A Confident Heart by Renee Swope: Book Review

In the fall I had the privilege of attending a conference, where I met the author of this wonderful book, “A Confident Heart,” Renee Swope.   While the holidays knocked a bit of the reading wind out of me, I was determined to savor this book as I read, attempting to capture the depth and simplicity together.

As a long-time recovering perfectionist, my self-criticism has generally exceeded any other criticism in my life.  After many years and life circumstances, I do feel confident in my life in Christ, but I did find myself wishing that this book had been written years ago!

The back cover of this book suggest four goals in which you will find assistance:

1. Exchange fear-filled thinking with  faith-filled believing. (Who doesn’t need that?!)

2. Fail forward when life or sin sets you back.  This phrase is thought-provoking and my interpretation was simply to let your failures escalate your drive to the future.

3. Embrace your G0d-given purpose, passion, and personality.

4. See beyond who you are to who you are becoming in Christ.

The format of this book is fantastic for a book club or study group, or you can join Renee in her online teaching platform RIGHT HERE.  You can also take a look at the Facebook group for the book or join Renee on Twitter.

I highly recommend this book for women’s leadership teams or ministry leaders to work through together, joyfully accepting one another and experiencing the confidence each of us can have through Christ.

  1. Sounds good to me Rachel! I’ll take more confidence in Christ any day! I’ll check out that book! One of my old favorites is The Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer…
