A Life Set Free was carried in my heart for years before I finally had the courage to write it. It was written under a mosquito net in China. The final editing took place at a guest house in Israel. It is filled with stories from God sparing my life to leading me on incredible adventures as an ambassador with “The Department of Eternal Affairs” to so many cool places ~ Haiti, a jungle village in Belize, the Ghetto in NYC, behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and Romania, Israel, China, Thailand, Mexico, Canada, Africa, and Greece. It is a story of God’s love and faithfulness.

Why did I write this book? Because I had to. I wrote it for me…but God wanted me to share it with the world…with you…so you could be encouraged and know that God loves you…more than you can possibly imagine.
A Life Set Free is written by Rena Groot. This is her testimony. Her words are real and they flow so nicely. I loved getting to know her story. Some of the things that she went through as a child were heartbreaking. She reminds us that God never leaves or forsakes us. I have read several of this author's books and it was nice to get to know her through a more personal level.
The author tells her story, along with reminding us about God's goodness and grace. She balances the raw emotion out with God's truth. To read a story about her transformation through God was a nice refresh.
Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
