She offers great stories and insight, but my favorite thing about this book is that she gives practical ways to deal with body issues. Additionally, every chapter has group discussion questions AND personal journaling questions. I personally did this study by myself, but still found the group discussion questions great to look at and truly consider.
Overall, this book is not going to make you feel better about how you look, it's going to help you realize WHO you are in God, in a practical, meaningful way, and once we know that, we will see the beauty and value our creator has given us!
Barbara L. Roose has a wonderful, conversational style that feels like my smartest, most articulate friend is talking to me over lunch. Plus, Roose's use of her own experiences and anecdotes from the lives of others keeps the book from being "preachy" sounding. This really helps to drive home her message with alienating readers.
While I enjoyed the book, I felt that as a single reader, I wasn't getting the full benefit of it. This book really lends itself to group discussion. That's not to say that the book has no benefit for a single reader but I feel that it's full impact would be better felt in a group format.
Overall, this is a great book for anyone struggling with their looks and feelings of being inadequate.
About this book:
Most women know that God loves them, but might he love them more if they finally lost that last ten pounds, or got their hair to lay right, or finally found a pair of jeans that looked good and let them breathe? Well, maybe God doesn’t care about jeans, but women do, and all the talk about inner beauty hasn’t kept all of us from staring into a mirror and taking an inventory that never quite measures up. Enough Already will:
—Elevate the soul-freeing, spiritual truth that God is the Creator of beauty and that women are called to appreciate and care for themselves as his own.
—Enable women to accept God-given beauty so that when they look in the mirror they see his handiwork, not their flaws.
—Equip women to win the ugly struggle with beauty once and for all.
I loved this book. I think there are more than enough self-help books or feel-good books already written, but this book was different. Roose talks about so many different aspects of our beauty and how our spiritual life relates to our self-esteem and feelings of self-worth. Every chapter includes scripture which backs up everything that Roose is talking about. She also has included several personal accounts from ladies across the country that are probably similar to things the reader has felt or thought. Also, every chapter includes discussion questions if you are doing the book with a small group (a great idea, in my opinion) as well as personal journaling questions to help you on your journey to accept your beauty.
The book is well-written, it will keep your attention, and will help you learn what true beauty is according to God. I loved it and highly recommend it to all ladies.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
