Each one of us is born with a “God code”—a strand of spiritual DNA that hardwires us to know and serve something—or someone—bigger than ourselves. But even if we recognize this truth, why do we often feel discouraged and defeated? Why is it so hard to move beyond the pain of our past? Why does it seem impossible to break the cycle of dysfunction and wrong choices?
Respected Bible teacher Kasey Van Norman understands what it means to be a prisoner of the past. Refined by the fires of suffering and heartache, Kasey is an inspiring example of God’s grace and intervention in a life that seemed beyond redemption. In Named by God, Kasey shows what it means to find our true identity in Christ, to live the surrendered life of the redeemed, and to find life by losing it.
Are you ready to dive into the depths of God’s grace and discover the exhilarating freedom that only he can bring? Are you ready to stop talking about a life filled with hope and peace and start living it out on a daily basis?
Join Kasey Van Norman on this transforming journey and learn what it means to move beyond past hurts, bring power into your present circumstances, and ignite a victorious faith for your future.
In many ways, Kasey Van Norman has suffered more heartbreak than one woman can bear. Growing up, she endured her parents’ divorce, date rape, and years of addiction to sex, cutting, and eating disorders. As an adult, Kasey has endured a painful miscarriage; the heartbreak (and restoration) of infidelity; a cancer diagnosis; rejection by her friends, church, and community; and her mother’s death from cancer. But at the end of this twisting path of sorrow, Kasey walked out of the wilderness and into a place of God’s merciful and miraculous healing and redemption. In Named by God, Kasey shares her story of God’s infinite grace and compassion so that others might learn from her experience as they encounter a depth of Jesus like never before!

This book is like a fountain of good news for any who may be feeling for whatever reason that God does not have a place in His heart for them. Kasey has just the right approach to make all feel welcome into the kingdom of God. She makes the reader aware of all her struggles, failures, denials and how God in His love lifted her back up and put her in place to be a vessel worthy of His use.
This is a book that will bless you as you turn the pages and realize the love God has for Kasey and for all who have sinned in various ways that cause separation from God. You will have realization that her story, perhaps more extreme than some people's stories by human evaluation, is relevant to all people. The story of Paul in the Bible, the one who declares himself to be chief of sinners, in some ways touches us all in our human way of thinking that, "Well, if God can save him then there is hope for me." Kasey lets herself be used in like manner in order for people, women especially, to feel the power of hope in salvation through this unequaled God who loves sinners enough to save them through the blood of Jesus
I received this book through the author and publisher without obligation to give a good review. I honestly believe in the message of this book and think it will be an excellent Bible study for many women, especially for those who are in their childbearing years. This book goes deep to show the love of God which conquers all.
