The Freedom Challenge Blog Tour and Giveaway

About the Book

Book: The Freedom Challenge
Author: Dawn Scott Damon
Genre:  Christian Living, Women’s Interest, Personal Growth, Devtional
Release Date: March 22, 2019

Be free from toxic mindsets, destructive patterns of behavior, and lies that keep you bound.  

The truth behind seven little words changed Dawn Scott Damon’s life when she heard a man from a small country church sing “I am who He says I am!” Her life was transformed as she began to believe what God’s Word says about who she is in Christ, and she started her journey out of betrayal, abandonment, and deception. 

She shares compelling truths in a sixty-day interactive Bible study that identifies and confronts eight cords that keep many believers bound. These practical and powerful biblical tools are designed to give you a new mindset, a fresh beginning, and a clear direction for a positive future. 

Take the Freedom Challenge and become an active participant in your own emotional and spiritual transformation. Through a guided, intentional, and interactive daily process of putting God’s Word into practice, the strongholds of destructive and bondage-making behavior in your life can be broken. Choose to take that first step to live free from deceptive self-talk, fear, depression, toxic mindsets, and debilitating lies, among others. 

Thought-provoking questions, journaling space, confessions, and affirmations are included to help guide you toward freedom.

My Review

I've read lots of books on spiritual transformation and this may very well be the best one I've come across. I have long believed changing our thoughts to conform to what God says about us was the key to living the way God desires and would result in my best possible life. I never found the means to effectively renew my mind to those biblical truths – until now.

This book will put you in position to allow the Holy Spirit to transform your thinking to conform to what God says about you. The daily format allows you to think through one aspect of what God says it true of you, providing Scriptures upon which to meditate, Scripture based confession and affirmation, and penetrating questions to help think through wrong belief and heal past hurts. Going through the book was like having my own spiritual transformation workshop or conference.

I cannot speak highly enough about this book. I think every Christian would benefit greatly from working through it. And it will take work. I like the 60 day format because it takes time to renew thinking. The format of the book is a great way to facilitate spiritual transformation. Grab a journal and this book and begin the spiritual process of renewing your mind.

My rating: 5/5 stars.

More from Dawn

As a little girl, I can remember singing in church with all my heart “Blessed Be the Ties That Bind.” Those ties that bind our hearts to one-another in love and to Jesus himself, are indeed blessed. But what about ties that aren’t blessed? Hi I’m Dawn and I’m super glad you stopped by today! I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. At 19 years old, I became a wife and very soon after, a mother. After years of abuse, I was also a victim of rage and bitterness. The childhood sexual trauma was over, but the abuse aftermath—anger, pain, and depression—continued to destroy me. The cords of unwanted bondage choked joy and life out of me.  Today, I live fierce and free and serve as a freedom-coach to help others do the same. I’ve been on a journey for over 25 years, seeking God’s freedom through his truth and learning how to empower others to do the same. The Freedom Challenge: 60-Days to Untie the Cords that Bind You, is the map God gave me to find my way out of bondage, and now I’m sharing it with you! I pray you will also experience God’s glorious deliverance. And now some fun facts about me: I have a wonderful husband named Paul. Together we pastor a church called Tribes—but here’s the deal, he’s the “Pastor’s Spouse,” not me. I am a grandma of 11! It’s the awesomest—a word I use to describe it! I especially like what my grandson Colton calls me…Jam’ma. I love animals—all kinds—and I’ve determined there are absolutely no germs in dog kisses. I also have to admit, I adore anything that glitters or sparkles and someday hope to have a bling store. Lastly, I love Jesus and I still sing my heart out in church!
