Everyone thinks you’ve got it together. But inside, you’re asking, “Am I enough?”

No matter how good we look to others, the nagging voice of self-doubt is hard to shake. We ask questions like:

  • If people really knew me would they still accept me?
  • Will I be rejected when I can’t perform?
  • Can I pull this off?
  • What if I end up alone?
  • Am I missing out on what life should be because I can’t shake this fear?

If you find yourself having thoughts like these, Erica Wiggenhorn wants to lead you to freedom. Drawing from the story of Moses—the greatest self-doubter in the Bible—Erica shows how self-doubt is tied closely to self-reliance. It’s only when you cast yourself on God that you find the true source of strength.

Are you enough? The answer is no . . . but your God certainly is. Step out in His power instead of your own and watch your confidence blossom because you’re in the hands of I AM.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Praise for Letting God Be Enough

“In her new book, Letting God Be Enough, Erica Wiggenhorn speaks right to my heart. Like many women, I have struggled with feelings of inadequacy, fearful that I will never be enough. And while it is true that I will never be enough, I belong to a God who abundantly provides everything I need and more to fulfill His exciting purposes for me. From the story of Moses, Erica shows us how to trade our striving for surrender and replace our self-doubt with faith in the God who is more than enough. Solidly grounded in Scripture, Letting God Be Enough is a must-read for every woman who wonders if she is enough.”
Bible teacher and author of ten books, including Deep Rooted and Heirloom: Living and Leaving a Legacy of Faith

Letting God Be Enough brings readers into the presence of Moses, where they discover a relatable guide wielding profound insights to light our journey of faith. Erica Wiggenhorn draws us a map out of insecurity and fear by inviting sojourners to venture deep into personal exploration. Her genuineness welcomes participants to pave this difficult path of Christ-centered confidence together. This Bible study resonates with my passion as a life coach and licensed therapist to fortify insecure minds, hearts, and souls to become heroes of their divine stories. I cannot recommend Letting God Be Enough highly enough.”
Award-winning author, speaker, Flourish-Meant podcast host, and life coach

“Do you struggle with inadequacy, fear, failure, or disappointment? Then Letting God Be Enough is the perfect book for you. Erica addresses the emotions we all feel—emotions that tell us we’re not good enough. As she takes us on a journey through the life of Moses, we can relate to his struggles. And just as God proved Himself to be enough for Moses, we can be confident that enough for us, no matter how overwhelming the situation may seem. You will be encouraged and spurred on in your own journey of faith. I needed this book!”
Author of On Bended Knee: Praying like Prophets, Warriors, and Kings
Women’s Ministry Director at First Evangelical Church, Memphis, TN

“Bestselling and award-winning author Erica Wiggenhorn is never afraid to tackle the tough topics in the Bible—and surrender is no exception. Through honest personal examples and stories, Erica exposes the deep inadequacies that lie deep within every heart. She answers questions like ‘What if I am not enough?’ and ‘What if people don’t like me?’ with gut-wrenching vulnerability. But she doesn’t leave us there. She not only combats the enemy’s lies with the truth of in-depth study of Scripture, she leads us into a new promised land—one that begs us to leave behind the fears of yesterday and helps us forge ahead into a new tomorrow of an identity secure in Christ.”
Multi-genre award-winning author

“Enough is a complicated word. A word I hear repeatedly in my counseling office. I’m done. I’ve had enough! Typically, my response is, ‘What are you done with? What do you mean by enough here?’ With spiritual urgency, author Erica Wiggenhorn is saying, ‘I’ve had enough!’ Enough of feeling inadequate. Enough of self-deprecating behavior and belief systems. Enough of jealousy and limiting mindsets. Enough of distraction and disappointment. In Letting God Be Enough, Erica becomes our well-versed and experienced trek leader and leads us into the terrain of Moses’ life to show us God’s processes and promises to bring Moses into new places of freedom. She’s gone before us to get the lay of the land, to scout the flora and fauna, and serves as ‘a tent kicker’ as we move through this adventure to our very own promised land of freedom.”
