I don’t know if it’s true or not, but I’ve read that women are taught from a young age to be ashamed. Don’t get me wrong, I believe that a certain amount of shame is very necessary and is actually a good thing, but at some point I, personally, developed way more shame than I need. To the point that it interferes with my life and my happiness. Unashamed is meant to help us let go of those negative feelings and find the joy and peace that God intends for us. I had that once but have lost it, not necessarily from shame but as it turns out that isn’t really the important part.
About the book:
those struggling under the burden of shame. This book shines the life-giving light of the
gospel on the things that leave us feeling worthless and rejected, directing our attention
to the God who promises to forgive and restore us—no matter what.
