Editorial Reviews

Review

As if she's sitting right across from you chatting over hot tea {or coffee}, and with courageous, soul-baring honesty, Jo Ann shares her story and the faith that ultimately mended her soul. Whether you need restoration or you are looking for a way to help others, Jo Ann gives you the resources to come away renewed. Encouraged. Inspired. --Nicole Notare, Editor, Guideposts Magazine

Jo Ann offers an honest, soul-deep exploration of the survivor in each of us. Based on faith and Biblical lessons, this tightly-sculpted narrative will soothe scars and heal hearts of even the most broken spirits. This guide helps readers peel back our protective layers to remind us all that we are loved, that our lives have great purpose, and that the only path to freedom is through forgiveness and truth. --Julie Cantrell, New York Times and award-winning author of Into the Free and When Mountains Move

When a Woman Finds Her Voice is such an important book for anyone who wants to mine the past, heal like crazy, and find joy today. Jo Ann Fore takes readers gently on a journey of discovery as she shares her own healing path with breathtaking authenticity. If you've wanted to live free from a painful past, pick up this book. --Mary DeMuth, author of The Wall Around Your Heart

From the Inside Flap

What happens when brokenness stains our spirits, when the hurts of life linger?

Secret or unresolved hurts leak into our everyday lives, filtering into everything we think we know about who we are. We tend to question our value and meaning. We feel unimportant, incapable, "less-than" or "not good enough."

So we put on our false faces, the "life-is-just-fine" masks, while we bury ourselves in family, career, and service to others. And we fall silent. But that's not God's plan.

In "When A Woman Finds Her Voice," author Jo Ann Fore engages your heart and mind as one who knows your fears and frustrations. As a certified life coach, she unpacks a message of hope and freedom with a gentle boldness that can only come from one who has walked the journey.

With straight talk, insightful biblical truths, and heart-aching stories of hope, Jo Ann leads you on the unparalleled adventure of finding your voice and using it to make a difference. Jo Ann helps you find healing, then leads you to help others do the same. You will learn how to overcome life's hurts. You will be moved to share the stories you've been hesitant to share those healing stories that have the power to change both your life and the lives of others.

Reading Jo Ann Fore's story, journeying through her pain and her own path to healing (and countless other women whom have shared their paths through this book) has helped me understand my pain, helped me see my need to totally and completely trust and put my faith in God, helped me to finally have the courage (and listen to God's prompting) to start writing my own story and helped me realize I can finally heal and be free. This book offers creative ways to aide in sharing your story or healing from your story in a way that connects you with God and helps you to un-silence your voice. I am so blessed to finally have the tools to help me break free and make my voice heard.

~ Whether it is private, public, person to person..., sharing your past in a Christ centered way, brings healing, period. There is nothing from your past, present, or even future, to be ashamed of.

Bottom line? Buy this book, you will NOT be disappointed.

This book speaks straight to the heart of any woman that has ever been wounded, hurt, violated or in pain. But more importantly, it speaks to every woman's heart with a 'voice' of compassion and authenticity that leads you to the Throne of grace and healing. I found myself crying, sighing, praying, reflecting and releasing as I read Jo Ann's story and those of my courageous sisters. And with each chapter, I found Grace-threads of my own story and voice woven in there too. This is not a quick read at all, it is an invitation to a healing journey. This is a "sit-down, quiet-down and let your Heavenly Father pour forth His Balm in those areas you're trying to keep stuffed" kind of journey. It will challenge you, but as you bravely rise up to the challenge, you will most definitely have 'found your voice'.

I highly recommend this book not only for yourself but for your small group, women's group and healing ministries alike.
Buy it. You'll be glad you did.

I had a love/hate relationship in reading this book. Hate because it brought up so much hurt, I had buried. Love because it taught me to face these hurts, in the knowledge, a loving God had my back. Chapter after chapter, as I read Jo Ann's and the other women's stories, I was inspired by the courage it took for these women to share. In this book were questions, I needed to answer. And in answering these question, I start to heal and find my own voice.
I highly recommend this book to hurting women everywhere, believe me it's worth the journey.

Jo Ann and the women who contributed to this book have shown a huge part of their hearts, and in doing so they let us, the readers, find out how they found their voices. In that process I have also found strength for my own voice. This is NOT a quick read. This is a book that you should get if you want to find your voice, make your voice stronger and most importantly understand that God NEVER wanted you to be silent in the first place! Get a journal, get a new pen and be prepared for some heart work. It is worth it. So worth it.

Jo Ann Fore's debut release is a refreshing addition to the books of hope that line booksellers' shelves. Using poignant stories, biblical insights, powerful prayers, and probing questions, Jo Ann guides us to examine our pain in the light of God's truths, leads us to address our fears head on, and funnels us to the path of freedom. She candidly and transparently addresses the real issues of silence and isolation that keeps us walled up in our deep pain.

When A Woman Finds Her Voice is a life-transforming tool for those of us with deep soul wounds, calling us to move beyond our hurts to be difference-makers and Silence-Breakers. It is an empowering resource for individual and group study.

In her first book, Jo Ann Fore wastes no time in getting right to the heart of the matter and gets you hooked from the beginning. Not from telling stories, but by sharing real life circumstances, not only of herself, but also of others. These circumstances were deep life hurts to these women but they worked hard, and still do, so they can step out daily and use their voices to be heard so other women will know they are not alone. Jo Ann is so transparent and descriptive but not graphic, this helps her readers to envision the circumstances and feel the emotions that were taking place each in each circumstance.

The biggest blessing coming from the book for me is Jo Ann made sure, by reading the book, we would learn how to listen for God and His directions. This allow us to learn to use our own voices and share our hurts in whatever way we feel safe and receive the healing our Heavenly Father has for us.

Along the journey to finding my voice I found this book. Jo Ann Fore truly touched me in a mighty way with her words of encouragement and wisdom. Only someone who has been through the fire can give such an awe inspiring message. This book has truly changed my life. As a Christian Counselor, but mostly as a woman, I will use what has encouraged me to empower others.

Jo Ann, you rock!

The stories of brave women stitch this book's pages together in one tightly bound universal voice of praise. Jo Ann Fore weaves her personal story with the experiences of several women who have overcome the shadows of past hurts. The author shows us many who have found and experienced the freeing grace of God. In this book we find what happens when a wounded person seeks their own healing, finds freedom from their inner pain, and reaches out in love to other women by telling her story to the sisterhood. An excellent read: gripping, painful, energizing, reflective, full of hope--with a message that speaks. I purchased this book for my Book Dinner ladies. I know they will be blessed and motivated through its message. Something here for everybody.
