God has given you gifts so you can fulfill His purpose for your life, but if you're like a lot of people, you may not have recognized your talents yet. Start asking God to show you something special about the way He's made you.
To some people, He's given a very tender, compassionate heart, and some He has wired to lead others effectively. Others, He has given a gift of being able to communicate clearly, to teach, to make scientific discoveries, or to write beautiful music. Only you can discover all the dynamic gifts He's placed in you.
Become Authentically, Uniquely You because God is never going to help you be anyone but yourself. He loves you just as you are. Let God use you, with all your strengths and weaknesses, and transform you from the inside out to do something powerful beyond your wildest dreams.
Tell us a bit about yourself:
I am a child of God, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, and a friend. I love serving in my local church and making memories with family and friends.
Name of Book:
Authentically, Uniquely You.
What drew you to read this book:
The title. Authentically, Uniquely You is an engaging and attractive title that piqued my interest.
What impact did this book have on your life:
Initially, reading this book, it was to write a book review. However, the book began impacting me and changing an opinion of myself that I had formed. With every turn of a page, it felt as if I was being guided and encouraged to love myself more. The way God loves me. As a result, I felt a little less anxious and less sad. Such is the kind of book I will be referring to from time to time whenever I need to be motivated and reminded Whose I am.
In a paragraph, what is the main point of the book:
This book consists of 25 chapters in a simple format. It is information-packed and easy to read. Joyce Meyer writes about her life, her past, and her marriage. In the book, Joyce Meyer becomes vulnerable to the reader by using her experiences and mistakes to illustrate becoming Authentically, Uniquely You. She writes with authority and conviction, grounding her teachings with the Word of God. The back of the book is 'Appendix A' and 'Appendix B'; listing over 50 scriptures affirming God's love for us and those that will empower you to love others. This list excludes the multiple scriptures mentioned in the chapters throughout the book. Joyce Meyer writes about failure, rejection, comparing yourself to others, being controlled, and controlling people, approval addiction, the four types of temperaments, and more. Affirming that it is our responsibility to work on ourselves, Joyce Meyer reiterates that we cannot do all of this without God's help. That we depend on the assurance that God created us the way he did, with our unique characteristics and skills, for His purpose. My advice when reading this book is to have an open heart and allow the truths written in this book to enter it.
Who would benefit from reading this book:
We all need to be encouraged from the word of God, I would recommend it for everyone.
