Anne Jackson asked a question on her blog one day; "What is one thing you feel you can't say in the church?" Although she was simply driven by curiosity, she was overwhelmed by the response she received from readers.
In her new book, Permission to Speak Freely, Anne shares her own testimony, confessing her struggle with sin and depression. She introduces us to the concept and gift of going second. By honestly sharing our struggles with others first, we are opening the door for them to also share and speak freely about their brokenness.
I really enjoyed Anne's humor and willingness to openly share her struggles. Her honesty is inspiring and gives great insight into the value of giving ourselves permission to speak freely.
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson, in exchange for my honest review.
