When I so desperately sought the approval of other people, it led me to live a life of chaos. I was literally like an infant being tossed around in a violent thunderstorm—or probably more like a hurricane. This way of living sent me down a path of destruction, thrown every which way in an attempt to “arrive” at Destination: “They Love Me” and trying to “be” whatever was required at that moment to be accepted. Holy moly, am I the only one? Giving the world an à la carte version of yourself will not lead to life. Instead, it will leave you with an unquenchable thirst for more, with your head on a perpetual swivel.
I invite you on this journey with me beyond the shallow and into the deep__beyond the topics that are easy or socially accepted and into the deeper realm that begs to remain silent yet longs to be set free. Truly free. Journal your way to a life worth living.
Drowning in the Shallow
End of People Approval
I LIKE THAT IT IS WRITTEN FROM THE HEART! JILL OPENS HER HEART TO SHARE LESSONS SHE HAS PERSONALLY LEARNED IN LIFE! LESSONS THAT WE ALL SHOULD LEARN! THIS BOOK HAS BLESSED MY SOUL IN MANY WAYS!! I KNOW IT WILL BLESS YOURS TOO!
Raw. Honest. Clear. Pure hope derived from the Holy Spirit delivered to us through the author. This book helped open my eyes to my errors and the effects they have on every area of my life. God, when we seek him completely holds up a mirror to our faces. He will remove everything that doesn't look like him. It takes time, sacrifice and an initial "yes, God" from us.
Shallow is a tell-all confessional, word of encouragement and altar call all in one. Dasher does a thorough job of peeling back the layers of the familiar pursuit of perfection. She has had it all and shows how pursuing perfection did not serve her well. Her raw observations around scriptural confession are very insightful. The honesty and vulnerability are a gift. This book will bless you and encourage you to stay real in your relationships with God and all those around us. Put this one on your list!
These solid, relatable words work as a perfect summary of Jill Dasher’s brand new book, Shallow. If you struggle with a life ever lived for the approval of those around you, Jill is the mentor you’ve been looking for, a friend to pull you out of the shallows and into the rich, deep water of abundant life found in the love and approval of God.
