Kary Oberbrunner’s latest book, Your Secret Name: Discovering Who God Created You to Be, just released and I can’t wait for my copy to arrive. This is my review that I posted on Amazon:
“We see brokenness all around us. Living east of Eden, we desperately attempt to quiet the ache in our souls with whatever we can find…work, drugs, sex, religion, politics, family. But the ache remains and we feel more and more broken and isolated. Like we are the only one who is hurting. That no one would love us if they knew how we really were…what we were REALLY like.
But ‘you must accept who you are in order to discover who you were meant to be.’
In Your Secret Name, Kary Oberbrunner helps us make sense of the ache by reminding us that we have a Creator who is crazy about us and has placed us in a bigger story. Rather than deal with the symptoms of our brokenness, he gently exposes the root.”
In working through the 12 steps in recovery…especially step 4…God gently and lovingly introduced me to myself. It was a painful and gut-wrenching process, but one that left me staring wide-eyed and God’s wonderfully scandalous grace. After watching the video trailer for Your Secret Name, I am reminded that before we can discover our Secret Name, we must first confess our Given Name. It also helps us understand our divine wound that helps us step fully into our new identity.
As I was writing this post, Kary announced that for a limited time you can get the Your Secret Name audiobook absolutely FREE. Click here for the details. Also, you can take an online test to determine your Secret Name by clicking here.
What is your “divine wound” and how is God using that to reveal your “Secret Name”?
