Worth Living: How God's Wild Love for You Makes You Worthy by Mary DeMuth

How God's Wild Love Helps Us Overcome Feelings of Worthlessness

All women yearn to wake up each morning knowing that, no matter what their circumstances, they can feel joy because they are secure in God's love for them and their unique place in the world.

With deep compassion, Mary DeMuth dares women to believe that the God who starts a good work in them is faithful to bring it to glorious completion. That the God who redeems them also loves them—right now and always—with a beautiful love. That they are daughters of the King, always welcomed in his presence. She helps women discover a future where they know they are wildly loved, they feel strong and secure, and they are destined to have a great impact on the world around them.

You are living a life worth living!! If you've struggled through life with feelings of worthlessness, doubt, fear etc....this book is for you. In it Mary lists the lies the enemy whispers in our ears and combats them with God's truth. We are healed and set free by the sacrifice on the cross. Jesus died so that we could live and Mary does an amazing job of infusing lots of scripture to remind us of just how much we are loved by God. It is a life changing book to say the least!!!!! "You are His dwelling place, infused with worth. Even when you walk with a limp. Even when you feel unloved. Even when you're overlooked. Even when you overwork to prove your worth. Even when your strength ebbs and fades. Even when insecurity takes deep root. Even when you feel ugly. Even when the past strangles you. Even when nothing you do seems to matter. Even when money and success elude you. Even when you story takes a violent turn. You are living a life worth living." (p.199)

If you struggle with your self-worth, Mary’s book Worth Living is just the book for you. She reminds us through Scripture just how much God values us. And it shows that by denying our own worth, we criticize His greatest creation: US! This breaks His heart and stunts our spiritual and emotional growth. In this book, Mary takes a look at 10 lies that kill our worth and refutes them with the 10 beautiful truths that come straight from scripture. The truths such as: I am wildly loved, I am more than a to-do list, I am chosen and I am a redemptive story, to counteract the lies that we tell ourselves. This is a practical book, filled with arguments taken from the scriptures that will help us to understand our worth and to help us see ourselves as God sees us. Each chapter ends with a set of discussion questions, questions that would be particularly useful to journal about and really dig deep to pull those lies out by the roots. It would also make for a very compelling Bible study, especially for a small women’s group. If you have ever struggled with feelings of worthlessness or shame, I highly recommend this beautifully written work by Mary DeMuth, who has lived the life and experiences she writes about. She has a mission to share her struggles to help others deal with their own struggles. Disclosure: I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Learning to Live Worthy "You may feel lame in soul and heart, but the truth is that you are loved by the Creator of the universe." These words captured my attention from the start. Mary DeMuth does a masterful job addressing the topic of worth in her book "Worth Living". Our minds are the fields where truth and lies do battle. For years I've felt the need to check off all the things on my to-do list and look a certain way in order to feel I measure up. You too? Mary gets to the root of these issues, exposing them for the lies they are. Each lie is followed with a corresponding truth. Culture would have us believe that we are what we produce, we will never overcome our past, and our worth is tied to a paycheck. God wants us to know we are wildly loved, "warts and all." When truth is not only accepted but lived out, life is worth living - and our worth is forever settled by the One who gave us life. Two thumbs up for this amazing book that points readers to a great God who makes us worthy.

How about a book that leads you through 10 lies that make you feel unworthy while changing your mindset to feeling worthy all with beautiful scripture that speaks directly to your heart and soul? Does this sound like a book you'd want to read? If so, then you need to buy this book. The author beautifully points out lies that she has believed (lies that you may believe too) and how, through scripture and God's unfailing love, she has been able to overcome those lies and finally believe in her worth. Since reading this book, I've experienced a change. A change in how I treat myself and a change in how I allow others to treat me. Because I AM worthy. So thankful for this book.

I was asked to post my honest review in exchange for a copy of the bo8k. At first, as I began reading this book, I wasn't sure if it would even relate to me. I don't have an ugly sexual abuse story to tell, no drug abuse, actually a rather boring testimony. Yet, the more I read, the more I began to admit that Mary had written this book just for me! I believe you will feel that way also. I realized that I bought in to many of lies of Satan that convince me that I have no worth to my life. My value as a person is dependent upon what I do (lie), it's dependent on what others think of me (lie), and I am not worthy of a loving relationship (also a lie). Mary beautifully walks us through many of the lies we have bought in to. She is very annointed in using word stories and pictures to help us understand the lies but then she lovingly shows us what God's truth is. At the end of each chapter she then has discussion questions to help explore and when needed take the steps to walk in the truth. Guaranteed that you will relate to what Mary has been led to write! It WILL change your life

"Worth Living" encompasses all that is true about you and me - we are wholly loved and accepted by God. It is so easy to focus on our shortcomings and failures, allowing our minds to believe the lies that we ourselves have come to believe - I am worthless, insecure, inept, forgotten, incapable, and ugly. Mary DeMuth refutes these lies with the truth that God is wildly in love with us, chose us before time began, and created us to be beautiful, capable, and worthy. Mary writes, "If God’s love for us is based on his love for Jesus Christ, then we are safe. We can live freely." She shows us how to experience and live out a life uncaged, free from the bondage and fear these lies have kept us chained to. And to grab ahold of the promises that God chooses us because He loves us and values us beyond measure. I can't wait to share this book with my counseling clients, Bible study groups, and dear friends and loved ones. It is a life-changing message of hope and restoration.

Mary DeMuth comes from a childhood of abuse, and she thought she was not worthy of love. Jesus changed her life, and this book tells you that now she knows she is worth loving, and her life is “Worth Living”, and so is yours. She reveals 10 audacious truths she discovered in the process of changing her life. I really enjoyed this book!

"Maybe I stand here to be loved. Maybe you stand here to be loved. Maybe the point is to sit at the feet of Jesus and rest there, not striving, not pushing, not jumping up and down, not rebelling to be noticed, not hollering. Just sitting at his feet, practicing our worthiness before the One whose worth outshines the stars." Probably my favorite quote from Demuth's new book, Worth Living. Yet there are so many words which touched my heart. I don't know where to begin but many of the things Demuth shared about feelings of unworthiness is so where I'm at. Indeed we are all "cut from the same humanity cloth". We are all connected. Maybe my mind lies. Maybe my past no longer defines my worth. Maybe it isn't true that I need to look perfect...Juggle well...Never fail. Please everyone...Stand out...Shrink back. I'm not that scared little girl who felt like such a bother. I still feel like a bother. Oh my Goodness, I'm just so tired and I'm falling apart and my anxiety is immobilizing me and this book so spoke to my heart. I needed to read the words about facing my past and finding my truth---that I'm am worthy just because I am a child of God. I am "wildly loved", "chosen", and "weakly strong". I am a "redemptive story". I think I first read Mary Demuth's book after searching God/Spirituality and sexual abuse...wondering if there was anyone else like me. Searching for someone to believe me. Maybe I just needed to believe in myself and God that I am worthy.

Don't we all feel inadequate, messy, misshapen, and worthless sometimes? Mary DeMuth tackles our biggest fears head-on with this intimate look at the issues women face. She covers it all -- beauty, productivity, relationships, sins, and depression. She doesn't shy away from bullies or critics, but rather reaches out from personal pain to offer US the help, healing, and love God promises in His Word. This is a must-have resource for Christian women's bookshelves, a volume to read, discuss and ponder regularly. I plan to read it yearly!

I have a new favorite book! Worth Living by prolific and versatile writer, Mary DeMuth, grabbed my attention immediately with the most encouraging words I’ve heard in a long, long time: “God has chosen you. All your quirks. All that baggage. All those secret and not-so-secret failures. You are chosen.” Mary writes with candor of her own experience and shares her journey to healing and wholeness. I read Worth Living in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. No need to wait for the summer’s best seller list to decide on your next read. I highly recommend Worth Living, sure to be the biggest hit of the season
