Mandy Hale, the creator of The Single Woman, the social media movement that rewrote the rulebook about singleness, challenges every woman to see that she is sufficient, acceptable, and complete.
After years of trying to prove she was enough in the world's eyes, even working alongside Oprah and hitting the New York Times bestseller list, Mandy hit rock bottom. But as it turned out, that very rock bottom became the most firm foundation she had ever planted her feet on. A foundation so solid, it finally provided the springboard she needed to outrun the taunting shadow of unworthiness that she'd tried to escape her whole life.
Now she wants readers to see that though life may not always be lighthearted and happy and shiny, each woman is deserving of the life she dreams of and hopes for. Nothing readers do can ever take away from their worthiness or enough-ness in God's eyes.
This book is for any woman who wants to overcome heartbreak, claim her healing and step into wholeness!

You Are Enough: Heartbreak, Healing, and Becoming Whole by Mandy Hale is a book about moving forward and maintaining hope when everything feels hopeless. The book is funny, entertaining, and fun to read. It is also inspirational, and focuses on healing from heartbreak and loving yourself. I had previously read another book by Hale, Beautiful Uncertainty: Singleness, Surrender, and Stepping Out on Faith, and I was interested in seeing what new adventures Hale has been on since then. In You Are Enough, I liked hearing about Hale’s ups and downs in dating, from her excitement to meeting a guy on Bumble, to her realization that another guy would never really commit to her. She makes up cute pseudonyms for the different guys she dated, and the book does have a bit of a romantic comedy feel. (Hale would write a good rom-com novel!). Through this book, Hale wisely reminds us that loving and accepting ourselves is a journey. Life does not have to be perfect, and on the road to self-discovery, we can embrace God and embrace life. I am interested in reading Hale’s future books and seeing where her life leads her next. I received this book for review.
Realistic look at the ups and downs of every aspect of life we all go through and wonder if we are the only ones who feel that way. Thank you Mandy for sharing your brokenness with such love and compassion and reminding us we are not alone. And I love your relationship with God, I can totally relate with turning my back on Him for a period of my life and then realizing He was there all along. Thank you sharing your life experiences and helping remind us we are all enough too.
Everyone at some point in life wonders if they are ENOUGH..............Mandy Hale is an inspiration and God sent to us all on dealing with feelings of not being enough. Her story is one of many who don't have the courage to speak or even write down how we feel in this journey of life. I'm grateful to her and have read and reread some of her other books to refresh and remind me that I am MORE than ENOUGH. Her quotes are priceless and I look forward to her Facebook, Twitter and Instagram updates. Thank you, Mandy Hale for being you! Hugs, Liz
This is a book everybody needs to read. Everybody at some point in their life feels like they are not "enough". Mandy Hale is very open and honest about her feelings. It will not only help you if you are feeling like this, it will help other's understand what you are going through. Thank you #NetGalley, FaithWords and #BooksGoSocial for an ARC copy of this book. But most of all, THANK YOU Mandy Hale for writing it. This is my honest review.
