Review: Fresh Start

Fresh Start: God's Invitation to a Great Life.
By: Doug Fields

Throughout our lives we all reach a point in which we want nothing more than a Fresh Start.  A 'do over' or a chance to move beyond that which is holding us back from the future our hearts desire.  When you reach this place, Doug Fields is ready to tell you just how to get 'unstuck' and start moving forward, with faith as your guide.  Whether it's issues of forgiveness, defining who you are, overcoming rejection in your past, moving beyond your anger, or finding freedom from sins God's already forgiven - this book offers you a method, a system.

If I'd found this book a few years ago, I can't imagine how much faster I would have arrived at where I am today.  Still, when I found this book through Thomas Nelson Publishing I was still drawn in by the topics it was said to contain: Finding true friendship, overcoming discouragement, even defining success. If you feel stuck in a rut than this book has answers you need.  The book was directed at those early on in their walk or going through a long dry season spiritually.  However, even in my current walk I found this book refreshing, renewing, and a testament to how far God can bring you from where you've been.  Doug Fields presents his message in a way that allows anyone to be able to read, understand, and receive it should they approach it with an open heart.  I recommend this book to you if you feel trapped by something holding you back from God's best, whatever your particular 'rut' may be.

It is God's desire for you to 'have life...and have it to the full' (John 10:10).  Don't stay stuck! There's freedom through the power of Christ.
