When you write a book, you never know what’s going to resonate most deeply with readers. I certainly didn’t know. But I recently learned what passages were most highlighted in my ebook and now I know. The results are somewhat surprising and certainly fascinating. I’d love to share them with you.
After compiling the top 10 passages from Life After Lust, it is astonishing that 7 out of the 10 were from the same place – Chapter 4: The Lie of Lust! (Ironically, I had a recent dream about Chapter 4). This was clearly people’s favorite chapter. This discovery delighted me because I wrote that chapter specifically for this book, knowing there was a need for a clear definition of lust.
Two of the 10 most popular passages were from Chapter 3: Don’t Be a Victim to Sexual Addiction. This is meaningful to me because I took an article I published through XXXChurch, based on thousands of dollars of personal growth classes and experience, and very thoughtfully, with the guidance of others, crafted it into what it is today. Personally, I believe this is the most powerful chapter, with the most life-changing implications.
One more thing…I thought it would be fun to create quote pictures to represent these popular passages. These will be posted here, in my newsletter, on my Facebook page, and on Twitter. Will you please share them on those platforms, Pinterest, Instagram, etc to help spread the hopeful message of Life After Lust? Also, I would love to hear what your favorite quotes were from the book. It would make my day if you shared those with me.
Without further ado, here are the greatest hits of Life After Lust (in reverse order, to heighten anticipation), based on reader’s highlights. I hope you have as much fun reading these as I did creating them.
