Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat {Deseret Book Review}

• Why do clothing stores hang fun-house mirrors in their dressing rooms?

• The laundry doesn’t cry when it’s not folded, so why should I?
• Can I be confident even if an elevator calls me fat? 
Michelle Wilson’s humorous yet poignant insights help women examine the limitations we place on ourselves out of insecurity and self-doubt. We have faith in God, but do we know that He has faith in us? 
When we see ourselves with God’s eternal perspective, we can feel confident and whole—even in our imperfection. Just think what we might accomplish if we truly believe that we are more important than we know, stronger than we realize, and extraordinary in every way.
Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat?
This book is coming out at a perfect time of year.  Isn't this the time of year where we focus on new beginnings?  The time of year where we try to make changes that encourage us to become better.  For me, this book was in the right place, at the right time.  I feel like I am full of insecurities, one of which, is always that I need to lose weight.

In this book, author Michelle Wilson focuses on how we can get ourselves out of the rut of insecurity and discover that we are beautiful creations of our Heavenly Father.  Right up front she tells readers that this book is an "extended pep talk" that will give you motivation and the ability to overcome the depressing thoughts that drag us down.  She also shares that it is much more than that though when she emphasizes the profound and simple message of the book, that we can "find joy, peace, and confidence when we learn to see ourselves…and life through God's eyes.

This is a pretty short read (only 176 pages) but it is BIG on wisdom.  Using real life experiences and personal stories, this is a book that will give you courage to face the mirror everyday and see a lovely child of God.  I really enjoyed it!
