A while back, I received a tweet from PR by the Book looking for folks to read Steve Arterburn's new book, Walking into Walls.

Well, it just so happens, the forehead of my heart is pretty beat up from walking into so many walls over the course of my adult life.

So I replied to the tweet and asked for a review copy of the book.

The book was sent to me with no strings attached. They just asked that I write a review if the book resonated with me in any way.

So, here I am with my copy of Walking into the Walls: 5 Blind Spots that Block God's Work in You sitting beside me, bleeding with pink highlighter. It resonated alright.

Walking into Walls (Worthy Publishing, August 2011), identifies the five "blind spots" that cause us to make poor choices: stubborn resistance, self-centered entitlement, justifiable resentment, blind ignorance, and disconnected isolation.

Steve Arterburn doesn't just inform readers about the walls, he shares practical guidance on how to stop banging our heads against them.

Through his work with New Life Ministries, Arterburn encounters men and women who desperately want to be healed from their hurts and hang-ups but keep repeating the same toxic patterns over and over...walking into walls, if you will.

My initial response to Steve's introductory statement was a mixture of skepticism and hope.

Even if you were living in the worst possible abusive situation or the most neglectful and disconnected relationship, you may have built a wall that keeps you stuck in a dark place where you don't have to stay. Once you take responsibility, you will find new hope and insight as you get your life unstuck and move past your wall.

I am a licensed professional counselor and I was listening to the New Life radio show and heard Stephen Arterburn discuss this book. I made a mental note to call to get the book and when I walked to my office my first client gave me a copy of Walking into Walls after having already read it. What a confirmation that I was to read this book!! Within a day I finished it marking several sections that spoke to my life. Especially the wall of justifiable resentment. Oh, do I have justifiable resentment but I began to realize the stumbling block this has become in my life. I saw my life in a new and fresh way through this book. With a built in study guide and an easy to read format this book would be great for a Bible study or for an individual. So if you want to take your walk with God to the next level this book is just the tool needed.

How many times have you said to yourself , I am not the one with the problem, my wife is or my husband is, I can handle this on my own, I deserve to be treated better than this. How many walls do you have standing between you and that person you think has the problem or the one that treated you unfair.

These walls stop us from having relationships, happiness and most of all keep us from doing the work that God has planned for us and to live a joyful life. We all need healing and break down the walls and make sure they are not erected again to block our way. We build our own walls even though we do not realize it at the time and we need to learn to deal with our wall and tear it or remain in misery . When one sees reality from a new perspective you are liberated to live with less pain and conflict in your life.

The five walls that the author has the reader dealing with are the Walls of , Stubborn Resistance, Arrogant Entitlement, Justifiable Resentment, Disconnected Isolation and the wall of Blind Ignorance. Can you picture yourself hiding behind one of these walls? I know I have seen myself in some of this book.

With an excellent study guide at the end of this book, I highly recommend this book and if you are like me have a pen, paper and marker handy as you will be using them. If you are familiar with the Women of Faith books Stephen Afterburner was the originator of this successful women's conference started in 1966.

I didn't know what to first expect, when I started reading, "Walking into Walls:5 Blind Spots that Block God's Work in You".

Was it self-help?

Is it a motivational?

What blind spots are we even talking about, but as I begun to read through Stephen Arterburn's book, I was impressed by, not just the style of writing, which was very laid back and conversational (always a good thing), but although this, like any book, is never a substitute for actual, face to face therapy, that is beneficial to work through whatever is on one's heart, "Walking into Walls:5 Blind Spots that Block God's Work in You", really helps begin the first steps toward identifying the walls, that we can put up in our lives, that not only hinder a productive, healthy living and relationships in our lives, but can also hinder our walk with God.

Now, does any of this sound like part of us, or all of us:
1. Stubborn resistance, and/or
2. Arrogant entitlement, and/or
3. Justifiable resentment, and/or
4. Disconnected isolation, and/or
5, Blind ignorance.

Maybe.....maybe not.

"Walking into Walls:5 Blind Spots that Block God's Work in You" isn't a book that is either condemning or difficult.

The reality is that , we all have, currently or may experience at some point in our lives,one or all of these blind spots and what Stephen Arterburn, does, is with gentle guidance, encouraging anecdotes that help us see how these "walls" can blind us without knowing and even understanding through Scripture, really helps the reader, no matter how small or big the circumstances in their lives, deal with these walls, that we put up in our lives.
