Publisher's Summary

"My soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him." - Psalm 62:5  

Worn down by the pursuit of perfection? Are you hustling through life, struggling to meet impossible standards and be everything to everybody? Do you ever wonder if there's any rest on the other side of the rush?

With honesty and humor, Kathi Lipp and Cheri Gregory will help you take a breather and find reassurance as you face the bullies of perfectionism, performancism, people-pleasing, and procrastination. Self-assessments and personal stories will guide you from panic to peace as you learn to pick battles worthy of your time and energy; embrace the freedom of a carefully considered "no"; recognize your strengths and weaknesses in the quest for balance; use authenticity as a weapon to battle bullies; and release yourself from the endless pressure of pleasing others. 

Ditch your feelings of inadequacy and finally come face-to-face with the bold, balanced woman God created you to be. You don't have to be perfect. You just have to be you!

What perfect timing!

I have been a bit overwhelmed with getting through a working vacation and prepping for an event. This book was just what I needed to step back and take a deep breath.

I gave my self time to rest, get things done, make a list and finally ask for help. What a gift it is to have a resource like this book.

I also loved how it was read by the authors. You can really hear their passion for a peaceful life for women. Their voices and vision truly made it difficult to press pause. Thank you!

This Amiable/Expressive got to know herself even better. The Bible verses and references were so uplifting and solidified this true process.

Full of Practical Advice and Spiritual Wisdom

I have read several books meant to help me get control of my very harried schedule and overcommitted life. This one resonated with me the most because of all of the practical examples of how to “Rebel” and how to tap into the Holy Spirit to live a life more full trusting in God. It is engaging and entertaining as well. I could relate to so many of the author’s stories about their own failures and shortcomings. Thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it!
