    About the book

    Bengay. Increasing hair loss. And pretty wigs. A large number of people struggle with low self-esteem and self-hatred. For singer-songwriter Carol Chisolm, this identity consumed her. Living in the shadows of shame, fear, and captivity, she was a victim of alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that resulted in hair loss.

    For thirty years she tried every hair-growing product available, and into adulthood, she hid her increasing baldness underneath fancy wigs. Not even her family was allowed to see her bald shame. Until one day, after years-long inner battle, she emerged with a sheer confidence that only God could give, revealing her baldness as a gift from God. She realized that her identity came not from hair products and wigs but from a deep, inner peace, joy, and freedom.

    If you question your identity, your worth, your purpose, Breaking the Shadows will help you

    • accept your flaws and imperfections,
    • let go of insecurities caused by perceived flaws and imperfections,
    • accept that you are fearfully and wonderfully made by God,
    • understand that God doesn’t make any mistakes, and
    • walk in liberty understanding who you are in Christ.

    This book will show you how to move out from behind the shadows as it gently and courageously leads you on a freedom path, with action steps to reclaim your inner self. Like Carol, you too can lift your voice and sing, becoming the beautiful, thriving soul you are meant to be.
