A couple of years ago I had a series on this blog called “Core Lies” all about the lies that live deep down in our hearts – the ones with deep roots, the ones that often times dictate how we respond to situations/conversations/life.
I have since drafted that series in order to polish it up and turn it into an ebook. I am looking forward to putting this information to print because it is so valuable, helpful, and hopeful – it literally changed my life. I had learned about core lies from some wise mentors in college, but I could never find any concrete material on the subject. Thus, I gathered my notes and all I had learned/experienced on the topic and put it to form.
I know that all of us wrestle with core lies (most of the time we don’t know it); I also know the importance of figuring out what they are and dealing with them so that we do not live out of them and/or pass them onto our children.
“Deal with and repent of your own “core lies” so you don’t demand from and damage your child as much. To determine your “core lies,” watch for things that make you angry, anxious, or depressed. The core lies are usually under there. Whatever goals we’ve created because of our core lies have to go. For me, I wanted everyone to think I was a good mom. I had to let go of what other people thought of me because it was affecting how I dealt with my girls.” -Cathy Bowman, Navigator staff
Here is where you come in.
I’d love to hear some personal stories from those of you who have dealt with a core lie and believed truth. For those who have no idea how to figure out your core lie, or what a core lie really is, what questions do you have about the topic in general? Any other suggestions you have about ebooks, throw them my way! Thank you!
I appreciate your feedback so very much!

P.S. A reader reminded me of the book by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Lies Women Believe. Your core lies are significantly different than the concrete lies Nancy lays out in her book. While her book is a good resource (and probably super helpful – its been awhile since I’ve read through it), core lies falls into a different category. :)
