Jan-Feb Book Club for Cleveland-Area Ladies: “So Long, Insecurity” by Beth Moore!

Hi everyone.  I am so grateful to report that my sweet husband helped me take down the Christmas decor and that our house is now clean and settled in for the new year… and because of that, somehow I feel more settled in, too.  However… I don’t want to pack away the heart of Christmas.  For those who love Jesus Christ, EVERY DAY should be celebrated as a Christmas/Easter combination.  I’m really pondering on that these days.  Thanks for your comments on the post below.  If you have some good advice on leading teenagers to spiritual maturity in the home, please go here and share it!  I’ll be putting together a post sharing what you’ve shared with me.

On to the real reason for this post:

I wanted to let you know about a book club hosted by FBC Cleveland for the months of January and February.  Any female within driving distance is invited to participate.  {And to those of you who are not Delta residents – please feel free to get the book and join me here with your thoughts.  I’ll be posting about the book on this blog from time to time, and I hope you’ll hop on and share how God is using it in your life!}

I read through this book with some friends a few years ago and can testify that God REALLY used it to break the bond of fear and some areas of insecurities  in my life.  Some of those areas were unwelcomed but all too familiar to me and I knew they were tangling me up.  But as I continued to read, pray, and absorb this message, I found others areas of fear and bondage that I didn’t even know had had a hold on me for most of my life.  I praise God to report freedom from bondage in all of these areas!  I’m still tempted toward entrapment from time to time, but through God and the weapons of defeat I learned from His word and this book, I am now victorious!  I know God will use this message in a mighty way in each life that participates!

So… won’t you come along?

January-February Ladies’  Book Club: So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore.

Sunday nights at 4:30, beginning on Sunday, January 20.

{in the “Jimmy Breeland” Sunday School classroom, which is the room next to the parlor}

Books can be purchased that night for $10, or you can purchase your own and get started now. 😉

This is what our friend, Beth has to say about this book:

“We’re insecure. You and me and every woman.  In fact, chronic insecurity is a cultural epidemic, but almost no one is talking about it. And it ticks me off.

Today’s women face unrealistic expectations, and then we’re bombarded with unrealistic images every day, making us more and more insecure. We’re insecure about everything from our looks to our worth as women, from our relationships to our futures, and everything else in between. You name it, and we’re probably insecure about it.

Let’s be honest here.  Insecurity makes us miserable. It cripples us. It makes us feel worthless. Insecurity has been a bad friend to us.

It doesn’t have to be this way. It’s time to say “So long!” to insecurity. How? First we have to understand it, and the good news is that insecurity is understandable. The even better news is that insecurity is curable.

It’s time we girls help each other out so we can be the best friends, sisters, wives, mothers, daughters that we can possibly be. In So Long, Insecurity, you’ll join me on a quest for real, lasting, soul-deep security.

I hope you’ll take up her invitation and ours and join us in this book study.  There is now a workbook that accompanies the book, and if you want to, feel free to get the workbook and work through it as you read the book.  If you are interested in grabbing a book and getting started today, here are the links to the kindle version, the “hard copy”, and the workbook.

Let me know if you’ll be joining us virtually as we lose our insecurities in 2013!!!
