I think that as women sometimes we have a tendency to believe what others have told us in our past or even the lies of the Enemy. And we lose contact with our true Father in Heaven who loves us very much and wants only the best for us.
When things go wrong, we tend to believe it is our fault. When you have trouble homeschooling your kids, you start thinking that maybe homeschooling is not for you after all... When you are discouraged and depressed, you see all black around you. You feel lonely, fearful about what is in the future, and wonder if you are worth anything.
STOP right there...!
Messages to Myself deal exactly with these kind of thoughts that will creep into our minds and distract us. The reality is that we are worthy and God care for us. We just need to readjust out thought process and think as God would think. But when you are in this kind of thinking mode, you don't realize it right away.
So the author has written this wonderful little book to help you tool that she calls the Truth Chart and she helps you to identify the lies you have believed about yourself and destroy these lies with the truth. She will also demonstrate where the lies come from, what is God's perspective about you, guide you to make sure your own kids learn to speak healthy about themselves (wonderful...), how to create peaceful relationships and remind you that practice makes perfect.
After each chapter, there is a special section called MAKING IT PERSONAL in where you will have to answer specific questions about your own situation. Getting over the self-doubt and re-instating a healthy image of yourself will take some time but don't be discourage. It can be done and this book is a good springboard to do so.
Not bad. But kind of faded into the background instead of standing out.
Another book mostly for women, to reduce and change negative self talk, by filtering through God's word.
There are plenty of books with this topic out there, and I thought this one was middle of the road. The spin is the link to God, so if that's your thing you have a winner in this book.
