Many of us believe that we are saved by grace--but for too many, that's the last time grace defines our life. Instead of clinging to grace, we strive for good and believe that the Christian life means hard work and a sweet disposition. As good girls, we focus on the things we can handle, our disciplined lives, and our unshakable good moods. When we fail to measure up to our own impossible standards, we hide behind our good girl masks, determined to keep our weakness a secret.
In "Grace for the Good Girl," Emily Freeman invites women to let go of the try-hard life and realize that in Christ we are free to receive from him rather than constantly try to achieve for him. With an open hand and a whimsical style, Emily uncovers the truth about the hiding, encouraging women to move from hiding behind girl-made masks and do-good performances to a life hidden with Christ in God.
Often the biggest obstacle to living out our faith is our own doubt--about our own worth, our abilities, our relationship with God, and the situations in our lives. "A Confident Heart" gives voice to the questions, doubts, struggles, and hopes that many women have but are afraid to admit. Author Renee Swope shows women how to manage, process, and even use doubt in order to live confidently in God's power, truth, and grace. Through the promises of Scripture and true stories, she shows readers that they don't have to be perfect, they are able to fulfill their callings, and they can move forward through life's setbacks.
Perfect for women's small groups or individuals, "A Confident Heart" is an upbeat, positive message for any woman who wants to exchange destructive thought patterns for biblical truth that will transform the way she thinks, feels, and lives.
