Item description for Deeper: Living in the Reality of God's Love by Debbie Alsdorf...
Overview It's time to get honest with God and live like his love for you is real--because it is! Deeper shows you how to live four core truths from Psalm 139: God knows me, he protects me, he made me, and he values me. Though you may "know" these truths in your head, this book guides you to make them a reality in your heart. If you're ready to stop striving for perfection and start living for real, it's time to go Deeper.
Publishers Description We often believe things about ourselves that do not line up with God's truth. We think our worth is based on performance or possessions, that we have to be perfect to be loved, or that we're too ordinary to be used by God. "Deeper" tears down these lies and teaches women to replace them with four truths from Psalm 139--God knows me, he protects me, he made me, he values me. Using compelling narrative and Scripture, "Deeper" helps women transform their lives by trusting in the reality of God's love. Instead of striving for perfection and worth, readers can rest in the truth that they are his.
From Publishers Weekly Alsdorf, founder of Design4Living Conferences, passionately counsels, speaks to and writes for evangelical women. Here, she calls them to live beyond what she terms Christianity Lite or the Stepford Woman reality in order to experience God's deeper truth where theology matches reality. Alsdorf tells readers of her status as a pastor's wife, then an unwilling divorced mother of two, and how she lost herself amid the shock and pain. Even after remarrying, when Alsdorf should have been happy, depression clung to her tenaciously. When a poor physical reaction meant she was not a good candidate for prescription medication for her depression, she learned to access God's powerful promises by hourly studying Psalm 139. As its truth permeated her heart and mind, she found freedom from fear and self-rejection and learned to redefine her life by mindfully internalizing her position as God's child, her passion to share Jesus' love and her purpose for serving him. Alsdorf's candor is refreshing, as is her confidence in meditating upon biblical principles and promises for lasting inner change. She skillfully takes readers by the hand and journeys with them from valleys of crippling pain and disappointment to revolutionary transformation for women of faith. (Feb.)

Truly Inspirational Feb 6, 2008
This is the best book I have ever read and it has changed me from the inside out! It has placed such a great desire within me to go "Deeper" with my relationship with God and to do whatever it takes to accomplish this level of intimacy with Him.
Debbie Alsdorf has an amazing way of capturing our hearts and bringing us face to face with God as she walks you through the "how to" of allowing God to change you from the inside out and to live differently - to "live like it's real." Her stories and analogies throughout the book help you remember and recall the Reality of God's Love in your everyday lives.
This book provides many excellent tools useful for study groups, small groups, discussions and personal study. It emphasizes the importance of knowing who you are and Whose you are and it walks you through the ways of changing and living differently regardless of where you are or where you have been.
