When a Woman Overcomes Life's Hurts

Discover the Healing and Wholeness God Has for You

Cindi McMenamin

Author Cindi McMenamin’s bestseller When Women Walk Alone (more than 100,000 copies sold) confirms her gift for encouraging women who are journeying through difficult seasons. In her newest book, she offers help for women who are dealing with wounds from unresolved issues in their past.

When a Woman Overcomes Life’s Hurts explores the kinds of hurt women experience and offers gracious, biblical counsel on how and where to find healing. Cindi shares the faulty thinking that often accompanies life’s wounds and replaces it with truths every woman needs to know about how God views her. She takes women from

  • feeling insignificant to realizing how much the Lord loves them
  • feeling undesirable to seeing their true beauty
  • feeling they’re not good enough to recognizing how special they are

This is a book filled with grace, redemption, and transformation—leading women toward a renewed focus on God, a resurgence of inner joy, and better relationships with others.

A Word from the Author

"After nearly 30 years of discipling and ministering to women, I wanted to put a book into a woman's hands that will help her move beyond her hurts and into a place where she can pour hope and encouragement into others. Based on interviews of more than 50 women, and scriptural principles that are tried and true, this book contains stories of God's incredible healing and shows a woman how she can take the bitter in her own life and turn it into a blessing. The application questions at the end of each chapter as well as the 'Ten Steps to Healing and Wholeness,' Self Assessment Test and 'Scriptural Encouragement for Hurting Hearts' are valuable resources for any woman who wants to move beyond her pain and into a life of fulfillment and blessing."

“Your insights and stories of other women are helping me so much right now. This book couldn't have come at a better time!”
Jami Hemund, Hot Springs, AR


“Wow...when I sat down to read this book, I thought I would buzz through a few chapters to get the feel of it. To my delight I have gobbled up every word, breathed deeply at every question, and paused to take in God's goodness. This book is phenomenal and I cannot wait to take the ladies in my ministry through it.”
Lisa Pacheco, women's ministry director, Calvary Chapel, Oceanside, California

When a Woman Overcomes Life's Hurts ministered to me from the very first page. As a woman who has been a leader of a women's ministry for over five years, I thought I was only reading for the women in my ministry. The fact of the matter is this book ministered to me in so many areas of my own life. I know without a shadow of a doubt that every woman who reads it will be blessed. Through these pages, I am truly inspired that my biggest storm will end up becoming my greatest victory!
—Terri Smalls, Powerful Praying Women Ministry, Charlotte, North Carolina

Deb Sagisser, Women's Ministry Director, Hope Church, Oakdale, Minnesota

“Cindi McMenamin has written an important work. There are too many women who miss the victory Christ offers through His healing love. Cindi’s book gives direction, hope, and practical advice.  I plan to use this text in my ministry.”
—Debbie Patrick, Mount Airy Bible Church
