Before any significant makeover can happen, some demolition is usually needed. The old and unnecessary must be torn down before it can be replaced with the new and needed improvements. That is how God usually works in our own lives – but not until we are willing to stand before the Master Makeover Artist and surrender all the “stuff” that is standing in the way of our remodel. In her usual practical and very real style, Danna provides scriptural and practical teaching that helps women experience a profound makeover of the heart. Available as a 2-4 session conference or retreat
