Have you ever read a book that leaves you in a thoughtful place of contemplation long after the last page has been turned and the book is closed?
Confident Identity is that kind of book.
Days after reading its final pages, I found myself deliberately and intentionally processing the content of this book. Thinking through my personality, pondering my gifts, and praying through my God-given and life-shaped identity, I couldn't shake the significance of its words. I felt a sense of purpose after reading its words -- a driving challenge to explore, expand, and exercise my identity for not only myself but also for the edification of those around me and for the glorification of my Heavenly Father.
Confident Identity is a conversation-starter, a thought-generator, and a game-changer.
Combining Scripture, clinical theories, and practical tools, Matt has thoughtfully crafted a beautiful resource for not only those seeking to better understand and strengthen their identity but also for those who work in both lay and professional settings. The book is filled with an abundance of insightful questions, constructive ideas, easy-to-read charts, and meaningful activities and tests which allow an individual to thoroughly explore and contemplate their identity.
This resource does a wonderful job of providing the reader with mini therapeutic sessions that can be done in the confines of a home, over a cup of coffee with a trusted friend, in a church community group, or even in the safety of a therapist's office. As a therapist myself, this will be in a quick-to-reach spot in my office, as I see this book being a helpful clinical resource when thinking through treatment plans and case conceptualization for those who are struggling in understanding, defining, and forming their identity.
Every follower of Christ could benefit from reading and engaging with the content of this book; I know I have.
"A powerhouse book packed with examples, media recommendations, diagrams, and self-assessment tools,this isn't merely a "light-read" for the weekend. This is an integrated and interactive book useful for self-discovery. Encouraging, insightful, and grounded in the Word of God."
- Karen Ferguson

I wrote Confident Identity to give you a boost forward in understanding and accepting who you are.
You can Love and Cherish Your Awesome Identity (without being selfish or arrogant). You can put off doubt, insecurity, and shame.
As you read, you'll receive in depth answers to why you're suffering and what you need to do to start really living.
Don't settle for the lie that you're ordinary and not needed.
God intentionally created you as you are. Step into all you are and start living with more contentment and joy, no matter how great or difficult your circumstances.
This book summarizes the encouragement I need to have a Confident Identity. I trust you will find the same strength as you read it.
