FreedomChallenge_frontcover_FinalRevisionBe free from toxic mindsets, destructive patterns of behavior, and lies that keep you bound.  
The truth behind seven little words changed Dawn Scott Damon’s life when she heard a man from a small country church sing “I am who He says I am!” Her life was transformed as she began to believe what God’s Word says about who she is in Christ, and she started her journey out of betrayal, abandonment, and deception. 
She shares compelling truths in a sixty-day interactive Bible study that identifies and confronts eight cords that keep many believers bound. These practical and powerful biblical tools are designed to give you a new mindset, a fresh beginning, and a clear direction for a positive future. 
Take the Freedom Challenge and become an active participant in your own emotional and spiritual transformation. Through a guided, intentional, and interactive daily process of putting God’s Word into practice, the strongholds of destructive and bondage-making behavior in your life can be broken. Choose to take that first step to live free from deceptive self-talk, fear, depression, toxic mindsets, and debilitating lies, among others. 
Thought-provoking questions, journaling space, confessions, and affirmations are included to help guide you toward freedom.

More from Dawn

As a little girl, I can remember singing in church with all my heart “Blessed Be the Ties That Bind.” Those ties that bind our hearts to one-another in love and to Jesus himself, are indeed blessed. But what about ties that aren’t blessed?
Hi I’m Dawn and I’m super glad you stopped by today!
I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. At 19 years old, I became a wife and very soon after, a mother. After years of abuse, I was also a victim of rage and bitterness. The childhood sexual trauma was over, but the abuse aftermath—anger, pain, and depression—continued to destroy me. The cords of unwanted bondage choked joy and life out of me. 
Today, I live fierce and free and serve as a freedom-coach to help others do the same. I’ve been on a journey for over 25 years, seeking God’s freedom through his truth and learning how to empower others to do the same. The Freedom Challenge: 60-Days to Untie the Cords that Bind You, is the map God gave me to find my way out of bondage, and now I’m sharing it with you! I pray you will also experience God’s glorious deliverance.
And now some fun facts about me:
I have a wonderful husband named Paul. Together we pastor a church called Tribes—but here’s the deal, he’s the “Pastor’s Spouse,” not me.
I am a grandma of 11! It’s the awesomest—a word I use to describe it! I especially like what my grandson Colton calls me…Jam’ma.
I love animals—all kinds—and I’ve determined there are absolutely no germs in dog kisses.
I also have to admit, I adore anything that glitters or sparkles and someday hope to have a bling store.
Lastly, I love Jesus and I still sing my heart out in church!


I enjoyed the book and how transparent the author is about her past. I remember growing up hearing, "Oh you are the preacher's kid, or you are related to  the boys that always get in trouble." I felt like that was my identity. I never heard , " You are smart, beautiful or even that you are fun to be around." I liked when the author says , " The truest thing about you and me is that we are who God says we are!"   God sees us as His children blessed and prospering. Labels are everywhere and people come to be identified as such. It is time to stop that thinking and grasp who we are which is accepted and loved.

The author has broken down each day into topics that help us grow emotionally and spiritually . We don't have to be stuck thinking no one likes us and trying to please everyone. We have been accepted by God and we need to live in that truth. The scriptures throughout the study are very timely and reinforce the subjects. It is a very encouraging book and one that should not be rushed. I loved how the examples the author uses really helps readers to understand that we are not alone in our struggles. Many of us have negative thoughts, but as you read the book you can begin to distance yourself from the things that have kept you bound up in lies.

In this book each chapter builds on the next which encouraged me to look at myself in a different way. Insecurity plays a big role in many lives. We feel less than others and tend to shrink into the background so we won't be rejected.  The book emphasizes that we don't have to feel this way anymore. Embrace who we are in Christ and let Him set you free from negative thoughts.

The book is set for sixty days and gives encouragement, God's wisdom and a life that we can enjoy without the enemy whispering negative thoughts to us. This book goes on my bookshelf to use over and over again . It is a tool that will help me when I struggle in areas and remind me of how much God loves me.

"The kind of love God wants us to demonstrate is more than a feeling; it's a choice."

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
