I am reviewing a copy of Me, Myself &Lies for Young Women through Harvest House Publishers and Netgalley:
This book points out that we all talk to ourselves, often in that still small voice, but we don’t always pay attention to the things we say to ourselves. The author calls the talking to ourselves in our mind “Soul Talk.”
Jennifer Rothschild reminds us that we all ask ourselves questions like “am I good enough?” “Will I be made fun of at school because of what I wear?”
We are reminded too that there are both good and bad ways to start the day, waking up Early, having clothes your going to wear picked out the night before, having a good breakfast. The author encourages us to start our day in this way, and instead of using negative self talk, we should use positive self talk.
The author encourages the reader to make a playlist of things you want to say to yourself, and then take stalk in whether it lifts you up, or breaks you down.
Jennifer Rothschild reminds us that words matter, and wise words really matter. She goes on to point out that women speak an average of 25,000 words a day, and when you factor in texts, tweets and messages the number is far greater than that.
We are reminded too that Jesus’s words are Gacious, Kind, Pleaseant, Curtious, Considerate, Thoughtful and Friendly.
The readers are encouraged to pay attention to what you are saying to yourself in your self-talk because negative self-talk can do some real damage.
The author goes on to point out that our physical health plays a big role in our mental health. She reminds us too that going through hard times happens but that does not have to equate to a negative mindset.
I give Me, Myself &Lies for Young Women five out of five stars, and would highly recommend this book to girls from Junior High age to College aged.
Five out of five stars.
