On My Nightstand - A Heart Out of Hiding by Jan Cline
Jan Cline is the Director of the Inland NW Christian Writers Conference. She has a fabulous line-up of speakers for the two-day event. Check out the website.
Her book, A Heart Out of Hiding, gives both personal examples and insightful observations on how women play hide-and-seek. We often unwittingly play these games and then wonder why we lack fulfillment in life.
I recognized myself in some of her stories. Fears and lack of meaningful friendships as a child taught me how to hide. My hiding place of choice was reading every free moment. I could escape reality and live vicariously through the characters. A healthy activity became an excuse to avoid relationships.
Jan's willingness to share some very painful times and how she overcame her hiding ways will touch your heart. I hope you'll pick up a copy for yourself and one for a gift.
The book comes in both a print and Kindle version. If you click on the above link, it will take you to Amazon.
Everyone: What are some of the ways you hide from life?
