confessiona of a raging perfectionist ~ Amanda Jenkins

This is a great book that I really felt connected to.  It is told in a diary format by different subjects that women deal with on a daily basis.  Amanda is a perfectionist and always listing out her daily to do list, when not achieving everything on the list she feels like a failure.  Sound familiar?  It does to me, that is why I connected to this book, once I started reading I couldn't put down.  Each chapter describes a subject such as vanity, money, parenthood, pride, testimony and much more. 

Amanda explains how she expects so much from herself, then tells how to use GOD's word to stop being so hard on yourself and enjoy what GOD gives you from each day.  It is a great read and easy to understand that GOD doesn't want you to be perfect and make a list each day, he just wants you to enjoy his blessings.  The set up of this book is very easy to read from cover to cover or you can just pick it up and read a chapter that you feel you want to read, that is the great set up of this book.

I recommend this to women of all ages, read this book.  I loved it and felt wow it really is ok to stop and enjoy the day and not to have to do everything on the list.  Perfection is not in GOD's plan for anyone, he wants you to learn and be on his journey with HIM.
