Product Description

While our culture places great emphasis on comfort, security, control, and success, there are deeper rewards for those who take hold of God's promises and reach out in the Name of Christ. Adventure, faith, miracles, and a deep knowledge of Jesus Christ. This is what Susie calls her readers to realize.

Author and speaker Susie Larson makes her message graspable, accessible, and doable. Her stories, scriptural devotionals, and study questions set the stage for a first-hand experience of God's heart for personal freedom, for the plight of the suffering, and for a conviction to get involved with His work among those in need.
While the book's primary focus is on the reader's journey into freedom, it clearly conveys our shared responsibility to “seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, [and] plead for the widow” (Isaiah 1:17, nrsv). This is God's expectation for those who truly know Him.

When we live in bondage to our fears, insecurities, shame, guilt, despair, or sinful appetites, we live self-focused lives. But when we embrace our freedom in Christ, our hearts are released from captivity and we view everything around us as tools to bring that same freedom to those who desperately need it. This book is for the woman who wants to grow stronger in her walk of faith and who wants to gain a greater view of God's heart for the world. May she be provoked, to be as free as God meant her to be. And as a result, may she become an advocate for the freedoms of others.  

Each chapter includes devotional insights, justice quotes, anecdotes, prayer guidance, and study/reflective questions.

Endorsements

Susie Larson's call to women to not only discover their freedom in Christ but also to embrace it rings true because it issues from a humble, guileless heart. Larson knows what it's like to be bound up in spiritual and emotional prisons—some of our own making, some by others. She also knows the release of discovering that we no longer have to stay in those prisons unless we choose to do so. Embracing Your Freedom is more than a practical discipleship tool—though it is certainly that—but it is also a compelling invitation to begin to move into all the joys and adventures that await us as women of the Most High God. Larson doesn't just point the way;she leads us there with her stories and examples and challenges. It's a journey you won't want to miss.

Embracing Your Freedom was written for you—a woman who desires to live in personal freedom and is willing to help the helpless become free. Prepare to be challenged and emboldened. Prepare to change and become more like Jesus!
—Kendra Smiley, conference speaker, and author of Be the Parent, Journey of a Strong-Willed Child, and Do Your Kids a Favor...Love Your Spouse

Embracing Your Freedom is the book for women that's needed to be written for a long time! What Susie's gotten exactly right is the divine coherence between the God who redeems the hearts of individuals and the One who liberates those who are bound by injustice. In fact, for God—and for Susie!—these two are inextricably linked. In this important book, Susie invites women into life that really is life by naming them, naming us, as agents made to extend God's justice to those who are bound. Women today are hungry for this kind of holy congruity. Thank you, Susie!
—Margot Starbuck, author of The Girl in the Orange Dress: Searching for a Father Who Does Not Fail

From Latin America to India, the Philippines, and Afghanistan, I've personally witnessed the despair of exploited children, abused women, widows, and orphans. Like author Susie Larson, I've wept because I can't rescue them all. International Justice Mission is a powerful instrument of God's justice in that darkness, and Embracing Your Freedom offers a powerful message of inner liberation along with God's heart of love for the oppressed.
—Jeanette Windle, author of Veiled Freedom and Betrayed

In Embracing Your Freedom, Susie Larson vividly demonstrates that the path to embracing our own freedom is aligned with advocating for the freedoms of others. Whether the bondage is to abusive traffickers or to the lies of Satan, freedom comes only through the power of Jesus Christ and His truth.
—Vonda Skelton, national speaker and author of Seeing Through the Lies: Unmasking the Myths Women Believe
