Stop pretending everything is fine.

This book was a rare treat for me in that I read it three times in a row, something I seldom do.

Raw.

Real.

Unapologetic.

This is what I would describe The Emotionally Healthy Woman by Geri Scazzero. She openly shares her story of depression and overwhelming loss of herself while "serving Christ and serving others", and her path to true healing.

Geri shows that you have to stop worrying about what others think, stop always being available and stop not saying NO when you just can't do something. You can only love others as you love yourself, and if you spend so much time serving others that you are empty, you really can't share Christ in His true entirety.

In order to maintain your true self, and your own emotional health, you have to quit.

Quit worrying about what others think
Quit Lying
Quit Dying to the Wrong Things
Quit Denying Anger, Sadness, and Fear
Quit Blaming
Quit Overfunctioning
Quit Faulty Thinking
Quit Living Someone Else's Life
In the chapter of "Quit Denying Anger, Sadness, and Fear", I was really touched at how the Christian world has taken the stance that sadness, anger and depression have no place with faith. If you are sad, overwhelmed, or just plain tired, you are obviously not strong in your faith. Geri's stance that this is a total lie hit me in the heart. If I can just admit that I am angry, or sad, or even afraid, I can move toward true healing. So if I get bad news from the doctor, or my husband tells me his job has been eliminated, it's okay to be angry, sad and afraid. I can admit that I have those feelings, and get true help and healing from the Father. I can get true support from friends. By denying those emotions, I am denying myself the chance to truly heal.

"Quitters are never winners."

I bet you have heard that before! And generically speaking, it is the truth. However, Geri Scazzero would have us think a little differently about "quitting".

Geri is a popular conference speaker, trainer, and coach for church leaders, women's groups, and married couples, both in North America and internationally. Geri has served on staff of New Life Fellowship Church in New York City for the last 25 years and is the co-founder, along with her husband, Pete, of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality ([...]) - a groundbreaking ministry that equips pastors and leaders with a new leadership paradigm that integrates emotional health and contemplative spirituality. She is the coauthor of Emotionally Healthy Skills 2.0 and The Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Workbook.

I was drawn to the opportunity to review this book for two reasons:
1. The title. In today's society, women are often portrayed as big mushy bags of emotion, so therefore, they need one more book about how to be "emotionally healthy".
2. I was interested as a pastor's wife in hearing what a sister pastor's wife had to say; especially one who had told her husband she was "quitting the church".

In this most recent book, The Emotionally Healthy Woman: Eight Things You Have To Quit To Change Your Life (previously titled I Quit), Geri targets eight things women need to "quit" in order to be emotionally healthy:

Quit being afraid of what others think.
Quit lying.
Quit dying to the wrong things.
Quit denying anger, sadness, and fear.
Quit blaming.
Quit overfunctioning.
Quit faulty thinking.
Quit living someone else's life.

Format: Paperback
According to the book's introduction, this is a " book about following Jesus and summoning the courage to quit anything that does not belong to his kingdom or fall under his rule." "Quitting is a way of putting off what scripture calls falsehood and the old self." Becoming a Christian is not just about taking on new behaviors and reading scripture, it is also about letting go of thoughts and behaviors that are contrary to the kingdom of God. The author shares from her own life experiences as to how she quit things in her life, including her own church to go on a very personal spiritual journey. What she discovered allowed her to grow in her role as a pastor's wife, woman, and mother, no longer living in false roles and allowing others to control her life, living for others rather than for God. This book would make a great book for a woman's book study as a group or even for individual study. The author uses scripture along with biblical stories to share her points throughout the book. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a serious self study to change the behaviors that don't seem to be working for you.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book for review from B & B Media. I was not obligated to write a positive review. The opinions in the review are my own.

A five star. I loved this book and completely related to the author. A primer for all women.

First, as the back of the book says.. Stop pretending everything is fine. Jesus wants our identity. Our identity is not the items we own. the things that consume us. Our identity is not our duties, things that pull us away from focusing on the One. Our identity is not our achievements or to a group we belong. Our identity is in Christ.

In this book, Scazzero says it is time to quit lying, pushing down emotions that will lead to real, healthy change, and speak up and speak out for what God values. It is time for freedom, a mantra of mine. It is time to be who God intended us to be with clear boundaries that affirm His values for us.

Scazzero continues by saying it is time to quit dying to the wrong things. Stop worrying what others think and seek to please the one Who Created You. Allow God to esteem you. Seek things that bring life. Worship including, singing, dancing, writing, any activity that celebrates who He is. Studying including: reading, listening, finding solitude in nature studying/rejoicing in His glorious creation. Carve out time for it and allow God to restore your emotional self, your heart. Let Him restore your thoughts, your feelings, your hopes, and your beliefs. Let Christ be the source of your self-worth.

Finally, my favorite chapter, get off the bus someone else is driving and live the life God intended for you to live. God gives us permission to quit and simply live for Him.

Outstanding work. I highly recommend this book.

I received a free copy form B&B Media.
