Help for women who feel that they must be everything, even at the cost of who they are. What does it mean for God to call you to a supreme spiritual makeover? He's calling us to go beyond neighborliness and giving and is asking us to cleanse our souls. God wants us to get rid of the debris, confusion, emotional burnout, distractions, and anything else that stands in His way. In this book, author Jan Coleman teaches women how to emerge from their self-woven protective cocoons. Instead of pretending to be someone else, seeking acceptance, and covering up "real" lives with camouflage, God wants each of us to return to the simple life of being His child.
