Growing up as a preacher's kid, Gifford had been submerged in Christian culture for decades when she uncovered the truth - that there were broken parts of her heart that weren't on friendly terms with the god who lived inside. Through disappointments and traumas, she had learned to guard her heart from God, keeping her angry, entrapped, and disconnected. As struggles and hardships continued, she finally learned to run toward her relationship with God when things got hard instead of running away from him like she had in the past. The more that she did this - building her heart's capacity for intimacy and deep relationship - the more her heart began to heal from the inside out. She teaches listeners to access the solution that's already living inside of them - the god who forever made their hearts a home.
When trials and tragedy hit our lives in a fallen world, our hearts can get smashed to bits, and we end up putting God on trial and blaming him for the mess. But Christa helps listeners understand that they don't have to live controlled by their circumstances - or angry with God. Instead, she provides powerful insight and practical steps to turn the painful fire that comes to destroy us into an unexpected friend that can produce our greatest healing.
The condition of the heart determines the condition of life - and the heart can be bound up and healed, producing freedom and abundant life. Christa helps listeners experience steps to turn their pain into the healing and wholeness available to every believer.

I stumbled across this gem of a book at a time in my life just before I was diagnosed with PTSD. God's timing is perfect! Christa's emotional narration helped me feel things I didn't want to feel and helped calm my racing thoughts as she concisely laid out insights that drew me closer to God and the sanctuary that He had prepared for me in my own heart where the Holy Spirit met me and bound my wounds, giving me back my health and healing my wounds. (Jeremiah 30:17) I am so grateful for how God used Christa and this book in my life. I pray that many others will also be willing to receive the gift of healing that this book imparts through encouraging increasing intimacy with God and His Word.❤️
