"Silencing Insecurity: believing God's truth about you," is a new personal growth book from counselor Donna Gibbs and this is one that every woman should read! This is a daily struggle, sometimes more intense than other times, and a stronger impact for some than others, however it is continual for so many people; what I'm talking about is the comparison game. Yes, we are constantly comparing ourselves, our bodies, our jobs, how we do as a mother, the neatness of our homes, everything, constantly in comparison to those around us, or pictures we see on social media. Donna shares that she has seen and heard so much of this and this is not how God intended for us to be like. In this book various things that we tell ourselves is presented and discussed and backed up with examples and then followed up with questions to ask ourselves and truths to reflect upon, all with one purpose to fight against the insecurity that has built and the lies that we have been telling ourselves and believing. My favorite chapter in the book is near the end as it wraps up so much that has already been addressed, but it takes about the formula for wholeness, how thoughts are tied to behavior and actions. Our mindset plays such a big role in our self-worth and how we see and think about ourselves. I highly recommend this book, read it and take the time to savor it and process it!
