    On Friday January 23rd and Saturday January 24th 2015. I had the opportunity to hear Renee speak in Tyler Texas. If it had not been for my church Canadian County Cowboy Church of Yukon Oklahoma Sponsoring me I would never have been able to be in her presence and God’s presence. I have been unemployed for 5 months and my church has been helping me pay my rent and bills. They paid for the conference as well as my hotel room. I am truly blessed by my Cowboy Church and our Women Of Faith Bible study. They knew I needed this and God knew I needed to hear her.
    On Friday I had the pleasure of meeting Renee and thank her for telling a story that I had been living most of my life and I am 55 now. The next day I heard her speak again and it was so beautiful to hear her speak I did not want her to stop nor did I want to leave I would have sat there all that day and the next to hear her speak of having a confident heart . I had saved up a little money $20 to be exact from cleaning a friends house. I told her it was for my trip as spending money and she understood. I knew after hearing Renee that was where my $20 was going to be spent on her book. I met her again and she remembered me from the night before. I want to say that I was truly blessed when she signed my book and that she remembered me. In my life I have just be very shy and quiet. My life was defined to me as a very small child and I always wanted to break free from my family and become who I knew God wanted me to be but my family would not let me. In all those years I suffered but with Renee I will no longer suffer I am redefining myself. I have 2 grown children and 8 grand children. I have suffered from major depression and bi-polar disease. My children hardly have anything to do with me this past Christmas I spent serving at the Red Andrews Christmas Dinner in OKC I wanted to help the less fortunate people in our city. It was and is the most gratifying thing I have ever done and I will return year after year. One of the reasons I did this is my children do not want to spend that time with me they don’t like the person I have become in all these years struggling to raise them on my own I have become a very angry person. But GOD BLESSED ME WITH RENEE AND HER BOOK AND I AM SO THANKFUL FOR THE OPPPORTUNITY I HAD. I HOPE I WILL AGAIN BE ABLE TO MEET WITH RENEE AND I WOULD LOVE TO TELL MY STORY TO HER. GOD BLESS RENEE AND MY CANADIAN COUNTY COWBOY CHURCH FOR A LIFE CHANGING OPPORTUNITY THEY HAVE GIVEN ME.

  2. I was excited to read a Confident Heart, and I’m not saying I’m done yet, but I got to the part of the book where you talk about healing the past, and my heart dropped because I have done that over and over in my life and I am in the lowest place ever, with my character defects raging, trapped in sinful behaviors and feeling a lack of victory.

    I’m a bipolar addict, going through a horrible divorce from a Christian man. My children hate me, and I’m afraid they will never have a relationship with me.

    So, when would I have victory over these character defects….healed from my childhood hurts….

    I related so much to what you said about doubt. I can get behind that.
