Often we will read a book and be impressed, or possibly motivated with one or two ideas the author presents. I have found reading Danielle Bernock's book is be a game changer. With chapters dealing with scarcity mindset, or negative thoughts which keep us negative thinkers, she had me. I loved her line, "When our past, or our circumstances, are out source, we'll come up short. But if we'll let God be our source, the possibilities are endless." And another line I must share is, "How we own our mindset will bring abundance or scarcity."
Not only does the author share stories of ten others, which are sure to motivate and inspire, but she opens her own heart inviting readers inside. Sharing personal stories of struggle and how she was able to get through them. A broken relationship which was restored, a reconciliation God brought about. And if you desire to change some of your faulty thinking, look no further. I love how clearly Danielle explains just why we DO matter. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
Danielle's book is a compelling read and I couldn't put it down. She not only takes you on a journey through practical ways to overcome the tough stuff, she walks it with you. She not only tells you how you can live an abundant life, she shows you how. Through biblical truth, personal stories, and God's divine inspiration, you'll find out who you are, why you're here, and how your mindset can be reset so you can live your life well. Not just well, victoriously well.
Danielle's book is one that I would definitely recommend! Besides telling you about the tough circumstances that she went through, she also 'walks the talk' and goes through the journey with you for your situation, an aspect not often seen in other books of the same genre. Her application of Biblical truth and Scripture brings you to the Creator who has always been there for us and has always loved us and is always there for us - the understanding that He has our back is so crucial and is a major underpinning of the book! The great takeaway is that your circumstances do not define you. You can change your mindset so that you can live your life well for God's glory. Victoriously well at all times!
I’m about 1/2 way through the audiobook (great voice!) and felt compelled to write a review so this may help someone considering buying. I highly recommend it. It is engaging, easy to read, understand, comprehend and relate. I felt close the the author and like she wrote this for me which made me feel not alone. While the audiobook is great, my next step is to read the text, highlight and journal. Being a follower of Christ, I love the references to scripture. However, it is an inclusive book, so if Christianity doesn’t align with your beliefs, scripture is easy to skim past without changing context or value.
The author and people featured are very admirable for what they’ve overcome. I thank them for sharing their inspiring stories of discovery and healing.
As I read Because You Matter by Danielle Bernock I found myself looking at my problems with new eyes. I felt the words written hit home with me and felt honesty and vulnerability throughout the book. I think God is using Danielle Bernock to help others heal. This book encouraged me to see my life I can take ownership of.
I can’t help but feel grateful to Danielle for her new book.
As a follow on from ‘Emerging with Wings’, ‘Because You Matter’ has taken me deeper into recognising the areas where traumas of life break down our ability to be present, connected and interactive in our day to day life and relationships.
Taking steps toward building an authentic life requires acknowledging our self life and owning it as a gift and a responsibility. Danielle navigates through the areas of the self life that we shut down or hide from, encouraging us to step out and be present. She brings back to light both intrinsic worth and the great weightiness of human existence.
People matter and society many times can lose perspective. A very timely work that I believe enables us to draw closer to the true source of Love. Danielle brings insightful wisdom and clarity to the process of becoming whole.
‘Because You Matter’ sets the foundation for changing the landscape of our lives taking us from brokenness to beauty. It truly reaches into the heart of ‘our’ value. Vivien
Danielle Bernock has given us the perfect way to choose ownership of our lives. She provides definitions to decide what you want, helps you determine what needs to be left behind, and supports us with quotes that inspire to move us forward and give us strength to reach for what we truly desire. Because everyone is different, the stories she includes are from real people who have challenged themselves to take ownership and changed their lives . The brave people who present their stories breathe hope and courage into us all because of the truth they speak. My favorite part of this book is that I can return to it again and again. Because I matter, I can change as much as I want and know there will be more good things for me to grow and learn from each time I pick it up.
This book will be very helpful for those who are looking for ways to identify with their inner self. I found the summaries at the end of each chapter very helpful for a review and the short story of people at the end of each chapter reviewing the subject that was covered and how that piece of life was addressed. Easy to read. Thought provoking. Would be good in a group study or perhaps as a bible study at a church.
I loved how God was a constant go-to. I found Because You Matter to be a very uplifting and motivating book. If you've suffered any kind of trauma I'm sure you'll be able to find comfort within the bounds of this book. You leave feeling hopeful and stronger with love in your heart.
