Discover the Ultimate Shame Lifter
New Release Guides Readers to Freedom from the Binds of Toxic Shame
by Christy Wong Tuesday, March 17, 2009
Marilyn Hontz has been there. Once told she had a “shame-based perspective of life,” Marilyn sought to face the root of her shame and unlock the chains it held on her life. In her new book Shame Lifter: Replacing Your Fears and Tears with Forgiveness, Truth, and Hope (Tyndale House Publishers, March 2009), Marilyn tells her own story in order to gently guide readers through the sources of secret, toxic shame in their pasts.
In sharing her vulnerable and honest journey toward healing, Marilyn speaks directly to readers who are struggling with toxic shame or who know someone suffering from its influence. Reflection and discussion questions, prayers, and “shame lifter” actions at the end of each chapter allow readers to focus on the truth of how God sees us rather than the lies we believe about ourselves.
Whether you have been shamed by verbal comments, painful circumstances, or physical or emotional abuse, you do not need to be paralyzed and destroyed by it. Shame Lifter is Marilyn’s personal story of pulling out the root of shame and allowing forgiveness, truth, and hope to grow in its place.
