    Author and spiritual speaker Janet Davis has an uplifting style of writing. Her third book, "My Own Worst Enemy how to stop holding yourself back" is written for women. It is filled with stories about real people and how they have unconsciously hold themselves back from reaching their full potential. The author reveals a lot of the mistakes or choices she has made in her life and how learning from them have helped her to become stronger. The author added analogies to give the reader a better understanding of just how destructive this behaviour can be and how to see it in their own lives.

    The analogies often appear in the book at rather odd places. This can confuse the reader but if they continue reading, the message will evident within a few pages.

    Each chapter has a study guide complete with questions for the reader to self-evaluate themselves.

    The forward to this book is written by Anita Lustrea, host of Moody Radio's Midday Connection.

    This is one of those books that will prompt the reader to have thoughts and ideas while reading it. I suggest the reader have a journal or tablet of paper to write those notes on so they are not forgotten.

    I give this book a FOUR START rating and recommend it to all Spiritual women who are searching to become better women. This book will give female readers a lot to think about. I only give it a four star rating because of the lack of preparation given to the reader before the analogies are given.

    My Own Worst Enemy by Janet Davis is a book about breaking free from your own self doubts about your own talents and skills. Ms Davis discusses how to break free of the destructive cycle of the self doubting voices that tell yourself that you're not good enough or that you will look like you think you are bragging about yourself. Janet Davis' book of life lessons from the Bible of women paired alongside modern women and their stories. She calls all women to "Let your Little Light Shine and not Hide it under a Bushel."

    I liked how Ms. Davis told of the strength of the women who though culture held them down used their intellect and strength to further God's work. I love reading of the few female heros in the Bible and Ms. Davis fills this book with them coupled with modern problems that women of today face. She shows women that they have the intelligence and strength to solve their problems with the plan that God has set forth for them if they only will not overthink and sabatage their own plans.

    This is a good book and an easy and quick read for the busy woman as well as containing a plan for which one can turn this into a woman's study group lesson also. I was provided this book for this unbiased review.
