This is a book about parts of ourselves that we sometimes don’t want to admit. And yet, as we bring them to God He opens great fountains of grace. Inviting God into our negative emotions and painful struggles often brings the deepest growth and healing in our lives. The sections include:
“When I started reading True Confessions I couldn’t put it down. It drew me to face the simple truth that we are as sick as our secrets. Guilt puts up walls and causes us to hide from God, other people and ourselves. Deep-seated guilt is the most common ailment among people. Many of us have had the experience of healing as we unburden our conscience to a trusted friend or in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. James says, “…confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed” (Jas 5:16). Many people needing psychological help can benefit by prayerfully sharing guilt and hurts with a trusted friend, clergy or counselor. True Confessions is simple and to the point. But aren’t most profound realities? I heartily recommend this book and intend to use it in my sessions on inner healing.

“So often we are told to ‘stuff’ our feelings. I love Linda’s book. It enables us to look honestly at what we are feeling without guilt or shame, and allow the Holy Spirit to bring insight and healing. As she shares each story it helps us to trust God for our own hurting places. Bathed in scripture and prayer, this little book guides us in ways to handle hurts, frustrations and mindsets that keep us from being all that we can be. Linda is so open and transparent to share her journey of life that it encourages us to open up to the love of the Father and be healed.”

“This beautiful book by my friend, Linda, is a marvelous teaching that helps us enter into contemplative prayer. Through this prayer God will lead us into honesty with Him and with ourselves, deep in our souls. He will also help us lead others into the healing of their soul.
