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.

    I will admit that it took me quite a few chapters to embrace this book. It just didnt speak to me for a while. I felt like the writer was talking to an audience with HUGE hidden secrets, or extreme struggles with shame. I also did not relate to her 20 years of church experience where she was made to feel like it was a big faade, she was not embraced warmly, but was treated like she was unworthy and unable to make the cut. She certainly did not experience openness and honesty in any circles. I am thankful that this has not been my ENTIRE experience like it was for her.

    It did take a while for me to feel like this book was speaking to me, but in the end I really appreciated her thoughts and will take some important messages away from her writing.

    I really appreciated her writing about the difference between living as a sinner saved by grace, vs someone who has been made clean by Jesus and is now one of his Saints. When I consider this mentality, it changes me. Instead of constantly perceiving myself as a sinner, and falling back into that low expectations- I feel challenged to live as the Saint I have been made to be. It motivates me in a completely new way. When I let myself be completely overwhelmed by what Christ has done, I want to live up to my new identity. With the same power Christ used to overcome the grave, I can overcome sins that are entangling me.

    Heard a review about this book from KCBI radio station in Dallas. My family has faced most of these same situations and I believe the author speaks truth. I love the hope this message inspires. Bought two for my daughters.

    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.
