What we become and how we develop is directly related to our self-confidence. In Becoming a Woman of Worth, Kristen Clark not only illustrates this point, but shows women how to get over the numerous hurdles that often stand in the way of being self-confident and self assured. This book is meant to complement an online program called 21 Day Journey, to help change the patterns of how women view themselves by developing a daily habit of finding their worth through the scriptures. She bases her beginning premise on Psalm 139:17-18 from which she poses a question. How precious are your thoughts about yourself? Kristen then begins a definition of self-esteem and responds to some of the myths about it. She then progresses into some practical ways of building self-esteem. The crowning jewel is the section on making confidence into a spiritual mindset. Using God’s Word as the foundation for each part of her work, Kristen allows Christian women to see that it’s okay, even encouraged by the scriptures to be self-confident and that all of us can find our worth in how God views us and build upon that.
Though I am a man, my experience as a residential treatment counselor for adolescent women drew me to this book. Becoming a Woman of Worth was and is exactly what many of the young ladies that I have worked with needed to have in their hands and in their hearts. Kristen Clark gives true, practical suggestions, many of which we used in our program, but she goes a step further and shows how God blesses rather than frowns upon building our self-worth. The truth of what Kristen has written applies not only to women, but to everyone. Much of what was written about placing the needs of others before our own applied directly to me and I gained a great deal personally from many of her practical suggestions. Honest, practical and inspiring, Becoming a Woman of Worth ought to be in the hands of every young lady you know; their future will be completely altered by it.
