In our selfie-saturated world, it's easy to slip into a me-centered life. Miller helps you break free of the perils of ego gratification and live for a larger purpose! Sharing her own experiences, she identifies the hidden source of our insecurity; exposes seven areas of self-sabotage; suggests four practical steps for focusing on God; and more. 208 pages, softcover from Baker.
We live in a culture that's all about self, becoming the best "me" I can be instead of becoming like Jesus. This me-centered message affects every area of our lives--our friendships, our marriages, even our faith--and it breaks each one in different ways. The self-focused life robs our joy, shrinks our souls, and is the reason we never quite break free of insecurity.
In this book, Sharon Hodde Miller invites us into a bigger, Jesus-centered vision--one that restores our freedom and inspires us to live for more. She helps readers
- identify the secret source of insecurity
- understand how self-focus sabotages seven areas of our lives
- learn four practical steps for focusing on God and others
- experience freedom from the burden of self-focus
Anyone yearning for a purpose bigger than "project me" will cherish this paradigm-shifting message of true fulfillment.
