The author writes this book in a very loving style

My Own Worst Enemy, How To Stop Holding Yourself Back is written by Janet Davis and published by Bethany House.

This book explores the idea that women are their own worst enemy when trying to discover and accept themselves for who they really are. The author examines ways women sabotage their own progress in gaining a positive view of who they were created to be.

There were many positives about this book. I thought the numerous examples from the Bible used were a great way to solidify the principles the author was trying to teach. I liked that the scriptures were right there in the book with the section she was writing about so you did not have to have a Bible handy for each reference mentioned. I also liked the loving manner of the author’s writing style. I felt the author’s book was written from a non-judgmental viewpoint.

On the negative side I felt like the book really sat on certain points too long. You can make your point with one or two examples and then move onto the next one. With that said, I still enjoyed the book and feel like it is an excellent book for any woman struggling with low self-esteem. There are questions at the end of each chapter that can really help you make this book and its principles a very personal journey. If you take the time to do each question you can not help but grow more into the person God created you to be.

I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

I gave this book 4/5 stars.
