From the Back Cover
"In a culture captivated by self, this book is a must-read."--Christine Caine, founder of A21 and Propel Women
Our me-centered culture affects every area of our lives--our relationships, calling, self-image, even our faith--and it negatively impacts each one. The self-focused life robs our joy, shrinks our souls, and is the reason we get stuck in insecurity.
In Free of Me, Sharon Hodde Miller invites us into a bigger, Jesus-centered vision--one that restores our freedom and inspires us to live for more. Drawing from personal experience and Scriptural insight, Sharon helps readers
· understand how self-focus sabotages seven areas of our lives
· learn four practical steps for focusing on God and others
· experience freedom from the burden of self-focus
If you've been yearning for more than a self-help faith, then this paradigm-shifting message of true fulfillment is for you.
"Sharon spotlights the crippling disease of self-focus and shows us how to break free from its entanglements. If you want to walk in God's life-giving truth, this book will help you do just that!"--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author; president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
"One of the best things for a healthy marriage, workplace, parent situation, or any calling is to realize the world is not orbiting around our axis. True joy is found when we realize there is a bigger story to tell. In Free of Me, Sharon paints this picture more beautifully than anyone I know."--Jefferson Bethke, author of Love That Lasts

As I saw myself in the many situations that the author presents, or similar ones, I often laughed because it showed the truth of the absurd amount of time spent on "me" - and how easy it was to turn even this book into "about me"!!
When awareness comes, then we can begin to move toward something else. Free of Me brings the awareness to self-absorption, and as a result, opens the door wider toward living by Grace.
"Free of Me" is my new favorite Christian book for women. It is real and convicting and inspiring on a level I have rarely encountered. With grace and patience, Sharon shows us that self-help and self-esteem boosts are never going to provide the kind of deep satisfaction Jesus gives us.
