Up from the Ashes: Reclaiming God’s Original Design and Purpose for Your Life


Underneath her facade of happiness, Dinah Hodgson struggles emotionally. When her unhappiness becomes too much to bear, she cries out to God, but His response is not what she expects: He leads her to reexamine her abusive childhood. Even though obedience will be painful, Dinah accepts that it’s the only way out of the dark place she’s found herself in. What follows is a journey of reclaiming her destiny as God brings her “up from the ashes” and into abundant life. 


“No true journey to freedom and healing in Christ is ever easy. . . . Dinah helps her readers confront that pain little by little, with compassion and confidence to the end.”  

—J. A. Marx, author of The Silenced Christian Wife 

Dinah Hodgson looks like she has it all—perfect husband, three great kids, fulfilling volunteer work. But behind the American-dream persona, Dinah carries dark secrets in her subconscious, ready to spill out.  

How is your here-and-now? Are you struggling with issues that are overwhelming, with no end in sight? Are you, like Dinah, pressing on, fully cognizant that even the most “perfect” life doesn’t always feel so perfect? 

In Up from the Ashes, Dinah recounts her journey of reclaiming her destiny as God brings her through restoration. Surprisingly, He leads her to reexamine her tumultuous childhood. Delving into her story, Dinah describes not only how she received healing from her dysfunctional background and recovered her destiny, but provides valuable insights into how others can be healed and reclaim their stolen destinies too. Using Scripture, Dinah offers key principles to uncover and dismantle spiritual and emotional captivity so individuals can experience the life Christ secured for them. 

God can do the unimaginable in your life if you’re willing to let Him. If you allow Christ to redeem the territories of your heart, you too can be led up from the ashes into a life of abundant blessing. Let this insightful book be a roadmap for your journey.
