My 7-year-old son Ethan celebrated his birthday recently.  At dinner at Chickfila, our family went around and said something we appreciated about Ethan.

He’s kind.

He’s funny.

Ethan’s good at learning new things.

After a few more accolades, Ethan said, “I like everything about me!”

That was so funny!  Most of us don’t feel that way and that’s why Proverbs 31 executive director Renee Swope has lovingly written a new book titled, A Confident Heart:  How to Stop Doubting Yourself & Live in the Security of God’s Promises.

You’ll enjoy Renee’s sweetness and candor.  She writes about her parents divorce when she was 2, the pain of breaking up with an ex-boyfriend, and the neighborhood “police” coming down on her because the paint on her windowsills and porch columns was peeling.  How do you live confidently when you are constantly questioning yourself? 

The book addresses key issues like:

When doubt whispers “I’m Not Good Enough,” “I’m Such a Failure,” “I Don’t Have Anything Special to Offer,” “I Can’t Stop Worrying,” and “I Can’t Follow God Consistently.”

Renee has a great resource that compares what I say (My life is too hard) to what God says (Let Me help you) along with a Scriptural promise (Ps 91:15 for this example). 

If you want to doubt yourself less and live more, you will really benefit from Renee Swope’s A Confident Heart.  Thank you Revell for my review copy!
