Do you feel even more miserable in your quest to love yourself more?
We're often told that self-love is the key to happiness. Instagram influencers, mommy bloggers, self-help gurus, and even Christian teachers assure us that if we can just learn to love ourselves, we'll be successful, secure, and complete. But that isn't working. Instead of feeling fulfilled, our pursuit of self-love leaves us trapped in an exhausting cycle: as we strive for self-acceptance, we become addicted to self-improvement.
The truth is that we will never find satisfaction inside ourselves, because we are the problem. We struggle with feelings of inadequacy because we are inadequate. On our own, we are not good enough, smart enough, or pretty enough. We're simply not enough. And that's okay, because God is.
In Jesus, we are given a way out of our toxic culture of self-love and into a joyful life of relying on Him for wisdom, satisfaction, and purpose. We don't have to wonder what it's all about anymore. This is it.
This book isn't about fighting your not-enoughness, it's about embracing it. Allie Beth Stuckey, a Christian, conservative new mom, discovered the dead-end of self-love, and she wants to help you combat the false teachings and self-destructive mindsets that got her there. In this book, she reveals the myths popularized by our culture of trendy narcissism, shows where they manifest in politics and the church, and breaks them apart with biblical truth and practical wisdom.
