Starving The Fairytale with Emily Copeland
Women are fed messages around self-care and self-love at every turn. While self-care IS important, it's definition is too. It easily becomes a slippery slope for women to fall into a cycle of self-discovery, self-love, self-acceptance, self-reliance and ultimately self as God. Emily Copeland has just released a book, Starving The Fairytale, that dives deep into these themes and how they are causing destruction, even for Christian women. The messages of "own your truth", "follow your heart", "do more of what makes you happy", and "be true to yourself" might sound good on the surface, but ultimately, lead us away from God. Emily offers a refreshing and deep perspective on this spiral and how women can instead lean in on the Source of our worth in Jesus.
