Unashamed: Drop the Baggage, Pick up Your Freedom, Fulfill Your Destiny

By Christine Caine

Shame tends to wrap itself around our hearts like a net that can be hard to untangle. Wounds from childhood such as bullying, abuse, or divorce wreak havoc on our souls. But you can break free from these traps by clinging to God’s truth, dropping the baggage and living your destiny to the fullest. In Unashamed, Christine Caine shares that, in order to change the future, you have to believe that God is bigger than your mistakes, inadequacies, past, and limitations.
