Editorial Reviews

This was such an easy and nice book. I totally loved it! I must admit I recognized myself on many occasions. My obsession to look good, to satisfy God knows what criteria..Well, this book did open my eyes a bit. I won't go that far in saying it will tell you something you don't already know , but the way the author puts it - it becomes too clear!

    I felt as though Jocelyn was reading from my own journal. She was writing from the position of truly knowing and understanding the barriers that women feel about their bodies. More importantly she wrote with the Biblical truths that we tend to think don't apply to us, it's for that other woman. We are not perfect, and this book tells us that none of us are. It strongly encourages us that you don't have to be perfect to be loved by God.

    I fall into the category of the men-o-pausal woman so I could certainly relate to so much of the "what we have to look forward to" portion of the book. And after reading it I still am looking forward to it. I had to laugh, because I could relate to so much of it.

    We live in a world that is always full of comparisons, and this book addresses the things that most women battle.

    I highly recommend this for every woman that has ever felt "less than perfect!"

    Do These Jeans Make Me Look Fat? An interesting title for an interesting book. Author, Jocelyn Hamsher, is trying to get you away from depending on others opinions to find peace about your bodies and instead look to your Creator.

    Using examples from her life and stories from friends she walks us through the steps to stop comparing ourselves to what the world says is a worthy woman to what the Bible says is a worthy woman. Knowing who you are in Christ and what He expects of us while we live in these earthly bodies will lead you in the right direction. Waking up and looking up instead of in the mirror can really change your outlook for the day.

    Not only does this book teach you about not comparing yourself to others but it also goes to great lengths to teach you how your body changes over the years. Citing numerous statistics and surveys you will learn much about how the woman's body will change. You will better understand that getting older is not something you will do alone but is something you will have to accept! I liked the funny stories shared but also got a little discouraged by all the negative things that happen to your body. Of all the things shared there were really no solutions given except to just know the changes were coming and get mentally prepared for them.

    Overall I thought the book was very educational as well as thoughtfully written. Even with taking my spirits down a bit with all the body aging information I still gave this book a 5/5 stars. I did this because the information shared is very informative and worth at least one read!

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
