“I read your books ‘Overcoming Jealousy and Insecurity’ and ‘Victory over Grumpiness, Irritation, and Anger.’ God has used these books to revolutionize my life.
Due to my childhood experiences and work experience in exotic strip clubs, I had become a very, very damaged, jealous, and insecure woman. I didn’t realize this until this year. I also never realized until now how I allowed anger and the spirit of irritation to take hold of me so easily.
Due to working in strip clubs, my image of men is very distorted. This has become a major issue in my marriage. I unconsciously transfer this negative image of men onto my husband. This distortion caused me to be very insecure and jealous of my husband. Whenever I would see my husband looking at women, my mind would tell me that he desired them. Lusted for them. This caused many arguments. Our marriage has been an atomic bomb. Exploding all the time.
Your books were an answer to prayer! They are just what the Lord ordered. Thanks so much for these books.”
