Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite

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.

Kristen Clark in her book Becoming a Woman of Worth - Creating a More Confident You enables the reader to look beyond where they presently are to where they can be in Christ Jesus. She discusses how one must seize the opportunities that come their way. We mustn't let those opportunities pass us by without allowing them to help develop us into the individual that would be pleasing to God. Author Clark talks about the myths of self-esteem and where our value truly comes from. Building oneself up in God is the primary way that we can gain our self-confidence and worth. The world and those outside of God will try to devalue us, but we must allow our own value to shine, as well as help and encourage others so they may desire to show self-worth as well.

Ms. Clark takes the reader along a journey that enables each one to better understand how they can become that person of worth and value. There are detailed bits of information given that will show a person what to do, how to do it, and the results that one should expect by making these life-changing choices. There are many scriptures given that allow the reader to dig deeper into God's Word and explore a particular area they may have questions about. This is a very encouraging book and one that will help to improve one's life if read with an open and willing heart.
