Review: Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat? by Michelle Wilson

Why do clothing stores hang fun-house mirrors in their dressing rooms?

• The laundry doesn’t cry when it’s not folded, so why should I?
• Can I be confident even if an elevator calls me fat?

Michelle Wilson’s humorous yet poignant insights help women examine the limitations we place on ourselves out of insecurity and self-doubt. We have faith in God, but do we know that He has faith in us?

When we see ourselves with God’s eternal perspective, we can feel confident and whole—even in our imperfection. Just think what we might accomplish if we truly believe that we are more important than we know, stronger than we realize, and extraordinary in every way.

For any woman out there who needs a good boost of confidence and guidance to help improve the way you look at yourself, I highly recommend you, inhale, consume, absorb, this book!!!

I give five big gold stars to Michelle Wilson for writing a book that is so full of common sense and practical principles that can help us improve our lives.

From beginning to end I was drawn to the simplicity of this book. I usually don't like self-help books, but this is beyond a simple self-help, this is a great way to teach yourself how to grow and become a better person.

Her suggestions to "Learn to See" and then "Choose to Be" are demonstrated so clearly and matter-of-factly that anyone on any level can understand and find a way to make their perspective, their lives, and their outlook on the future better.

Thanks, Michelle, for being in-tune with the spirit and helping us find a plain and simple way to draw closer to Heavenly Father. It's not always easy, but you have given us the tools to make ourselves better.

I loved this book. Michelle's writing is fun and infectious, allowing the reader to relate easily to someone on their level. Two Thumbs UP!!!

Does This Insecurity Make Me Look Fat? can be purchased at Deseret Book, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
