Description : In Lisa Williams’ A Circle of Friends Celebrating Life, she examines the pain from her past and helps us uncover the scars in our own lives. She undresses and addresses the secrets that kept her in bondage for over two decades. She illustrates how damaging child abuse, incest, domestic violence and abandonment can be on the human mind and spirit. This book is a loud call for those of us who are still guarding our secrets to seek healing, forgiveness and eternal life that is only offered in Christ. Healing the hurt and learning to celebrate life is really the heart of this book—the only reality that can break the uninterrupted cycle of victimization and abuse. With poignant insight, she guides us on the pathway to heal the wounded spirit that possibly lies dormant within us all. Lisa's truth provided me a mirror that reflected my own life. As I examined my plight, her book encouraged me and strengthened me with the courage to walk away from 30 years of mental and physical abuse. Jo Ann. Davis, Survivor of Domestic Violence
