Mind Your Heart
by Liza Mitchell

How do you come back to yourself after losing yourself in a man? When you stray from God, how do you return? In this unashamedly candid memoir, first-time author Liza Mitchell recalls the time of her life when she did just this, pursuing the love of a man at her church, relentlessly and fervently, at the expense of her relationship both to herself and God. Against her better judgement, Liza begins to find herself unerringly compelled by Sean, a local man who attends her church. This leads her to embark on a tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship with him, despite his non-committal ways and the un-Christlike tendencies he often exhibits. This leads to her own un-Christlike behaviours, ultimately culminating in an incident where she travels to check in on his house when he’s not there, against his wishes. This is followed by a great deal of remorse, leading to her struggling with whether to return to her church singing group—or church, generally. Through faith and hard work, though, Liza is able to recover her relationship to herself and God. Ultimately, hers is a heartening message bolstered by her Christian faith, affirming God’s love as capable of clearing the conscience. After all, Jesus died for our sins.

Liza Mitchell lives alone in small-town Ontario, Canada—where she lived with her son during the writing of this memoir, before his passing. She intends this, her first book, to strengthen and hearten any Christian women dealing with similar situations to what she’s been through, reminding them not only to be more discerning in who they choose to romantically pursue, but also to trust in God’s will, knowing He knows best—and that in Him, they can always find love and forgiveness.
