So many of us desire freedom – the freedom that is promised to us when we decide to follow Jesus. The freedom from the burden of our sin, the need to be “good enough”, anger, jealousy, and envy.
Even though we are believers we would be ashamed to say that we don’t always experience peace, contentment, and joy in our life. We are looking for the grace that God has so graciously given to us to be real in our life…
Breaking Pride is an eBook based on one simple truth:
In order to walk in God’s grace we need to tear down the the walls of pride.
A lot of believers, even though saved by God’s grace, are still walking in pride rather than walking in His grace. Knowing what pride is and learning to identify pride in your life is the first step to overcoming a life filled with pride.
Pride is rooted in fear and leads to anger, jealousy, and envy.
Sin isn’t keeping us from having a relationship with the Lord, it’s our pride.
So many of us long to have an authentic and REAL relationship with the Lord, and we long to have the fruit of the spirit filled in our heart. Our desire is to achieve these fruits through will power. But we do not even realize that the pride that lives within our heart is what is blocking the fruit of the spirit from living within us.
In Breaking Pride you will learn to identify different areas of pride in your life. Filled with encouragement, Breaking Pride will take you through a practical reading of what pride may look like in your life…
Let’s stop building walls of pride and start building the foundation of grace within our lives…

Pride is such a turnoff when I see it in others. So why is it so difficult to see it in myself? I think of myself as a humble person, but Breaking Pride helped me to see areas of pride I'd never uncovered, much less dealt with. I had to stop reading several times and confess to my Father that I'd been blowing it.
For me, that's the value of this little book. It's not a theological treatise. Neither does it pretend to be an exhaustive treatment of the subject. But the author's vulnerability and sincerity shine through, coaxing me to be more vulnerable about my own failings. Bixler admits, "I'm not a humble person." "I'm afraid of everything." Rather than a conquerer instructing newby soldiers about how they've won every battle, Breaking Pride is more like a fellow soldier telling me what she's learning in the midst of her battle.
I'm a better person for having read this book with an open heart. If it touches you in the same way, it's worth the read.
Churches are pretty big these days and sometimes it's difficult to make a connection with other Christians. We have to really make an effort to find a small group or Bible study in order to meet others. It's even more difficult when you're struggling with something difficult.
The Bible teaches Christians that we need this connection and I know for me, that's a BIG step. I am a private person so it really takes a lot to get me to share what I'm feeling with others, especially if I don't know them very well and not sure how they're going to react.
In Breaking Pride, the author Heather Bixler addresses some of the very same issues that many Christians struggle with, often in silence out of shame, embarrassment or refusal to see the truth about themselves. We often close ourselves off from others out of anger, fear or because we are hurt. Or we may feel that what we have to say isn't important. But when we do this, we make it very difficult to walk in the...
Breaking Pride is a compact, uncomplicated book. It is highly readable, written in a conversational style. To read it is like visiting with a trusted mentor in the faith. It won't take long to read it all the way through, and you should do that as a start. After that, you should read through each chapter devotionally. You could read and pray through one chapter each weekday for two weeks. It would be a good way to internalize the principles and start using the guidance for dealing with pride.
Each of the ten short chapters addresses an individual facet of our battle with pride. We think we know all about pride when we quote the proverb, "Pride goes before a fall." Sadly that is only a glimpse of the destructive power of pride. It is easy to forget that Satan uses pride to draw us away from a life of service to others in order to focus on self. Pride builds walls between us and other people and between us and God. There are natural reasons for us to lean on pride as...
