    I finished the book moments ago and I must say, this book is therapy for my soul as I?m potentially reinventing my life this fall. I?m predicting NY times bestseller. You reach us in our head, hearts, and hands, with an amazing sister-like approach, honesty, truth, and love, that m...

    Kick comparison, shame, comfort, and crippling doubt to the curb. Face the reality of your unique strengths - even if they look different than everyone else's (spoiler alert, they do) and what it is you need to do to go scared. Be reminded that you can't do it alone. Accept the invitat...

    I will confess first that I have a hard time getting through a lot of non-fiction books. I was a little afraid after agreeing to read this book but Imperfect Courage had me to the very end. The end, where the last words brought hot tears of gratitude mixed with the unfinished pain the ...

    Imperfect Courage is part autobiography, part self-help book. It?s inspiring, positive and it has a really good message. The message is all told through anecdote and personal story which I didn?t think I?d like as I am not a fan of autobiographies, but in the end, I found it inte...

    Having just received my first piece of jewelry from the Noonday Collection, I was eager to read this book and learn more of the history of this company. Maybe I'm in the minority of Christian non-fiction readers in today's world, but I prefer my Christian books to not have cussing in...

    I wanted to really love this one, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I do like Jessica Honegger's story of grit, influence and faith woven into her being as she fought for the things that mattered to her: her adoption dream, and the seemingly happenstance start of her Noonday company. ...

    All that Jessica has accomplished is truly amazing, as is her heart for the world and those in it. That being said, I think I wish the third section had been the majority of the book, it really got me excited about making a difference and ?widening my circle? and I would have loved...
