ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Is It Just Me?
Author: Grace Valentine
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: February 9, 2021
Genre: Christian Life/Women’s Issues
An anthem for every woman who is weary of living a life in which she knows the right answers but does not believe them.
Is It Just Me? is a book by a popular social media blogger that helps young women find true trust in Jesus when they are overwhelmed and frustrated with their lives.
Many women joke about having trust issues—laughing at their struggle because it feels common but secretly feeling there is no hope. Grace Valentine was one of them. In her twenties she realized her trust issues were not humorous because in reality hers were trust issues with Jesus, her community, her family, and herself. And they were destroying her faith. Grace creatively told herself she was simply being realistic, but the truth was, she was entangled with doubt and lies.
In Grace’s second book, Is It Just Me?, she offers readers a new perspective by helping them find answers to five deeply felt questions.
- Am I the only one who is tired, overwhelmed, doubting, and fearful?
- Am I the only one who feels hurt and lonely?
- Am I the only one who still is struggling to find my purpose?
- Am I the only one struggling to trust that God is there?
- Am I the only one confused about how to be an adult?
Grace’s personal story and perceptive insights show other young women that not only are they are not alone, they can trust God in the middle of their hurts, doubts, and fears.
IN MY OPINION
I may not fall anywhere near Grace Valentine’s reader demographic but found her voice in Is It Just Me? authentic and relatable. Every woman struggles with feeling alone in their seasons of life.
Armed with truths bathed in scripture, plenty of personal anecdotes, and touches of humor, Valentine gets real with readers, in much the same way as a concerned and caring friend would. Yes, we’ve all made decisions we’re not proud of today and this author reminds us of that—all of us have been there. And God is okay with that. He doesn’t expect perfection in us (thank goodness!) but he longs for us to go to Him with our struggles and hurts and disappointments.
Valentine may be young, but God has given her a wealth of wisdom. Isn’t it refreshing to find someone so young who is passionate about putting Jesus first in her life? And how can you not appreciate wisdom like this: “On your difficult days, eat ice cream.”?
