Read-Worthy Reviews ~ January 31st

This week we’re excited to join our Nuts About Books and Resourcing Leaders Program reviewers in celebrating freedom from self, freedom from fear, and the beautiful results of living a life founded on trust…


Free of Me (Sharon Hodde Miller)

Read-Worthy Reviews - January 31st - Free of Me

Our me-centered culture affects every area of our lives–our relationships, calling, self-image, even our faith–and it negatively impacts each one. The self-focused life robs our joy, shrinks our souls, and is the reason we get stuck in insecurity.

In Free of Me, Sharon Hodde Miller invites us into a bigger, Jesus-centered vision–one that restores our freedom and inspires us to live for more. Drawing from personal experience and Scriptural insight, Sharon helps readers

  • understand how self-focus sabotages seven areas of our lives
  • learn four practical steps for focusing on God and others
  • experience freedom from the burden of self-focus

Endorsements:

“…This book was a great reminder of how to turn our focus away from ourselves and turn it to the place it really belongs – God…It is a book I think I will be reading regularly to help keep my focus in the right play.” – The Talens’ Tales

“Each chapter of Free of Me focuses on a different aspect of life that commonly becomes about us…I fully believe this book will help anyone see each arena of life in a whole new light…it wasn’t like I was trying to be self-centered. But my need for continual affirmation says otherwise…” – Gabrielle Ferguson

“…Not only was it a great resource for helping to focus less on myself and more on God, but it helped me realize that I am not alone in my struggle to do so.” – Katie (Walking By Faith) 

“…The message of this book feels like such a timely and important reminder for all of us…Free of Me is an encouraging and thought-provoking read into a subject that many of us (knowingly and unknowingly) struggle with…” – Mommy Mannegren

Read-Worthy Reviews - January 31st - The God Guarantee

The God Guarantee

by: Jack Alexander

Most of us would live, love, and give differently if we knew God would provide for all our needs. You can find freedom from the fear of not having enough!…

 

Read Dr. Conrade Yap’s post:

“Every generation, people would say that their era is tougher than their predecessors…According to author and motivational speaker, Jack Alexander, all we need to change is our paradigm of lack to contentment. There is no need to fear about not having enough. The root of an ungenerous heart is fear. Thus, Alexander helps us to change this perspective and to understand and practice biblical generosity…”

Read-Worthy Reviews - January 31st - The Trust Protocol

The Trust Protocol

by: Mac Richard

Trust is the glue that binds people together–from our families and friendships to our companies and communities. But trust is a fragile gift that can be abused, broken, and exploited with devastating consequences…

Read Rubberdart’s review:
Trust Me – It’s definitely worth reading!

“Mac Richard, in his book, The Trust Protocol, makes a bold claim that trust in any relationship – whether in marriage, parenting, work or friendship – is offered, not earned. He challenges his readers to give other people our deepest trust, even before they earn it, and whether or not they deserve it. For in doing so, we often lay a firm foundation of trust upon which deep relationships can be built and enjoyed…”
