Almost everyone I know suffers from some sort of shame problem. And those I know who don't seem to suffer from it are simply doing a better job of hiding it. If you are like me, you would love to lose those shameful feelings and become more confident in who you are. In her book Unashamed: Healing Our Brokenness and Finding Freedom from Shame, Heather Davis Nelson shares how Jesus Christ and the Gospel can free us from our shame.

About the Book:
Unashamed: Healing Our Brokenness and Finding Freedom from Shame offers hope to those struggling under the burden of shame. This book shines the life-giving light of the gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, directing our attention to the God who promises to forgive and restore us—no matter what.

About the Author:
Heather Davis Nelson (MA, Westminster Theological Seminary) is a writer, counselor, and speaker. Heather writes regularly at HeatherDavisNelson.com and has been a featured writer at the Gospel Coalition, as well as a contributing author to the Journal of Biblical Counseling. She and her husband are parents to twin daughters and live in southeastern Virginia. 





My Thoughts:
Like I mentioned earlier, I struggle with thoughts of shame and would love to lose those feelings. Unashamed is a great reminder that Jesus came to release us from those feelings, to give us freedom in Him. This book touches on the most common areas of shame, especially for women - body shame, social shame, and performance shame. It also addresses how we usually respond to shame and how we, through Jesus, can change our responses. 

I love that each chapter ends with questions for reflection and discussion. This would be a great book to read with a group of friends and discuss.
