Free Yourself to Love by Jackie Kendall and Book Giveaway

addresses only (No PO Boxes). Good luck!


Jackie Kendall's childhood was a horror story of abuse. A counselor deemed her family "one of the top-ten most dysfunctional in America." Family members have dealt with this trauma in different ways: Two siblings committed suicide. Some siblings ran wild. When Jackie decided that she wanted to break the mold and be a healthy, loving woman, to forgive or not to forgive was not a question. Simply put: one can't love freely without the developed skill of forgiving freely. In FREE YOURSELF TO LOVE, Jackie shares her own story and struggle to learn this vital life skill. She also reveals the reasons for--and results of --refusing to forgive. In passionate, empathetic prose, Jackie urges her readers to exchange free-floating bitterness for the freedom to love and be loved.





Jackie Kendall has been involved with ministry for twenty-five years, working as teacher, counselor, conference speaker, and author. Jackie works with several athletic teams, including the Atlanta Braves and Pro Athletes Outreach (which is involved with professional baseball teams and the NFL). She is also the president of Power to Grow Ministries and the author or co-author of several books.

  14. My husband suffered many forms of abuse at the hands of his father and has been having a hard time finding his way back from all of this. This would be a great book to read so that I could help him learn to truly love, maybe for the first time, especially himself. Thanks for the awesome opportunity.
