Geri Scazzero knew there was something desperately wrong with how they were doing their life and ministry. She finally told her husband, 'I quit,' and left the thriving church he pastored, beginning a journey that transformed her, her marriage, and her church. Geri quit being afraid of what others think. She quit lying. She quit denying her anger and sadness. She quit living someone else's life. I Quit provides you a way out of an inauthentic, superficial spirituality to genuine freedom in Christ. I Quit is for every person who thinks, 'I can't keep pretending everything is fine!' Biblical quitting goes hand in hand with choosing. When we quit those things that are damaging to our souls or the souls of others, we are freed up to choose other ways of being and relating that are rooted in love and lead to life. When we quit fear of what others think, we choose freedom. When we quit lies, we choose truth. When we quit blaming, we choose to take responsibility. When we quit faulty thinking, we choose to live in reality. When we quit for the right reasons, quitting changes us. Something breaks inside of us when we finally say, 'No more.' But it must be done for the right reasons, at the right time, and in the right way. That's what this book is about.

"I read Geri Scazzero's book on a day that had been particularly challenging, one of those "I can't handle another thing!" kind of days. I was able to listen to her wisdom without all the defensive barriers I might normally erect when I don't want to be faced with uncomfortable truth. Geri's words encouraged me - and even pushed me - to examine my patterns of relating to God and to those closest to me. Her example of living in the freedom that comes from being confident of God's love inspires me to do some intentional soul work. Thank you, Geri." --- --Kay Warren, Founder, HIV/AIDS Initiative
