Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt held back from the abundant life God promises you? Do you ever look at the satisfaction and success in other people’s lives, and wonder where yours is?

In You Be You, beloved podcast host and author Jamie Ivey reveals that the abundant life you want is closer than you think. It’s not over there in someone else’s life. No. It’s right here, right now, in your life as it already is - you just have to know how to take hold of it. And in this book, Jamie shows you how to: Throw out false definitions of success. Give up the idea that you must have someone else’s skills, talents, family, or resources to succeed. 

Use the beautiful level of influence that God has given you. Start leaving your deepest mark on the world by living your story. Are you ready to finally bloom where you’re planted? To finally free yourself to flourish? To live a life that could only be done by him and through you? Then jump into You Be You, and you’ll find yourself satisfied and succeeding in ways you never expected.

Success = Faithful

So many great points in this book but the one I hope to remind myself is success should mean faithfullness. My reading of this book happened to overlap the passing of a dear friend who was a great example of someone who used their life to be faithful in service to our Creator. This book was a great reminder of our true calling. I'm so glad Jamie chose to narrate this book herself as it gave such a realness to what she wrote.

What I needed to hear

In this season of 6 feet apart when church and friends are at arms length, this book has mentored my heart. I think we all want to be somebody. And yet in Christ we already are. Our faithfulness matters even if it is 2 talents. Thank you Jamie for holding me by the shoulders, looking me in the eye, lovingly calling out my pride and discontent, and pointing me to truth.

Simple title, bigger message

I thought the book would be “simple” if being simply you was an “easy thing” but this book took me to places I didn’t expect. Your path is your own, uniquely yours, not meant for the comparisons of this world where who and what you are said to not be enough. We are becoming, in any circumstance or season. Don’t under value any bit of you of where your life is or where it was or where it will be. Jamie does such a great job narrating, keeping me intrigued and feeling intimate. Highly recommend.

You be You

I have listened to her podcast and have been waiting for this book. I carried around a hard copy for two weeks before God told me to give it away and so I bought the audio version. I couldn’t stop listening. I had to repeat parts. She told you hard truths in a nice way that makes you stop and reflect. This book will definitely get a second listen.

Life giving!!

Jamie’s writing is so fun and her reading is awesome! The content is what I loves the most!! Spoke volumes to me and it helped to break away years of bondage from what I looked as lack of success. I found out I am exactly where I am supposed to be from the time being. Thank you Jamie for being used by God to write this book for me! I truly enjoy the freedom I get to live now!!

Not Christian fluff

What I loved about this book as a seminary student is that it is not feel good Christian fluff with a pink cover for women conditioned toward feel good faith. No. Jamie is on a mission to speak truth over the lies the world has spoken into Christian culture about how we are enough apart from Christ. Jamie, through scripture and story telling encourages us to live bold lives for Jesus with the help of Jesus and in the capacity we have only because of Jesus. Well done!
