Women today feel a constant pressure to improve themselves and just never feel like they’re “enough.” All too often, they live their daily lives disheartened, disillusioned, and disappointed. That’s because joy doesn’t come from a new self-improvement strategy; it comes from rooting their identity in who God says they are and what he has done on their behalf.

This book calls women to look away from themselves in order to find the abundant life God offers them—contrasting the cultural emphasis on personal improvement and empowerment with what the Scriptures say about a life rooted, built up, and established in the gospel.

Conclusion 

“Lord knows that we have more than enough books about ourselves and never enough books about the God that created us. It isn’t until we see him that we can then make sense of ourselves. I believe Jen Oshman’s book accomplishes that by widening our vision and helping us fall in love with seeing God again.”
Jackie Hill Perry, poet; author; hip-hop artist

“Countless voices are telling women, ‘Believe in yourself . . . reach your potential . . . find your purpose . . . fulfill your destiny.’ But Enough about Me has a very different message, a message that is not only countercultural but also runs counter to today’s Christian culture: your life is not ultimately or most profoundly about you, but about the one who has made you his own. This is the kind of good news women really need.”
Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author, Even Better than Eden: Nine Ways the Bible’s Story Changes Everything about Your Story

“The siren call of self promises much but provides little. While the world tells us to want more, do more, and be more, Jen Oshman turns our eyes from ourselves and helps us to find our lives in Jesus, the giver of every good and perfect gift. Written with warmth and wisdom, Enough about Me is an encouragement to something better, something richer, and something true.”
Melissa B. Kruger, Director of Women’s Initiatives, The Gospel Coalition; author, Growing Together

“For many years now I have benefited from Jen Oshman’s writing. I’m delighted that she has broadened her repertoire to include this book. In an age obsessed with self, its message is delightfully countercultural and desperately needed.”
