Live your one life well.
We pretend to lead picture-perfect lives. We post filtered images of our families smiling on a sunny beach, our protein shakes accenting our pre-workout selfies, and our freshly baked cookies cooling in our spotless kitchens. But we sit at home scrolling through Instagram feeling empty, lonely, and lost.

After hundreds of honest conversations with women from around the world, Susan Sohn has come to understand the pressures twenty-first-century women feel to maintain glamorized portrayals of themselves. In True You, Susan shares insight from her interviews and personal experiences that encourage you to:
  • reject the lies that you’re not enough and learn to walk in truth.
  • ignore the pressure to perform and know who you are in Christ.
  • stop masking loneliness and connect with other women.
Once we allow ourselves to be seen, known, and loved—just as we are—we become free to be who God created us to be. Find the true you and lead a life of authenticity.
