This book was written for those who want to grow closer in their relationship with God, who want to stop living their life regretful, bitter and depressed over mistakes, who struggle to move on from their past, and who have a keen desire to realize that though life isn't perfect, God is, and that true happiness can be found in Him. In this book I share how I fell short in my relationship with God and struggled with wanting to be perfect, look perfect, and feel perfect for much of my life, particularly during my seasons of attending college and graduate school - but how I triumphed over my adversities and imperfections to find success, joy, and a strong spiritual faith. You may be someone who feels like God is not enough and unsure of how to become the person He has called you to be. You may be struggling with personal sins, broken relationships, confusing emotions or bound to guilty pleasures. This book is about letting go of perfectionism, materialism and embracing God's Word to move beyond the mistakes and live your best life in faith.
