Product Description

There are so many moments in life when we choose to silence our intuition, abandon our own voice, and play small because we wonder, deep down: "Do I know who I really am? Is who I really am enough?" It's courageous work to learn to live from our essential identity--loved, worthy, whole. But what if God is calling us to shamelessly recover the woman he created us to be? What if God is urging us to be--for the first time in our lives--brazen? The word brazen means without shame. Leeana Tankersley wants women to be just that--to unapologetically move from shame- and fear-based living toward lives that are based on love and belonging. With moving personal stories and spot-on observations of the longings we all experience--to know we are loved, to feel comfortable in our own skin, to be heard--Tankersley calls women to honor that voice deep down inside of them rather than bowing to outside influences that push them to become someone they're not. Gritty and overflowing with grace, Brazen will set women free to be truly themselves in a world bent on molding them in its image.

    I recently had the opportunity to read Brazen by Leeana Tankersley. While there were some interesting thoughts in this book, and it is a good thing to read if you are feeling particularly insecure, I personally found some of the theology to be a little iffy. When it came down to it, as an evangelical believer, some of the things the author mentioned came across as off to me. Because of this, I did not feel inclined to finish the book. I wouldn't say this was a bad book, but be careful to take everything with a grain of salt. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    Brazen is an inspiring read for me. It really made me think and gave me the advice I need to find myself. Leanna Tankersley has a way to make sense by using humor. I laughed so many times and just had to keep on reading. I highly recommend it!

    5 plus stars.

    Brazen means 'without shame'. And that is the entire point of this book. To have a people unashamed of who they are, whose they are, and knowing that they are enough. At the end of every chapter is a little something to get you meditating and something to add to your 'brazen board': a board that reminds you of who you are and to keep on being you.

    I think that this is a book that needs to be read with an open, but cautious mind. She writes to point out that we are enough. And true, God choses us as we are, but I don't think that means we can't continue to find areas to work on and keep improving. I believe that we should always try to be better than 'enough'.

    I would recommend it to you though! I hope you enjoy it. I would say this is for older teens to adults, and definitely for women, not men.

    Anyways, happy reading!

    Ah, friends. This book was a gift from the first pages. I dont know how she did it, but Leeana Tankersley knows what Im thinking. She writes about what a Brazen Life looks like, a life that is free of shame. I honestly was initially a little turned off to the title of this book and its hot pink cover. Brazen is associated with hussies in my mind, but it didnt take long for Leeana to redeem that definition for me. I want this shame-free, beautiful life she writes about, that she herself is fighting for.

    The part of me that is always striving, always trying, always working to earn beauty and rest and love NEEDED these words of truth and grace. In a season that feels like so much of not-yet, her words point me straight to Jesus.

    As I have put the striving Leeana on the couch, God has reminded me over and over again that as I bring him my heavy, he will return to me his light. The burden will lift incrementally as I continue coming home. Effort will be met with ease. For me, this has meant that all my energy isn't going toward dragging around shame and fear. Instead my energy is reserved for much more productive matters. Like eating artichokes and giggling with friend.

    The minute life starts to feel heavy and breathless again, I stop and ask God, "What do you want to say to me today?" We talk for a bit--usually about unhooking from whatever lie I am buying hook, line and sinker that day--and my energy level returns. And then, a few days pass, and I have to begin again because I forget. (Brazen, 49)

    I loved this book. A solid A for me.

    Tankersley has such a poetic way of writing. The reader can completely tell who she is as a person and an artist through the way she writes. She is artistic, deep and unashamed -- brazen. I love that we get such a clear example of 'brazen', of what we could also do if we choose freedom and braziness.

    Unfortunately, some of the author's poetic writing made it hard for me to follow along. I couldn't always understand what I was supposed to be taking away from each chapter.

    Overall, I can't say that I completely connected with this book as much as I would have hoped. I struggled to relate to Tankersley's writing and poetic soul. However, I do hope that one day I can be in a better place and perhaps give this one another read. I did grab two major takeaways that I hope to continue exploring in my journal, and for that alone I am thankful. If you are a reader who loves the profound in the simple everyday, poetic, creative souls and are looking to find your strong inner woman, "Brazen" may be for you. 4 stars.
