I got a twinge of “ouch” when I read the title. Before I had even cracked the cover or read a single line of text, I knew this book was gonna be a doozie for the soul. “I think we should read this next,” my dear friend said. In hindsight, I probably should have lied and claimed to have already read it, but I figured that would be a “no-good, very-ugly lie,” so I bought the book on Amazon and started reading. SHEESH! It’s a good thing she was the one who suggested it because in all honesty, I shy away from the books that shout conviction from the cover. There’s a reason why I tried to run, and I’m so very glad I didn’t because wowza, I needed to read this book.
So what book am I giving away?
I am giving away TWO copies of Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard by Jennie Allen.
And why am I giving away this book?
- Because I tried to run and maybe one of you is trying to run, too.
- Because it’s good.
- Because it hits a “soul home-run” every single time I pick it up.
So what are a few of my favorite line(s) from this book?
I don’t know how I can choose, but I’ll make myself choose this one.
“We strive to be seen, to be known, to matter. We’re desperate to believe we are doing a good job at whatever has been entrusted to us. But we are not enough. We are not God. We don’t have all the answers, all the wisdom, all the strength, all the energy. We are finite, sinful beings. And that is okay.”
So how can you win a copy of this book?
In the comment section below, share a blessing from the past two days (NO CHEATING) and on Thursday at 10AM (EST), I will select TWO winners!
Happy reading (convicting-covered books)!
