Product Description

Heather Holleman used to live a fragile life, a prisoner to fear, anxiety, and despair. Like many younger women, she knew Jesus, but she wasn't strong in Him. Her search for comfort seemed unending.

Then one day, while reading a simple statement in Scripture, "God guards the lives of his faithful ones" (Psalm 97:10), that all began to change.

In Guarded by Christ: Knowing the God Who Rescues and Keeps Us, Heather guides women through a series of practical mental shifts that immensely helped her live strong in the Lord. Learn how in Jesus, you are guarded:

  • By righteousness instead of condemnation
  • By peace instead of anxiety
  • By hope instead of despair
  • By the Holy Spirit's power instead of self-effort
  • By a crucified life instead of a self-important one
We all need maturity in Christ that prepares us not just to endure anything, but to live from the strength and peace of Jesus in every season. Guarded by Christ will help women cultivate this maturity, reconnecting them with the Savior who rescues, keeps, and holds us with His love.

In days of terror and horror, when danger prevails and safety fails, we all need a place of security, a sure protector who will not yield. That person is our God, and Heather Holloman leads us to know Him in a fresh, even transforming way: as the God who guards us. She unveils the reality of who He is and how we are safe with Him. Just when we need such a certainty.

Why do I love Heather Holleman's new book? Yes, it is authentically honest, refreshingly perceptive but that it is not why I love it. Heather wrote Guarded by Christ because guard became her new favorite word in Scripture. As she shared from her heart, guard became my new favorite biblical word too! Do you desire to know how God guards your soul? Read this book and you will find yourself praying, "Thank you God for all the ways You guard me!"
