Overview
If you've known broken relationships . . . If you've ever felt like you don't measure up . . . If you've suspected something inside you might be missing or flawed . . . This book is for you. Kim Gaines Eckert, psychologist and counselor, has spent years helping women with a variety of life issues, from self-esteem and body image to developing healthy relationships and healing from the past. At the heart of their struggle, she believes, is not the desire to be perfect, but the desire to be whole. And wholeness, she is convinced, ultimately comes only from God. In this book Kim invites you into her conversations with women. You'll discover you are not alone in your struggles, and you'll learn from her practical and proven guidance for growth and change. And because growth is always more powerful in community, each chapter includes questions for you to explore in a small group. Let Kim Gaines Eckert show how God can mend your brokenness and help you become a whole, healthy person--the woman he created you to be.

This is not a self-help manual with the obligatory seven steps for growth or spiritual renewal. This is a book about women's brokenness. Eckert, an assistant professor of psychology and counseling at Tennessee's Lee University, says that failed relationships, body issues, sexual wounds, low self-esteem and dormant anger conspire to keep women from the wholeness they desire. In the first half, Eckert draws on the work of Mary Pipher and Kathleen Fischer to highlight the damaging messages women internalize, and the "negative self-talk" that can cripple them. These chapters are well done, with Eckert bringing the message home through various "tools for the journey"—practical suggestions of things that women can do to enjoy greater authenticity and wholeness. The book's second half really sings as Eckert tackles specific issues like anger, depression, self-image and—in the book's most poignant chapters—beauty and women's sexuality. Drawing on her own stories and those of women she has counseled (and mixing in song lyrics from Dar Williams and Natalie Merchant), Eckert asserts that women are stronger than they think they are: emboldened by Christ, they can find spiritual healing and emotional wholeness.
