Good girls need Jesus

Sep 15, 2011Find joy today, Heal from the past

I’m privileged to be able to share a new book with you. If you comment below, you have a chance to win the book, so please do! I love to bless folks with insightful, helpful books. This one’s entitled, Grace for the Good Girl by Emily Freeman. You can meet Emily here.

How many of you are good girls? (I know I have male readers here, so I’ll also ask, how many of you are good boys/men?) What I mean by that is do you equate your worth with how you act and what you do in the presence of others? How much of your life is shaped by the expectations of others, or the ones you put on yourself?

If this is an issue for you, Emily Freeman’s Grace for the Good Girl will become a good companion. Guess what? There is freedom in following Jesus! You don’t have to live up to a bunch of other-breathed standards. You have been freed to be fully you, different and unique from all those folks you compare yourself to. Emily helps us all become comfortable in our own skin, to thrive within our personalities, and gain freedom from stifling expectations.

She helps you deal with all those pesky shoulds.

If you’re dealing with frustration, fatigue, worry, or self-doubt, this book offers grace, grace, grace, and with that, hefty doses of freedom and joy and peace. Who couldn’t use some of that?

This book lives and breathes Galatians 5:1: “So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.”
