Nice Girls are taught early that serving God means earning God’s love and sacrificing oneself to meet the needs of others. Unfortunately, after living a life she thought was what God demanded, her husband wanted, her kids needed, and her church expected, Lynne Hybels felt utterly lost—both to herself and to God.

In this wise and tender book, Hybels tells of her struggle to stop living someone else’s life and to reclaim the unique gifts, strengths, and passions God gave her. And she reveals how turning away from her false view of God as a harsh and demanding taskmaster enabled her to rest at last in God’s sustaining love. As she explains, it’s never too late to discover that who you really are is exactly what delights God and what the world needs.

    " This was a very short/quick read. A different kind of book that really hit home with me. This is a book that will help you open your eyes to the right kind of focus on God and how to be a Godly Woman not just a "nice girl". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 8/29/2013

    " A very easy read. Danielle, you would enjoy this one. Probably nothing you haven't heard before, but good to hear again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Baylor | 7/6/2013

    " Through this book I learned the difference between a nice girl, a good woman, and a dangerous woman. I'm choosing to be the latter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindelynn | 2/17/2013

    " Gave this book 3 stars which surprised me that a book by somebody with the last name Hybels could get such a high rating. Seriously - good book for women who struggle with conservative evangelical stereotypes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 10/12/2012

    " A great little read about who God is and who He is not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 6/23/2012

    " So, this book was written for me, I think. It's a short, to the point read. I've already gone through it a few times and each time I pull out a new nugget. I think every woman who is a self-diagnosed "people pleaser" NEEDS to read this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angel Royal | 3/4/2012

    " Very quick read and such great points. Very simply written but harder to put into practice. She talks about the difference btwn nice girls, good women and dangerous women. "
