Product Description

God never meant for us to focus on whether we are "enough," whether we measure up. He made us--every piece of us--to be just as he is. Jerusha Clark discovered this while exploring Jesus's seven powerful "I am" statements recorded in the Gospel of John. She invites women to join her in embracing the life and truth of these words, relishing the freedom of an identity fixed on Christ alone while leaving behind fear, bitterness, busyness, and toxic thoughts that steal our joy and limit our power.

Publisher's Description

Throughout Scripture, God reveals himself as the great I Am. He does not define himself with reference to any thing, person, or trait. He is, and that is enough. Women find themselves in a far different situation. When we introduce ourselves, we typically describe ourselves in terms of our relationships (the wife, mother, daughter, sister, or friend of someone else) or in terms of our accomplishments (our title, position, education, or accolades). When our identity is wrapped up in these external things, we inevitably (and exhaustingly!) strive to prove ourselves worthy of love, attention, or affirmation.

God never meant for us to focus on whether we are "enough," whether we measure up. He made us--every piece of us--to be just as he is.

Jerusha Clark discovered this while exploring Jesus's seven powerful "I am" statements recorded in the Gospel of John. She invites women to join her in embracing the life and truth of these words, relishing the freedom of an identity fixed on Christ alone while leaving behind fear, bitterness, busyness, and toxic thoughts that steal our joy and limit our power.

    Every Piece of Me was one of the most informative books I have read in a long time. Jerusha Clark does an amazing job of showing different ways to over come various problems in day to day life. The book wasn't a quick read but it was interesting. I loved the stories and examples that were sprinkled in the book along with all the biblical references. I look forward to using some of her ideas of how to put God back in the center of my life. Many thanks to Baker Books for a book in exchanged for a honest review.

    Every Piece Of Me: Shattering Toxic Beliefs And Discovering The Real You by Jerusha Clark is written for women who find themselves so caught up in their identity within society that they forget their identity within Christ. Yes, you are a mother or a daughter or a sister or a wife - but who are you under that mask that the rest of the world sees? Who are you behind closed doors, when it's just you and God left in the room?

    Jerusha helps women come to terms with their feelings of not living up to society's expectations, so that they can enjoy the freedom of living under God's vision for their lives. Filled with personal anecdotes, scriptural lessons, and scientific research, Every Piece Of Me will help you to learn to let go of your own expectations for your life so that you can embrace God's purpose for your presence.

    With lots of clear section breaks, questions for personal reflection or group discussion, and recommended reading at the end of every chapter - this book would serve well as an inspirational beginning for any woman starting on the journey to finding (or rediscovering) who she is in Christ. For those needing a deeper investigation, this book may leave you lacking. But for new Christians or those who feel as though they have strayed and would like to find their way back to Christ's warm embrace; It's perfect. 4/5 stars.

    "Every Piece of Me" studied several of Jesus's "I Am" statements and linked them to various issues with which women often struggle. The author talked about each "I am" statement, explained the context of what was going on when Jesus said it, then talked about a related issue that women deal with. She also suggested some things you can do to shift your outlook into alignment with how God views you.

    For example, she talked about the "I am the bread of life" statement. Talk about eating led to talk about how women view their bodies and appearance. She suggested things like noticing when you think or say self-judgmental words and to take a "fast" on saying them. In the section on the Good Shepherd, she talked about anxiety and worry. When feeling anxious, she suggested thinking of things that you're grateful for since you can't think anxious thoughts at the same time as grateful thoughts.

    The book was easy to read and understand. She made good points and offered useful suggestions on how to shift your focus over time. Overall, I'd recommend this book, especially if you feel like your identity is wrapped up in what you do or how you look and that you'll never measure up.

    I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

    Clark explores the seven "I am" statements of Jesus with the aim of showing that He is the answer to all we need and it is in Him alone we find our true identity. Questions for personal reflection are given at the end of each chapter as are a couple of books for additional reading.

    Clark is refreshingly honest about her struggle with depression and an eating disorder. She faced postpartum depression twice, was diagnosed Bipolar II, and suffered a subsequent breakdown. This is an encouraging section for women who struggle with issues, realizing that Christians don't always get victory over every issue. Clark encourages readers to allow their weaknesses to be used for God's glory.

    Clark has good teaching on several issues particular to women. She writes about shame and feeling excluded. She has a good section on hearing from God. I found her section on spiritual dissonance particularly interesting. We can know much about God yet not experience the truths nor live in them.

    She writes like a teacher might teach. I felt like I was in a lecture hall while reading the book. Clark teaches truth to readers rather than inviting us along on her transformation journey. Because of that writing style, I had difficulty connecting with her teaching.

    There was one aspect of the book I found disconcerting. Before investigating the "I am" statements, Clark reminds readers that it is important to explore the context of Scripture and to whom the words were spoken. (Loc 567/3723) I found it rather odd that Clark began her book with an extensive teaching on Isaiah 43. She applied to women today what God clearly said to the Israelites through Isaiah centuries ago. She did not explain the context of the passage nor why she applied those descriptions to people other then to whom they were originally directed.

    This is a book specifically for women. There are topics discussed, such as sexual issues, that make this book inappropriate for men.

    I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
