Book: Fierce Wholeness

Author: Robin Meade

Genre: Nonfiction

Release Date: March 5, 2020

When the Bible talks about the third- and fourth-generational curse, that’s so true. If the curse is not broken by you, then who will stop it dead in its tracks? Dealing with forgotten pain, things you stuff down just to survive, is serious business. But that’s what Robin Meade did. Growing up, she was criticized, put down, and stomped on—by her own family. She chose to bury her pain.

Fierce Wholeness: Finding Myself after Childhood Emotional Trauma is Robin’s story—in all of its raw and messy but authentic and beautiful transparency as she unpacks the trajectory of her life from childhood to adulthood and seeks to repair the dam that had been busted, the riverbed that had been washed away, the landscape that had been obliterated by her family of origin.

Readers who grew up in the clutches of the branches of emotional abuse will be empowered by Robin’s story because of the freedom that Jesus gives. Robin’s story is raw and authentic, and readers will be encouraged by how they too can find fierce wholeness in Christ.

About the Author

 

LXMqvKMM

Robin Meade grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but now she walks with God in the beautiful suburbs of Chicago. For nearly five years she has led and taught as part of the women’s ministry team at New Life Brookfield Church. She loves her dog and great food, but mostly she loves Jesus, and strives to encourage people to experience God’s restorative healing and for God to be glorified through it.

 

More from Robin

 

There’s a level of ‘fierce’ that we all need to reach in our journey with Christ; to be real about the journey. When you experience abuse as a child, there is a ‘normal’ way of perceiving your surroundings that’s set, and if not corrected, stays with you into adulthood. My desire for this book is that people who have suffered childhood emotional abuse know they are not alone, that they can experience of healing through a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Bible talks about being ready to give an account and running the race striving for first place and working out our salvation with fear and trembling – some of that has been lost in our Christian culture. Jesus isn’t a wimp or a doormat because he is kind and forgiving and neither should we be. I hope my story will be a blessing to many in their faith walk, to get to their level of ‘fierce’.

 

Author Interview

 

Which author has most influenced your own writing?

Charles Dickens and CS Lewis.  They both speak the truth in a profound way through their characters that is very relatable, that I feel very deeply.


Who was/is your biggest inspiration?

I would say my children.  They are all adults now.  Each one of them pushed me to be a better person, a better mother, to pursue my faith harder while they were growing and still do now as adults.


What are your hobbies?

Love puzzles – play sudoku daily
Love maps & pit bulls & making crafts
Volunteer to help – everything from event planning to making crafts to donate
Favorite games are cribbage and backgammon
Favorite color is lavender
Favorite praise songs – All the Power You Need (HillSong), When the Saints (Sarah Groves), Better Word (Leeland), Still Rolling Stones (Lauren Daigle)
I love to travel.  I think you learn the most when you are in a different setting.  My travel companion is a stuffed Moose.  I take him wherever I go.  Moose has been everywhere from Alaska to Italy.  Moose takes great pictures.  😊


Do you prefer traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks?

I like to write in books that I’m reading for study so then I need a paper copy.  But I really really like audiobooks.  I’m a kinetic learner so if I’m crocheting or cleaning while listening to an audiobook, I will remember the content longer than reading a traditional paper book.


What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

If God has given you the gift of writing, don’t ever give up. You’ll know because you will feel the tug to write. You may not believe that you have anything worth saying. That’s total crap from the enemy. Don’t believe it. If you feel the tug, write. Pray and ask God for wisdom and write some more.

I went to the same writer’s conference for 9 years before I was brave enough to put my writing ‘out there’.  At year 5, an author speaking at the conference cautioned me to not let my dreams of writing wait.  That conversation really struck me, but I wasn’t ready yet.  Other pieces of me had to heal.
