In Jesus Approaches, Elizabeth Kelly shares vivid stones of New Testament women whose encounters with Jesus freed them to flourish in life. The stories are supplemented with moving accounts from her own life, and from the lives of women like you, to demonstrate that sometimes the best way to find healing, strength, and wholeness in Christ is, ironically, to lead with vulnerability and openness. Ultimately, Jesus Approaches teaches that Finding the fullness of life for which you were created begins with bringing your brokenness to the Lord.
