Blog Tour - Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat?

About the book from Deseret Book
• Why do clothing stores hang fun-house mirrors in their dressing rooms?

• The laundry doesn’t cry when it’s not folded, so why should I?

• Can I be confident even if an elevator calls me fat?

Michelle Wilson’s humorous yet poignant insights help women examine the limitations we place on ourselves out of insecurity and self-doubt. We have faith in God, but do we know that He has faith in us?

When we see ourselves with God’s eternal perspective, we can feel confident and whole—even in our imperfection. Just think what we might accomplish if we truly believe that we are more important than we know, stronger than we realize, and extraordinary in every way.

My Review: I really enjoyed reading this book! Michelle has a way of writing that sucks you right into whatever she's writing about. I love how she tells personal stories and humorous anecdotes about herself and her family. She's not afraid to be herself and let everyone get to "know" her a little bit. That's awesome and it benefits all of us to live that way. I learned a lot about myself and the way women behave from this quick read. And I have to say that I LOVE the picture on the cover! 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
