Many of us believe that we are saved by grace--but for too many, that's the last time grace defines our life. Instead of clinging to grace, we strive for good and believe that the Christian life means hard work and a sweet disposition.
As good girls, we focus on the things we can handle, our disciplined lives, and our unshakable good moods. When we fail to measure up to Many of us believe that we are saved by grace--but for too many, that's the last time grace defines our life. When we fail to measure up to our own impossible standards, we hide behind our good girl masks, determined to keep our weakness a secret.
In Grace for the Good Girl , Emily Freeman invites women to let go of the try-hard life and realize that in Christ we are free to receive from him rather than constantly try to achieve for him. With an open hand and a whimsical style, Emily uncovers the truth about the hiding, encouraging women to move from hiding behind girl-made masks and do-good performances to a life hidden with Christ in God.

I just finished reading Catholicism by Robert Barron and an overall message that I got from that book is that life is about becoming one with God and that God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are in a word love. The more of you that you put into God, the more love that you are yourself.
What an excellent little prayer. Get more love. Get more Jesus in me and my actions and my life in general. When I finished Catholicism last night, I picked up the next book in my stack, Grace for the Good Girl I just finished reading Catholicism by Robert Barron and an overall message that I got from that book is that life is about becoming one with God and that God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit are in a word love.
Letting go of trying so hard, and just love. Things are stacking. I was a good girl, until about eleventh grade. Then I put the love and romance of a boyfriend and a group of friends before my relationship and love for God and the world as I knew it fell apart and pretty much was in shambles until my the year before I graduated college. Anyway, I kept thinking oh, I should recommend this book to Kit-Kat you reading this sweetie? So that was epiphany 1. Going on… into hiding and expectations.
I never would have thought of myself as hiding, but in a way I do it. I have this routine. I get eagerly and overly involved way more that I should put my all into it, and then just walk away.
But what I can tell you is that you do not want to see my TBR pile. As for expectations. Yes, I have those thoughts. The living room is a mess. There are crumbs on the floor and goldfish in the couch.
Things should be neat and organized. My Enginerd works all day. Epiphany 2. But what poisonous words. What horrible thoughts. Yes I do need to put in an effort. What I need to realize is the praise to myself for what I do and can accomplish well. Not suffer and drown in all that I could be better at… Epiphany 3. I love this blogging thing. What is the point in all this reviewing and blogging business?
I definitely do not make money at it. There are those that do, but I refuse to have a blog that looks like a flashing ad. I do have a page see the top bar that has a bunch of affiliates and a paypal tip button. I would gladly take anyone someone wanted to share. I want Creative Madness Mama to be a place of serenity.
See the lavender? See the green? Tea and books. Scripture and peace. Come here and find something to read. Does it matter? But then every once in a while there is a comment that makes my week and I know that there is a point.
Something I say might affect someone. View all 3 comments. Jan 02, Suzanne rated it it was amazing. This book went beyond my expectations.
The scripture used and experiences the author described were so helpful to me in my walk with Christ. I want desperately to believe anew that Christ died for me even though I often feel that I don't have the sensational testimony that others do.
Jesus is still my rescuer even if He is rescuing me from the harsh critic in This book went beyond my expectations. Jesus is still my rescuer even if He is rescuing me from the harsh critic in my own head and the shame that follows when I don't live up to my own set of rules. The freedom I feel after reading this book is all-encompassing.
I am the queen of mask-wearing, and I have to let go and be real. It really brings me to a place of safety as well knowing that God has gone before me, behind me, and He is here with me now. There is no one on earth that can bring that kind of peace. Being home all day raising little ones can be a thankless job, but for right now, it is my act of worship. Instead of beating myself up for my shortcomings, I am resolved to just let God work in me and through me.
I'm reminded of the word "let" which indicates that I am passive and God is the one doing the work. I have grown weary of trying so hard, and that's where I was wrong. Even though I was doing good things, I was taking credit for most of them. I can't even express all that I've taken from this book, but I do know that I'll be reading it again!

Tip: You don't have to worry about making all the money in the world.
Women in Church history have played a variety of roles in the life of Christianity - notably as contemplatives, health care givers, educationalists and missionaries. Until recent times, women were generally excluded from episcopal and clerical positions within the certain Christian churches; however, great numbers of women have been influential in the life of the church, from contemporaries of Jesus to subsequent saints, theologians, doctors of the church , missionaries, abbesses, nuns, mystics, founders of religious institutes , military leaders, monarchs and martyrs. Christianity emerged from within surrounding patriarchal societies that placed men in positions of authority in marriage, society and government, and, whilst the religion restricted membership of the priesthood to males only, in its early centuries it offered women an enhanced social status and quickly found a wide following among women. In most denominations, women have been the majority of church attendees since early in the Christian era and into the present. Women constitute the great majority of members of the consecrated life within the Catholic Church, the largest of the Christian churches.
Grace for the Good Girl: Letting Go of the Try-Hard Life
By Elizabeth Dias. Instead of greeting thousands of worshipers, volunteers stood in the damp cold, ready to explain to anyone who might not have heard that services are now online only, at least until the threat of Covid has passed. Inside, the Missions Cafe was closed. The halls no longer resounded with congregants singing or children racing to Sunday school. This week, as the coronavirus has spread, one American ritual after another has vanished. March Madness is gone. No more morning gym workouts or lunches with co-workers.

I have pretty much always been a good girl. I grew up in a Christian home. I grew up going to church. I had a charm bracelet with the ten commandments, and I memorized them. I was baptized in my pink sweater set when I was 8.

The Roles for Women
Jenna, 19, from Swansboro, North Carolina, was in the bathroom of her church when a woman body-shamed her. Jenna shared a video she recorded of the exchange at the Swansboro United Methodist Church on Twitter over the weekend , saying in the tweet that the woman followed her into the bathroom to say she "couldn't wear jean shorts because I was too fat. At the beginning of the video, the woman could be heard saying, "She's a chubby girl — she's got a dress on that's appropriate," apparently referring to another member of the church. Jenna responds, "So you're sitting here calling me fat?

I'm a good girl, why me? Alicia Keys. She grew up sooner than she was supposed to, having seen the world in a way that little girls are not supposed to. In fifth grade, she lost her virginity to her first love. At thirteen, she got pregnant with the same guy, which caused their relationship to fall short. She was later labeled as the black sheep and had her self-esteem slowly broken into pieces. But all these deplorable experiences she went through while growing up only served as the foretelling of the even bigger challenges that awaited her in the future.
I am writing this post for him and myriads of other young men like him—young, single men that I have conversations with almost daily about life and relationships. I know that God does not call every man to marriage, but for the many that he does, it is a good thing that they find a godly wife. Outside of salvation in Jesus Christ, a godly wife brings more joy and happiness to a man than anything else on earth. She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
