Book Review - "Untangled"

Think you'll never measure up? Think again.
We all want to feel valued. We crave approval and acceptance in the eyes of family, friends, and even strangers. But when we seek confirmation that we are enough using the world's standards, it seems like we always fall short. As a result, we cannot believe we are who God says we are--accepted, loved, beautiful, and treasured.

With hope-filled writing and plenty of hard-won personal advice, Carey Scott teaches you how to untangle your self-esteem from the world and anchor it in Jesus. She lovingly shows you that God was intentional in how he made you--and that he is pleased with his work. You'll learn practical strategies to escape the unattainable standards of our performance-based world. And you'll find comfort in the fact that you are not alone on the journey.

"If you feel like you're simultaneously 'too much' and 'not enough,' Carey gets you, gives you hope, and guides you to the one and only perfect One, in whose love you are complete."--Cheri Gregory, coauthor of The Cure for the "Perfect" Life

"Carey Scott offers encouragement for your heart and practical tools for your mind that will help you truly get free from insecurity."--Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You're Already Amazing

"Carey's transparency is permission for women to gently unwrap our own areas of insecurity. Her faith leads us to change and freedom."--Amy Carroll, speaker and author of Breaking Up with Perfect

Carey Scott is an author, speaker, and certified Bible life coach who challenges women to be real--not perfect--even when real is messy. She speaks to women's groups and writes an online devotional designed to help women be who God created them to be. She lives in Colorado with her husband and their two children.

My Review:
Carey Scott has written a book that so many need to read.  "Untangled" is filled with personal thoughts and also encouragement for the reader.  This focuses on so many various areas that may contribute to us feeling insecure and inadequate either as a spouse, a parent, a friend or through social media.  This is a book that I am going to read back through and really take my time with each section to really absorb and reflect on what is shared in this book.  To often how I feel and how many others feel are a direct result from others' perceptions and opinions, which is not healthy.  I highly recommend this book as it is such a great inspiring read.
