When Jesus told His followers, “I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you.” (John 14:18), He was referring to an ongoing relationship with a loving Father. But Satan’s deceptive tactics block most Christians from the lives God intended. Escape the Lie: Journey to Freedom from the Orphan Heart uses powerful, biblical teaching about the three voices, identity in Christ, and the orphan heart along with compelling true-life examples to help readers identify and renounce the orphan heart’s crippling wounds and move into abundant life.
