What Women Tell Me: Finding Freedom from the Secrets We Keep
Author: Anita Lustrea

Anita Lustrea, Co-host and Executive Producer of Midday Connection. “Sometimes the church tries to sweep the hard stories under the carpet. Somehow we’ve gotten the impression the hard things of life shouldn’t be shared. But when you allow your stories to become known, start to interact with the stories of others and then allow God to work in and through your life, something miraculous starts to happen.”
