Seeing through the Lies Unmasking the Myths Women Believe by Vonda Skelton

Back cover: We have been seduced by half-truths and lies since time began. Remember the garden? In Seeing Through the Lies author and speaker Vonda Skelton humorously addresses the disappointments women experience as they search for the truth while believing the lies. Each chapter opens with amusing anecdotes from real life and ends with answers and guidance straight from God’s Word. Exploring topics such as pride, fear, motherhood and busyness of life, Vonda offers practical steps for peeling away the layers of deceit and finding the joy of living in real truth. Through honesty and humility, Vonda will take you on a hilarious journey through all things female stopping off for some soul searching along the way. You will identify with both the positive and negative examples of women in the Bible and will be encouraged by Scripture and quotes from notable men and women. Each chapter ends with five steps for exposing the lie and embracing the truth of God’s Word.

It’s me here: I have just started reading this study and so far have found it very encouraging. If nothing else, I know I am not alone. I love the real life examples of how we fall into believing the lies and half-truths we tell ourselves. With wit, and humor Vonda leads us to understand that with Scripture, prayer and truly changing ourselves from the inside out we can be who God sees us to be instead of what we have chosen to believe for ourselves. I love the daily scripture reading at the end of each chapter and at the end of the book there are group discussion question.

Hi Donna,
Thank you for the kind words about my book! And it thrills me that you said the book helped you see that you're not alone. That was one of my goals with writing the book--that women would know that none of us ever "arrive," that we're constantly a work in progress, and that Satan will continually try to deceieve us with his lies, no matter how long we follow the Lord!
I hope you find encouragement as you continue through the book.
And in case you or your readers are interested, I love making free speaker-phone visits with groups who use the book for their groups study. All they need to do is email me through my website. (
(Oh, and BTW, I'm in your neck of the woods this week in the Houston area.;-)
Blessings, my friend!
