Fear of rejection and insecurity causes many women to don masks to look like the "good" mom, wife, friend, or Christian. Dr. Juli Slattery compares the profound difference between a culturally-driven approach to self, and a biblical perspective on what we're worth, encouraging women to live life abundantly-as God intended! Includes notes for small group or personal study.

Many Christian women today are wearing masks. From an early age, we are taught that to be valuable we need to do more, to be more. To feel worthy, we learn to hide behind the masks of our accomplishments, physical appearance, intelligence, education, relationshipseven our work in the church. But those masks separate us from God, from other people, and from our true selves. Thankfully, there is hope. We can remove our masks and trust Christ to see us as we really are . . . but it takes humility. To examine our hearts, motives, and past experiences requires honesty and confession. But beyond the masquerade, Christ can heal and transform our lives, freeing us from bondage.
