In a sideways-glancing, elbow-jamming, status-grasping culture, Comparison Girl supplies an upside-down approach to an age-old problem."--KATIE M. REID, author of Made Like Martha
Do you constantly compare yourself with others? On social media, in your neighborhood, at church, or in the school drop-off lane, do you push yourself to prove that you measure up . . . and then feel ashamed when you don’t? Measuring yourself against others isn’t healthy. And it isn’t God’s plan. In fact, the way of Jesus is completely upside down from this measure-up world. He invites us to follow him and be restored to freedom, confidence, and joy.
Join Shannon Popkin as she shares what she has discovered about her own measure-up fears and get-ahead pride. With her trademark humor and straightforward honesty, she’s created this six-week Bible study to explore the conversations Jesus had and the stories he shared with people who--like us--were comparing themselves.
Leave measure-up comparison behind and connect with those around you by choosing Jesus's me-free way of living: lifting others up and pouring yourself out!
Reviewer: Kandace Perry
Comparison Girl is a wonderfully relatable devotional for women. Shannon has a beautiful way of weaving personal experiences and normal real-life scenarios with scripture; showing us how God's Word is relevant today.
Comparison Girl reaches into our spirit and reminds us to turn our focus away from others (what they are doing/accomplishing and how we measure up to them) and turn eyes our toward the Lord....and in doing so our lives will be transformed.
