Product Description

Meet Kathi, a disguised perfectionist and Cheri, a formerly confused and exhausted poster girl for playing it safe. With unabashed empathy and humor, they invite you to rebel against perfection. Step-by-step they'll teach you how to challenge and change unhealthy beliefs. As they free you from always seeking more or needing the approval of others, you'll discover a new, braver way of living. At last, you'll exchange outdated views of who you should be for a clearer vision of who you are in Christ.

Publisher's Description

Do you know a woman who works her heart out but never gets anything "just right"? Who feels like she falls short of being the Christian wife, mother, daughter, and friend she longs to be?

Sound like anyone you know? Perhaps even the girl in the mirror? If so, Cheri Gregory and Kathi Lipp have good news for you.

You're not a bad person. You've simply been obeying some really bad rules for far too long, rules that promised paradise but misled you into perfectionism, people-pleasing, and procrastination prison. But you don't have to stay stuck in discouragement and resentment. Escape is possible. Rescue is waiting.

This sassy self-help guide offers been-there-felt-that, girlfriend-to-girlfriend empathy and experience that will help you

  • tell the difference between reasonable rules and bad rules
  • identify the bad rules you need to break
  • discover biblical wisdom to overcome the bad rules in your life

As you stop trying to measure up so that others will be impressed, you'll experience what it means to "let the peace of Christ rule in your heart."

    SUMMARY:

    Perfectionismboth a blessing and a burden. Two authors who have been there now help others handle perfection. With explanations, examples, compassion, and trust, Kathi Lipp and Cheri Gregory share the twelve ways to living braver and ultimately, more enjoyably.

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Sometimes the things we need most are the hardest to hear and reach. Just the case with a book on perfectionism for me! Unfortunately, I found myself nodding in agreement and answering yes to far too many of the questions. As a result, I realized the cures may be harder than expected. The book encourages, guides, leads and emboldens through the process though, almost as if holding a hand. Due to the set-up of the book containing personal examples, quotes, questionnaires, reflections and straight-out truths, the book is easy to read and follow. Letting go of perfectionism can be hard but the end result may just be blissful! From fear to bravery, unreasonable to reachable, frustration to happiness, The Cure for the Perfect Life iswellperfect! Thanks ladies!!

    I was on board completely for reading this book when I heard about that Kathi Lipp and Cheri Gregory had wrote it. I admit that as I first started to read it I didn't think it would have a hugely profound message for me personally. But, it did! I think all of us find ourselves needing to escape "Try-harder Living" and if we're not there yet being aware of the pitfalls can really help as well as understanding friends and family that may have a greater struggle with "perfect".

    I'm an imperfect wife and mom that has felt all alone. This book helped me learn more about who I am and gave me some great insight on how I can create a better me. I don't need to try so hard to be someone I'm not and it's okay to say no. When I picked up this book I wasn't sure I would make it all of the way through...but I did. This book won't cure anything but it will give you an amazing view of your life through taking several short quizzes. You will learn more about yourself and be on your way to approaching situations differently. You can fight off people-pleasing, perfectionism, performancism, and procrastination by taking it one step at a time. We can do all things through Him who gives us strength. Pick up one for yourself and find a bravery buddy. You'll be glad you did.

    This book is FANTASTIC! It's a great help and reminder that we are all in the same boat. None of us are perfect, even if we try to make it appear that way. We all fight the same battles (bullies) within ourselves. Kathi Lipp and Cheri Gregory do a great job of identifying these bullies and giving us the tools and know-how to fight them off.

    I highly recommend that every woman, everywhere read this book!
