Product Description

Women are bombarded with ideas of perfection--and tips for how to achieve it--every day. From her work to her looks to her parenting, today's modern woman is expected to strive to be picture perfect in every way. As a result, calls for authenticity and imperfection are on the rise. Yet, deep down, most of us still want to achieve perfection. Why?

The desire to be perfect, says Kim Hyland, is actually a God-given urge. After all, we were made for Eden. But there is a difference between perfection and perfectionism, which is our attempt to achieve perfection on our own, by our own strength, and for our own purposes--the original temptation in the Garden. In this freeing book, Hyland offers women a stirring manifesto for acknowledging their limitations and embracing the perfection of God through his grace. This is a book for every woman who gives 110% and yet feels shame when one little thing goes wrong.

    A Journey Toward Grace For Self-Declared Failures

    So many women struggle with the strong desire to be the perfect something - the perfect woman, the perfect wife, the perfect mom - while losing sight of the fact that we are all perfectly as God would have us be at any given moment. The trials and hardships and seeming setbacks that we go through are all a means to an end, a way that God can work in our lives to teach us, show us, and mold us more into what He calls us to be.

    In An Imperfect Woman: Letting Go Of The Need To Have It All Together, Kim Hyland shares her personal testimony of learning to move past her personal need for perfection and into God's loving arms of grace. Revealing deeply personal yet very relatable tales of shortcomings and pitfalls from her own life story, Kim walks us through a journey of learning to let go of perfectionism, pride, and anxiety in order to embrace grace, humility, and peace.

    Each chapter is composed of several short stories that beautifully flow together into a tapestry, slowly revealing that we are each a masterpiece in God's eyes. This makes it easy to take in just a few minutes at a time, easily fitting it into any schedule. Her light-hearted yet candid approach to dealing with serious topics is sure to strike a chord in even the most imperfect and self-declared "failures" among us - something I know all too well.

    While this book is mostly a memoir, each chapter ends with questions for reflection in order to help the reader apply Kim's experiences to her own life and her own journey to indulge in and share God's grace. I would recommend it to any woman who finds herself questioning her own value, her purpose in God's great plan, or her ability to adequately care for and be an example to those she loves. 5/5 stars.

    What an amazing book! The author gives women permission to not be perfect because maybe my despised imperfections had the potential to become something of beauty. I loved how the author wove stories from her own life with Biblical principles and Bible verses to create a book to encourage women. Kim, the author, writes from her heart, sharing her struggles Sometimes I forget and see only my and others failures and shortcomings. But when I remember we are created for eternity, I can see the potential and opportunity in conflicts.

    It felt so good to read this book wish it had been written sooner! I recommend it! I received a copy of this book from the publisher. I am freely writing a review - all thoughts and opinions are my own.

    "An Imperfect Woman" by Kim Hyland is just that book I needed to read. I have always suffered from perfectionism and am always comparing myself to others. Kim offered so many good words of advice on this subject and reminded me of things I already knew but forgot! Kim shows us how there is a difference between perfection and perfectionism. Perfectionism is our attempt to achieve perfection on our own strength. She shows us how to achieve perfection through God's grace. I love how she uses the Garden of Eden, and how it all started with Eve not being satisfied to be in the beautiful Garden of Eden. I never thought of it like that.

    I would definitely recommend this book to any woman struggling with perfectionism, which is probably most of us! This book really puts things in prospective and frees us of perfectionism, which is really paralyzing!

    I received this book from Baker Books for my honest opinion.

    Reading Kim's book is like pulling up a chair at you favorite coffee shop with your wisest best friend and a bible. She shares deeply personal stories of how her perfectionism (read pride) nearly destroyed her relationship with her family and others. She , also describes how she learned to trust Christ more and drop the burdens she was never expected to carry. As a christian psychiatrist, I find this book a new treasure to share with those struggling with similar challenges.

    When I heard the title of Kim Hyland's book I knew the content would resonate An Imperfect Woman - Letting Go of the Need to Have it All Together. Yes, I have definitely suffered from the idea that if I could just be a better wife, mom, friend, volunteer, all would turn out perfectly, just as I'd imagined! My marriage, my children, my friendships - all perfect! I'd feel a sense of worthiness and accomplishment. I'd escape a dreadful ongoing sense of "never good enough." If I just tried harder, did more, showed up, said yes over and over again, I'd be of great value to others and to God. I'd feel totally and completely accepted and loved. As Kim puts it, "I came to equate pleasing with love." But the truth is, I will never be enough, I will never be enough, because "Nothing on earth will fill my heart's cry for Eden." Kim's book starts with a powerful relatable Imperfect Woman's Manifesto, supported by exacting Scriptures, fleshed out through personal stories, and applied with questions that call me to consider where I honestly am on this journey of hope and freedom in Christ alone. A smart, insightful, challenging read! I am a Mentor Mom with our local MOPs group and can't wait to share this book and its truths with these younger moms. It's a message they need to hear NOW!! An Imperfect Woman: Letting Go of the Need to Have It All Together

    *I did receive this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, and this is my honest review.
