Today, I am reviewing the book "HEALING IS A CHOICE: Ten Decisions That Will Transform Your Life & Ten Lies That Can Prevent You From Making Them" by Steve Arterburn. I first heard of him while attending the Women of Faith event in Atlanta. He was very transparent in speaking of his personal struggles and presented helpful information for me in my own struggle at the time. I was very excited to have the opportunity to read this new edition of his book.
Everyone needs healing at some point in their lives. Be it physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually we will need to experience healing. This book teaches us that healing is in God's hands and in order to experience that, we must make the choice of wanting to heal and then present it to God.
This book is a blessing. It is so easy to hold on to hurt and prevent yourself from getting your healing. The book is presented by asking the reader IF they want to be healed. It then takes them through a series of ten choices they must make in order to get on the path to healing. The great thing about this book is that Arterburn realized that it's much easier to say you want to be healed than it is to work through the hurt, which is why the inclusion of the workbook was such a great idea. Though the healing will not be completed just by reading this book, it gets you on the path to healing in your life.
