In the sex-crazed culture of America, there needs to come a return to Jesus Christ and The Word of God. In America today, Lisa tells us 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused by the age of 18. Lisa develops 9 strategies of truth to build a foundationon, beginning with #1: "satan does not exist." Lisa finds hope in the scriptures and resting in God while reading Secrets of the Vine by Bruce Wilkenson, and Reese Howells: Intercessor, by Norman Grubb. She orders Joyce Meyers' Emotional Healing Kit for further healing. Lisa develops a 12-step battle plan beginning with step #1: WALK in Faith and Patience. She lists 26 Keys to Protecting Your Children, and a section on scripture confessions that she has read numerous times outloud.
Lisa's journal tells us her daughter Kalyn has a weakened spiritual immune system but God is telling her "See her as delivered. See her as set free. Treat her as such. Pray the prayer of faith. Ignore symptoms. Walk in wisdom concerning the day to day. Watch My Word performed in your midst. The victory is yours, but the battle is Mine...Declare and decree My Word."
I was recently reminded that fear and faith have somewhat the same foundation: Fear means you expect something bad is going to happen in the future. Faith means you are expecting something good. Sometimes you need encouragement and this book may provide that for many. When the disciples were confronted by a storm after Jesus had shown them it could have been calmed on a previous occasion, they failed to calm it. Nevertheless, they were together as a group, and should have drawn strength from each other. This book may become an additional source of strength for you.
Kalyn candidly tells her story of the emotional roller coaster she experienced. Her pain took the form of rebellion, depression, dysfunctional relationships, eating disorders, and self-mutilation.
The format and content of the material is instructional, well organized, and practical. The book is filled with strategies and tactics aimed at helping the reader build a plan for dealing with Satan's deception, the place of parental authority, and for engaging in spiritual battle.
The chapter titled "Twenty-Six Keys for Protecting Your Child from Sexual Predators" is especially important for parents. The points to ponder at the end of the chapters also provide important reinforcement to the material covered in the text. These points also open the possibility for use as a group discussion guide within the context of information meetings or in a support group setting.
"Unmask the Predators" is highly endorsed by Christian leaders, pastors, educators, and parents earnestly seeking to protect families from the influence and attack of evil predatory forces. Must reading for every parent.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
One would think church would be the safest place in the world for our children, but the harsh facts are that predators know that churches are where there are plenty of children. This book reveals the tragedy that can unfold if someone sets their heart to lure a child away from the sanctuary of the family.
God promises that ALL things will work together for the good of them who love Him and are called according to His purposes. The Cherry family story shows the redemptive work of a merciful God!
Bottom line... This book will help us all become better stewards of our children-- in our homes, schools and churches.
