Breaking Up with Perfect
By

Rating
Every woman has felt the pressure to be perfect. Whether you're a "good girl" who constantly strives to put on a perfect front or the "never good enough girl" who finally decides that if she can't be perfect, she might as well be good at being bad, the impossible quest for perfection inevitably results in stress that impacts everything you do. Because what you believe determines how you think and feel, Carroll identifies common misunderstandings about others, ourselves, and God and counters these misconceptions with affirming biblical truths that redefine the source of your worth and help you gain confidence and new ways to think about yourself. In doing so, she helps you rework your thought patterns so that misconceptions like "God expects me to live up to His standards perfectly" can be replaced with truths like "God understands our imperfections and loves us unconditionally." In this relatable book, Amy shares biblical teachings, personal anecdotes, and transformation exercises that are easy to apply to your daily life. Breaking Up with Perfect will give you the tools you need to break the perpetual cycle of stress that chasing perfection induces, so you can live a life filled with happiness, success, and spiritual fulfilment.

Reviews

"Before I read Breaking Up with Perfect I didn't think I struggled with perfectionism. But I was convicted-in a good way--on every page. I do blame others when they buck my perfect plan. I do try to impress people and fit in at all costs. Not only was I convicted by Amy's words, I was encouraged with God's truth and equipped to leave this facade behind once and for all. Thank you, Amy, for freeing us from lies of perfectionism and setting us on the crooked, rambling path that is real life." -- Amy Lively * Speaker and author of How to Love Your Neighbors without Being Weird * "If you've ever secretly considered a trial separation from perfect, this is your chance. Breaking Up with Perfect is the essential remedy for women who wrestle with any degree of perfectionism and long for authentic freedom. Amy Carroll shares poignant stories and insightful truths that will help women slam the door on perfect and never look back." -- Julie K. Gillies * Author of Prayers for a Woman's Soul * "As a "good girl" all my life, I've had a serious love affair with Perfect. It's hurt my family, compromised my health, and been a major barrier in my relationship with God. Amy sets "good girls" like me free by exposing the lies we believe, the pride that isolates us, and the misguided priorities that often drive us. She also guides the girls who wear a mask of perfection because they think they're never "good enough," and she points us all to a Savior who fills our longing to be loved--perfectly." -- Melinda Means * Speaker and Co-author of Mothering from Scratch * "What a wonderfully relevant and truth-filled book! Amy does an excellent job of weaving authentic personal stories with great Bible content, as well as thought-provoking, reflective questions. Whether you view yourself as a perfect "good girl" or an insecure "never good enough" girl, this book is for you. Highly recommend!" -- Cindy Bultema * Speaker and Author of Red Hot Faith * "Whether you play the "good girl" who tries so hard to please God and impress others, or you fear that no matter what you do, you'll never be good enough--you'll be encouraged by this insightful book. Amy's presence on the pages provides a warm and honest voice that will enable you to stop performing and start forging an authentic and intimate walk with Christ." -- Karen Ehman * Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker, New York Times Bestselling author of Keep It Shut & LET. IT. GO. * "With wit, warmth, and wisdom, Amy Carroll shows us how to break up with perfection so we can live our lives rather than manage them. What a gift!" -- Suzanne Eller * Intl. speaker and author of The Mended Heart and The Unburdened Heart * "If you're still holding on to your relationship with "Perfect," Amy helps you face the truth about Perfect's lyin', cheatin', soul-stealin' ways. And as she walks alongside you, Amy leads you back to the One and only perfect Love of your life." -- Cheri Gregory * co-author of The Cure for the "Perfect" Life * "Perfection is exhausting at best, defeating at worst. In Breaking Up with Perfect, Amy is the trusted friend who comes to help us knock down our walls of fear to rebuild a more doable, sustainable, God-honoring life." -- Lysa TerKeurst * New York Times bestselling author of The Best Yes and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries *
