Author Jason Frenn uses his family background of divorce, alcoholism and conflict to drive home the message in his new book, “Power to Reinvent Yourself: How to Break the Destructive Patterns in Your Life.”
According to a news release, Frenn’s mother and father separated when he was three and divorced when he was nine. His mother struggled with alcoholism, and his father worked as a bartender for more than 50 years.
His mother remarried a man 32 years older than she was, and she was his sixth wife. For a short time during their courtship, he did production work for many of the studios in Hollywood and occasionally for the adult film industry.
Out of this tumultuous environment, according to the news release, emerged a committed family man and missionary-evangelist who has spoken to crowds totaling more than 3 million in Latin America and the United States.
“In Power to Reinvent Yourself,” Frenn walks readers, particularly ones from dysfunctional backgrounds, through the steps needed to make dramatic changes in their lives with God’s help.
“Whether you come from a wonderful family with a rich heritage or from a dysfunctional home, God offers you the power to reinvent your life,” the news release says Frenn writes in his upcoming book. “Without the power of God, breaking the cycle of sinful patterns is nearly impossible. But with God, all things are possible (Matt. 19:26).”
The news release says Frenn outlines six essential steps for readers in reinventing themselves. They are discovering their why, changing their perceptions, breaking the cycle of destructive behavior, forming Godly habits, choosing to forgive and overcoming with the help of others.
Frenn encourages readers to examine their own lives, come to some real conclusions about their behavior and motivation and allow God to do a great and mighty work in them.
“Change starts when we open our hearts and ask for help,” the news release reports Frenn writes. “Once we come to a place where we say, ‘God, I need your help to change,’ He can begin the process of rebuilding our lives. God wants to help you overcome destructive patterns. He wants to help you get past the things that hold you back. But His work begins only when you give Him permission.”
In concluding his book, the release says, Frenn issues a word of advice. “Expect delays in the process of reinventing yourself. Changing your life is not done overnight. Many of the patterns of destruction in which we find ourselves take years to form. And it will take time to move beyond them … When transformation seems slow, remember that God is in your corner, and you will win the good fight.”
Frenn’s book will be available Oct. 13 from Faith Words.
