LITTLE SINS, BIG PROBLEMS is an eye-opening, provocative journey for Christian women across seven dimensions of sin-hidden in corners of everyday life. It's a book that goes beneath the surface of daily experiences to help women understand and avoid the stealth, destructive forces that undermine spiritual growth and diminish peace.
The author exposes the reader to the silent, insidious presence of sin in everyday life-the so-called "little sins"-that are bigger and more glaringly flagrant in God's eyes than we normally recognize. It's s starling message that takes readers on a compelling and emotional journey into the pervasive and often blind nature of feminine sin.
The book soars with emotional highs and low's-including a harrowing account of the author's thirteen-year battle with an eating disorder. It's written in a fresh, unique voice that moves the reader from laughter to tears with a message that has the power to change lives. Reading the book is like talking to a friend-fun, exciting, and interesting.
