Sintesi dell'editore

Let's be honest: the life you're leading isn't the one you've always dreamt of. And maybe the person you've become isn't who you imagined you'd be. Sure, you can work longer, love harder, and eat better. You can scrub the surface of your life until it gleams. But that won't address the fact that you've somehow lost sight of who you really are.

Working from the core message of Ephesians 1:11, Jo Saxton implores women to reject mistaken identities. Relying on personal stories from her own life, she identifies key scenarios where identities develop that are not true to God's vision, demonstrating the importance of knowing one's name, embracing the gifts you've been given, confronting body issues, managing seasons of depression and grief, and letting go of perfectionism.

Through Biblical examination of texts where identities are in question or being developed, she invites listeners to accept being seen and known by a loving God - and to allow their broken stories to become redemptive ones.

Just awesome

The book was first of all captivating. The stories and her way of communicating them was just amazing. They come alive !! Best of all, The message was transformative. What a powerful truth of who God made us to be. So unlike what the world and our own ideS y’all us we are. This book is an oasis in the middle of a dry desert. I needed it and I’m sure many more will too. Thank you Jo!!!!

Dream Big!

I loved this book! It will be one of my references through different seasons to encourage me to dream big and to embrace my purpose and my God-given Identity. I identified with Joe's personal stories. I love the way she also used Bible stories to help explain various topics related to broken identities.

Encouraging and solid worldview

Jo does a great job of both encouraging us and grounding us in biblical truth. I especially appreciated her perspective and found a ton of common thinking ground with her, despite the fact that we had such different life experiences. She is smart, funny and approachable as a female leader. Thanks for writing from your heart in a way that is strong and wily, but also truthful. It inspires me to use my voice to create change in my life rather than simply dressing slipping on my Wonder Woman boots, redlipstick, and winging it.

to dream again

I really took this book to heart as it was the topic of our small group for Fall 2019. I didn't get to participate in a lot of the discussion because I have been unwell and in a different season of life. however, Jo was encouraging and informative. I wish there were a few more seconds between chapters and subheadings. Otherwise, it was great!

She wrote this for me; I just know it!

I was supposed to read this book months ago; I mean like 6+months ago, and for whatever reasons in life, pick one, it got stalled until a few days ago...God reminded me of it after attending IF: Gathering 2019 and I jumped on it. I could NOT put it down, or rather, turn it off on Audible, lol! I am in awe, once again, at God’s perfect timing for my life and how this book sums up the very essence of the battle I am wrestling God for during this season! The words in this book are a true gift. Could she have written it just for me? I know not, but I’ll tell myself so anyway! Thank you Jo, for your candor, vulnerability and deep-rooted skill for cheerleading as you co-operated with God to forge these pages. It is the kind of book that will transcend seasons in our lives; one that will serve us as we revisit its pages again and again as we journey through this thing called life. I thank God for all the ways He helped you find your voice and know your identity for you, my friend, are paving the way to help me reach the same hearts desire! God bless you as you serve us! xo
