JohnnyLafayette, TNAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5When a Guy Reads a Woman's BookFebruary 13, 2018JohnnyLafayette, TNAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I know what you are thinking. Why is a guy reading a book intended for women? Good question! Im married to a woman. Im the father of one. I pastor a slew of them. That is why I was glad to read the newest book from author Kayla Aimee entitled In Bloom: Trading Restless Insecurity for Abiding Confidence published by B & H.
As my daughter, who is now 19 and is attending college, was growing up I often wondered about the battles that were going on in the heart of a young girl. As she struggled with insecurity and life, I often thought to myself that what she needs to do is be resilient and strong. I dont think that I quite understood the pain that she was facing.
In this book Kayla Aimee chronicles her own life and struggles. Through the art of excellent storytelling, she takes us on a journey into her own life, a journey that she admits leaves her vulnerable and exposed. Her greatest fear is that her dad might read the chapter on sex. Through her journey you see the struggles of a teen, a young single adult, a wife, and a young mother. You also see her applying Gods Word to her life. You learn about mercy, grace, friendship, and empathy. This book has allowed me to appreciate the journey of ladies all around me.
I think that the author is a great story teller who is able to bring you into her life. Once again Im not a lady, but I have seen one after another speak of how they related to her struggles. I believe that this book is going to be a blessing to the women who read it.
Since we are all better together, the author has given you discussion questions in the back of the book so that a group of ladies could journey through this book as a group. Im thankful to be a part of the team who helped launch this book.
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMFebruary 8, 2018FitzysmomQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0If you are a woman insecurity comes just as naturally as breathing. Even the most seemingly put together woman deals with insecurity. Just when you think you have become a grown up and left junior high and mean girls behind, there they are right next to you.
But did you know that you don't have to live like that? Kayla Aimee helps us take an honest look at the insecurities that plague us. She shares her own humbling but hilarious experiences and allows us to take a peek inside her journey to confidence. She shows you how to flip insecurity on its head and walk in confidence through a trust in the abiding grace of Christ.
I really enjoyed Kayla's first book, Anchored, and I enjoyed this one just as much. Kayla is willing to be vulnerable in order to help others reach a deeper relationship with Christ. I really think young women and mothers will benefit the most from this book but I'm a 50+ woman and I also found the book to be thought provoking. I appreciated the way that she encouraged us to look back at all the awkward and sometimes painful events that fed our insecurities. But instead of wallowing in it she reminds you to acknowledge the ways in which Christ brought you through it and encourages you to see what you learned from it.
This is a quick read that also allows you to interact with it through questions. I think it is a lovely book to read yourself but it would also make a perfect selection for a small group of women to read together.
I received an e-copy of this book to facilitate my review.
cheryl5 Stars Out Of 5A Must Read! Heartwarming and HonestFebruary 6, 2018cherylQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We all deal with insecurities and some times think we are the only ones dealing with it. In Bloom: TradGing Restless Insecurity....Kaylee did an awesome job drawing us into the book. Over and over I kept saying "that was me, too" many times, the author confronts real battles of feeling insecure with truth filled encouragement. We are bombarded with media and images that of those who appear to have it all together, what "real women" should look like and act like. Our faith is in Jesus, not those who feel the need to make others feel insecure. This was the first book by the author that I have read and was impressed with the raw and heartbreaking honesty.
A Must Read!!
I received an advance ebook copy, all reviews are my own opinion
harseneault5 Stars Out Of 5You are ENOUGH!February 6, 2018harseneaultQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This gem of a book tackles what could be considered an epidemic. We, especially women, have all had feelings of awkwardness, insecurity and shame. Aimee cracks the myth of not being enough wide open with her words. She shares sweet and silly anecdotes but also points to what the Bible teaches about us being created in the image of God. Every woman, both young and old, should read this book. It was freeing to be reminded Im exactly who I was created to be.
Liz5 Stars Out Of 5Trading insecurity for confidence, yes please!February 6, 2018LizQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In Bloom is not just the next book you should read (although it totally is!), it is the book I wish I had read as a young woman, the book I needed right now, and the book I will be reading with my daughter. Kayla Aimee has a signature storytelling style that is a joy to read and persistently takes you to deeper places as a reader. She is charming and witty, but also real and vulnerable. This book will not only have you constantly echoing "me too", but it also provides hope and real answers to issues like comparison, sexual purity, and the little voice in our head that tells us we're not enough.
