Shame Interrupted: How God Lifts the Pain of Worthlessness and Rejection

Shame Interrupted: How God Lifts the Pain of Worthlessness and Rejection

Edward T. Welch

No More Hiding

Shame controls far too many of us. Worthless, inferior, rejected, weak, humiliated, failure…it all adds up to wishing we could get away from others and hide. We know what shame feels like. The way out, however, is harder to find. Time doesn’t help, neither does confession, because shame is just as often from what others do to you as it is from what you have done. But the Bible is about shame from start to finish, and, if we are willing, God’s beautiful words break through.

Look at Jesus through the lens of shame and see how the marginalized and worthless are his favorites and become his people. God cares for the shamed. Through Jesus you are covered, adopted, cleansed, and healed.

Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest

Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest

Bonnie Gray

Move beyond Surviving to a Rejuvenating Place of Soul Rest

How many of us find ourselves running on empty with no time for rest, no time for ourselves, no time for God?

Bonnie Gray knows what that’s like. On the brink of fulfilling a lifelong dream, she saw her plans shatter into a journey through painful memories and anxiety. In her search for answers, she made an important discovery: we all need spiritual whitespace.

Whitespace. It’s the space on a page left unmarked. Untouched. Whitespace makes art beautiful. It gives the eye a place to rest. Just like beautiful art, our souls need balance and beauty.

With heartbreaking honesty, Bonnie guides you to discover a better story for yourself, one that feeds your soul and makes room for rest. Infused with biblical encouragement and thought-provoking prompts, this book shows us how to create space in the everyday for God, refreshment, and faith–right in the midst of our stress-frayed lives.

“Whitespace is soul grace. Bonnie Gray ushers weary women into the real possibility.”–Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts

“Women need this message. If you want to hear Jesus speak more tenderly to your soul than ever before, this is the book for you.”–Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author of Unglued

“We live in a culture that brags and boasts about being busy. Into that reality steps Bonnie with a new idea.”–from the foreword by Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Start

Bonnie Gray is the soulful writer behind faithbarista.com, serving up shots of faith for the daily grind. Her work is featured on DaySpring (in)courage and nationally syndicated on Crosswalk.com. After graduating from UCLA, Bonnie served as a missionary, ministry entrepreneur, and Silicon Valley high-tech professional. She lives in Northern California with her husband, Eric, and their two sons.

REVIEWS & AWARDS

Named by Crosswalk as one of the Best Books for Christian Women in 2014

“This is a soul-stirring book that takes you on a journey to make space in life to nurture your heart with God and dream dreams in new ways. This book will give women permission to say yes to God, practical ways to say yes to rest and find the spark in their hearts again.”–Kelly Givens, editor of iBelieve

“Gray, a popular blogger at Faith Barista, set out to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing a book. When she began, however, repressed memories resurfaced and the book turned into a reluctant account of her journey through unrecognized post-traumatic stress. The author relates the heartbreaking childhood experiences that led to severe panic attacks, insomnia, and fear. Helping her through her confrontation with her own past are a supportive husband, a good therapist, and whitespace–places in her life like the blank areas of an artist’s canvas–where she can rest and tend her soul. She offers intriguing insights into Scripture and on how God views his flawed but beloved creations. At each chapter’s end, journaling prompts help readers identify areas where they need to create white space. More than just a memoir, this is an invitation to walk the difficult road to self-discovery and healing with a fellow traveler who understands. Learning how to identify stressors and eliminate emotional clutter will benefit anyone, not just those suffering from PTSD.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review

The third section offers biblical and practical application on how to please your loving Daddy.

Let go of your past, and allow Jesus to take your hand and speak words of love and encouragement to your very soul. He loves you, dear woman, far more than you know. As you search your heart for the things that have held you back from being able to receive His perfect love, you will find that love, and treasure it. His pure and unconditional love will embrace and comfort you forever.

Suzanne D. Williams

But they didn’t know that what was on the outside wasn’t near as important as what was in the heart. Arsen’s heart was a dozen shades of gray, all murky and opaque. Toby’s … I suspect he thought it’d faded black, that he had no redeeming qualities left. But to me, he looked more and more like gold, like the sunset one of those nights where it’s all around you. You can’t escape it, but only stand there in the glow. For me, he was that glow, and I made up my mind to bask in it whenever I could.

—–
