No More Faking Fine

Ending the Pretending

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

If you’ve ever been given empty clichés during challenging times, you know how painful it can feel to be misunderstood by well-meaning people. Far too often, it seems the response we get to our hurt and disappointment is to suck it up, or pray it away. 

But Scripture reveals a God who meets us where we are, not where we pretend to be.

No More Faking Fine is your invitation to get gut-level honest with God through the life-giving language of lament. Lament, a practice woven throughout Scripture, is a prayer that God never ignores, never silences, and never wastes. As author Esther Fleece says, “Lament is the unexpected pathway to true intimacy with God, and with those around us.”

Esther learned this the hard way, by believing she could shut down painful emotions that haunted her from a broken past she tried to forget on her fast track to success. But in silencing her pain, she robbed herself of the opportunity to be healed. Maybe you’ve done the same. 

No More Faking Fine is your permission to lament—to give voice to the hurt, frustration, and disappointment you’ve kept inside and silenced for too long. Drawing from careful biblical study and hard-won insight, Esther reveals how to use God’s own language to draw closer to Him as He leads us through any darkness into His marvelous light.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 10, 2016 – Fleece, international speaker, founder and CEO of L&L Consulting, encourages readers to lament past pain and heal through God by accepting disappointment instead of pushing negative experiences away. Her difficult childhood and young adulthood are detailed throughout the book: she suffered heart-breaking paternal neglect and abuse, as well as cruel rejection from her mother and grandmother, and she spent years evading her felonious stalker father. Fleece survived and thrived. After college, she rose through the corporate ranks at New Iron Media before leaving as a vice-president at age 25 to lead millennial outreach for Focus on the Family, a nonprofit. Although her reputation and perseverance will certainly bring readers to her story, succeeding financially or professionally is not the point of the book. Fleece is more concerned with how she "faked" her way, as she says, into her many successes. She writes of the ultimate bankruptcy of "faking fine," championing instead the value of recognizing and naming pain through the long biblical and religious tradition of lament. Passionately encouraging readers to create space for authentic self-reflection in Christian life and practice, Fleece should gain a whole new audience with this book.
