No More Faking Fine by Esther Fleece

We all know the drill. When you get asked how you are doing the common answer is, "I'm fine." Our society has become numb to the feelings of others and a current problem in the church, while not in all churches, is that we don't want to address anyone else's lamenting.

In No More Faking Fine Esther Fleece embraces the fact that to really move on past certain things in our lives, we must take the time to lament about them. If we don't address them, we can never fully move past and move on.  No more shutting down how we feel. It's time to embrace our emotions.

What I loved about this book is that she encourages the reader to feel how we truly feel. Literally, there is no more faking fine because we all know this is just a facade. Fleece gives you permission to really dig deep into how you really are, how you are really feeling at this point in time. She even talks about the fact that there is a book in the bible titled, Lamentations, but yet we continue to pretend we are ok. We especially have this problem when we are in church because we don't want others to see our flaws and chinks.

If there is one book I would suggest that every. single. woman reads, it would be No More Faking Fine. Because...let's be honest...women are the ones who have perfected faking fine and almost created an art of it. It's time for that to be done. It's time for us to be who we really are and embrace our real feelings.

This is the best book I have read so far this year!
