No More Holding Back: Emboldening Women to Move Past Barriers, See Their Worth, and Serve God Everywhere
As a woman, it can be tough. We face wage discrimination, gender inequality, and sexism. There are people in this world who believe that women hold a special place and that that place is beneath. In Christianity, women endured the same defeat as they were only given certain roles to fulfill and blamed for acts while men were not held responsible. In No More Holding Back Kat Armstrong challenges us as women to embrace our purpose. Armstrong “debunks five common myths about women and invites us to discover the joy and freedom of being all in for Jesus.” The myths that she talks about are:
1. Women can’t be trusted to learn and lead.
2. I don’t have a lot to offer.
3. My greatest joy is marriage and highest calling is motherhood
4. I am too much to handle.
5. Leading ladies don’t fit in supporting roles. She then offers a solution, which is to do what God says regardless of what anyone else thinks or says. My favorite chapter is Chapter Seven: “All your soul.” This resonated with me because, in my season, I am learning to praise God when life gets real. This is a great book and, I love that at the end of each chapter she provides reflective questions to make you think about each chapter.
