Shame can take on many forms. It hides in the shadows of the most successful, confident and high-achieving woman who struggles with balancing her work and children, as well as in the heart of the broken, abused and downtrodden woman who has been told that she will never amount to anything. Shame hides in plain sight and can hold us back in ways we do not realize. But Christine Caine wants readers to know something: we can all be free.
I know. I ve been there, writes Christine. I was schooled in shame. It has been my constant companion from my very earliest memories. I see shame everywhere I look in the world, including in the church. It creeps from heart to heart, growing in shadowy places, feeding on itself so that those struggling with it are too shamed to seek help from shame itself.
In Unashamed, Christine reveals the often-hidden consequences of shame in her own life and the lives of so many Christian women and invites you to join her in moving from a shame-filled to a shame-free life.
In her passionate and candid style, Christine leads you into God s Word where you will see for yourself how to believe that God is bigger than your mistakes, your inadequacies, your past, and your limitations. He is not only more powerful than anything you ve done but also stronger than anything ever done to you. You can deal with your yesterday today, so that you can move on to what God has in store for you tomorrow a powerful purpose and destiny he wants you to fulfill.
Join the journey. Lay ahold of the power of Jesus Christ today and step into the future his future for you a beautiful, full, life-giving future, where you can even become a shame-lifter to others. Live unashamed"

Caine, international speaker and cofounder of Propel Women, shares her history of being rejected, bullied, and sexually abused, and feeling that she was destined to never find a spiritual community because of her Greek heritage. She invites women from every walk of life to cast off past experiences that might have spawned an inner voice stuck within a cycle of shame and condemnation, and instead to invite Christ into their hearts. After years of abuse and spiritual neglect, Caine considers the moment at rock bottom when she felt helpless and hopeless about her life prospects before describing the levity that came from studying the Bible and discovering the welcoming love of God. Overcoming her calcified need for acceptance, she was able to reconfigure her hopeless mindset with the knowledge that God had already accepted her. Today, Caine speaks to tens of thousands of women around the world to share the gospel and guide hurting souls toward a path of healing from the inside out. Powerful and direct, her voice of advocacy shines through in every story. This book is both a dynamic confession and motivational guide for women striving to live free from past shame. (May)
