by Sandy Kirby Quandt
In Donna Gibbs’ book, Silencing Insecurity, she exposes the thieves of our identity, uncovers the problems those thieves leave behind, and looks at the messes individuals in Scripture found themselves in because of identity theft.
As a licensed Christian counselor, Donna wrote Silencing Insecurity from that point of view. It is not a quick or easy read you can skim over and expect to understand. It is a book that needs to be read thoughtfully to obtain the encouragement and guidance each page holds. Because psychology is an interest of mine, this was not a problem for me. For others, it might be.
The first part of the book covers typical things that impact our sense of identity and looks at how Satan works hard to steal from us.
The second section explores how false beliefs create unnecessary challenges regarding our mind, emotions, and relationships, as well as spirituality and life development.
The final section centers on the Audience of One – God. It shows why he is worthy of our dependence and is the one who defines our identity.
Each chapter contains a set of questions at the end for personal reflection and application. Like I mentioned earlier, if you are serious about working through issues which push you toward feelings of insecurity, you shouldn’t rush through these.
The appendix contains four pages of Scripture Truths for a Secure Identity for when you experience rejection, feel unworthy or not good enough, feel shame or regret your past, feel all alone, are overwhelmed, feel broken, fear the future, or when you need to be reminded you are free.
