Permission to speak freely

Permission to speak freely, by Anne Jackson. Anne Jackson asked a question on her blog, "What is one thing you feel you can't say in the church". She recieved a ton of responses to that questioned, which lead her to write this book. We get a glimps into her life and the amazing testimony she has. She calls us to a place where we can be real with each other and share our struggles, not try and hide them as has been done in the past. We learn of her struggles with addictions and how she's using that to now help others. We also hear of her struggles of sharing those problems and the people that told her not to talk about it. Rather than keep in silence about the things affecting us we need to be able to share with one another to overcome our problems.
    I adored this book! Its a fantastic read! God is not ashamed of us no matter what we do, so neither should we be ashamed to talk about our problems and recieve healing! This book is amazing, for anyone going through struggles this is an awesome book, even for those not its still an awesome read! Anne Jackson is on the right track of where our churches need to be!
