Many people seem to have it all together outwardly, but inside they are a wreck. Their past has broken, crushed, and wounded them inwardly. They can be healed. God has a plan, and Isaiah 6:1 reveals that the Lord came to heal the brokenhearted. He wants to heal victims of abuse and emotional wounding. Joyce Meyer is a victim of the physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse she suffered as a child. Yet today she has a nationwide ministry of emotional healing to others like herself. In 'Beauty for Ashes' she outlines major truths that brought healing in her life and describes how other victims of abuse can also experience God's healing in their lives.

Several days ago, I was in the midst of a debilitating depressive stage. I had heard of Joyce Meyer and even heard her speak but never really paid attention to her really. Two days before getting the book and pretty much dead inside, I saw her ministering on television and it seemed she was talking right at me. I decided to research her and found her website through which I found her book. Not wanting to spend the $25, I searched my local library and found it. I took it home and started reading at about noon and by 7:44 p.m. I had finished the entire book. It truly changed my mind and emotions. I am now on a journey to heal my broken self and all because of this book. Strongly recommended for people going through depression or simply wanting to heal themselves from life's blows.

This is one of the very first books I ever read by Joyce Meyer. I highly recommend it for anyone who has been abused or neglected or mistreated in any way. Joyce gives practical steps to help you deal with the emotions and effects from past hurts and gain a new perspective for a bright future!
