Am I Enough?

Am I Enough?

Embracing the Truth About Who You Are

Grace Valentine

There are times that I often wonder if I am enough. Am I enough for my husband, for my kids, for my grandchildren? Am I enough for God? This is something we all struggle with and it is happening more and more with young women. They see how much emphasis is put on beauty, on high end clothes, shoes, handbags and even cars. The culture is extremely toxic, hard to live in. What is the answer to this problem?

Grace Valentine’s new book Am I Enough? Embracing the Truth About Who You Are will help you see that you are enough. Grace has experienced these same issues and she is telling us her story to confront the lies that women hear everyday. Some of these lies are:

You are beautiful because a guy told you so,
Love must be earned,
You should forget your past,
You will never be enough, and the list goes on.

These lies tear us down, cause us to doubt who we really are, and doubt that we are worth of love. These lies are wrong, we are enough. God tell us that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. We are made in is image. We belong to Him. He also tells us “You are enough for me, come as you are.”

I recommend picking up a copy of Am I Enough? today! This is definitely a life-changing book.

Craig Groeschel is the founding and senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv. He is also the author of many titles including Alter Ego, Soul Detox, The Christian Atheist, It and several others. His newest book is #Struggles: Following Jesus in a Selfie-Centered World. In #Struggles, Craig touches on the subject of social media and how our lives are centered on it as well as technology. We will often compare ourselves to our friend’s and wish our lives could be like there’s or wish we had what they had. And when we do this, we become less satisfied.

 

#Struggles is broken down into eight sections:

 

Recovering Contentment: The Struggle with Comparisons

Restoring Intimacy: The Struggle with “Likes”

Revealing Authenticity: The Struggle with Control

Resurrecting Compassion: The Struggle with Desensitization

Reviving Integrity: The Struggle with Secret Impurity

Remembering Encouragement: The Struggle with Constant Criticism

Reclaiming Worship: The Struggle with Idolatry

Replenishing Rest: The Struggle with Constant Distraction

 

Craig as also included a small section entitled “10 Commandments for Using Social Media and Technology.”

 

I will be the first to admit I look at my “friends” on social media and wish I had their life or wish I had the things they had, but it makes me unhappy and unsatisfied with the life I had. I have to know and believe that God has me where he wants me and I don’t need to covet what they have. Social Media and Technology has taken over our lives and we need to take our lives back.

 

I highly recommend this book to all!
