Book Review: My Own Worst Enemy by Janet Davis

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Women Everywhere!

My Own Worst Enemy: How to Stop Holding Yourself Back (Paperback)

If you are a Christian woman and unsure of your own abilities or doubt your competence you need to read My Own Worst Enemy, by Janet Davis, Bethany House Publishers, 2012.

Perhaps you feel like your opinion doesn’t matter or, maybe you’re convinced your ideas aren’t good enough to bring to fruition, or what if you believe that you don’t measure up to others? Through the author’s transparency and confession of her own deepest fears the reader has no choice but to listen and believe that, maybe, just maybe, “If she can do it, there might be hope for me.”

The author uses Biblical scriptures to affirm her assertion that God made us to shine and God gave us talents that He wants all of us to use. Through chapters such as: The Unlived Life , Identity, Choosing to Say No and Choosing to Tell your Story, the author further identifies common themes experienced by women who mistakenly believe they are only to help others achieve their goals and thus end up hiding their own God given gifts.

This is an excellent book for women to re-read over again when they doubt their place in this world and it will certainly help them to answer the question “Why did God Create Me and How Can I Use My Gifts In Service To God.” I highly recommend this book.

I was provided this book free of charge from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for writing a public book review. The publisher’s did not include any expectation as to how they wanted me to review this book.
