Publisher's 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.

    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.

    As I was reading this book, An Imperfect Woman, I realized that I was striving in my own power and strength to become what I thought I needed to be, rather than allowing God to make me into what He wanted me to be. I appreciated how Kim explains that our longings for perfection are because we were made for Eden. "A work of art. A scent. A sunset. They all evoke the perfection and intimacy that we are homesick for a glimpse and reminder of our Creator, a promise of our reunion." This gives me great hope that being drawn to the beautiful, true & perfection is tied into my desire to be with the Lord.

    The book is set up following An Imperfect Woman's Manifesto. These statements are carried throughout the book and tie it together seamlessly. At the end of the chapters are Questions for Reflection. I think these would lend themselves very well for a book study and also for personal reflection. I appreciated the number of quotes, scripture references and even original poetry that is woven in this book. Many parts of the book brought fresh conviction through the work of the Holy Spirit, tears, laughter & deep contemplation. I think any woman, at any stage in her walk with Christ, would glean many benefits from this book.

    The struggle with perfectionism is alive and well in the hearts of so many women these days and I am no exception. When I heard about Kim's book An Imperfect Woman I knew that it was something that I had to read. The first chapter had me in tears, reading another woman's story that so mirrored my own caused a wash of feelings. But this book is one filled with hope. Kim weaves her own personal stories with those of the Bible, reminding us that as long as the world has existed, humans have struggled with this "not enough" feeling. I loved this truth early on..."Eve didn't think she was better than God....she just believed the lie that she needed more than God. He wasn't enough." How often do we believe that lie, and oh the rabbit trails those lies take us down! Each chapter ends with some questions for reflection, some opportunities to look deeper into those struggles you may be facing and find freedom from them. An Imperfect Woman is a must-have for every woman that has struggled to do more, be more, present well, parent perfectly and appear to have it all together. It is a chance to take a deep breath and remind ourselves that we can let all of that go. Get this book today!!

    Breaking the shallowness of many a Christian women's book, Kim digs deep. One of the things I appreciate most about this book is the sound theological foundation on which a pertinent struggle is addressed. This read is meaningful, sweet, genuine, and captivating as you are weaved gently through Kim's personal experiences and the truth of God's Word and His powerful gospel. I'll be revisiting An Imperfect Woman often as the reminder is one we women need again and again! Thank you Kim!
