Many people seem to have it all together outwardly, but inside they are a wreck. Their past has broken, crushed, and wounded them inwardly. They can be healed. God has a plan, and Isaiah 61 reveals that the Lord came to heal the brokenhearted. He wants to heal victims of abuse and emotional wounding. Joyce Meyer is a victim of the physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse she suffered as a child. Yet today she has a nationwide ministry of emotional healing to others like herself. In Beauty for Ashes she outlines major truths that brought healing in her life and describes how other victims of abuse can also experience God's healing in their lives. Joyce Meyer suffered for thirty-three years the devastating effects of abuse. Now God has exchanged her ashes for beauty and called her to help others allow Him to do the same for them....

Beauty For Ashes: Receiving Emotional Healing (Revised Edition) Reviews
Very encouraging to know that God wants to take my ugly ashes and swap them for His beauty! I'm still learning how to surrender them to Him but I know that He wants to do that for me becuase He loves me!
It is THE best book I've read in a long time. I loved it and plan to share it with anyone who needs uplifting. Joyce Meyer had a rough life growing up and she expresses her feelings at the time so well. As someone who suffered a similar fate, I can say she knows exactly how I felt and continued to until several months ago. Joyce, you are such a Blessing.
Eh. I hate that every single quoted verse is broken down into defining every word. Not necessary! I had to skip over a lot because this was annoying.
Other than that, this may be fairly helpful to anyone dealing with issues that cause them private turmoil and wrecked confidence. But! There is a lot of ego and somewhat unreasonable expectations aimed at the victim, I think.
I found it very helpful and informative. I felt less alone reading it as I could see from what I read I could relate to a lot of it. I found it very affirming and validating of my experiences which is what I needed for my healing.
I have a weakness for this type of book every so often, and every so often I indulge it. I like Joyce Meyer especially because even without her religious teaching she offers solid practical advice. Some days what you really need is solid. practical. advice.
I am re-reading this book again, I am in a place in my personal spiritual life where I have been able to openly HEAR what the author is talking about. In the past week I have really had major awakenings in my spirit where I am/was able to hear what I needed to do in order to be where I belong on this new level in God!
Joyce Meyer here has one of her best books. For women who have been through trauma or abuse, this book will clarify a lot of spiritual questions and provide a lot of encouragement to survivors through her Biblical promises and teachings.
A helpful book for me because of some people I know with abuse in their past--which isn't exactly in the past, as it lingers in their heart and hurts all over again, especially if we are not careful and sensitive to their feelings. I don't agree with all Joyce Meyer's theology or, perhaps, methods of recovery, though it has helped her and may, indeed, help others. Most of it in this book aligns quite with Scripture, though, I think.
The author speaks from experience, which helps me to understand ...more
