Review by Jill Williamson I love Beth Moore. I've never met her, but I've done several of her Bible studies and had the privilege of attending one of her conferences. The woman inspires me. Why? Because she's real. She's suffered through life, just like the rest of us, and she refuses to let that define her. Praise Jesus for that! That, and her passion for studying the Word of God, draws me, and thousands of other women, to her like sheep to a shepherd. She is a disciple of Jesus. She teaches His truth in a wonderful, personal, life-changing way. So when I saw this book, I knew I needed it. I've always had low self-esteem. And I am plagued by insecurity. The smallest little comment will send me into a spiral of woe. One example, I have the nasty habit of interpreting faces. I can read minds, too, you know. If someone looks at me funny, I know I did something to make them upset with me, and I can't stand it until I know everything is okay again. I've also trained myself to interpret email tones. I entertain my husband every time I read an email to him. He says I read every word with a negative, attacking tone, as if the author has a personal agenda against me--or someone. One of my husband's most telling phrases is: It must be exhausting being you. Well, ouch. But he's right. It is exhausting being so insecure. I don't mean to do this to myself. And I'm tired of it. And a bit ticked off, as Beth was in the beginning of her book. Having read the book, I will say that I now have confidence that I can beat this thing. Insecurity distracts our minds from living the life God intends for us. It keeps us weak instead of strong. It keeps us distant instead of loving. It keeps us judging instead of reaching out and building lasting friendships. Once again, Beth Moore has inspired me. I'm saying, "So long, Insecurity! You don't own this girl!" Whoo hoo! Now that's something to get excited about. If you've ever felt insecure, sit down and talk it out with Beth. And that's exactly what this book was. A nice, long, heart to heart with Beth Moore about a topic that plagues us. I highly recommend it.

Beth deals with one of those topics that we all try to hide, our insecurity. Do your insecurities keep you from using the gifts God gave you, then this is the book for you! I had a hard time putting it down, it did not take long to realize that this would be one of those rare books that would continue to make a big difference in my everyday life.

None of us are immune to feelings of insecurity. It could be something in our past that still haunts us, or something we are dealing with right now, or maybe something that worries us about our future. In this book, Beth Moore covers many different examples from real people who were willing to talk about the things that have made them feel insecure. I have read several other books written by Beth Moore, but this one really hit home for me. I could see myself in several of the examples, and some of them really made me laugh. We are such a curious species, and this book helps us to focus on what is really important. We can have confidence and security because of the gift of grace given to us by our Heavenly Father. We are his children, and we need to remember that! My absolute favourite part of the book? Right smack in the middle of the book there is an awesome prayer that is ... almost ten pages long! The reader is encouraged to find a quiet spot, a place to be undisturbed for at least half an hour. The prayer is to be read out loud, and there are blank lines to add your own thoughts. What a powerful prayer and one that I will go back to again and again. I cannot say enough about this book, except to encourage everyone to read it. Please get yourself a copy, and then you can also say, "So Long, Insecurity!" Thank you to Tyndale House Publishing for providing a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.

Beth Moore has created an inspiring book that gets to the root of women's insecurity through spiritual scripture, testimony, and in such a structure that readers not only explore the causes for their insecrity, but they understand how insecurity has hindered their progress. I read the entire book in one day - - it was that compelling and I have since practiced the prayer in Chapter 9 and have used this book to explore myself and my relationships with others.

So Long, Insecurity by Beth Moore is aptly subtitled: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us. Moore, who is well respected in the field of Christian devotionals, has hit one out of the park with this book about discarding our insecurities and self-hatred. She opens her heart and exposes her own struggles with insecurity, inviting the reader to see her as a good friend. Through Scripture and personal stories, she exposes the truth behind the source of insecurities as well as the Godly truths He would have us know about our true identities. The Lord wants us to know how important we are to His kingdom and just how much He loves us, and Moore really focuses on encouraging readers to acknowledge who God created them to be. Every chapter feels like a heart-changing conversation with a best friend who knows you inside and out. It's Moore's humility and love for God that shine on every page and will win over readers.

This book is so helpful in addressing an issue that plagues all women. It is humorous and insightful and faces unflinchingly the trap that insecurity lays for each of us. It exposes the weave of entanglement we find ourselves in even from a young age, and with her usual graceful and honest style, the author attempts to free the reader from that web. It highlights truths that are relevant to every woman, and more than once I found myself nodding my head in affirmation. Beth Moore is gifted in transparency and in meticulous study. She listens well to a blog community which she has created in the last few years, and addresses the answers and questions brought to that digital table, with wisdom, humor and precision. I recommend it for most readers and hope that it is the first or better yet, final step in freedom from an age old pit.

I was excited to be able to review Beth Moore's new book So Long, Insecurity: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us. This is a book that every woman should read. When I first saw the book was going to be available for review, I thought I'd like to read it because I've enjoyed Beth Moore's work for several years now. As I read it, though, I was really thankful to read the message. My thoughts: Several times as I was reading I was laughing and shaking my head in agreement to see myself in her stories and words. Beth wants to encourage women that we don't have to live in insecurity. Through the book we see the damage that is caused because of our insecurity. We live in a society that adds to our feelings of insecurity. What I liked about the book was that Beth used real comments from real women that she gathered doing a survey on her blog. She also has feedback from men, which was very eye-opening to see men's perspective on women's insecurities as well as insecurities that men have. Insecurity is not just for the female gender. I highly recommend that YOU read this book. There is something in this book for women of all ages. I already have two friends who've asked to borrow it, and I have many others I want to share it with too. "She is clothed with strength and dignity." Proverbs 31:25 Also, I'd like to mention there is a simulcast event on April 24, 2010 on this topic. Thank you to Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book.
