Joel 2:25-26 (KJV) says, "And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.  And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed."
You may find the past years of your life wasted and consumed by your own sin and the sin perpetrated against you by others.  Yet, as through a metamorphous, the caterpillar becomes a butterfly, so God provides a supernatural metamorphous, a transformation (metamorphoo in Greek), which can take place.  
Through the prophet Joel, the Lord says that He will restore what was lost and consumed.  God does not merely promise a better future; He actually promises to utilize your past devastation in such a way so as to transform the loss of the past to profit.
The butterfly does not even remember being a caterpillar.  Nor will you even lament your devoured and wasted years.  The Lord will cause your future to be fruitful in amazing ways.  The caterpillar begins as a devourer, but becomes a useful and fruitful butterfly, an insect that has a productive purpose.    
God spoke this verse to the author of this book, my husband Larry, shortly after he met Jesus in 1979.  Larry had been lamenting his past wasted years.  Now, almost 30 years later, he can testify to the truth and fulfillment of this promise.
This book presents some practical tools along with powerful truths for the healing of your inner and invisible wounds that may have come upon you by your sin and the sin of others.  God's healing will make you a free person, able to "fly" and be fruitful as depicted by the butterfly on the front cover.

    This book had an interesting title and bio, but it is misleading. The book warps the bible's teachings and is full of "junk" theology that just isn't written anywhere in the bible. For instance, this book claims that homosexuality is "caused" by parents "preferring the other gender" before baby is born and the child "senses this" and makes a "choice to please the parents" ARE YOU KIDDING? This is only one example of the many strange and fringe ideas that are presented with supposed biblical support in this book. It was actually almost comical except that I worry about people whom have impressionable faith and take this as facts. GARBAGE.
