David C Cook Acquires 'New York Times' Best-Selling Author Stasi Eldredge: Co-Author of 'Captivating' to Release 'Becoming Myself' with David C Cook in August 2013
COLORADO SPRINGS, June 18, 2012 /Christian Newswire
/ -- David C Cook announces the acquisition of New York Times best-selling author Stasi Eldredge, with her new book, "Becoming Myself," set to release in August 2013.
"Stasi writes to women in all seasons of life, from the heart of a woman who loves Jesus and through failure and success continues to journey towards complete transformation," says Don Pape, Vice President Trade Publishing. "David C Cook is privileged to play a role in the stewardship of the triumphant message of this book."
Eldredge and husband John co-authored best seller "Captivating" (more than 3 million books in print), which helps women recover their feminine hearts. Speaking to the heart of a woman again in "Becoming Myself: A Woman's Journey of Transformation," Eldrege guides readers to embrace who they are and who they are meant to be.
"'Becoming Myself' is a hope-filled book for every woman who has begun to wonder if her life will ever change; if she will ever change," said Eldredge. "Life-long struggles with loneliness, worth, self-image, weight, anger, fear, or depression (to name a few) begin to take a toll on a woman's belief that God not only sees her in her every moment but loves her fiercely."
Also according to Eldredge, "Becoming Myself" acknowledges the sheer difficulty of being a woman and urges women to lay down their self-contempt, judge themselves less harshly, embrace who they are meant to be, believe more deeply that what God says about them is true, and participate actively in their own unfolding destiny.
Eldredge received her bachelor's degree in Sociology from San Diego State University. She became a Christian her junior year in college and became actively involved in ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. After graduation, Eldredge joined Youth for Christ, heading up a ministry to pregnant teenagers and teen mothers. She has been active in multiple ministry focus areas including: theatre ministry, crisis pregnancy center ministry, women's ministry and children's ministry. Stasi, married to counselor and author John Eldredge, has collaborated with her husband to pen multiple best-selling books. She and John reside in Colorado Springs with their three sons.
