Book review

Shame. Guilt. We all feel it, live it or have it. To say we don't would be a lie. Unfortunately our our guilt and shame came ingrained into us so many years ago. In the garden with Adam and Eve we reaped their misfortune. But we were also redeemed by the most incredible King. The King who wipes our slates clean. He makes us whole again. Lifts us out of the darkest and deepest depths and brings us a good ol' slap in the face dose of reality.

In reading the book Un-Ashamed by Heather Davis Nelson she says that Joy is a hallmark of one who is free from shame. In place of this shame Jesus brings us honor, beauty, joy, comfort, justice, favor and freedom. <---- mind blown right?!

I think too often we hide behind the screen of a "perfect self". This day in age so many of us are afraid to let down our guard for fear that others might see how imperfect they truly are. When you scroll through your Facebook feeds you only hear the sugar coated versions of others. Seldomly do you hear real, nitty gritty, raw or truth. Should people be negative all the time? Heck no! Negativity is a real stinkpot. It smells worse than Livy's diapers. But wouldn't it be nice to hear that you are not the only mom who went the entire day with her pants on INSIDE OUT?! {true story!}

I feel guilt when I realize I haven't done something that I think I should have done. Or I feel shame when I snap at my kids a wee bit too harshly when really it is not them it is ME. But you know what? Forgiveness happens when you are willing to let it it in. It sucks. But it is reality and we are all guilty of it!

Who here is ready to live a life that is real. Showing your true self. Putting every effort into placing your best foot forward? You HAVE to read this book!
