Comparison brings out our competitive streak, which eats away at our contentment, which then starts to destroy our confidence, until we’re fighting to keep up with an unrealistic standard.
Why Her? Not only is this the title of Nicki Koziarz’s new book, it’s also a question we ask, consciously or subconsciously, when things don’t appear to be going our way. Meanwhile, others around us seem to be having all the success.
In her new book, Nicki uses the account of Rachel and Leah to bring insight into how the comparison trap clouds the truth and steals our joy and contentment. Each chapter addresses a different “Why Her?” scenario and clarifies the truth of the situation. At the conclusion of each chapter Nicki poses a poignant question to take us deeper into our journey of self- reflection and healing.
What I Liked
Some of my favorite chapters in Why Her? include statements about how “you don’t always have to be okay”, and “sometimes you didn’t do anything wrong”. No matter what stage of life you are in, I believe there are truths in this book for most women. We no longer need to be stuck in the comparison trap. It’s time to step out and embrace the realities of our situations and the success of others.
Why Her? Would make a great gift for any mom on your Mother’s Day list this week. In addition, the book would make a great small group study. Also, as with the last book that I reviewed here, I would recommend this for the young ladies in your life.
