As a generation of young people back away from Christianity in staggering numbers and the flames of church divisiveness rage within social news feeds, a new Christian author invites the world into a raw and transparent work that readers say “will tear your heart out”, calling it “life changing”, and the “most powerful book I’ve ever read”.
As author Dana Goodrum shares in her latest interview:
“we (humanity) are all on this journey, a unique and individualized faith walk. One distinct thing we have in common is the gravity and multitude of our mistakes. Individually, they look different, but failure, shame, and guilt feels the same. Many of us will never find freedom from those mistakes, those feelings, and some of that fault lies within the church itself. Why? Because we (the body of Christ) are holding on to the answer but yet so many share a self-righteous depiction of religion and call it Jesus. This book will meet readers, regardless of their current faith status, or past sin walk, exactly where they are. Jesus said go, and share the good news. He never said sit, and wait for them to come. This book takes the truth to the broken, by inviting them into mine from the start”.

– READER REVIEWS –
⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “Dana’s perspective on taking the things in our lives that we instinctively want to bury, and to expose them for the glory of God, completely reverses one of the oldest tactics of the enemy. The enemy wants us shackled in guilt and condemnation, not living but only existing in outer darkness. Dana exposes her “Broken” to allow the light of Christ to shine into her life. She then uses her personal experiences to encourage others to live a life in freedom.” – J. Murphy, Minister & Missionary
⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“This book is unlike any Christian book I’ve ever read, because it is so REAL. Dana opens up her life to the reader and there is a lot of ugly there, as is in my life and every other person I know. This openness brings about a powerful transformation through God and guides the reader through her journey of learning about the spiritual battle and God’s kingdom. It is highly recommended for Christians and non Christians, as it’ll either grow your faith, or answer questions you may have of the faith. Read this book, it’ll bring only blessings to you through it!” – A. Meyers
