I had just written a blog post on my other blog Tender Hearts about being mislabeled and then I saw this book on Booksneeze! It felt like for sure this was the right book to read and I was right. There were parts of this book that were hard for me to read or get through, but most of what I didn't like about it was format or placement of different things. The content of the book was great.
We are all given labels. From other people. From ourselves. We let these labels stick to us and they effect our lives sometimes on a daily basis. This book goes through so many different labels that we or others may give us and works through them. Often times giving reasons why we have these labels. Why we allow them to hold onto us. Why they at times can be a comfort to us. Then what labels from God we can take to replace the negative ones with.
One of my favorite parts of the book was the keys to each new label. They were so practical, Biblical and helpful. I also loved the end of each chapter...Transformation Moment. It included a section Head, Heart and Hands. Head includes a passage of scripture to go along with the label. Heart is a prayer to help you start your conversation with God. Hands is something active that you can do to help you get rid of that specific label.
Highly recommended book.
