Product Description

Product Description

So many of us desire freedom – the freedom that is promised to us when we decide to follow Jesus. The freedom from the burden of our sin, the need to be “good enough”, anger, jealousy, and envy.

Even though we are believers we would be ashamed to say that we don’t always experience peace, contentment, and joy in our life. We are looking for the grace that God has so graciously given to us to be real in our life…

Breaking Pride is an eBook based on one simple truth:

In order to walk in God’s grace we need to tear down the the walls of pride.

A lot of believers, even though saved by God’s grace, are still walking in pride rather than walking in His grace. Knowing what pride is and learning to identify pride in your life is the first step to overcoming a life filled with pride.

Pride is rooted in fear and leads to anger, jealousy, and envy.

Sin isn’t keeping us from having a relationship with the Lord, it’s our pride.

So many of us long to have an authentic and REAL relationship with the Lord, and we long to have the fruit of the spirit filled in our heart. Our desire is to achieve these fruits through will power. But we do not even realize that the pride that lives within our heart is what is blocking the fruit of the spirit from living within us.

In Breaking Pride you will learn to identify different areas of pride in your life. Filled with encouragement, Breaking Pride will take you through a practical reading of what pride may look like in your life…

Let’s stop building walls of pride and start building the foundation of grace within our lives…

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped Me to Uncover Hidden Pride March 13 2012
By J. Steve Miller - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pride is such a turnoff when I see it in others. So why is it so difficult to see it in myself? I think of myself as a humble person, but Breaking Pride helped me to see areas of pride I'd never uncovered, much less dealt with. I had to stop reading several times and confess to my Father that I'd been blowing it.

For me, that's the value of this little book. It's not a theological treatise. Neither does it pretend to be an exhaustive treatment of the subject. But the author's vulnerability and sincerity shine through, coaxing me to be more vulnerable about my own failings. Bixler admits, "I'm not a humble person." "I'm afraid of everything." Rather than a conquerer instructing newby soldiers about how they've won every battle, Breaking Pride is more like a fellow soldier telling me what she's learning in the midst of her battle.

I'm a better person for having read this book with an open heart. If it touches you in the same way, it's worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth - Prayer - Grace March 15 2012
By Maximum Verbosity - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Churches are pretty big these days and sometimes it's difficult to make a connection with other Christians. We have to really make an effort to find a small group or Bible study in order to meet others. It's even more difficult when you're struggling with something difficult.

The Bible teaches Christians that we need this connection and I know for me, that's a BIG step. I am a private person so it really takes a lot to get me to share what I'm feeling with others, especially if I don't know them very well and not sure how they're going to react.

In Breaking Pride, the author Heather Bixler addresses some of the very same issues that many Christians struggle with, often in silence out of shame, embarrassment or refusal to see the truth about themselves. We often close ourselves off from others out of anger, fear or because we are hurt. Or we may feel that what we have to say isn't important. But when we do this, we make it very difficult to walk in the Spirit of Christ.

Heather shares her own feelings, fears and hurts and provides the scripture to back it up. She reminds us that in order to break our pride, we need to let go of the control that consumes us and the desire to portray a certain image to everyone around us. As we do this, we'll begin to form deep and true relationships with friends, family and most importantly, with God. It's not our sin that keeps us from Him, but our pride.

This is an uplifting book written with a very sweet and peaceful tone. While reading this book, I began to feel a sense of peace knowing that there are so many other people out there, all feeling the same way but afraid to share it.

How do we break pride? By Truth, Prayer and Grace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everybody Needs to Break Down Pride March 23 2012
By Katherine Harms - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Breaking Pride is a compact, uncomplicated book. It is highly readable, written in a conversational style. To read it is like visiting with a trusted mentor in the faith. It won't take long to read it all the way through, and you should do that as a start. After that, you should read through each chapter devotionally. You could read and pray through one chapter each weekday for two weeks. It would be a good way to internalize the principles and start using the guidance for dealing with pride.

Each of the ten short chapters addresses an individual facet of our battle with pride. We think we know all about pride when we quote the proverb, "Pride goes before a fall." Sadly that is only a glimpse of the destructive power of pride. It is easy to forget that Satan uses pride to draw us away from a life of service to others in order to focus on self. Pride builds walls between us and other people and between us and God. There are natural reasons for us to lean on pride as protection and defense. As you read this book, you will learn both the issues underlying the problem and biblical principles that will help you mature in humility and service. The verses at the head of each chapter sum up each principle in the process of breaking your pride without breaking you.

Breaking Pride is a valuable book for anyone who is serious about living faithfully Christ's call to love others as we love ourselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars An aid to leading life with solid relationships and greater intimacy with God Jan. 31 2013
By Valerie Caraotta - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
There will not be too many admitting to one another that they suffer from pride and certainly not any that will claim pride is a dominant ruling force in their lives. To deal with issues of pride we must confront them head on. Author Heather Bixler, in her e- book Breaking Pride lays out areas in our lives that result in pride and then provides remedies to rid one of this bondage through Jesus Christ.
Do you find yourself hiding behind a facade afraid of sharing your true self with others? Whether it be fear, the need to be perfect in front of others, or the desire to protect and defend while being in control, the danger of hanging onto pride is costly. It is what the Bible refers to as leading to destruction.

Author Bixler will guide you to understand the necessity of total devotion to God and the Word, along with prayer and a life filled with faith and forgiveness as remedies to pride. Because pride is enveloped in lies it needs to be broken and once done, will avail strength to walk in the Spirit.

When you are finished with this e- book you will discover that the true test of your affections will determine whether pride survives with your desires or whether you desire God instead. The inevitable fact is that we can fool those around us but never can we fool God in our self righteous declarations and smiles. Even truer, and as Author Bixler will share, it can be a lonely road ahead when we allow no one to truly know us personally and intimately.

Open your heart today to truth that will set you free and liberate you to be all you can in Christ while forming relationships beyond the surface level.
