"As we journey to Jericho together, it is my hope that the words, stories and experiences of the Jericho Girls will help to transform you into the woman of God you were called to be-one without walls."       -DAWNA


Many of us find it difficult to receive.

We’ve complicated the act of opening up to goodness because we don’t understand how or when to block unhealthy energy. We tend to insert our own ideas and agendas and measure our own worth before accepting. Even though it’s better to give, it’s harder to receive. It doesn’t come naturally and takes humble practice. While the world spins on the axis of quid pro quo, there’s a better way.

With transparency and hope, Dawna Hetzler shares examples of how she internalized the wrong messages throughout her life. After years of accepting inaccurate narratives, it all came to light when faced with the reality that she might lose her husband and the life she admired. Digging deep, she found the necessary strength by accepting kindness and rejecting animosity.

Each of us have our own unique journey, and there isn’t a precise “number of steps” to maximize someone’s life; nevertheless, Dawna guides you through seven practices to shift your perspective on what to take in and what to let go. You might use one, some, or all, but throughout this book, you’ll become acquainted with the gift of knowing when to open your heart and when to close it.

If you long to learn the art of receiving, then journey through the pages of this book; you might find a truer version of the person you’ve always wanted to be.
