It's time to leave behind the discontent of comparison and discover a free and joyful life. Join Pastor Nona Jones--who was recently featured on GMA3--as she gives you the tools you need to kill comparison once and for all.
Nearly all of us deal with the struggle of comparison and finding ourselves lacking. But there is a way to break free from internal and external messages communicating a lack of self-worth. It starts with identifying the basis of your urge to compare and ends with securing your identity to the unchanging confidence of God's love for you.
Nona Jones knows this journey all too well. Throughout her life and in her career--most recently as an executive for the world's largest social media company--Nona discovered that despite professional success, true confidence can only be achieved by defeating toxic comparison and securing our identity to God's approval alone.

Determine your true source of self-worthDevelop practical ways to conquer daily comparisonLearn how to control social media instead of letting it control youDiscover how to accomplish your dreams without comparing yourself at every turnIdentify the root cause leading you to compare your life to others
Through practical insight and down-to-earth encouragement, Nona helps you avoid the despair of comparison and pursue a free, joyful life.
In this empowering manual, preacher Jones (From Social Media to Social Ministry) offers advice for boosting self-confidence. Jones draws on scripture and personal anecdotes to probe how insecurity and comparing oneself with others feed into each other. She tells how Jesus's disciples compared Jesus to John the Baptist, Elijah, and Jeremiah, and in doing so failed to recognize that Jesus was the son of God, leading Jones to conclude: "people's experiences of you is not who you are." The author provides a candid account of her struggle with body dysmorphic disorder and shares that in high school she believed that she looked unattractive compared to her school's cheerleaders, and developed a sense of self-worth tied to her weight. She posits that the "root of insecurity is when your identity is built on an insecure foundation" and encourages readers to live out their faith daily in order to ground their identity in God. Christian living readers will appreciate Jones's application of biblical principles to present-day problems, such as when she urges readers to distance themselves from friends who bring them down because Jesus said to "cut off every branch that bears no fruit." This affirms and inspires in equal measure.
