Let's admit it, we want to be beautiful and successful. But could these marks of being an empowered woman actually be idols requiring our slavish devotion? If you have struggled with this, you probably know the feeling that you will never be pretty or perfect enough. In Never Enough, Sarah Ivill discusses issues related to body image and performance as she shares about her past addiction to thinness and fitness. In the process, she confronts five common lies women of all ages fall prey to and points us back to our acceptance in Christ, where we find the true solution to our pursuit of beauty and success.
Five lies we are prone to believe:
1. My ways are better than God's ways, and my wisdom is better than His wisdom.
2. I have to look like "her" in order to be beautiful.
3. My worth is defined by whether or not a man loves me.
4. My significance is based on my success as defined by my superiors.
5. If I had what "she" has, I would be more satisfied than I am now.
