Enough About Me

Find Lasting Joy in the Age of Self

Jen Oshman

Quantity

Women today feel a constant pressure to improve themselves and just never feel like they’re “enough.” They live their daily lives disheartened, disillusioned, and disappointed. That’s because joy doesn’t come from a new self-improvement strategy; it comes from rooting their identity in who God says they are and what he has done on their behalf. This book calls women to look away from themselves in order to find the abundant life God offers them—contrasting the cultural emphasis on personal improvement and empowerment with what the Scriptures say about a life rooted, built up, and established in the gospel.

A refreshing read in the face of everything secular culture tells us about ourselves

This book starts with addressing the temptation to prioritise ourselves and go along with what culture encourages us to believe and say about ourselves. What I love about this book is that it is all about the gospel - knowing the gospel, growing in our understanding of the gospel, rehearsing the gospel to ourselves, praying that God would remind us of the beauty of the gospel! In a society that is often looking for the next great new idea, I love the reminder that we don't need something new - Jesus is enough and we have all we need in Christ. There are reflection questions at the end of each chapter too, so this would work great as a book to read one-to-one or in a small group as well.
