Free of Me: Why Life Is Better When It's Not about You by Sharon Hodde Miller

Free of Me: Why Life Is Better When It's Not about You

"Free Of Me" is a great book that will help you dig deep into an issue of pride, which is a sin issue. We all struggle with pride in some way shape or form, but for this book, what I really realized is that everything we must do and be, should honor and always be focused on God! We need to get ourselves out of the way and let God take center stage, but we often don't do that as followers of Christ. What makes Free of Me so great is that Sharon Miller is willing to be transparent about her own faults and struggles. Her points are convicting and also made me dig deep in my faith. Then she also challenges the reader to make sure our eyes our fixed on God. Her advice is practical and applicable. It's easy to do and I never felt frustrated by learning hard truths from this book, nor did I feel judged. I enjoyed this book immensely for the freedom that it brings. She wants you to have the freedom she has experienced in her life. This book is perfect for a freedom ministry. I really enjoyed this book and give it 4/5 stars. I really appreciate its practical application.
