A while back I picked up Doug Fields’ book Fresh Start. I am not sure why, but I had a hard time reading it all the way through. I guess, I really just got lazy when it came to reading. So, the book sat on my nightstand for a while. A few weeks ago, I made the commitment to start reading again. I thought Fresh Start would be the best way to start this new commitment. I was not disappointed.
Fields attacked many pertinent topics that I think stop Christians dead in their walks with Christ and personal lives. Some of these topics include: I found myself highlighting and taking notes all throughout the book.
* Dealing with pride * Defining success * Living with guilt * Struggling with conflicts * Finding true friendships * Overcoming discouragement * Facing rejection * Attacking angerFields had a great and simplistic way of reminding us that the only thing getting in one's way of getting "unstuck" is US!
I would recommend this book to any believer that may have lost sight of relying solely on God to help them move forward in life. Thomas Nelson provided me with a complimentary book to review and these opinions are solely mine.
