Body Image Lies Women Believe: And the Truth of Christ That Sets Them Free

Shelley Hitz

Price: FREE

This is a great book that gives Biblical inspiration for why women believe the way they do. I really enjoyed reading this book as it touched on the problems I have been having with my self-esteem and how to handle them. I plan on keeping it around to review at later times to help friends and children with any problems they could be having as well. Very enjoyable book. Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Body Image Lies Women Believe

Are you insecure about your looks?
Have you ever compared yourself to someone else and found yourself wanting?
Do complements or put downs determine the image you have of your beauty?

Real Stories of Overcoming Body Image Lies Women Believe with God’s Truth

Throughout this book, Christian women share their stories of how they have struggled with body image lies and a distorted view of themselves. However, each of their stories also contains hope – the hope of replacing these lies with God’s truth. Our prayer for you is that you find encouragement within these pages and allow Christ to transform you with His truth.

We Are Each Created Unique

God has created each one of us with unique abilities, unique talents and a unique personality. As women we are influencers and God has given us that role and our beauty to share with others. Yet so often we settle for a counterfeit. The enemy has counterfeited our idea of beauty, convincing us to share our beauty with the world in a distorted way. Today that often means that we see our beauty as what we look like on the outside.

What Lies Have You Been Believing?

Join us for the journey of replacing body image lies with truth from God’s Word.

My Mother’s Rules: A Practical Guide to Becoming an Emotional Genius

Lynn Toler

Price: FREE

I borrowed My Mother’s Rules: A Practical Guide to Becoming an Emotional Genius, from a good friend of mine. Halfway through the book, I already knew that I needed my own copy to give to another friend of mine that was going through some tough times and looking for advice. I knew that this inspirational story would put things into perspective. Lynn Toler’s rocky journey to becoming the successful adult that she is today, seems to be nothing short of a miracle when you read about her early childhood. Once you see the very practical rules for dealing with life that her mother taught, it all comes into focus. The story of the Toler family is one that each and every person can relate to in some way. My own family background couldn’t be more different, and yet the book is written in a way that made me identify with every page. Lynn’s style of writing is so easy to read that you feel more like you are having a conversation with a good friend than reading a book. This is coming from someone that had not finished any book in around 4 years. I typically read a page or two and then fall asleep. This one I looked forward to finding another 10 minutes of free time to read a little more any chance I could. I found myself quoting Toni Toler, the rules, and telling people in my circle how to apply some of the common sense I’d found in the book to all kinds of situations.

Melissa Lockwood

In this unique, profoundly inspirational memoir, Divorce Court star Judge Lynn Toler shares her mother’s wisdom for learning to conquer anger and become immune to insult. Toler credits her mother’s “rules” for life – a life that saw her grow up the daughter of a poor teen mother and endure a husband who suffered mental illness and alcoholism – with providing the grounding for her own success and happiness. Toler shows how the mindset of “a black woman who knew how to make things work” taught her the power of knowing how to manage one’s emotional business—lessons that this book offers in wrenching stories written in spare and graceful prose. My Mother’s Rules is an unforgettable book that will captivate readers with its illustrations of how to rise above the most difficult circumstances and find peace and success in life.

Anke Bialis

Price: FREE

This is book three in Anke Bialas’ Herbology at Home Series. What really speaks to me, in this book, is the fact that it helps show us that herbal home medicine making is a craft that has been practiced for eons and it is accessible and practical for all of us. Through the ages people have been using common culinary herbs not only for flavoring food, but also for the medicinal qualities of these plants. Anyone can tend themselves or their loved ones with some of the everyday complaints we humans are prone to, with the help of these herbs.

Anke’s goal of her Herbology at Home Series, is to help us realize that each and every one of us have the ability to help support and tend some of our own health issues, (or prevent them), right at our own fingertips. We don’t have to be doctors, herbalists, great gardeners, or chemists! With the help of her tips, ideas, suggestions we can start using common culinary herbs right in our own kitchens to make our own homemade health:) These are home remedies your grandmother knew. Simple and effective treatments right from your own pantry.

God Knows My Name: Never Forgotten, Forever Loved

Beth Redman

Price: FREE

Do You Know How Much You Matter to God? In this powerful and deeply vulnerable book, Beth Redman writes to pass along a message that changed her life – that the God who made us also understands us intimately and proclaims our worth by naming us and calling our name. He hears our cries and reaches out to help us and fight for us. He knows our past but is already hard at work shaping our future – helping us, defending us, and restoring the damage life has done. And no matter what others do, our heavenly Father will never, ever leave or forget us.
Drawing on Scripture and her own experience, Redman invites us to explore the revolutionary implications of being loved by a God who knows our name. And she invites us to call on His name as well – to respond to His heart and love Him as He has loved us from the beginning.

Feminine Appeal: Seven Virtues of a Godly Wife and Mother

Carolyn Mahaney

Price: $3.99

Carolyn’s warm, practical, biblical, God-centered approach offers the mature mentoring that women of every age yearn for at times. For some, Feminine Appeal may be an excellent stand-in for the mentor they lack right now. For others, it will wonderfully complement the relationship they have with an older friend of the Titus 2 sort.

John and Noel Piper

“Isn’t it telling that our culture requires training and certification for so many vocations of lesser importance but hands us marriage and motherhood without instruction?”

Carolyn Mahaney identifies with the challenges facing women in today’s world and meets them with the guidance of God’s Word. In this book of instruction for wives and mothers, she explores seven feminine virtues given in Titus 2 that have transformed her life and the lives of countless other women.

God has given older women the responsibility to teach younger women about these feminine virtues. And these virtues are not just about having a good marriage and family; they are about commending the Gospel to the watching world. Feminine Appeal invites you to be transformed by the Gospel and to display the Gospel jewel with great elegance as you live out the wisdom that Mahaney offers.

waiting

WAITING on GOD

Cherie Hill

Price: 99 cents

This book is awesome. Cherie Hill explains so clear what the Bible has been telling us always. It’s all about letting our faith grow. We live in such a fast world, that often we try to make God to be as fast as the world around us. But as Cherie very well expose in this book, is about learning to wait in that waiting room knowing that God will come in that room and call you and while you are there waiting, you have to learn what is his purpose for the wait. God has promised that He shall not delay. I guarantee you will not be able to put the book down until is finished. You will enjoy every word of every sentence of every paragraph of this book. You will absolutely read until either you had finished the book or exhaustion get you.

Jose M. Torres

You pray, but God doesn’t seem to be listening. You trust Him, but it appears He’s letting you down. You believe His Word, but His promises are coming up seemingly empty in your life. You seek, but do not find…you knock, but no one answers. If God is doing anything at all in your life…you can’t see it. The fight of faith intensifies, as it appears that not only is God running late…He may not even show up at all. By the looks of things, God’s either too busy in the lives of others or He just simply doesn’t care.

All of our Christian life, we’re prepared to hear God speak to us, but nothing prepares us for His silence. It’s in these times of desperation, when we’re filled with doubt in the midst of our faith, when waiting on God appears to be in vain, that our faith is tested, grown, and strengthened, as we learn to trust in Him even when there appears to be now reason that we should.
While we wait on God, it’s His Promises that we’ll cling to, and ultimately put our faith in, when our lives are hanging by a thread. We’ll find that God knows what He’s doing. He’s in control…even when life isn’t. You’ll find that even when your world seems to be falling apart…it’s really just falling into place in the hands of your Almighty loving God.
