Does this insecurity make me look fat? Blog Tour




Title: “Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat?”

Author: Michelle Wilson
Page Count:  168

Summary:
·    Why do clothing stores hang fun-house mirrors in their dressing rooms?
·         The laundry doesn’t cry when it’s not folded, so why should I?
·         Can I be confident even if an elevator calls me fat?



Michelle Wilson’s humorous yet poignant insights help women examine the limitations we place on ourselves out of insecurity and self-doubt. We have faith in God, but do we know that He has faith in us?
When we see ourselves with God’s eternal perspective, we can feel confident and whole—even in our imperfection. Just think what we might accomplish if we truly believe that we are more important than we know, stronger than we realize, and extraordinary in every way.

My Review: 
5 out 5 Stars

An amazing book that touches to the very heart of the struggles women in today's world face. Rather than the typical self-help style, this book felt more like encouragement from a friend with a big kick in the pants thrown in to get you motivated. With touching personal moments of embarrassments, success, failure, and humor given for each of the points she talks about, you can't help feeling you are not alone in whatever issues you face, or have faced.  Michelle Wilson isn't afraid to dig deep into her own life as she encourages women to reevaluate their current viewpoints on life, and offers scriptural and personal inspiration to help them realign their viewpoint with God's Perspective of them as his beloved daughters. 

I loved this book. It was full of references from ancient and modern prophets and apostles who testified of the divine truths, Wilson reminded me of. She offers realistic ways to overcome some of our less than perfect views of ourselves as women in God's plan. With her section on recognizing the Enemies of Perspective, you get a fresh new look at things that may be holding you back from reaching your true potential that you never realized were affecting you. She isn't ashamed to admit she too has been a victim of some of these things, and offers a helping hand and smile as she shows ways to overcome our skewed perspective about ourselves and life. I face the new year with a renewed sense of purpose and joy after reading her inspiring, and often humorous, book. 

Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for the kind words and lovely review! Yes, I have been and still am a victim of some of the Enemies of Perspective. But that's the beauty of how God works-He's always there to draw us back to Him, and to ourselves! Thanks again!
