POW! BLAM! OOF!
Working women of faith are subjected to daily blows of lies and deception. We are barraged with messages that we’re not good enough, smart enough, thin enough, spiritual enough. We believe that our professions mean very little in the eyes of God. We’re feeling tired and discouraged from holding ourselves to impossible standards. These damaging lies and labels now have a name: Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman is a symbol of the unobtainable. She is a blend of all the women both real and fictional–that we idolize. She is the whispers of doubt and negative self-talk that run rampantly through our minds. It’s time to stop listening. It’s time to slay Wonder Woman!
Killing Wonder Woman is more than a book. It’s a long-overdue weapon that we, as working women of faith, can yield to cut down burnout, destroy discouragement, and set ourselves free of unrealistic expectations. Once we break loose of Wonder Woman’s deception, we can open ourselves more fully to trust God’s plan and integrate Him into all aspects of our lives, including in our workplace calling.
Are you ready to win at work and soar in faith? This is your call to arms.
Thank you to the author and TLC Book Tours for the chance to read this book for free in exchange for my honest review of it.
Killing Wonder Woman is a nonfiction book all about killing labels with confidence, self love and most of all faith. It is a faith based book with a lot of concepts and teaching rooted in scriptures.
I really liked the message in this book about not living life according to labels that society, our family and even that we, place on ourselves. It’s about shirking the assumptions that if we aren’t perfect like Wonder Woman or or if we don’t look exactly like women on magazine covers or if our house isn’t as big as our friends that we are somehow failures. It’s about proactively defeating those little voices and allowing our own light to shine because no matter someone else’s timeline or even ours, God has a plan for our life and has made us unique for our own purposes…and that’s okay. Better than okay.
I am not someone who reads books like this often so at times it was a little much for me. The author did acknowledge that these concepts might seem foreign or uncomfortable to some so I think that was to be expected. I’m also pretty private about my relationship with God so this book shook that up for me which was a good thing I think. I do agree with some points discussed in this book but I don’t agree with all of them which is normal. I went into this with an open mind and definitely am taking some good strategies on dealing with challenges that present themselves internally and also at work and such.
Overall, this book had a good message if you are willing to listen and take it in. 3 stars, I enjoyed it and liked it. It was also a super short, inspirational read.
