Grace Rehab

Introducing GRACE REHAB

GR Combo reducedMeet Grace Rehab, my latest book, and follow up to Grace Intervention.  I’d also like you to meet the Grace Rehab Study Guide, a companion book for groups or personal reflection. Since every author feels like their books are their babies, I’m excited for you to meet my latest.  I think this will give you a good idea of what’s inside.

From the Back Cover: 

You’re stupid. Ugly. Too short, tall, skinny, fat, dark, light, slow. You’ll never amount to anything.  you don’t measure up. You’re nothing. not good enough. I don’t way you. You’re a failure. Damaged goods. Dirty. Loser. Pervert. Unholy. Bad. 

Ouch! There are as many labels as there are abusive parents, schoolyard bullies, mean girls, and self-righteous preachers to slap them on you.

The two most important labels in your life are how you label yourself and how you label God. These labels create self-fulfilling prophecies. They determine how you relate to yourself, to others, and to God.

Who Are YouThe good news is that God stands ready to peel away a lifetime of demeaning labels. He wants to label you the exact same way he labels Jesus: Beautiful. Accepted. Beloved. Righteous. Powerful. Good.

In GRACE REHAB, Bill Giovannetti guides you through a total transformation of your inner labels. With humor and insight, he explores 17 Riches in Christ to help you shed your self-defeating labels and embrace with confidence the joyful person you were meant to be.

Also available: the GRACE REHAB STUDY GUIDE, with questions for personal reflection and group interaction, wherever books are sold.

From the Dedication: 

This book is dedicated to every survivor, every courageous soul, and every hero wiling to resist the world’s bullies, mean girls, abusers, users, exploiters, and unloving parents.

It is for every person who refuses to be a victim.

For all those struggling to shed the demeaning labels of the past.

For those great ones fighting to name themselves as God names them.

You inspire me.

You inspire us all.

Dispelling the Myth of the Magic Pastor

flightattendant.jpegIf you want to see an instant eye roll, ask a flight attendant if he/she knows Sherry or Diane or whatever flight attendant you might know. “Oh, so you’re a flight attendant? How cool. Do you know my cousin Sherry? She’s a flight attendant too!”

Instant eye roll of disdain.

What, there are only about 300,000 flight attendants, so the odds are HUGE that since you’re one, you know the one I know. Continue reading

HeavenQuake… (on LOIS PETERSON)

There was a high magnitude quake in the evangelistic spiritual realm over Chicago today. At its epicenter was the passing away of one of the finest evangelists I have ever known.

I first heard the name of Lois Peterson disdainfully–almost as if the speaker was spitting. She was not popular among the old guard at my church.

  • “I can’t believe that she lets people smoke at her Bible study.”
  • “A woman shouldn’t teach men.”
  • “She’s not under anybody’s authority.”
  • “She doesn’t believe in the old sin nature.”
  • “Her ear rings are too big.”
  • “She said ‘damn’.”

Others despised her for these reasons. The rest of us loved her for them.
