The Relief of Imperfection
"Dear Lord, I pray that all limitations, weaknesses, defects, pain, hurt, mistakes, embarrassment, and imperfection in my personal and public life, relationships and circumstances be eliminated." This book is for any woman who has ever prayed this prayer or for the one who has even thought it. Joan Webb, a self-proclaimed recovering perfectionist, knows how hard it is for determined and caring women to step into the relief of imperfection. And yet, this is exactly what God wants for us.
The Relief of Imperfection encourages the reader to believe the truth about God, others, herself, and her reality, thus eventually releasing her from the pursuit of perfection to relax in the relief of imperfection. Webb provides real-life stories, including how Jesus lived in the midst of imperfect surroundings, to show that it is okay with God to cease trying to appear perfect and have all the right answers all the time. Readers will find permission to stop pretending and start enjoying authentic, intimate relationships with others, with themselves, and with God.
It's a Wonderful (Imperfect) Life
It's a Wonderful (Imperfect) Life is a collection of daily reminders that God does not want women to live in a continually overwhelmed state. Instead, he wants them to live balanced lives and to enjoy their relationships with family, friends, and him. Life coach Joan C. Webb, author of The Relief of Imperfection, offers good news to readers who try too hard to make everything just right: Imperfect is just right! In her conversational, confessional style, Joan shares war stories from her own fight against perfectionism and invites readers to do battle with her. Armed with humor, grace, and helpful coaching exercises, she delivers three minutes a day that will start women on an adventure of just-right, relief-filled imperfection.
Meditations for Christians Who Try to Be Perfect
In 365 meditations, Webb, who struggled for years to serve God by being the perfect businesswoman, wife, mother, Bible teacher, and friend, shares the wisdom she gained by looking at the Bible again to see what it really says. Suggested Bible readings, key scriptural phrases, and encouraging thoughts will help readers achieve balance.
