The Real Me PDF/EPUB î The Real MOBI :↠

The Real Me Might be closer to four stars I liked it really well It wasn t super lame and shallow, though I didn t like the Message translation Scriptures shared It doesn t even sound like the Bible any But that s another rant for another time LolThis book is honest and straightforward, a call to love Jesus and see yourself as the art that He had made and is making It was pretty solid. While this book was an enjoyable read, it was very much centered on the life changing realization Grant experienced There are constant references back to that moment That isn t a bad thing, necessarily, but it did get a little old The stories throughout the book were interesting, and supported the ideas in this book I also really appreciated the constant references back to scripture If you were so inclined, there are also sections within The Real Me in which you can write your responses to While this book was an enjoyable read, it was very much centered on the life changing realization Grant experienced There are constant references back to that moment That isn t a bad thing, necessarily, but it did get a little old The stories throughout the book were interesting, and supported the ideas in this book I also really appreciated the constant references back to scripture If you were so inclined, there are also sections within The Real Me in which you can write your responses to questions Grant asks, and hopefully discover the real you along the way This book wasn t life changing, but it is still a good read and I liked it It doesn t take long only 145 pgs and you might discover something about yourself along the way You won t know unless you try It didn t knock my socks off but to be fair I m not the intended demographic for this book As a teen I probably would have appreciated the messageShe does a decent job of telling her story and making it clear that we are all a work in progress through Christ. This book, written by a Christian singer song writer, uses the author s past eating disorder bulimia, borderline anorexia as a springboard for discussion about girls self image, the media s portrayals of beauty and how God views us The book has some strong points and weak points Of course, it all depends on what you re looking for Personally, I felt that the weak points were weaker than the strong points were strong, but it really did grip my interest and kept me reading Not something I This book, written by a Christian singer song writer, uses the author s past eating disorder bulimia, borderline anorexia as a springboard for discussion about girls self image, the media s portrayals of beauty and how God views us The book has some strong points and weak points Of course, it all depends on what you re looking for Personally, I felt that the weak points were weaker than the strong points were strong, but it really did grip my interest and kept me reading Not something I would re read.The bulk of the book is the author s explanations of how situations in her life developing the eating disorder, deciding to get out of it, becoming a professional singer, photo shoots, etc have impacted her and how girls shouldn t let the media dictate standards of beauty I think this is a valuable message, but it read about the same as every other book that tells you the same thing in a not very inspiring way.Though the introduction and the back blurb makes it sound like it s about her eating disorder, that s actually a relatively minor part in my opinion The principles she talks about are just as applicable to other struggles Also, don t read this if you want to know how to get out of an eating disorder She actually glosses over that part because she focuses on what drove her to it She jumps around chronologically, so you don t get a good idea of the events in her life She goes by theme and pulls in relevant anecdotes, but I think it would behelpful for me to have gotten a fuller idea of how her journey unfolded, in order to make itapplicable to me.There are also short excerpts about other girls and women both historical and contemporary, old and young which honestly didn t do much for me I would ve rather heardfrom the author Or at least an explanation for why she chose some of them, because I wasn t always sure of their relevance Some of them were very good, though I suspect that such anecdotes can be hit and miss Not every story connects with every reader Short spaces are included for journaling in response to her questions every now and then, which I appreciated There is a list of additional resources in the back and, my favorite part, a section called Who God Says I Am It s a short list of attributes characteristics and an accompanying Bible verse for each E.g I am made new in Christ cites 2 Corinthians 5 17 Overall, I wasn t particularly moved by this book, but I did like reading it and I did get something out of it Even though it s billed as for every girl, I suspect that I m not necessarily a part of its target audience A lot of the journaling questions weren t really applicable to me not just because I don t have an eating disorder and a lot of the underlying assumptions she was making about the readers attitudes didn t fit me well So, that said, I might recommend this to someone who I thought might benefit from itthan I did Perhaps someone younger maybe in their middle to lateish teens , who reads beauty magazines and is in a boy crazy phase I m not saying that those are the only girls with self esteem and self image issues, but I think this book addresses those fronts in particular The tone of the book is very genuine very good and heartfelt This is a spectacular book I highly recommend to any woman, whether you are struggling with self esteem issues or not For someone who has been told I m worthless and dealt with cutting and suicidal thoughts, this book is amazing God has created everyone with a distinct purpose Our goal is to fulfill the purpose God has for us.
