Blog Tour: A Confident Heart (Review)

Confidence is defined as:
1) having strong belief or full assurance; sure: confident of fulfillment.
2) sure of oneself; having no uncertainty about one's own abilities, correctness, successfulness, etc.; self-confident; bold: a confident speaker, and
3) excessively bold; presumptuous.

In A Confident Heart: How To Start Doubting Yourself & Live In The Security of God's Love, Renee Swope tackles a topic that plagues many women - regardless of age - doubt.

She strives to help women exchange their doubt for confidence, hope and more.

Swope's writing style flows off the page, almost straight from her heart. There's an honesty that is intriguing, and warm and inviting.

Each chapter includes a section inviting the reader to pray God's promises, as well as an assortment of questions to encourage reflection and discussion.

I think this book could be completed both both personally and within a close small group setting. In fact, her "Seven Day Doubt Diet" - available free, as a seven-day, emailed resource - might give you the taste you need to dive into the entire book. (I signed up to start it over this long, holiday weekend.)
