Have you ever picked up a book and just felt immediately that it was written just for you? A book that grabs you from the title and has you hooked within chapter one? Today, I'm sharing a book that very much fit that bill for me, 'Silencing Insecurity: Believing God's Truth about You':


Insecurity is easily the most pervasive struggle of women in America today. We have more ways than ever to compare ourselves to others--who are all prettier, thinner, smarter, more successful, and more put together than we are--and our sense of self-worth takes a serious beating on an almost daily basis. We're tired of simply commiserating with writers and bloggers who share their own struggles--we want real, workable solutions about how to find peace with ourselves.
This is what professional Christian counselor Donna Gibbs gives women with Silencing Insecurity. Drawing from her twenty years of experience counseling women, she exposes the many lies that produce insecurities in us starting from a young age, the result of letting those insecurities get the best of us, and, most importantly, the way out of insecurity--for good. Anyone who is tired of letting insecurity snatch away the joy from her life will welcome this practical and freeing book.

To some degree, I am certain that each and every one of us deals with insecurities in one way or another... for some of us, those insecurities have a way of seeping into every aspect of our lives. They can make us feel like we're drowning in them.

This book is a great resource in helping us recognize where those insecurities in our life, and finding the tools to help us silence them. Like I said, there are some books that you feel are just written for you, and this one was most definitely that for me. In part one, Donna Gibbs speaks about the different areas in which insecurities can trick us and steal our views of who we are--- appearance, success, approval, etc. She poses questions regarding each category to help us recognize those own insecurities in our own lives. I must admit I answered yes to most of those myself. More than I would like. Part two then looks at where those insecurities can cause unnecessary problems in our lives: mentally, emotionally, in our relationship and developmentally. And finally, part three helps us to attempt to work through those insecurities.

As a counselor, Donna Gibbs truly offers some wonderful professional insight into these issues, but more importantly offers a lot of Biblical insights as well. She ends each chapter with a Bible verse, and additional questions that will really encourage us to dig deeper into working on those areas of insecurity we face in our daily lives.

This is a great read, and one that I would highly recommend to anyone struggling. It is available to purchase now at your favorite Christian book retailers.
