Breaking Through the 7 Lies Women Tell Themselves
Imagine life with unlimited possibility, where fear, misconceptions, and insecurities don’t have the power to rob you of your potential or your dreams. Many women have trouble seeing this vision because they are bound by lies that keep them from living free.
In Set Free to Live Free, Saundra Dalton-Smith shows you how to break free from seven mental ties that hold you back and steal your joy, like striving for perfection, comparing yourself to others, and having an all-or-nothing attitude. Through compelling stories and inspirational writing, she encourages you to embrace spontaneity, be transparent, nurture your body, and cultivate a balanced life.
“Finally a book that brings to light the lies that women have been fed since childhood–and how to break their emotional grip on our lives forever. Saundra Dalton-Smith shows us just how precious we are to God and how we can live empowered and drama-free lives.”–Carol M. Mackey, author of the bestselling Sistergirl Devotions
“Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith has captured the role of the Spirit in the healing process with clarity and love.”–Jane I. Honikman, MS, founder of Postpartum Support International

IN MY OPINION
Every woman has dealt with one of the lies in Set Free to Live Free by Dr. Saundra Dalton-Smith. Whether it’s striving for perfection, living an all-or-nothing existence, or comparing ourselves to others, we’ve let our attitudes and beliefs effect our lives.
I appreciate that Dr. Dalton-Smith address these head on. Within each lie, she delves into five steps to take to change our perceptions. The author introduces each of the seven lies with a story of a woman before delving in how to change our thinking and reach for a different outcome.
Some of the scripture verses felt like a stretch to me (I’m not a fan of Scripture taken out of context to fit a topic), but there are some gems in there to meditate on too. The fact that the author drives women to the Bible for God’s help in making life changes is well documented throughout the book.
This is an updated edition of Set Free to Live Free, and just as relevant (maybe even more so) as it was upon its first printing.
