Publisher's Description

Are your innermost thoughts robbing you of health and happiness? Jennifer Crow knows what that’s like. She always tried to do everything right—so she was shocked when her seemingly perfect life began to fall apart. Diagnosed with a dozen chronic health issues, she entered a deep depression and spiritual crisis. And as everything unraveled, Jennifer began to see how the perfect lies she’d told herself—lies like “I must prove myself because my worth depends on what I do” and “I must gain the acceptance of others because their opinion matters most”—were literally crippling her body, mind, and soul.

In Perfect Lies, Jennifer reveals nine key lies that held her back, walks us through her journey of miraculous recovery, and shares practical techniques for overcoming these same lies in our own lives and finding true freedom instead.

    Perfect Lies: Overcoming Nine Hidden Beliefs That Stand between You and a Healthy, Joy-Filled Life is a book written by Jennifer Crow. To the outside world, Jennifer seemed to have a perfect life but she began having health problems and became depressed. Jennifer realized that she had been accepting the devil's perfect lies and it was affecting her mind and body. Some of the lies she believed: I am unlovable, I am worthless, and I am unacceptable. She eventually found a (non-Christian) counselor that helped her to combine meditative prayer with the truths she knew about God. As Jennifer got her health back, she wanted to share the practical techniques she learned with others so they could lead a healthy and joy-filled life. Each chapter of the book identified each lie, then took the reader through something called a picture prayer exercise. The end of each chapter also provided statements and scriptures to ponder. I'm not sure how effective the picture prayer exercises are, but I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to try a different technique to stop feeling unworthy and start feeling joy in their life. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    This book is not for the faint-of-heart. In fact, it takes courage to read this book and place ourselves in Jennifer's place. For, her story touches the lives and lies of every reader. We all have lies we live behind, in order to survive. But, is this the life that Christ wants us to live?

    Jennifer takes us through 9 lies that chip away at our family relationships, physical health, mental wellness, and our relationship with the Lord. She teaches you about the lie and the ways in which it manifests itself. Here are a few of the lies that she lists and tackles in her book:

    1. Perfect Lie Number One: I Am Unlovable

    2. Perfect Lie Number Three: I Am Unacceptable

    3. Perfect Le Number Six: I Am Not Angry

    4. Perfect Lie Number Nine: I Am Deprived

    These are just a few of the life lies Jennifer touches upon. This book helps you to figure out why you are living a particular lie and the ammunition to fight back. This book is a "must-read" for everyone and especially, Christians.

    This book is about Jennifer, a pastor's wife, who had many struggles, both physical and mental, and her road to healing. Everything looked perfect on the outside but inside she was going through so much inner turmoil. There are nine lies that Jennifer believes people struggle with: I am unlovable, I am worthless, I am unacceptable, I am unable, I am a target, I am not angry, I am bad, I am in danger and I am deprived. In each chapter Jennifer mentions emotions that are associated with each lie. For example, if you believe the lie that you are worthless then you may also be experiencing sadness, depression and inferiority.

    Jennifer believes that the Lord healed her through what is called Christian Meditative Prayer. She addressed the lies that she believed through scripture, prayer and meditation. She devotes a chapter at the end of the book to explain what Christian Meditative Prayer is and how to use it. She understands that many people shy away from meditation because often it is associated with New Age. However, she mentions that we are to meditate on the Word of God.

    This book spoke to me and has helped me during my own journey to healing. It was an answer to my prayers and I would like to thank Jennifer for sharing her story. I do not agree with everything that is said in this book but I found a lot of the information helpful. I would recommend this book because it helped me. However, I realize that there are many people that may not be able to receive from this book. Regarding meditative prayer, you will have to decide if it is right for you. I believe we are to meditate on the Word of God and the Lord always needs to be our focus.

    *I received a complimentary copy of the book for review purposes from Tyndale House.

    I recently read, and put into practice, the book Perfect Lies by Jennifer Crow.

    I was surprised by this book. Pleasantly surprised.

    Jennifer Crow is a pastor's wife whose attempts to portray a life of perfection eventually caught up with her and began eating away at her physical health. I read with enormous interest her battles with a variety of emotional and physical illnesses that prevented her from serving her family and her church. Relying on medication, Jennifer Crow was certain of God's promise that He planned for her a a promising future of abundance, but couldn't reconcile that Biblical promise with her reality.

    Eventually, Jennifer realized that she needed to steep herself in deep prayer. Meditating on scriptures, and countering her mind's lies with scriptural truth, Jennifer quickly received miraculous healing.

    What is different about this book is that Jennifer not only shares her own story of unexpected healing and faith, but she is transparent about the lies she allowed herself to believe. Lies come from the pit of hell, yet we often believe them, running them though our heads over and over again until our whole being is imbued with falsehood. How many of us are consumed with worry, feeling desperate for the world's approval, and subsequently ridden with anxiety? And how many of our health struggles are a result of this?

    In an coherent and cohesive fashion, Jennifer guides the reader through her strategy of meditating on scripture, saturating the mind and spirit with God's truth, straight from the Bible. Some Christians may be concerned about the notion of meditation, but rest assured, Jennifer's meditation style requires us to focus on the wisdom of no other but God, actually dissolving the negative effects of false-thinking by creating new, healthy ways of thinking founded solidly on rock.

    I was pleased that Jennifer provides numerous relevant verses for us to begin our scriptural meditation, resting in God's love and bathing the mind with his words of health and healing.

    It was brave and generous of Jennifer Crow to invite us into her pain, and to share with us her pathway to healing through Jesus Christ. Of all the books I have been provided to review, this one has had the greatest impact on my practice of faith.

    Tyndale provided this book to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

    I was intrigued by the title, Perfect Lies, which fits the contents of the book nicely. There are a lot of truths in this book and it's amazing that the author was healed from chronic fatigue, depression and many other health issues, by getting rid of her negative thoughts and spending more time in prayer. She describes in vivid detail how she went about doing that and encourages others to take the same path of healing. It is her story and it's wonderful that she's sharing it with others as there may be some people that she'll be able to help. However, I disagree that so many in this world suffer from some of the same nine lies that plagued her: ‘I am unlovable. I am worthless. I am unacceptable. I am unable. I am a target. I am not angry. I am bad. I am in danger. I am deprived.' In the beginning of the book she states: "I fell victim to a lie that has plagued the entire human race: I am unlovable." This book was not what I expected and it left me somewhat disappointed.

    In exchange for an honest review, Tyndale provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
