As a college psychology professor, Patricia Johnson-Laster spent hours upon hours listening to and counseling young adults with unsettled questions from their childhood. She began to see that dysfunction within families is a hidden epidemic, hindering too many young people from developing freely into the person God intends for them to be. Divorce, addiction, rejection by one or both parents, abandonment, and immature parenting often leave an imprint. Dr. Johnson-Laster believes that, left unexamined, a shallow sense of identity is often at the root of ongoing unhappiness and superficiality in the lives of many Christians.

Free to Be Me is her award-winning workbook. Here, she provides honest, insightful answers for questions such as these:

· Who am I, really?

· How can I overcome self-defeating attitudes and actions?

· Why do I have insecurity and compare myself to others?

· How can I stop being such a perfectionist?

· How do I develop a healthier image of God?

Do you feel stuck? Are you filled with nagging questions? You aren’t alone—and you don’t have to stay there! Patricia Johnson-Laster developed Free to Be Me to help you step into God’s abundant freedom and stop being defined by your past.

Free to be Me offers penetrating questions and wisdom from God’s Word to help you break free from old emotional baggage and be restored as a whole, healthy person. For individuals and groups earnestly seeking personal and spiritual growth, it’s a unique and powerful resource. Leave the ashes of failure and discouragement, and step into God’s abundant freedom!
