Healing is a Choice [BookSneeze Review]

I can’t believe I haven’t done a BookSneeze review, since October. Today, I’ll be reviewing Healing Is a Choice: 10 Decisions That Will Transform Your Life and 10 Lies That Can Prevent You From Making Them, by Stephen Arterburn

I was super-excited to read this book, as the author, Stephen Arterburn, is a very well-known Christian author, speaker, counselor, radio talk-show. And, he is also the founder of the Women of Faith conferences.

As the title suggests, this book is all about healing, and let’s be honest – who among us can’t use a little healing? Once I started reading it, I was not able to put it down. Despite its 450+ pages, I read it in just a few days.

The book was very easy to read. And, the version I received, for review, was the updated version, and it included workbook exercises at the end of each chapter. That was possible one of my favorite features of the book.

To make the book easy to read, it is divided into 10 choices that a person must make to heal:

      1. The Choice to Connect Your Life
      2. The Choice to Feel Your life
      3. The Choice to Investigate Your Life in Search of Truth
      4. The Choice to Heal Your Future
      5. The Choice to Help Your Life
      6. The Choice to Embrace Your Life
      7. The Choice to Forgive
      8. The Choice to Risk Your Life
      9. The Choice to Serve
      10. The Choice to Persevere

I wholeheartedly recommend this book; it has given me a fresh perspective on what it means to heal – from the inside-out.

    I’ve really enjoyed Dr. Arterburn’s radio show on handling emotional conflict and crisis. I bet the book is excellent for Christians striving to improve their emotional lives.
