Letting Go of Perfect

Letting Go of Perfect: Women, Expectations, and Authenticity
This book by Amy E. Speigel is all about looking at our expectations for our lives as women. Although I don't agree with every conclusion drawn by Amy, I certainly see her point in more closely examining our lives and what we are striving for. Many times I find myself following along with the crowd instead of searching to see who God created me to be.

Amy uses many real life stories of her life and family to show the kind of inspection our lives deserve. She tells many of the choices she has made for herself and her family, not in a way to make you feel that you must make the same choices but to encourage the reader to actually think about it and make a choice instead of following culture. She covers topics like how we dress, how we face hardship, relationships, prioritizing time and commitments, and other issues that affect our well-being.

The ideas and information in Letting Go of Perfect are eye-opening and thought provoking. I however had a hard time following Amy's train of thought to a succinct point in many of the chapters. I probably wouldn't choose to read it again because of her writing style, but I am glad to have gained another's perspective on life.
