About the Book
Book: Fierce Wholeness
Author: Robin Meade
Release Date: March 5, 2020
When the Bible talks about the third- and fourth-generational curse, that’s so true. If the curse is not broken by you, then who will stop it dead in its tracks? Dealing with forgotten pain, things you stuff down just to survive, is serious business. But that’s what Robin Meade did. Growing up, she was criticized, put down, and stomped on—by her own family. She chose to bury her pain.
Fierce Wholeness: Finding Myself after Childhood Emotional Trauma is Robin’s story—in all of its raw and messy but authentic and beautiful transparency as she unpacks the trajectory of her life from childhood to adulthood and seeks to repair the dam that had been busted, the riverbed that had been washed away, the landscape that had been obliterated by her family of origin.
Readers who grew up in the clutches of the branches of emotional abuse will be empowered by Robin’s story because of the freedom that Jesus gives. Robin’s story is raw and authentic, and readers will be encouraged by how they too can find fierce wholeness in Christ.

About the Author
Robin Meade grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but now she walks with God in the beautiful suburbs of Chicago.

She loves her dog and great food, but mostly she loves Jesus, and strives to encourage people to experience God’s restorative healing and for God to be glorified through it.
More from Robin
There’s a level of ‘fierce’ that we all need to reach in our journey with Christ; to be real about the journey. When you experience abuse as a child, there is a ‘normal’ way of perceiving your surroundings that’s set, and if not corrected, stays with you into adulthood. My desire for this book is that people who have suffered childhood emotional abuse know they are not alone, that they can experience of healing through a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Bible talks about being ready to give an account and running the race striving for first place and working out our salvation with fear and trembling – some of that has been lost in our Christian culture. Jesus isn’t a wimp or a doormat because he is kind and forgiving and neither should we be. I hope my story will be a blessing to many in their faith walk, to get to their level of ‘fierce’.
Mindy Houng’s Q&A with Robin Meade
Which author influenced the you most?
For this book or in general? In general, I would say Charles Dickens and CS Lewis. They both speak the truth in a profound way through their characters that is very relatable, that I feel very deeply.
For this book there are many and I list these as recommended reading at the end of my book, but the main influence is God and His word. Hosea 4:6 says that God’s people perish for lack of knowledge. Studying, understanding and being confident in God’s promises couldn’t happen if I wasn’t in God’s word and prayer.
What is your favorite Bible verse or life verse?
1 Samuel 17:26. “And David said to the men who stood by him, “What shall be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel? For who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”
I LOVE THIS VERSE because David walks into the situation and sees everything in a different way. He has a completely different perspective. David is not in the army. He came in to bring supplies to his brothers who were in the army. He has not been immersed in the fear that the Israeli soldiers have been immersed in. For David, taking this giant out of the way is a formality. Why? Because David knows who he is, David knows who God is and David knows who he is in God’s eyes, he isn’t afraid of any giants.
What would you like your readers to get out of this book?
I’m sharing my faith journey so others who have suffered childhood emotional trauma will know they are not alone and there is a path to wholeness through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
What is your vacation spot?
I love to travel. My favorite spot would be Sarasota, Florida. I absolutely love the beach there. If I’m vacationing to relax, pretty much wherever there is warm sand and surf is where I want to be.
What is your most well-loved and well-used house appliance?
My home computer, lol. Seriously my gas fireplace. I love sitting on my couch reading with the fire going. This is for sure my happy place.
Thank you, Robin, for your time in letting us get to know you better!
