I have struggled with lots of insecurity in my life. So, this book seemed like it would be helpful. And, it has been. The "Replacing the Lies with the Truth Quick Reference Guide" is a great resource to find Scripture truths to help defeat the lies. Even though this book is written for women, the content could be applied to anyone. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

 Sharon Jaynes takes us on a journey in this book starting with the ugly lies that come from none other than the father of lies himself. Lies that women so often believe about themselves. Worthless. Unloved. Ugly. Stupid. Unacceptable. Unforgivable. Dirty. Unhappy. Failure.  Not Good Enough!!!!!  As you read through each chapter Sharon tells about the lies that Satan tells us, and teaches us through Scripture and biblical wisdom how to recognize the enemy and reject his lies by replacing them with God's beautiful truth's!  By the end of the book, Sharon will have you convinced of the truth. The truth is we are all God's beloved daughters, and we believe we are who He says we are. Deeply loved. Completely forgiven. Fully pleasing. Priceless treasure. New creation. Accepted. Chosen. Holy. Valuable. Redeemed. Cleansed. Free. We are Enough!!!!!  I love the Quick Reference Guide at the end of the book titled; Replacing the Lies with the Truth! This section will be great to remind ourselves of God's beautiful truth's when the enemy tries to creep in with his lies. Sharon gives examples of the lies and how to reject each lie with God's truth and the Scripture to back it up. I will not be putting this book in the closet, I plan to keep it close by for reference, and to read again.  This book can be read alone, but I would highly recommend doing it as a Bible Study with a group of women. At the very end of the book Sharon has included and amazing Bible Study Guide to use as you go along in your study.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who has struggled with the lies of the enemy, but also know that everyone who reads this book will be touched and changed in a great way.  I was given a copy of this book for my participation in the "Enough" launch team. This is my honest review.

Enough is a book for all women to read. It is so easy to listen to the lies the Enemy gives to us every day. "You're not enough ______." (fill in the blank) Sharon Jaynes delves deep into the lies of the Enemy, and if we do not replace those lies with the truth, how the Enemy can keep us in a state of negativity, shame, and worthlessness. But, we are not those things. Get a copy of Enough: Silencing the Lies That Steal Your Confidence and allow God's word and Sharon's insight to help you. Get a copy for a friend as well.

Enough: Silencing the Lies that Steal Your Confidence by Sharon Jaynes is a book that has opened my eyes to the lies that Satan tells us in order to pull us from the One who loves us. This book equips women with truth to defeat the lies that we have believed regarding our worth and value. The first section of the book addresses the battle for our thought life. Sharon shows us Satan’s play book and equips us with ways to recognize and defeat the lies. The second portion of the book addresses more specific lies that women tell themselves. For example, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m worthless”, “I’m so ugly”, and many other areas. In the book she shows the reader how to replace those lies with God’s truth. How to rearrange our thinking so that we are able to believe God’s truth and not the lies that have been on repeat. This is a book that I will continue to reference. It has changed my thinking and made me more aware of the spiritual warfare that we are all under. After reading this book I feel more equipped to take on this battle. Disclaimer: I was given an advanced copy for my honest review.

I was invited to join the launch team of Enough. This book will assist you in looking at yourself and maybe you’ll resist wanting to look at yourself honestly. As you turn the pages, you’ll find Sharon’s stories relatable and the scriptures verifying your identity in Christ. You’ll meet the enemy who whispers those lies that you’ve listened to. Sharon will equip you with scriptures to renew your thinking and guard your heart for battle. May you find yourself convicted and challenged as you finish each chapter. May you pursue freedom and abundantly living through Christ.

What Can You Do When You Feel You're Just Not Good Enough? Do the voices in your head say you're not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough...or just not enough, period? It's time to stop listening to lies that sabotage your confidence and embrace the truth of who God says you are. Popular author and speaker Sharon Jaynes exposes the lies that keep you bogged down in shame, insecurity, and feelings of inadequacy. By recognizing the lies and replacing them with truth, you'll be able to silence the voice inside that whispers you're just not good enough accept God's grace and move past failures that have defined and confined you preload your heart with truth to fight your deepest insecurities Your confidence and faith will grow when you trade self-defeating thoughts for God's truth. Today is the day to embrace your incredible worth as a woman who is uniquely fashioned and spiritually empowered. As women we start collecting and believing a number of lies about ourselves. This book shows how to change our minds from self-defeating thoughts (such as worthless, unloved, ugly, stupid, unforgivable, failure, not good enough) to God's truth and His promises for us. This book shows us how to identify the lie, expose the lie so that we can move into the truth that frees us. Sharon lays out a battle plan with simple steps for how to overcome the lies Satan whispers to us. There are two parts to this book. Part I talks about the battle for your thought life (ex. Recognize the Lies). Part II is about the lies women tell themselves (ex. I'm not good enough). I believe it would make a good counseling book. As an added bonus there is a quick reference guide on replacing lies with truth and a Bible study guide included in the book. Readers will have the tools needed for moving beyond self-defeating, negative thoughts to realizing their value, security, and uniqueness in Christ. Enough is a book for any woman and every woman.

When I heard the title - I thought, WOW - I have had ENOUGH! The book really deepens your knowledge of the lie vs the truth. You hear the lies that have been spoken for years, that you have made truth in your life. In this book, Sharon helps you reveal the REAL truth of the Word of God. Because I have read this book, along with making changes in what I now believe as truth, I have begun spreading the TRUTH like butter on bread, to others.

Perceptions of ourselves can be formed by people around us and by our own thoughts and actions. In this book, the author reminds us that we are God's children and therefore, we are precious. This book shows how to change our minds from self-defeating thoughts to God's truth and His promises for us. Awesome book. I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher and this is my own personal honest opinion. No review was required.

I have been so blessed by being able to be a part of the launch team for the new book by Sharon Jaynes, Enough: Silencing the Lies that Steal your Confidence! I'm so excited to share this with everyone! There is so much practical information to help us in this book. One thing truly stuck me in my reading. Sharon wrote, "Once we come to Christ, we can no longer truthfully say, "I can't help myself. This is just the way I am." You can do All things God calls you to do through Christ, who strengthens you. You are no longer a slave to sin. You now have a choice. It is only through the power of the Holy Spirit that we are able to turn "I can't" into "with God's help, I can."" WOW! How powerful is that! I do not have that excuse any longer. She even writes about forgiveness in her book and how to forgive someone who really has done the unforgiveable to you! I have struggled for many years with unforgiveness toward a person and this section of her new book has really helped me to be able to start working on forgiving. Sharon writes in her book, “We cannot get better if we remain bitter and as long as we don’t forgive, we are held in Satan’s vise grip. So if there is someone in your life you need to forgive, don’t miss this opportunity to get this book and put it into practice. Think about this – Sharon wrote, “Unforgiveness is how we securely bind ourselves to what we hate most.” If that doesn’t strike a nerve to want to forgive that person, I don’t know what would. I highly recommend this book because this is one that actually gives you practical ways to change your life! I know it has changed mine! Get your copy today!

`Enough` by author Sharon Jaynes is a woman's issues book. It is for the woman whose thoughts tend to dwell negatively, helping her turn those thoughts to positive thoughts. Like the character, Carrie, in the book I had grown accustomed to, and learned to hide, those negative thoughts that ran rapidly through my mind: worthless, unloved, ugly, stupid, and the list goes on and on. Also, like Carrie, no one knew. Everyone thought I had it all together. One could say I was even envied by my friends. My life began much like Sharon Jaynes did. Like Sharon, I grew up in small-town America, my father was a successful general contractor, Sharon's dad was a successful owner of a building supply company. And, our mothers were successful with their arts-and-crafts. We were the typical American family, so everyone thought. By the age of 12, I had been abused by a significant family member which helped lock in my thoughts of unworthiness, stupid, unloved, and ugly. I had very few friends because of my insecurities. For years I felt unloved by God, wanting to do everything right. I went to church occasionally but still felt unloved at church. I heard enough about heaven and hell that I knew I didn't want to go to hell. But I never heard about a relationship with Jesus. Actually, I am pretty new to that concept. Sharon Jaynes wrote this book because she wants every woman to know the truths about their identity in Christ. Jesus is ready to pour out the affirming words the reader needs to hear. There are two parts to this book. Part I talks about the battle for your thought life (ex. Recognize the Lies). Part II is about the lies women tell themselves (ex. I'm not good enough). I felt the author did a good job of explaining a woman's thought life while telling the reader about her own struggles and how she overcame those struggles. This book is for the woman who struggles with her thought life. I also believe it would make a good counseling book. As an added bonus there is a quick reference guide on replacing lies with truth and a Bible study guide included in the book. My favorite piece of scripture listed in the book is John 8:32: `Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.` Disclaimer: "I was provided a free copy of this book. All opinions are my own."

I recently received an advance copy of Enough: Silencing the Lies That Steal Your Confidence by Sharon Jaynes. I loved the book and thought you would too! I loved it so much I ordered three extras and I'll be doing a study of it with my Incline Village Bible study this summer. This is a book every woman who struggles with seeing herself as God sees her should read. #enoughbook

There are times as women that we feel discouraged, unaccepted, and unloved. In this encouraging book, Sharon Jaynes takes us through the Bible to show us just how much we are loved and accepted by God. This study is filled with Scripture to refute the lies that we believe about ourselves, yet holds us accountable for righteous living. Through personal illustrations, Sharon encourages and admonishes us to draw closer to God by studying and believing His Word. This would be a good personal study and would also work very well as a group Bible study. There are lessons included at the end of the book that help apply the pricnciples to our own lives. I received a copy of this book from the publisher for review. I was not required to give a positive review. This is my honest opinion about this book.

I was so thrilled to be a member of the pre-release team for the book “Enough: Silencing the Lies That Steal Your Confidence” by Sharon Jaynes. AND … it is now available to all of you! When I received my book, I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the reading schedule. Sometimes it takes me a while to “get in sync” with the message or the author’s writing style. But not this time! In fact, I was usually ahead of the plan. Starting with page 1, I was immediately comfortable with Sharon’s easy to read style and could relate to almost every story and example used throughout the book. For most of my life, I’ve thought I wasn’t “good enough” or “smart enough” or “talented enough” or … on and on and on. The first “truth” you’ll discover in this book is that you’re not alone when experiencing confidence-stealing self-talk. Many of us feel insignificant, without skills, and just plain “not good enough”. Sharon encourages us with her easy-to-understand explanations on how to see through the lies and recognize God’s truth. She also provides a “quick reference” of each lie, a reminder of the truth and scripture for reinforcement. After reading just the first chapter, I realized I was humming some of my favorite hymns as I worked around the house -- something I had not done for a long time. I have recommended “Enough” as a series for our women’s Bible study group. Who knows, I might even “volunteer” to lead the group – something I have never done!

MUST-READ for all women. I don't know a woman who wouldn't benefit from this book. There are numerous aspects of life where we are made to feel like we can never be enough on our own - and we have an enemy who is determined to convince us that we will never "measure-up." Sharon Jaynes confronts the lies that play on repeat in the minds of women - she uses real stories from her life and the lives of other women to demonstrate how debilitating those lies can be - then she teaches how to replace those lies with truths from God's word. I picked up this book because I enjoy this author - thinking it would be an inspiring read. I am a confident woman in Christ. However, I’ve realized there are still areas where the enemy tries to hold me back from advancing the kingdom. We can be our own worst enemy and biggest critics. This book has given me tools to disarm the enemy.

I was Blessed to be on the pre-launch team and I can tell you that for me it was clear that I was listening to the many lies that float around in my psyche every day. I am going back to re-read it and fully apply everything one piece at a time in my life. It doesn't mean that I won't falter but I now have the power to kick those lies out and fully live my live in Christ. I highly recommend anyone......women especially but I also think that men go through the same things and that men would benefit from reading it as well.
TCalvert More than 1 year ago
I cannot recommend this book enough! It is right on point for today's Christian woman. We believe lies that we are not good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, etc. In this book, you will learn where these worries really come from and how to combat them with God's truth. I like Sharon Jaynes' writing style- it is like a chat with your best girlfriend. I am looking forward to reading more from this author. I received a copy is as part of the launch team, but this is my own honest review.

Wow…where do I begin? This book is absolutely amazing. Sharon Jaynes really outdid herself with this one. It felt as if she was speaking directly to me on every single page. It really got to the heart of my issues with insecurity. I am and will continue to be a better woman, wife, and mother because of reading this. So many lies that I have believed for so many years, I now have the power to overcome. I wish that I read this book 15 years ago and I plan to refer back to it very often. I would highly recommend every woman reading this review to buy this book. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. It has absolutely changed my life!! I received an advanced copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for my unbiased review.

Sharon's writing just flows. This is an easy read, but packed full of goodness and truth. Women of all ages need to read this book. She helps the reader see the lies that she has believed and then points her to the truth. This is not a preachy book at all. The key for me "I have a choice to make. Am I going to believe God or the lies that satan spewed." This book will increase your confidence in Whose you are! * I received an Advanced Reader's Copy of Enough: Silencing the Lies That Steal Your Confidence from the publisher Harvest House. The opinion stated is my own. I have not been compensated in any way.*

This is an excellent read! I was challenged by the truth that I can overcome while also being encouraged that I'm not alone in the struggle of feeling like I'm never good enough. Specific lies are addressed which helps the reader relate to the author. There are MANY personal stories from the author or women she knows which, again, really helps the reader relate to the author and truths in the book. I wish I could buy this book for all of my friends as a gift because I think it is that encouraging and helpful. You won't want to put this book down because you will feel like you are reading a book about your own daily thoughts and how to have victory through Christ. I received an advanced copy of this book for my honest review.

Enough is an excellent book! I think all women could benefit from the message. We listen too often to the lies from the enemy and don't hear the truth from our Maker who loves us dearly. This book is a life changer and as a mom to three young daughters, I am so glad I read it and can share what I've learned with them. Sharon has a way of sharing stories and scripture that really makes the message impactful. I highly recommend this book!

Wow, what a book! I feel like God chose this book just for me by speaking to my personal needs in so many ways! Sharon Jaynes’ writing style makes the reading so easy, meaningful and personal with imagery, analogies and personal stories of struggles and success. The first big concept I learned is the power of Satan in my life. I have always had problems with jealousy and now I realize that Satan has been placing negative thoughts in my mind. I have been practicing some of the strategies presented in the book to reject these lies and swat them out of my mind. I also have been working on obedience to God, something I’ve always had difficulty with, lacking the confidence to step out in faith. After reading Sharon’s words, I now realize that with the Holy Spirit living and working in me I have the God-fidence to do big things. God wants us to rely on Him and I am not responsible for the outcome of my obedience, only God is (Sharon’s words, not mine). I am now preparing to start and serve on 2 new committees that will make big changes at my church. I highly recommend this book to women of all ages. I only wish I would have known all this when I was younger - better late than never! I am so excited about the woman I am becoming - Enough for me and Enough for God! I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I did purchase an additional copy of the book to share with a friend and will also be doing a bible study at my church with this book.
