From Publishers Weekly
With a writing style that makes the reader feel she is having an intimate chat over coffee with a close friend, Eldredge, who co-authored the bestselling Captivating and Love and War with her husband John, goes solo for this journey to the development of life-changing self-esteem. She offers practical ways to embrace the unique dream God has for each woman's life regardless of past mistakes or present feelings of inadequacy. Transformation must happen from the inside out, she says, but until women can see themselves through God's eyes, it won't happen. She offers humor, liberating insights, biblical lessons, and insightful imagery colored by blunt talk and brutally honest personal examples—including her battles with weight gain—to encourage women to see themselves in a different light. The conversation rambles as chats between friends do, but focus can become foggy. Study notes at the end of chapters or in the rear of the book might have been helpful tools for pulling concepts together and providing ways for digesting more of this meaty food for thought. Agent: Curtis Yates, Yates & Yates. (Aug.) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
Do you have an area of your life that you would like to change, have tried to change, and have failed to change?
Stasi Eldredge knows from experience that loneliness, anger, or a poor self-image can take a toll on your belief that God loves you. In Becoming Myself, Stasi talks frankly about her own struggles with her past, her weight, and her self-worth to remind you that you don’t have to stay stuck. Shame and fear don’t need to be a part of your life. After all, they will never create the growth you long for. Only God can do that.
You are on the way to becoming your true self. Come participate in the transformation God promises as you explore your own story, awaken to your God-given desires, and begin to see yourself as God sees you.

Stasi does an outstanding job of using scriptures and real life experiences to help women have hope. She gives each of us courage to overcome and embrace our true selves that God meant us to become. I especially liked the chapter about not every woman is the same, dresses the same and has to act the same in church. I tried to do that when I first became a Christian. I buried a part of myself. I would recommend this book to any woman young or old who has struggled with "fitting in" feeling less than for whatever reason." As a counselor this book would also be a good tool for woman struggling with self esteem issues. Stasi gives tools and resources to help women grow and become their best for God's glory!
