Women everywhere feel pressured to have perfect Christian lives, perfect family lives, and to look perfect in their jeans. Instead of feeling good about themselves, most of them just feel like tired supergirls, living in the gap between who they are and who they long to be.

Susanna Foth Aughtmon honestly confesses her battles with pride, worry, fatigue, beauty, jealousy, and chocolate. In every chapter she faces a nemesis—like Worry Man or Mrs. Prideful—who implies that she is not living up to her potential. She meets each enemy with the secret weapon of God's Truth. Readers will identify with her humorous examples from daily life and will gain insight from this tired supergirl on her journey of grace.
