Product Description

Like the perfect pair of jeans, the perfect Christian life eludes us super girls. We long to live the perfect life - free of pride, jealousy, envy, bitterness, loneliness, selfishness, judgmentalism, and a host of other sins. The gap between where we want to be and where we are is huge. Reading All I Need Is Jesus and a Good Pair of Jeans is akin to eavesdropping on the author in a confessional booth as she shares her struggles and learns to resist with the secret weapon of God's truth. Straightforward and humorous, you're sure to get a few laughs along with a dose of reality. Includes study questions for each chapter. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

Women everywhere feel pressured to have perfect Christian lives, perfect family lives, and to look perfect in their jeans. Instead of feeling good about themselves, most of them just feel like tired supergirls, living in the gap between who they are and who they long to be.

Susanna Foth Aughtmon honestly confesses her battles with pride, worry, fatigue, beauty, jealousy, and chocolate. In every chapter she faces a nemesis--like Worry Man or Mrs. Prideful--who implies that she is not living up to her potential. She meets each enemy with the secret weapon of God's Truth. Readers will identify with her humorous examples from daily life and will gain insight from this tired supergirl on her journey of grace.

STRENGTH FOR WOMEN TO WIN LIFE'S EVERYDAY BATTLES
Christian Women Everywhere Will See Themselves - and Find Hope - in This Funny, Adventurous Book by Debut Author

Christian women often struggle with the tension between who we are and who we were designed - and yearn - to be. There's a lot of pressure for us to live out the perfect Christian life, but everyday struggles can be discouraging and make us feel like we're not living up to our God-given potential.

Author Susanna Foth Aughtmon, a pastor's wife and mother of three, knows that feeling all too well, which she explores in her debut book, All I Need is Jesus and a Good Pair of Jeans: The Tired Supergirl's Search for Grace.

She opens up about many of the struggles and difficulties that we as women of faith face on a day-to-day basis, most of which we never talk about. Through her candidness and down-to-earth humor, she reassures women that they are not alone in facing these hardships. But most of all, she shows women that there's hope. Aughtmon digs into Scripture and shows readers how they can face these burdens, grow closer to God through them and become more of the kind of woman that God has in mind for them.

All I Need is Jesus and a Good Pair of Jeans looks at almost two dozen of the struggles women deal with most, including:

  • Worrying too much
  • Being a people-pleaser
  • Becoming too busy for God
  • Feeling lonely or purposeless
  • Struggling with your body image
  • Not feeling disciplined enough
  • Getting angry or judging others
  • Not being very good at sharing your faith
  • Getting discouraged about your spiritual growth

    Readers will have a chance to find out how another woman handles - and overcomes - these areas of frustration that burden so many Christian women. Readers will identify with her humorous examples from daily life and will gain insight from this tired supergirl on her journey of grace.

    "It is almost as if Sue walks into a confessional booth and invites us as readers to go in with her," remarks pastor and author Mark Batterson. "She shares personal struggles that take tremendous courage to reveal. It was so refreshing and encouraging to know that I'm not alone."

    All I need is Jesus and a Good Pair of Jeans also includes more than 75 questions that complement each chapter, and makes for a great resource for small groups or Bible studies.

      Really liked this book. It's light, funny and very real. Am using it for a summer Bible study as a way to encourage other women and help them draw closer to the Lord. Thank you, Susanna!

      This is a great book because the author writes honestly and from her heart. She can relate to all of us who try to do it all and try to be Super Girls. Whether you are tired, jealous, angry, exhausted, undisciplined, prideful, feeling unlovable, and more, Susanna covers it in this well-written book about her own struggles and explains what the Bibles says on how to deal with them. Its a fairly quick read and a great pick-me-up when you are down.

      Susanna really speaks to the everyday struggles of women, especially mothers. She is funny, easy to comprehend, and makes you think - a winning combination. This book would make a great mother's day, baby shower, or birthday gift!
