Real Truth for Real Choices: A Spiritual Autobiography
Real Truth for Real Choices by Liz Millican is available on Amazon.
Have you ever felt trapped, alone, depressed, unworthy, or as if you lacked purpose? These feelings are all common, but some people struggle to find the solution. Liz Millican offers hope to these problems through her struggles with abuse and hopelessness. From her struggles with sexual abuse to spiritual emptiness, her candor and perseverance are an inspiration to us all. Her story is about a choice to live life with light, hope, and forgiveness instead of darkness, pain and sorrow. While all these problems are common, Liz’s approach to them isn’t--she finds hope and purpose through the darkest of circumstances.
Even if you aren’t struggling with these problems, her approach will inspire you to seek out the best in life. While an inspiring story is always good for the soul, Liz Millican doesn’t seek just to inspire you, but to motivate you to seek the same success in your life. She uses the stories from her life to help teach Biblical lessons and how they should be applied to life!

Chapter 1 There’s no avoiding it!
God cares for you, so turn all your worries over to him.
I hung up the phone and anxiously waited, knowing what was about to happen. I felt like I was going to be sick, but I knew this was unavoidable.
I tried to keep my mind busy as I waited…
It wasn’t long before there was a knock at the door. I opened the door to see a police officer standing there.
Life is not just about the events that happen to us. It is also about the lessons that we learn. It is about who we are and who we are becoming.
For me, anxiety was a significant struggle. The lies I believed about life and about myself caused me a lot of anxiety. It was paralyzing for a long time. I believed that I wasn’t good at anything and it took me a long time to learn what I was good at. Just because your skills aren’t obvious doesn’t mean you don’t have any. You can always develop new skills, even if you can’t do everything you would like to, you can do better than you think you can. Replace your negative thinking with true statements.
My anxiety rested in my perceived abilities, but when I learned to trust in God and His purposes then I was no longer weighed down by anxiety. I stopped letting my ego, or lack there of, get in the way of my desires and just focused on what needed to be done. I also learned to pray for the right things. Instead of praying that our suffering will end, we should pray that we will learn from our suffering. As we learn to pray about everything, we see the effects of our prayers and our faith increases, reducing our anxiety.
