"Janell Rardon's new book Stronger Every Day reads like a letter from a trusted friend. Her love and care shine through, along with an effective synthesis of the last fifty years of psychological and clinical wisdom, not to mention many eternal and biblical truths. She has structured this offering as a toolbox, gently introducing each new self-care tool with stories from her own life as well as quotes from many of the leading scholars and researchers of psychology and personal growth. The overriding message of the book is about gentleness--leading ourselves from the pit of shame, self-judgment, and limitation to the heaven of self-forgiveness, empowerment, and connection. Janell speaks with authority as one who has brought both herself and her clients through this journey, and now she passes on the keys to this process for all to use. Her Heartlift method puts biblical truth alongside a solid grounding in affective, cognitive, and behavioral neuroscience. One is left with the impression that timeless wisdom has been proven and brought to life with modern scientific research. I am very pleased to see her work reach a larger audience, and I am sure that she will uplift and inspire many people with this well-written and enjoyable book."

"Janell Rardon's book Stronger Every Day beautifully weaves Scripture, science, literature, and contemplative practices into a tapestry of tools to move us from a 'history of hurts' to a 'vision of victory.' Having worked in the field of child protection and family strengthening for nearly thirty years, I can't wait for our staff to read this book together to learn and grow stronger for the sake of the children and families we serve. Emotionally healthy adults serve others better. Janell spent time with us in Thailand a few years ago, speaking at a conference to women from over thirty nations. Her authenticity and biblical insights inspired and challenged us to be the best healthy self we could be. Her new book does that as well."
Kimberly Quinley, executive director, Step Ahead Foundation, Thailand
