Identity theft. We all know the damage it inflicts---or do we? There's a kind of identity theft that goes far deeper than our financial records. It impoverishes our souls and keeps us from experiencing the richness in life God intends for us.Have you been ...* Robbed by Relationships?* Mugged by the Mirror?* Stolen by Success?* Pickpocketed by the Past?Mike Breaux exposes the four 'identity thieves' that steal our sense of who we truly are and render our lives diminished versions of what they were intended to be. We were never meant to be chameleons, changing into whatever we need to be in order to gain love and acceptance. We were created for more---much more---than the way we look, what we accomplish or fail to accomplish, and the sum of our past rejections, failures, and wounds.The good news is that no matter how they were stolen, our identities are retrievable. With trademark humor, compelling stories, and down-to-earth wisdom, Mike Breaux shows how we can reclaim our deep, God-given identities and live freely, purposefully, and joyously out of a renewed knowledge of who we truly are.
