Masterfully crafted by Linda F. Williams, ‘Whose Apple is it, Anyway!’ fuses the author’s own bold story of facing life’s toughest plights with an empowering series of lessons that expose the secrets of achieving true spiritual wholeness. From leveraging the ‘APPLE Inventory’ and activating the FRUITS Philosophy, any reader can leverage their own adversity to live the life they have always dreamed of.
Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/02/2015 -- Linda F. Williams won't try to hide it; she has been the victim of rape, severe physical abuse and spent almost two decades married to a man who would later turn out to be a sex offender. This unfathomable adversity could have driven Williams to give up hope, but she instead chose to do what few would even dare – reverse the fake and destructive "scripts" in her mind, a move that transformed her into an esteemed psychotherapist, life coach and relationship expert.
Williams also formed the Whose Apple Empowerment Center, with the sole mandate of helping others overcome their struggles and change their lives for the better. To reach as wide a net as possible, Williams has recently released her debut and compelling self-help book, 'Whose Apple is it, Anyway!: Empowering Purpose to Achieve your God-Ordained Destiny.'
Described as The Battlefield of the Mind meets The Purpose Driven Life, against a backdrop of the Master Plan, "Whose Apple is it Anyway!" pulls it all together equipping readers with two powerful tools to side step enemy mind-fields, reclaim enemy territory and realign themselves with destiny.
This is not your grandparents' self-help book. This is real talk for real people in a real world. The book's rubber-meets-the-road perspective brings new millennium relevance as readers discover why what we have been taught about our "flesh" is off-focus, why the soul is the prime target, and why the mind is the battlefield.
This inspirational book reveals how to wield the one sure-fire weapon we have had in our possession all along and gain the skill to leverage it to side step enemy mind-fields devised to redirect focus and sidetrack destiny.
Learn to recognize, root out, and overcome the hindrances that keep us unmercifully chained to the past.
Readers embark upon a profound voyage along a trail of tears and heartbreak; laughter and triumph, as they are guided along the author's own journey to wholeness and healing. In her own unique voice, the author tells a story of emotional and physical abuse; rape; divorce and a 17-year marriage to a man who was later convicted as a sexual predator. Few emerge unscathed from a series of traumatic encounters. Ms. Williams guides readers in discovering their own Paths of Purpose and achieving the healing and empowerment it takes to realize their God-ordained destiny.
"The opposition's strategy is to keep us off focus by blinding us to how every hurtful or traumatic experience has twisted who we really are," says Williams. "Over time, our true characters morph into complete opposites of what God created. The result is lockdown in areas we don't even see."
Continuing, "The destruction comes in the form of unrealistic scripts we repeatedly run in our minds. These fake scripts develop early on and consistently as we internalize traumatic or negative experiences as if we are the wrong that was done to us. The fallout is that we become slaves to Irrational Emotional Discharges (IEDs) that lay wait in enemy mindfields. These IEDs lockdown purpose and shout down the destiny God intends for us."

Ms. Williams' clinical philosophy holistically combines psychological, physiological, and spiritual implications of the Proverb that says that as a man thinks, so is that man.
