    My recommended resource for you is Lisa Bevere’s “The True Measure of a Woman.” I read this book recently with two other women, both of whom seem to have low images of themselves. Interestingly, what I discovered in this book was that my view of myself was tainted by experiences from my childhood and teen years, of which I wasn’t even aware!

    Lisa is a wonderful storyteller and steeped in God’s word, which I always look for with any author. She strips away what our culture has taught us to use as a measuring tool for ourselves, and instead shows us whose opinion ultimately matters for our eternal worth. This is a perfect read to help combat today’s culture that shifts from day to day and rest on God’s lasting value of who He’s made you to be!

    Lisa’s message helped me put words to the negative influences from my past to acknowledge them and put them in their proper place – in Jesus’ hands. This book also summed up what the scripture says about how I am to live, as a woman fearfully and wonderfully made and wholly loved by my Savior.
