Product Description

Product Description

Shhhh…. Is there something about you that you hope no one else ever finds out? You’re not alone. Everyone has secrets—hurts, abuses, bad habits, fears. Big or small, secrets can destroy you from the inside out. The good news is that confession is more powerful than secrets—or the fear that keeps you from telling them.
 
In What’s Your Secret? Aaron Stern shows you
 
·      the powerful roots of secret-keeping
·      the difference between “good” secrets and “bad” secrets
·      what confession is (and isn’t)
·      why letting go of secrets is so much more enjoyable than living in fear
·      how to strategically live a secret-free life
 
Using personal stories and anonymous confessions from others, Aaron will remind you of the beauty of forgiveness and the joy that comes from living in the freedom God has always wanted you to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some real Holy Spirit stuff Jan. 17 2012
By Michael Swift - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm 24, and this book has been like a wrap around encouragement from God... and that's because God's already been doing the very stuff Pastor Aaron has been talking about in his book in my life over the past three years! Such as getting rid of the sin and shame and torment from years of rebellion through confessing my sins to Jesus, believing His Word, and confessing the secrets to my mom as well who loved me through them and who helped lead me into the healing and acceptance Jesus gives. Now this whole process has been long and slow and painful, but oh so worthwhile as I feel like a new redeemed man, who now has to keep short accounts with God, but isn't dragging that U-Haul of baggage around anymore! So when I read Pastor Aaron's book, instead of it unlocking a locked up closet of secrets, it was like God showing off saying, "See how I can really heal you deeply after all ... no matter how messed up you started off !?!"

So thanks a whole lot Pastor Aaron for writing this book, it is some real Holy Spirit stuff that I'm sure is helping tons out there bringing us to God's healing at the Cross and the ongoing light-living from there on out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book Aug. 12 2011
By Nathaniel LaClaire - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Do you have a secret? Something that you've kept in the dark and hope never sees the light of day? Each of us has at least one, but author and pastor Aaron Stern says that secrets can destroy us. In What's Your Secret?, Stern explores the topic of confession. Using scripture, personal stories, and stories from others, he leads readers on a path toward the joy that is only found in living as God intended, free from secrets and complete in His forgiveness.

This is an excellent book. Unlike popular self-help books on the topic, What's Your Secret? doesn't claim to give a simple solution. The book begins by guiding you through the process of confession (to God and others) and discusses what real confession is all about. It then proceeds to introduce readers to what it looks like to live out in the open. Chapters cover "unpacking" your baggage, making things right, and many other topics related to healing and living life free from secrets. Along the way, the author has provided anonymous confessions that he has collected, reminding us that we're not alone - the secrets that we think are so terrible and unique are close to, if not identical to, those of others.

What's Your Secret? is encouraging, insightful, motivational, uplifting, and inspiring. If that seems like hyperbole, it's not. If it seems like I picked up a thesaurus and copied every word under a single heading, well, I didn't, but maybe I am being repetitious. It's intentional. You have to read this book. Aaron Stern wants you to live in freedom. God wants you to live in freedom. The road will be difficult, but with this book as a guide, you can do it.

The audiobook is read by the author, which I often enjoy. This case was no different. Hearing the author's words in his own voice adds authenticity to the reading. The recording and production quality were also very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Author Shows Potential July 27 2011
By A. Wencl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What's Your Secret? by Aaron Stern is a short book about a somewhat neglected topic: confession. He covers confession broadly, but he does differentiate between sharing secrets and confession. Also, as I expected given the biblical emphasis, Stern's main topic is the confession of sin.

After a short introduction, Stern gets right to the heart of the matter--sin is an offense against God and we need to confess it to Him. He also speaks of confessing to others and knowing who to confess to, but the key point was well-made, the greatest impact of failing to confess sin is on our relationship with God.

The second half of the book serves as both an encouragement and challenge to the reader. Stern doesn't want to give us a self-help, make-me-feel-better book. His desire is to be biblical.

Stern also narrates his own book. He can be heard taking a breath before each sentence, and his variation in voice sometimes makes it obvious where individual recordings were pieced together. He's obviously not a trained audio book narrator, but he's still pretty decent.

The last chapter felt more like an appendix to an already short book, but Stern's first work shows potential. The first half of the book was the most valuable, and confession is a practice we ought to be in the habit of doing.

It shows great insights on the inner life and its connection with the body of Christ.
