  1. “Please, by all means, regard me. I beg you to see me, to notice my goodness, to ignore my failure, to be inspired by my beauty, to be captivated by my essence. I want my loveliness to overwhelm you such that you cannot catch your breath.” ~ Wow! Powerful words! I can’t wait to experience Grace for the Good Girl.

  2. Ok, so maybe I do have “good girlitis”. I’ll bet every woman at some season in her life has had this virus. Looking forward to reading the cure 🙂

  3. I cry over how your own self is so much of me, and how Our Father IS releasing us to live wholly as we are, to step out, and to believe…trusting His Grace is for us, too! I was an average person who always seemed to get lost in the shuffle (at school especially), and He is showing me I am beyond “average”!

  4. That was so right on! I cannot wait to get that book. That little excerpt spoke so perfectly to my heart. Glad there’s a book out there that will address this real and rampant issue for Christian women.


  5. Emily, you have so perfectly described the girl I was – and sometimes still am – invisible, hiding, terribly afraid and desperately hoping to be noticed. But I am discovering exactly what you said – love leads. And I’m learning how to follow, how to offer my worship in response. Thanks for the peek into your heart.

  6. I cried. Already! I am scared to death that God is going to forget this girl in the middle! I am so in the middle! Thanks for exposing the lies. Can’t wait to read the rest.

  7. For years I lived on the rollercoaster of people pleasing, Up when people were happy with me… down when someone wasn’t. Living constantly aware of what thought other people’s opinions were of me, I was exhausted. Then, his truth set me free. Free to feel loved unconditionally through His grace. Free to be a God pleaser… confident in an identity I found in Him.

  8. I have never read your work, but I will be getting your book. I read the sample and I can see that you have mad writing skills! Have your written anything else and is their a “study guide”?

    • There is a study guide, Kim. It’s in the back of the book. The only thing I’ve every written is my blog, Chatting at the Sky.

      And thanks for your kind words.

  9. This: “Please, by all means, regard me.” and this, “What about the girl in the middle?” have been the story of my life.

    The please notice me, don’t forget me, I’m not significant have…I have wrestled and found freedom in all of those, but those lies so easily entangle and they’re not as noticeable now, but I know they slip in.

    I’m so looking forward to reading your book…I can already see fresh healing and I know God’s going to make me go a little deeper.
