“Here’s the scandalous truth: we can be loved, accepted, happy, and less stressed without being perfect.”
- Holley Gerth
Holley Gerth discusses with biblical scripture how the “struggle with the pressure to be perfect” can affect a woman’s self-inflicted list of high expectations of being unrealistically perfect in all area of life. This includes the need to have the following: complete control, absolute knowledge, rightful glory, self-sustaining love, and a secure identity.
Each chapter includes questions or sentences to complete with your own thoughts on the subject material covered. Chapter 6: Daring to Be Who You Already Are gave me a lesson on who I really am without knowing that I was missing a few characteristics about myself.
Struggling with self-perfection also brings into light how you perceive others around you and “letting go of the perfection other people’ learning to exted God’s grace instead, reaffirming the grace God extends to us. This devotional also includes a study guide for individual and group study looking deeper into perfection learning how to release that need. I recommend to everyone wanting information to release the need for perfection and believe this is a great guide for study groups.
