Becoming Myself: Embracing God's Dream of You is a hope-filled book for anyone who wonders if her life will ever change - if she will ever change. In author Stasi Eldredge’s most intimate book yet, she shares her own struggles with self-worth, weight and her past as she shows women how God is faithfully unveiling who we truly are.

Eldredge urges you to lay down your past thoughts about yourself and receive God’s incredible dreams for you instead. We cannot heal ourselves. We cannot become ourselves by ourselves - but we are not alone. The King of love wants to help us reach our potential. God desires to restore us - the real us. As he heals our inner life, he calls us to rise to the occasion of our lives. The most important journey any woman can take is the journey into becoming her true self through the love of God.

Discover your truest self - the woman God created you to be - through Becoming Myself.

Becoming Myself--Embracing Who God Made You by Disciplemom Laura on 7/21/13
Rating

Drawing from her own weight loss battles, author Stasi Eldredge describes the struggle for lasting change in her new book, "Becoming Myself: Embracing God's Dream of You."
Eldredge reminds readers that transformation is a process God uses to "heal our inner world so He can transform our outer world." She also says God is "in the business of setting us free, making each of us into the woman He always wanted us to be. The woman we always wanted to be."
As she leads readers through a variety of issues like looking at your past through the eyes of mercy, our mothers' effects on us, and friendships, Eldredge seeks to help readers let go of shame and self-discipline since neither are agents of change. She says, "God isn't waiting for me to get my act together in order to become worthy of his affection."
She goes on to say, "Though our past has shaped us, we are not our past. Though our failures and sin have had an effect on who we are, we are not defined by our failures or sin."
According to Eldredge, struggles, fear of intimacy, self-hatred, and the need to control our world, make us desperate for God, and "that is not a bad thing." She encourages readers to embrace who they are, to awaken to the desires and dreams God placed in them. "Let God begin to write your story. Invite him to show you your past through his eyes," she says.
Overall, this was a good book, reminding readers to live out their new identity in Christ, allowing God to transform them from the inside out. The author has clearly walked the path of which she speaks, and she genuinely hopes to help her readers through similar struggles.
I appreciate Eldredge's gentle reminders that I will never be successful in trying to change myself--that it is God who does the transforming, beginning on the inside, changing my attitudes.
At the same time, the book ended abruptly for me, leaving me wondering, "Okay, now what?" While I understand small group resources are forthcoming, I was disappointed in the lack of reflection or discussion questions to guide me through the process of applying some of the principles in the book. So, I look forward to seeing the accompanying resources when they are released.
