  • Why Christian women may feel more pressure and uncertainty about their identity than women outside of the church and what we can do about that
  • Seeking restoration for our right relationships with each other and with God
  • Putting our relationship with God first and being responsible for our own growth in Christ
  • Being gracious with ourselves and with other women and helping others find freedom
  • The life-changing realization that God is bigger than our circumstances and challenges


  • A few of Jess’ favorite devotionals in the book
  • How Jess and Hayley actually approached the writing process on this book
