Among our greatest fears is the dread of what others would think of us "if they only knew" - the parts of our past we hope to forget, the parts of our present we work to conceal. Yet the part we actually do the best job of hiding is not the unsightly debris of our own mess, but rather the stunning beauty of God's grace. The fear that demands we protect this false image at all costs leads us to unwittingly declare a false gospel at every turn. Jamie Ivey finally grew tired of doing that, tired of being too ashamed and insecure to let others see the full extent of what God was capable of doing with our unworthiness. So she quit hiding.

I’ve never written a book review but had to for this one. I so appreciate Jamie’s honesty, transparency, encouragement and wisdom. I’ve been a Christian for many years but there are still certain sins I struggle with and carry a lot of shame for. God has spoken to me about this through this book. I can’t recall reading a book as honest as this, we need more of it!
