Book Review - "Becoming Free" by Christy Monson



From Amazon:
Throughout our lives we tend to build up armor that inhibits our growth. Our armor comes in many disguises: depression, self-deprecation, or the inability to act. We often create our own armor, our own protection, unique to us, but this protection actually stops our growth and the abundant live we each seek.

An abundant and happier life can be yours, but you must identify and release the obstructions that keep you from the wisdom and wealth you want. Christy Monson, a successful family therapist for over thirty years, has written Becoming Free to help you achieve your goals and find deeper happiness in your life.

Becoming Free is a step-by-step book to help you to shed your armor, expand your optimistic thinking, and enhance your ability to give and receive. Once you become free of the armor you’ve built around you to protect yourself, you’ll find the abundant life you have always sought.

Christy Monson is an experienced counselor. She has provided us with a guide to defeat depression and discouragement. Monson teaches us to learn to work, take care of ourselves, communicate effectively with others, and create a successful plan to replace negative thoughts and actions with beneficial ones.

I read this book over a couple of days, but plan to go back a second time more slowly. Monson's techniques are practical, reasonable, and worth putting into practice. As you work through the steps, you will discover an inner strength and abilities you didn't know you had. Although this book is written for women, the techniques found within will benefit both genders of all ages.

You can purchase "Becoming Free" from Amazon or Familius.
