We have been seduced by half-truths and whole lies since time began. Remember the garden? In Seeing Through the Lies, author and speaker Vonda Skelton humorously addresses the disappointments women experience as they search for truth while believing a lie. Each chapter opens with amusing anecdotes from real life and ends with answers and guidance straight from God’s Word. Exploring topics such as pride, fear, motherhood, and the busyness of life, this book offers practical steps for peeling away the layers of deceit and finding the joy of living in real truth. Through honesty and humility, Vonda takes women on a hilarious journey through all things female and brings them to a soul-searching point of decision. Readers will identify with both the positive and negative examples of women in the Bible, and will be encouraged by Scripture, as well as quotes from notable men and women. Each chapter ends with five steps for exposing the lie and embracing the truth of God’s Word.

What a great book!
I loved how Vonda writes about the lies we easily buy into--through stories to which I could easily relate while laughing out loud! Her take on the Proverbs 31 woman is especially enlightening since we try to "do it all" unsuccessfully and feel like failures. With outstanding suggestions, such as getting over life being all about "me" by "Serve on Your Birthday," she shows us exactly how to live in truth instead of lies. And the biblical references at the end of each chapter give us the opportunity to dwell of God's Word, letting it soak into our being and help us live in the truth instead of the opposite. I'll be quoting from her book when I speak!
Real, real, real. I so appreciate the candidness of this author. She lets us know that she's had her own ups and downs, and continues to deal with challenges in her own life. I especially liked the chapter titled "It's a Wonderful Life?" where she helps you, the reader, learn from your own "imperfect life" story--crazy as it might be! The practical suggestions are great, and reassure you that God is bigger than any problem you might have. The gentle advice, combined with Vonda's willingness to make herself vulnerable, add up to one thing: the Ultimate Girlfriend! Once you start reading, you'll have a hard time stopping, and you'll hate to see it end--I promise!
I love Vonda's new book!
Just holding it in my hands makes me happy.
The cover is beautiful and the content, well, simply wonderful. Vonda manages to handle a number of difficult topics in a light-hearted way. Not in a shallow way, but in a way that allows you to chuckle at yourself while looking deeply at why you do the things you do. On one hand, you'll be challenged in your beliefs, on the other, you'll smile to yourself and relate with the author. Vonda offers an honest and authentic reflection of her own journey while challenging you to take account of your own.
