I’m a bookaholic. I truly am. As I write this, ten feet away from me are three boxes of books. They traveled with us from California to Tennessee…and Paul begged me to get rid of them. I thinned the herd but there’s no way I’m parting with these select few.
Why am I telling you all this?
Because “The Cure for the Perfect Life” is going to live with me forever, too. And, once I get myself a bookshelf in our home here, it will sit tall and pretty beside her other book-friends.
Kathi and Cheri do a wonderful job at gently pointing out four BIG obstacles many of us suffer from; Perfectionism, People-Pleasing, Performancism and my personal dance partner…Procrastination. They’re two women I know you’ll love to get to know. Their faith in God alongside their transparency makes this book a real gem. They share from a place of having “been there” which is the much-needed spoonful of sugar that makes the medicine go down.
Hello, my name is Joanne and I suffer from chronic Procrastination with a mild disorder of People-Pleasing thrown in for good measure.
How about you? Any of those four P’s ring a bell in your life? Then do your husband and your family and your best girlfriend a favor…get this book. If you’re not convinced, here’s a few more tidbits to whet your whistle:
- exchange outdated views of who you “should be” for a clear do-able vision of who you are in Christ.
- take control of that too long to-do list so it no longer controls you.
- stop striving to maintain an image and live with more freedom day-to-day.
- overcome the tyranny of “more” and radically live with the abundance of “enough.”
- stop trying to earn others’ approval and learn to rest in God’s lavish unconditional love.
