Lustrea has heard heart-breaking stories through the years, and those stories have intersected with her own story of heartbreak. God lovingly weaves these stories into a tapestry to be used for His glory.
Lustrea’s story means nothing without the impact of all of the other stories she has heard. Sometimes the church tries to sweep the hard stories under the carpet. In a way we have being led to believe that the hard parts of life shouldn’t be shared, but when you allow your stories to become known, start to interact with the stories of others, and then allow God to work in and through your life, something miraculous starts to happen.In What Women Tell Me, Anita Lustrea tells her story along with the difficult stories of other women.
For a long time, she listened to those who said “you can only hurt others by sharing your wounds.” When she realized that was a lie, she saw for the first time that through her wounds, she could be an agent of healing in the body of Christ.
