About the Book:
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.
“Silencing Insecurity” by Donna Gibbs is one of those books that I’d recommend for those who are just beginning to read about the topic of insecurity. None of the information in this book was new, so, unfortunately, it wasn’t for me.
The author breaks the book into three parts: IDENTITY THIEVES / UNNECESSARY PROBLEMS / and THE NECESSARY SECRET. Here you discover the different types of insecurity we all deal with, the deep problems they cause (mental, emotional, relational, developmental), and the way we find healthy healing and points us back to Christ. Our identity is in Him.
I appreciate how the author uses Scripture and points her readers’ back to Jesus throughout the book, but I thought it was done in a kind of shallow way. It seemed as if the author was talking at me rather than to me. I just didn’t connect with the book at all.
