Christian women are often taught from the time they are young to be seen, but not heard. As a result, perfectionism, people-pleasing and performance become their mantra.
But what happens to a Christian woman's mental health when pleasing others and staying quiet is coupled with trauma and PTSD? The brain undergoes significant damage where shame, depression, intrusive thoughts, and anxiety shackle them. But it doesn't have to be this way!
No Longer A Yes Girl: Exchanging Perfectionism, People-Pleasing, and Fear for Restorative Mental Health is an inspirational Christian memoir that takes the reader on a journey through harrowing trauma and mental collapse; a combination with tragic potential that ends with hope, restoration, and the knowledge that another's opinion of you is less important than the opinion you hold of yourself. Rooted in Biblical truth, this book is the epitome of brave Christian living.
