My Review:

This is the most gorgeous Bible that I have laid my eyes on. The skill that it takes to to do something like this is remarkable. This Bible is one you want to put up and not touch. What Bible am I talking about? It’s the new NIV Artisan Collection Bibles. There are 4 different hand painted covers to choose from. I chose the one that says I Will Sing To The Lord! We are a musical family. Music is a vital part of our lives and this one just suited me.

There are so many great features such as: the NIV Comfort Print typeface, Words of Jesus in Red, and Lined, wide margins for journals, notes and art. If you have someone who loves to take notes, or loves Bible journaling, then this is the Bible for them!

Preach to Yourself

Preach to Yourself
Hayley Morgan

 

About the Book:

Break the cycle of doubting yourself, take God at His word, and talk back with truth – a new message of freedom from bestselling coauthor of Wild and Free Hayley Morgan.

We know Christ came to speak life, but then how come our inner critic keeps showing up and stealing the mic? If we’re honest, she’s a harsh one, saying things we’d never dream of saying to others: You’ll never measure up, you’ll fail again tomorrow, you just can’t get it right.

It has been said that the eighteen inches from head to heart is the soul’s longest journey. Our head knows the good news is true, but our heart struggles to believe it, and it is in this gap that we battle to believe the promises of God.

Hayley Morgan, coauthor of bestselling book Wild and Free, has wrestled with this tension her whole life. In Preach to Yourself, she tackles it head-on to discover how we can renew our minds to renew our lives. For every woman who struggles with repetitive, negative self-talk, this book will show you how to identify the toxic loops where you get stuck and replace them with the truth of God we can believe with our whole selves.

This is not a “try harder” reprimand, it’s a “believe better” invitation: to take God at His word when He tells you who you are. Come along and learn a simple practice to break free from the lies holding you back, and step forward into the fullness of life God has planned.

My Review:

 

I don’t know about you but I am always doubting myself. Doubting that I am good mother, good wife, good friend. Doubting my salvation and so much more. I have people that try to reassure me that I am all of the above and so much more, I struggle to believe it. To say I was ecstatic to receive Hayley Morgan’s new book, Preach to Yourself, only partially describes the feeling.

In Preach to Yourself, Haley will teach us to renew our minds so we can renew our lives. Taking God’s word and using it to fight the doubt, negativity, and toxic loops we are stuck in. Learning to fight it all and take back our lives. We have to replace it all with scripture and trust God that he will help us get through it all.

We need to surround ourselves with positive influences, drama free zones, and Christ-centered people. By taking everything Hayley lays out for us, we will fight those little voices in our head. We will overcome and be the woman of Christ we are called to be.
