5.0 out of 5 stars Like Me Or Not
By Amazon Customer on July 28, 2018
When you see a title and you think, "I don't need to read that. I'm not an approval addict!" But then you're curious so you start reading and BAM! It hits really DO care what others think!

In this book, Dawn Owens arms us with biblical truth and strategies to overcome approval addiction and we learn how to redefine who we are in Christ. Dawn shares first-hand experience at how she was able to overcome needing the approval of others.

If you have approval addiction or not, I recommend you read this because it can help you understand those people in your life who struggle to love themselves and who define themselves by what others say about them. This book really helped me to know who I am as a child of God.
