If you're stuck in the lie that your past mistakes have limited your future, discover how to break free from shame and let God redeem, repurpose, and rewrite your story.
As someone who has recently dealt with a significant amount of trauma, I can attest that a book like this is needed for fellow Christians who are walking through difficult pasts. What I loved the most about the book Break Up With What Broke You was how incredibly relatable it was. It has truly helped me to see how powerful it is to let go of your past, shame, and regret.
I really appreciate Christian's vulnerability in giving examples from her own life of how she moved on from situations in her past. I've taken a lot of notes on shame, which seems to be a major thing in my life and I didn't really realize it until this past year. I would highly recommend this book to someone struggling with things that took place in the past and wanting to move on.
I found this book to be very interesting and intriguing. I would recommend this a friend because this is a book for everyone.

Revell and Netgalley provided me with a copy of Break Up With What Broke You for review:
Stop letting your past dictate your future
A breakup is typically associated with rocky road ice cream, rom-com reruns, and rough crying sessions. However, not this one! This is an invitation to liberation, a chance to discover who you truly are and let go of who you have been. It is often our past mistakes and regrets that hold us back from reaching our full potential. What is the best way to heal and move forward? You must break up with what broke you in order to find your breakthrough.
Your less can be exchanged for more.
Shame's lies can be silenced.
Your original design can be restored.
Christian Bevere explains how to overcome what has held you back with great compassion. In this book, she provides practical advice on how to overcome regret, insecurity, and shame so that you may develop a positive, godly self-image and be able to move into your future with confidence and expectation. Christian can assist you in making a clean break today. Whatever has left you feeling broken, God desires to redeem and rewrite your story.
I give Broke Up With What Broke You five out of five stars!
Lead by the title and description, I somehow totally missed the fact that the book is also a Christian book, and my relationships with Christian views are pretty strained. But I was pleasantly surprised by the book and author, who regained my belief in the possibility of Christian books being suitable for modern women and the current world.
Is this book for everyone? Still, not really, as it does have quite some excerpts from the Bible and their explanation, which didn't bother me much, personally, but those would be a distinguishing factor across other women's empowerment and self-help books for non-Christian readers. But you can see that I added "women's empowerment" here, and this is a winning point for this book and a reason for Christian women to choose it, as this book was like a breath of fresh air after being stuck in a dusty closet of old pushed-upon beliefs, with, finally, some realistic and feministic outlook on different life events and how to deal with them - break up with them, as, either way, it's not worth to be stuck.
Not my standard self-help book, but I enjoyed it, and would recommend it - 4 stars.
For author, Christian Bevere, thank you for sharing your experiences and finding the right words! I found something to relate to on a deeply personal level although our experiences were different.

I was super excited to see this book as I love the Beveres and have read books by others in the family, listened to teaching from them, etc. Christian did not disappoint! Her writing style is refreshingly candid and open, sharing kind insights and personal experience. Overall, it feels almost like having a cup of coffee with a friend or a comforting hug.
Many thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publisher for the ARC in return for my honest review.

This book was just what I needed, my soul was craving a fresh start from the trauma of my past, a trauma I could not release, even though it caused me so much pain and regret.
This will be a book I return to again and again on my healing journey.
Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this book in return for my honest review.
This was an enjoyable title. Its always a bit difficult to give a review on a religious self help title. I think its one of those reads where you can take from it what you need and leave the rest. I think it'll be a great tool for those who need to heal and move on. This would be something great in audio form as well.
I requested this book based on the Bevere last name and sure enough, a relative! The author shares good stories and offers some good insight, but I feel like nothing I read was different than other similar books.
This book will be an incredible tool and companion on many people's journeys to healing and moving on from a past filled with mistakes and regrets. Christian shares with compassion and vulnerability, as she travels on the journey with you.
