The LAMB Ministries Self-help books were written to be read one after the other. However, each book is a stand-alone and can be read independently of each other. For the best reading experience, we suggest reading them in order: 
Book #1: How Did We Become Angry? 
Book #2: Why Did We Blame? 
Soon to release, Book #3: What is the Shame Game?


Having the Lord lead me to found LAMB Ministries in 1988, I realized after the publication of several of Naomi books, that she is a fictional prototype of the hundreds, perhaps thousands of traumatized and abused women I've been blessed to mentor since believing in Yeshua (Jesus). Thought I studied to be a Chemical Dependency - Lifestyle Disorder Counselor who was offered a job at the psychiatric hospital I interned at before I completed my courses, I believe it was God's perfect timing to uproot our family and have me meet people who dearly loved the Lord.

Having asked Jesus to forgive me and made Him the Lord of my life before we moved, I attended church at a friend's invitation. Since my daughter, who was also a believer,liked the church, we decided to go there. My friend suggested I speak with Pastor Hurt. I meet with him and discovered I had a testimony! I asked him what Bible he used. On the way home I bought three; for my daughter, me, and my yet unbelieving husband. Within a week, I'd read the entire NIV Bible footnotes and all.

The following Sunday my daughter and I went early so we could attend Bible study. I attended a women's Bible study. When it was time for prayer, one woman shared that a lady friend of hers was a 'white knuckle alcoholic'. I told her about my studies and offered to give her a book once unpacked. Later that day, I got a phone call and agreed to meet with the woman. A month later, ten women had sought me out. LAMB Ministries was born when Pastor Hurt appointed me the head of Women's Lay-Counseling for our church. Each LAMB Ministry book is a short foundational teaching taken from this in-depth year long course.

                 God's Word & prayer healed me. Sharing what I learned helps others!

5-Star Amazing Review 4 No Other Choice ~ Now 99 Cents!

My thanks to Beverly Lynnt for her 5-Star review! “Emotionally gripping, fascinating glimpse to a little-known period of history, eye opening! I have to say that this book and its sequel are some of the most intriguing reading I've experienced in a long while. It is the kind of story that makes you "walk a mile in someone else's moccasins." It is fiction, but based on history. That's one of the reasons I love these books by this author so much.

First, the author prefaces the piece by asking us to imagine "what if" our beliefs were what threatened our family's very lives. How would we live to survive? Suppose we saw our families and friends all around us killed or expelled or mistreated because of their similar beliefs? What would you do as a daughter of the house? Would you go into hiding? Live a lie? Fear for your life? Sacrifice for your family's safety? With this mindset established, Naomi is introduced to us just as she sets foot in immigration as a 15-year-old girl, about to be deported because the family that was supposed to support her suddenly refuses to sponsor her in America. But she is rescued. The question presented in this book is this: was that rescue a blessing or a curse? You have to read this story to find out.

This book and book two used to be one story. So you need to purchase the second book to find the resolution to the first, which ends on a mild cliff hanger. Fortunately, book two picks up about five minutes after the first ends. Since this is a series, I didn't mind that so much. But I feel you should know this and prepare to purchase both books together. In spite of that, book one is complete in that it encapsulates a complete idea and develops it thoroughly.

I enjoy getting to know a subculture of America I have never become acquainted with, in this case the Spanish Harlem area, or Harlem as it's known today. The author uses this setting to make the surrounding circumstances Naomi finds herself in alive and familiar. You get to know and somewhat understand her community, watch how Naomi sacrifices her life goals to play an important part of the barrio and in the lives of its citizens. The author writes this so well I felt as if I were part of the community.

Naomi herself is going through a transition. The reader becomes privy to her inner turmoil as she struggles to find her place in life. Then the author adds a sweet romance in the final chapters that brings all the circumstances to a head, adding slight tension in Naomi's character development.

I highly recommend this book, and of course, the entire series. It appears there is more to come, so I am looking forward to reading all the books based on how much I enjoyed the first two. I hope you will grow to love this series too.”
