Publisher Description

What if you knew all the moments of my past that I am not proud of? What if you really knew me, the messy parts that I’ve hoped to forget and worked hard to conceal? For so long, my greatest fear was what you might think of me if you only knew the whole story.
It’s exhausting, this guarding of our stories and struggles. Fear of being found out had caused me to hide—but I wasn’t just covering my flaws, I was unintentionally blocking the beauty of God’s grace. My journey to real freedom began when I quit running from my mess and started trusting Jesus to make something beautiful of it. 
This book is that story. It’s stepping out of shame and insecurity into gospel freedom. It’s  letting God turn our failures and frailties into testimonies of His faithfulness. I’ve discovered that when we quit hiding, God gets the glory and we are able to fully embrace not only our relationship with Him, but also with one another. 

Transparency brings freedom, and in every moment, we'll find that God can absolutely be trusted.

A great book that points us to the greatness and goodness of God

This book really helped me to open up to my community and to be freed from the shackles of shame and guilt of my past and from sin in my life.

So so so good!

So, I’m not really a book person, but i love the Happy Hour podcast so i was pressed every week when i listened. I had to read it. The podcasts that Jamie put out about the book were just phenomenal. So I’ll admit, it took me a good 8 months to read, i just don’t read often but every time i picked up this book the nugget of words that i read were exactly what i needed to hear! I felt known by Jamie. I felt like i understood her and she understood me by the words she wrote in this book. I resonated with her. I was led to Jesus. I felt Jesus pull all of my heart strings, calling me closer and closer with the words god gave Jamie in this book! Thank you Jamie for being vulnerable. Now i feel like i can share the depths of my heart with my friends. Because i want them to feel loved and know just how i feel after reading this!

The Gospel alone Changes Lives

Thankful for this beautiful portrayal of the gospel, in all HIS glory! The story God’s redeeming love through Jesus. No gimmicks, or 10 steps. Just Jesus and his power to change our lives!
