Why Her?






When I saw this book, I was super hesitant to request to review it because it seemed like yet another "me too" book. And I wanted something deeper. But then I saw that Proverbs 31 was (and still is) doing a bible study through it, I decided to go ahead and review it.

So it is about Nicki's experiences yet she takes us through the biblical experiences of Rachel and Leah, Jacob's wives, the mothers of Israel. These women were the epitome of comparison and disappointment and coveting what the other had. Something that is extremely prevalent in today's culture of Instagram and Pinterest where you get a snapshot of someone's life and almost immediately can fall prey to comparing your life to theirs. 

Nicki walks us through 6 lies and the responding truths as we combat the lies of the comparison game. And that is what makes this book NOT another "me too" book. Nicki goes beyond saying here I struggle, she says Yes I struggle but here's how I'm working on it so you can too. And that is what makes this book awesome. 




As you can see each Truth is roughly about 2 chapters long.

And if you have the opportunity to get the bible study companion and watch the videos offered through Proverbs 31, DO IT. (as of this posting, they are still available).
