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.
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.

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.
Practical and heart piercing reflection questions at the end of each chapter.
