Publisher's Description

You can say good-bye to the person you've been pretending to be!

Life is often messy. God makes provision to help us move beyond our messes.

Oftentimes our first instincts are to hide, deny, ignore, or run. In Move On best-selling author Vicki Courtney helps readers come clean with their muddy messes, revealing the deeper issues they must face, including: 
  • the need for approval
  • struggles and broken dreams
  • shame
  • legalism
  • idols
  • Christian snobbery
It is in the middle of our messes, Vicki says, that Mercy shows up and offers us a safe place to process our struggles, imperfections, doubts, and fears. Once we face our messes, God, with his sweet mercy, can help us to get real, deal, and truly move on. Then with Mercy by our side, we are able to break free and experience the grace and freedom God intends.

    This book is jam packed, from cover to cover, with just plain ole' awesomeness. There are personal stories, excerpts from books and relevant Bible verses to showcase the message of mercy in every day life. Vicki is honest and straight forward, which I love. She shares her own stories honestly, even when they're messy. Often, as Christians, we judge though we should not. Myself included y'all. Whether that judgement is in silence or aloud, we are guilty of doing so from time to time. How many times we don't extend grace to those who need it the most. But yet, we expect grace to be given back to us. Vicki goes on to show that mercy is so freely given and to find the light in every darkness.

    This was a great read and I would highly recommend this book to anyone, no matter your age or stage in life. But especially to those of us who feel as though we have some sort of shortcoming. This book will challenge you and, if you let it, this book will change you.

    This book was provided to me free of charge by Book Look in return for my honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    It's time to quite pretending, Courtney says. It's time to take off the masks time to be real and share our messes. She did. Author of books on sexual purity, she didn't hide it when her engaged son came to her and weepingly told her his fiance may be pregnant.

    Concerned about the reaction to her blog post, others responded to her honesty with stories of their own imperfections. Courtney realized we are all a mess.

    This book is for people who are tired of pretending and are ready to find the courage to move on. That means admitting to God that we can't do it on our own, that we need His help. It means coming clean with each other. Courtney admits this is a scary thing. Others might be uncomfortable with our honesty.

    She reminds us that in God's economy, every struggle has a purpose. She helps us understand that our sins are forgiven. She gives teaching on how to deal with shame and legalism, about our need for approval and dealing with our idols.

    Courtney's book is great encouragement when we mess up -which we are going to do! We are all prone to wander. She doesn't pull any punches. She is honest with her own messes and sincere in her encouragement to us. We all need this insightful book as we finish the messy race.

    Courtney has added questions at the end of each chapter. They are good for personal reflection and would be great for use in a trusted group setting.

    Food for thought: You know you are maturing in the faith when you pay more attention to your own sins and faults rather than the sins and faults of others. (159)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    Starting in the preface and continuing on in each and every chapter, Vicki relates personal stories, excerpts from books, and relevant Bible verses and stories, to illuminate the message of mercy in every day life. She asks honest questions that will challenge the reader to truly examine their own life and faith, and really give the reader cause to reflect and think. Often, as Christians, we judge though we should not- whether that judgement is in silence or aloud, we are guilty of doing so from time to time. Additionally, we fail to extend grace and mercy to those who may just be in need of it the most. Why do we do this when God extends His unending mercy freely to us? Vicki goes on to illustrate the mercy that is so freely given and to find the light in every darkness. She does so in ways that are easy to understand and yet also challenging to the soul. By relating personal experiences, Vicki makes this book personable and by illuminating with scripture, she offers a solid and loving testimony of mercy. This book sets up you for a personal challenge to examine your life, your past, and your soul to take the steps that you need to move on and in God's mercy.

    This book is about being honest with yourself about your sins and your life and how when you do that, your life is better and how Jesus died for our sins so once he has forgiven us there is no need to shame yourself because the past is in the past.

    I like how the book after each chapter has questions to think about what you just read. One question says " How would you characterize your church? Is it a hospital for broken people or a showroom for polished pretenders? I would say my Kingdom Hall is for people who pretend a lot about their life and struggle with being honest. How would you say your core group of Christian friends is more likely to engage in the pretender game or come clean about struggles they are experiencing? I would say in this case come clean about struggles they maybe facing. Think about your average day and take a quick inventory of some of your behaviors that could be labeled as people pleasing. Write down examples that come to mind. Mine is always saying yes to people even when I don't want to do something. I just can't say no. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being very important, how important is it for you to have others approval? Why do you think that is? I would say a 10. I care alot about what people say about me and think about me, I guess I just need peoples approval in my life.

    All in all I enjoyed this book and read it all in one afternoon just lying in bed.
