With a strong teaching voice evoking comparisons to Christine Caine and Jennie Allen, speaker and leader Jo Saxton confronts women on the fractured pieces of their identities and points them to help and hope in Scripture and through recognition of self-worth.
Working from the core promise in Ephesians 1:11, Jo Saxton looks at the vision a woman has of herself at an early age--and how the world distorts, changes, breaks, and alters that dream. By taking personal stories from her own life, growing up the child of Nigerian immigrants in the UK, for a time in foster care and then, later, a newlywed immigrating to the US, Jo helps identify key scenarios where identities develop that are not true to God's design. Chapters focus on themes of knowing one's name, embracing the gifts each person has been given, addressing body issues, experiencing seasons of depression or grief, and letting go of perfectionism. Through thorough examination of Biblical heroes who also experienced broken identities, Jo invites readers to live their experience, yet grasp their purpose, understanding that they are seen by a loving God, known by Him, and He promises to redeem them.
