Enough Already is a powerful book about finding beauty within yourself that transcends mere self-acceptance.
The book begins with a quote: "Give a woman a mirror and thirty seconds, and she'll tell you everything that is wrong with how she looks." In subsequent chapters, Barbara L. Roose discusses the value of seeing our beauty and loving ourselves from a Christian perspective. The chapters are short and illustrated with stories from Barbara's life and the lives of other women. Each chapter ends with Group Discussion Questions and Personal Journaling Questions.
I love some of the simple and meaningful points in this book, like the reminder in "Cultivating Our Inner Beauty" to T.H.I.N.K.:
T - Is it True?
H - Is it Helpful?
I - Is it Inspiring?
N - Is it Necessary?
K - Is it Kind?
My favorite chapter was "Becoming a Woman Who Cares." The author breaks down looking and feeling your best simply:
C - Clothing
A - Appetite
R - Rest
E - Exercise
S - Smile
She then expands on each of these items with some very useful, practical tips.
The author writes with a confident, caring tone that readers will enjoy and respond to. I enjoyed reading this Enough Already and found it very inspiring. I would recommend it for other women. This would also be a great book for a Women's Fellowship study.
