In my spirit I knew I was denying the fullness of God's grace. I was having difficulty overcoming certain strongholds in my life, but this book helped me to take a real look at my way of doing things and helped me to focus on areas where God was leading me differently. It isn't God's will that the enemy keep us tied in such bondage.
One point that Joyce made that stays strong in my heart, 'for all the wrongs that people have done to you, No One BUT GOD can 'repay' you.' That person may truly be sorry, but NOTHING they can say or do will EVER make up for the injustice you suffered at their hand(s). And in the same respect, you can't make it up to someone that you have treated unjustly, either. Recompense (payback to both you and them) must come from God.
I enjoyed this book very much. It is a must have for my book collection! I'm sure you will feel the same way, too!

This is Meyer's Magnum Opus. It is one of the few books on Abuse on the market that actually focuses on a solution rather than the problem. I recommend this book highly to anyone who has suffered from systematic child abuse.

It amazes me that Joyce Meyers has used her horrible experiences to help others. She is an awesome testimony as to how God can use the bad things in your life for good.
This book taught me so much about, first of all, how to use the Bible. I will never read the Bible the same again, the Bible is now a tool I use to live my life. Secondly, she taught me how to get past my past.
I have bought this book for 2 friends! I highly recommend this book. Thank you Joyce and thank you God!!!!!

I was given this book and NIGHTMARES ECHO by Katlyn Stewart. I was a child of abuse, sexual abuse. The two books helped me to not only see what others like myself had lived through but how to learn to heal from the past and let go of the pain. This book will help anyone dealing with a haunting past to find thier way home again. I applaud this author

Joyce offers her honest to goodness view of life's various challenges, both big and little, and how they can be overcome if you follow the word of God. She explains how our own thinking can hurt us or help us - depending on our attitudes. Addressing such things as abuse, anger, shame, guilt, depression, heartbreak, road rage, addiction, people pleasing, and many other unpleasant influences and behaviors, she has helped me find the light in life and my burden is lighter now. Trusting in God is something Joyce has helped me to do on a daily basis which has helped me get through some really dark days. I'm getting my life back on track and am headed in the right direction, thanks to Joyce's wording and straight forward language. She tells it like it is.

i worried this would only be about religion & how you just have to forgive & forget. Not so. Joyce's book is much, much more than i imagined. Very helpful in understanding and coming to a place of healing. reminds one of the continuing process & not to give up.

Format: Paperback
"Beauty for Ashes" is a moving testimony to the power of faith. Unlike most self-help books, the author is not a psychiatrist. Everything she discusses is from personal experience. Meyer - a sexual abuse survivor - relates the emotional healing God bestows upon her, and the lessons she learns as a result. She outlines specific problems and shows how God will solve them if you work with Him. There are also Bible verses that support her inspirational message. The book is an easy read, and is not preachy or patronizing. Abuse survivors of any kind will benefit from reading this book.
