Fall Book Recommendations- Tammy

If you struggle with shame, have insecurities or doubts, then this book recommendation is for you! Crash the Chatterbox by Steven Furtick

This book is powerful, funny, convicting and full of God's truths. Pastor Furtick discusses all the ways the Enemy speaks to us about our insecurities - whether it be our abilities, talents, parenting, etc.

He walks us through how to notice when the "Chatterbox" (aka Satan) is speaking, how to realize that the Chatterbox only spews lies, and how to combat these lies with God's truths.

What I absolutely love about this book is Furtick's ability to share wholeheartedly from his own experiences, admitting his own insecurities in ways that are humble and honest. His sharing allows the reader to realize that no one has it figured out, no matter what the Chatterbox says.

One of my favorite lines from the book is from Chapter 2 which states: "One of the main reasons we struggle with insecurity is because we're comparing our behind-the-scenes with everybody else's highlight reel." Oh how true this is! I find myself constantly comparing how I feel internally with how others look on the outside, or what someone lets me see on their outside.

This book will deepen your faith and dependence on God and allow you to hear more of God's truths as you listen for His promptings.
