My Own Worst Enemy by Janet Davis

Sometimes your biggest obstacle is yourself.
You know you do great things if you must stopped getting in your own way. But most days, self-doubt, fear, and the seductive whispers of insecurity have you second guessing yourself -before you have even started.

Writer and speaker Janet Davis shows you how to break the destructive cycle of shame and self doubt to achieve your full potential. Through lessons from her own life and examples of modern and biblical women, she reveals that every woman is called to shine, and you are no exception.

Learn how to break destructive patterns in order to live out your purpose in God's kingdom, bringing the sense of fulfillment you've been longing for.

My Own Worst Enemy was a wonderfully reflective read that I spent a couple of weeks using as part of my quiet time reflecting and with the Lord. I loved how Janet Davis intertwined stories of herself or other women that she knew with the women of the Bible and displayed clearly how both modern and biblical women struggle with the same issues of insecurity, pride, etc.

Each chapter was clearly and concisely written and included wonderful discussion and contemplation questions before and after the chapter. I was able to create quite a bible study for myself with this book. I think that this book would make an excellent book club read for women or even a bible study group.

Overall, I thought this book was excellently written and both motivating and convicting as I absorbed each chapter. I would highly recommend it to any woman, whether she is struggling with emotional/self esteem issues or not.

I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for free in exchange for an honest review.
