Behind Those Eyes

I've shared recently the blog of sweet Lisa Whittle- an precious, godly woman and an absolutely fantastic writer. The fact that she is so real, no honest, so authentic in her writing combined with the fact that she has such a heart for Jesus and a gift of being an amazing writer make her blog one of my absolute favorite places to visit. God speaks to me through each of her posts and I look forward to each and every one.


I am currently reading her latest book "Behind Those Eyes" which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. This book is truly amazing and so desperately something I needed to read.


Here's what it says on Lisa's website about the book:

An insightful look at the various roles women play as they cover for the inadequacies that they feel, why they do so, and who they really are in and through Jesus Christ. In Behind Those Eyes, Lisa uses truth from God’s Word on the value of being authentic to discuss the various facades of Ms. Perfection, Ms. Confidence, Ms. Happiness, and Ms. Spirituality. Behind Those Eyes encourages women to face the reality of who they are and who God created them to be. The result helps them to mend broken souls, repair relationships and strength connections with family and friends.

I'm only half way through (because it's one of those books I have to read a bit of and then reflect on before moving on) and see myself and my struggles on almost every page. God's been using her words to direct me to Him and His word and to deal with me on some things I've been hiding from. It's truly been a blessing to me.

Since I love her blog and am loving her book imagine my JOY when I found out that Lisa was coming to Houston next month to speak! I was thrilled and have already purchased tickets to attend with two sweet friends. We are planning to drive down to Houston together for a fun evening and the opportunity to get to hear Lisa speak in person.

If you live here in CS and would like to attend- we'd love to have you join us. She's speaking at Champion Forest Baptist Church and THIS is the link to the event. Buying ticket can be done online and is super easy. If you would like to go just order a ticket and let me know.
