About the Book
Dinah Hodgson looks like she has it all—perfect husband, three great kids, and fulfilling volunteer work. But behind the American-dream persona, Dinah carries dark secrets in her subconscious, ready to spill out.
Underneath her facade of happiness, Dinah struggles emotionally. When her unhappiness becomes too much to bear, she cries out to God. His response is not what she expects: He leads her to reexamine her tumultuous childhood. Dinah resists—why would God want to bring the physical, emotional, and sexual abuse back to the surface? Even though obedience will be painful, Dinah ultimately accepts that it’s the only way out of her dark place.
What follows is a journey of reclaiming her destiny as God brings her up from the ashes and into abundant life
What do you think of your here-and-now?
Are you struggling with issues that are overwhelming, with no end in sight? Or are you, like Dinah, pressing on, fully cognizant that even the most “perfect” life has its ups and downs? God can do the unimaginable in your life if you’re willing to let Him. If you allow Christ to redeem the territories of your heart, you too can be led up from the ashes into a life of abundant blessing.
“No true journey to freedom and healing in Christ is ever easy. . . . Dinah helps her readers confront that pain little by little, with compassion and confidence to the end.”
— J. A. Marx, author of The Silenced Christian Wife

About the Author
My mission is to bring the good news of the Gospel to individuals, bind up the brokenhearted, proclaim liberty, open prison doors for individuals as I am used by God to restore individuals to their original design and purpose. My focus is primarily leaders as I have a passion to see them finish their race well.
From early on I have volunteered my time serving in multiple capacities in the church. In 1996, after praying for focus in ministry the Lord led me to Isaiah 61. This has now been a guiding post for my ministry. In 2004, after taking a “Women in Ministry” course, I realized I was actually called to ministry. In 2010, I was ordained. I’ve received my BA in Christian Leadership, my MM in Christian Leadership and Christian Counseling, and currently I’m working on my doctorate. I’ve served in Women’s Ministry, Adult Education, Growth and Leadership ministry, Freedom Ministries, as well as an associate pastor. I’ve worked in the church as well as with Discipleship, Leadership, and Freedom Ministries.
