I am using my husband's account to write this, just to clear that up:)

I have been trying to broaden my Christian music listening and came across Natalie Grant's Awaken CD. Through looking up information about her I was led to this book. I am glad too! Natalie shares her battle with bulimia candidly. At first I was put off by the description of her making herself throw up, but I realized she does not want to gloss over it. It's not pretty and that's the point she emphasizes. You may not have ever faced an eating disorder, but there are other ways girls (and even boys) strive for attention and acceptance. The world we live in is not so concerned with what's inside the package as it is with the package itself. Some of things she had to say were things I could spout off as a Christian, but hearing her revelation of those simple truths, cemented them in my heart. "God never promised it would be easy but He did promise He'd be there for us" is one example. Something as Christians you hear a lot but there are moments that make it more real to us. That's what this book is about. It's about realizing God's plans for us, how He views us and how much He loves us. Natalie repeats that she is not perfect, even at the end of the book. This is not meant to make all of your problems go away, or to change your perception of yourself from "yeck" to "WOW!" What is written upon these pages is the road that got her to a place where she can live with herself. She accepts who she is. With any stronghold you may find yourself slipping back into old habits, and there are days where you'll feel beautiful and days when you just don't. This book is aimed at arming us with the knowledge (head & heart) we need to fight off the lies.

In "The Real Me," Natalie Grant opens up her own true story of her journey to self-acceptance. She shares about her battle with an eating disorder called bulimia and shows how by the grace of God she was able to turn away from it and truly begin to be herself. Her story really hit me because she wrote it so heartfelt and "real," which definitely made it relatable to my own life. It's a very important subject because I think that every girl has stood in front of the mirror and wished for something totally different than what they see, it's a part of the pressure all girls are under to look pretty and thin. At times her words can be so powerful you feel like she was speaking directly to you! Natalie taught me to stop looking to MTV and Cosmo Girl for answers and start opening up God's word for the truth! Throughout the book Natalie inserts pieces of scripture, encouraging thoughts, and quotes that really wrap the book up into a wonderful package of inspiration. I found Natalie's book very helpful and definitely changed the way I perceive myself and others. It also helped strengthen my relationship with Christ and really showed me that not only does God love me, but he sees the real me and accepts me! I think that's the point that Natalie really stresses and gets across in her book. "The Real Me" helped re-define my definition of beauty and perfection. Now I truly believe that beauty is undefined and perfection is really non-existent. This is a book that no woman should miss out on!

This book really helped me to look at myself to see what I needed to change in my life. I felt that is was very easy to relate to her and what she was going through but to also take what she was going through and to apply to what you are going through. I think this is a book that everyone can relate to and can take something away from it .

This is a great book. Every woman should read this. It's a book/workbook. There are places in the book to fill things out. It has really given me a sense of the person I am and the person god sees you as. I recommed this book to every woman.
