else's life. When you quit those things that are damaging to your soul or the souls of others, you are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life.
When you quit for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way, you're on the path not only to emotional health but also to the true purpose of your life.

It you don't like...change it!
This book was recommended by the First Lady at my church and it was just what I needed. This book help me to understand my thoughts & feelings as a wife/mother and to not feel guilty about them. Awesome book for any woman on their spiritual journey.
Well written with great illustrations. I think most woman will relate. This book has motivated me to start seriously thinking about my first move toward much needed and long overdue change.
I read this book during a very low point in my life. This book has taught me to live my life instead of worrying about what others think.
the first chapters are raw footage of the marriage and church building struggles of a pastor and his wife. I was uncomfortable with the rampant complaints of such an unsteady unhealthy marriage and am sad they had no support in launching their church. I would have liked to hear from the husband more in admitting his faults of neglecting his family rather than the author railing against him so frequently. Their unfortunate events of church planting are a prime example of why such a task should not be done singlehandedly or by just a couple, and that married individuals need to focus on getting their relationship right before trying to lead others. thankfully there is resolve and many lessons learned that she shares in the end. there are better role models and books out there if you are looking to learn about healthy biblical submission within a marriage, but she is accurate in the way we must take a stand for our values in a respectful loving way. That's just my quick two cents on the story line. As for the content for personal application I'm excited to do the workbook and dig into the heart matters addressed in the latter chapters. I have a lot to discover about myself and better ways of confronting and loving others.
"challenging and thought provoking"
gave me helpful ideas to change my life for the better. the authors own experience gives powerful examples to back up her 8 points to emotional health.
