Book Review

Publisher's Note:

Does this insecurity make me look FAT? Or does this confidence make me look magnificent? Why do clothing stores hang fun-house mirrors in their dressing rooms? The laundry doesn't cry when it's not folded, so why should I? Can I be confident even if an elevator calls me fat? Michelle Wilsons humorous yet poignant insights help women examine the limitations we place on ourselves out of insecurity and self-doubt. We have faith in God, but do we how that HE has faith in us? When we see ourselves with Gods eternal perspective, we can feel confident and whole--even in our imperfection. Just think what we might accomplish if we truly believe that we are more important than we know, stronger than we realize, and extraordinary in every way.…

Overall Book Review:

Michelle Wilson tackles the inadequacies many women feel in her new book Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat? This book specifically targets the LDS audience, but those who believe in deity will find it has validity as well. Men might want to read this, if they are seeking insight into the female psyche. 

The author points out many of the ways in which women compare themselves to others and then provides insights on how one might overcome or learn to reduce these feelings. There are some interesting stories used to support the perspective of the author.  The book itself is filled with scriptures and quotes from respected individuals. Not a bad read, especially if the reader is feeling inadequate and wants a boost.
