Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for a review. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own.
In Sandie Freed’s “Letting Go of your Limitations”, readers will find ways to experience God’s transforming power in their lives. She takes a look at 11 limitations we put on ourselves and helps readers find ways to let go of those.
Each chapter looks at a specific limitation such as “pride”, “disappointments”, or “pressure to achieve results” with a Scripture story and reflective activity.
When I first picked up the book, I was a bit surprised that the first chapter was Letting Go of “Religion” – this is a book about God, after all. Reading it, I realized Freed was looking to help her readers become free of the vision of oppressive/persecuting/hypocritical religion. Both Greg and I have struggled with organized religion at points in our lives, so to read that we were not alone in our struggle was refreshing. The important thing is to hunger for God and let his blessings into our lives. The rest will come as we move with Him (and if I am interpreting my feelings right, lead to finding the right faith community to help build up that journey with God).
The reason you decide to pick up this book and read it will likely be different than mine. You may read one of the eleven chapters and it really speak to you when none of the others do. This is exactly why I believe Sandie wrote this book.

“God is in the restoration business. His desire is to restore us, heal up the brokenhearted and demonstrate Kingdom power as never before.”–Dr. Sandie Freed
