Do you suffer from the disease to please?
Are you miserable and overwhelmed because you’re afraid to
say “no” to others?
If you feel like you are running around making everyone else happy while you are withering inside – this may be just the book for you!
Authors Paul Coughlin and Jennifer D. Degler, address these issues and more in their book, No More Christian Nice Girl. If you’re not quite sure what a Christian Nice Girl is, there’s a self-evaluation in the beginning of the book that will help you decide if you’re a member of this “sorority”. (I've also posted a link down below, where you can take the self evaluation online.)
Readers will learn the differences between peace making and peace faking, and what appears to be nice, Christian behavior may actually be sinful and detrimental. After reading this book, you’ll have the courage to trade in your cowardly demeanor for that of a courageous Christian woman and feel completely liberated from the self-induced bondage of people pleasing.
One of my favorite sections in this book was the “you teach people how to treat you” portion in the chapter about family and friendships. Healthy boundaries are critical to being an emotionally healthy individual and there is a ton of great insight in this book, about how to set and keep those boundaries.
