Overview This book provides affirmation from God that insecurity, doubt, and fear are about to become things of the past.
Publishers Description God Delights in You Imagine a girl on a swing: leaning backward and easily pumping her legs back and forth, closing her eyes while the wind blows through her hair. She is safe, she is secure, she is free and forgiven. Perhaps you find yourself thinking, "I want to feel loved and safe and secure. I want to feel free. I want to turn my face toward heaven and experience God's smile" . Did you know that girl can be you? Because God's love-a love not based upon your performance, but on Christ's-proclaims the truth that you are His and He is "glad" He chose you. This freedom in Christ is meant to become a part of you, something you relish every day. It's like learning how to swing: it can't ever be unlearned. So climb on...your time to soar has arrived Who Is that Girl on a Swing? She's free. She's safe. She's secure. She's forgiven. She's happy. She's a child of God. And so are you. With warm understanding, refreshing humor, and striking biblical honesty, Nancy Kennedy reflects on the ways women often keep themselves from enjoying the freedom that's already theirs. Because not only do you belong to God, He is "glad" He chose you. Not only does He love you unconditionally, He "likes" you And not only does He lavish you with grace, He "smiles" upon you. Once you learn how to swing, you can't un-learn it. Once you know true freedom in Christ, you can't un-know it. It's yours for good (and it's a lot fun). So climb on...it's time to soar Endorsements "Ahhh. Nancy 's words let me be my imperfect self and still know that there is no wind strong enough to release me from my Father's grip." Karon Phillips Goodman author of "Another Fine Mess, Lord " and the Woman's Guide series "Nancy Kenndy writes with amazing humor, heart, and insight. "Girl on a Swing "soars " Heather Kopp author of "Roar: A Christian Family Guide to the Chronicles of Narnia" Story Behind the Book The Story Behind the Book ""Girl on a Swing" came from a greeting card image where a young girl is soaring on a swing. She's free and at peace, with herself and her surroundings. As I studied that image I came to realize that the girl is me-because in Christ I am free and at rest. God smiles on His own, and I am at peace. But my experience as a speaker at women's retreats has shown me that many women have difficulty believing that for themselves. This book will help them grasp the truth." -Nancy Kennedy

Great retreat material Jan 7, 2008
I bought these as gifts for my friends because our church used them at a ladies retreat, and they didn't get to go. This book was so relevant and yet humorous. It is fun to read. I will probably want to read more books by this author.
I'm not alone . . . Nov 3, 2006
It's so nice to know all of the commonalities that we have as Christian women. Nancy hits all the points and does it with humor. She reminds us that we make Jesus smile everyday and that is a refreshing thought to keep in mind! I love it!
