Seeing Through the Lies is a treasure trove of insights and resources for women of all ages. Written with the wisdom of a grandmother and wit reminiscent of Erma Bombeck, Vonda Skelton invites the reader to explore the many lies that tempt and entrap women over a lifetime; and skillfully unmasks the greatest Masquerader for who he is. This enlightening guidebook with Bible study prompts inspires us to lower our masks and walk in the light of Christ with new vision.

Was Vonda peeking behind my mask?

I thought my masks were secure, after all I'd carried them with me for years. When I sat down to read Vonda's book, I thought I knew my masks well enough and had no intention of removing these comfortable friends. Well, Vonda's honesty, vulnerability, and wisdom and wit got behind my hidden self. Little by little she pried them loose. I learned a lot in reading this book and will recommend it to my girlfriends because I'm more convinced than ever we are more beautiful (without our masks) than we allow ourselves to believe.

Seeing the Truth!

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!

This book makes me happy...

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.

The Real Deal

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!
