We all want to feel valued. We crave approval and acceptance in the eyes of family, friends, and even strangers. But when we seek confirmation that we are enough using the world’s standards, it seems like we always fall short. As a result, we cannot believe we are who God says we are–accepted, loved, beautiful, and treasured.
With hope-filled writing and plenty of hard-won personal advice, Carey Scott teaches you how to untangle your self-esteem from the world and anchor it in Jesus. She lovingly shows you that God was intentional in how he made you–and that he is pleased with his work. You’ll learn practical strategies to escape the unattainable standards of our performance-based world. And you’ll find comfort in the fact that you are not alone on the journey.
I received this book as an advanced copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I gave this book only three out of five stars because I didn’t relate to almost half of the book. Several chapters were specifically for married women with children, which I am not. Despite that, I could relate to a lot of the rest of the book and enjoyed hearing the stories of how other people struggle with the same things I do.
