Product Description

READ A SAMPLE OF HIDDEN AGENDAS.

We like to pretend that hidden agendas are just for self-important bosses or egotistical politicians, but we all have them. Deep down, we all have a secret plan for getting from where we are to where we want to be, even if we refuse to admit it to ourselves.

And if our hidden agendas aren’t enough, we wear masks to obscure the truth even more. We put on these masks—like religion, appearance, power, politics, or protection—to drive our agendas. But all of this leaves us feeling phony, ashamed, guilty, and afraid. It’s killing us and hurting those we love. But for most of us, it will be a cold day in a hot place before we will be fully honest with anyone else.

There is so much more to life than hiding, pretending, and never being loved. In fact, there is already one person who sees behind the masks we wear and the hidden agendas that drive us. It does no good to tell God that you’re sick when you’re drunk, that you love him when you don’t, or that you didn’t steal and eat an apple (with apple juice dripping down your chin). God always recognizes and loves the “you” behind the mask.

So what can we do about the hidden agendas we have and the masks we wear? How can we gather the courage to be real? “Being real” has to start with your relationship with your heavenly Father. God already knows you inside and out. But God doesn’t know you in order to “out” you to your friends. His unconditional love for his own is reason we can pray to our Father without fear of rejection or judgment. Knowing God’s love, knowing that your heavenly Father is for you not against you is the only reason to give up your masks and develop the type of authentic relationships you never thought you could have.

Hidden Agendas & The Seed - A Book Trailer (02:51)
We're all hiding, and we have good reason to. Just to survive, we wear masks to hide our failings, avoid rejection, and accomplish our personal goals, all the while lying to ourselves, others, and even God. We hide within labyrinths made up of walls we build to protect us from pain, but ultimately find ourselves isolated, lonely, and trapped in prisons of our own creation. Only our heavenly Father's unconditional love can set us free and invite us to drop the masks that are keeping us apart from him and the rest of his children. Explore and experience these realities in two new books from Key Life and New Growth Press. Steve Brown's 'Hidden Agendas: Dropping the Masks that Keep Us Apart' teaches you how to come out of hiding and live in the freedom of God's light and love. And Erik Guzman's 'The Seed: A True Myth' illustrates that same message with vivid parabolic storytelling. Get a great deal on both books here... http://bit.ly/1VyjyKX
