“I’m inviting you into the confidence conversation. It’s time to stop being unhappy with yourself. You can choose to stop second-guessing all of your decisions and commitment and wondering whether your life would be better if only you had chosen differently. I invite you to be present where you are—where God is!—and to embrace your life and live out your God-given gift of confidence.
Come join me in the pages, my friend. Let’s talk about who you are. Let’s hold hands and run hard into the glorious mess of it all. I don’t know what challenges wait for you, but this I know for sure: You Can Do This.”
When you’ve finished reading this book, I hope you’ll think, “This book made me think and laugh, and now I feel like I can do this next thing in front of me.” I hope you’ll feel hope, courage, strength, encouragement, presence, freedom, and confidence to move forward into your life with the awareness that you were born for this. I hope, girl to girl and eye to eye, we can remember that we are called to claim complete confidence.
Finding your confidence is a miracle. I know this, because I found mine. And when I looked hard at the woman I’ve become, when I finally recognized the courageous warrior hidden in this frame, I was surprised by joy and astonished by awe. I want the same awareness for you.

If you have ever had an experience where you were going through something pretty rough in your personal life and a book came along and pulled you to read it then you will understand my response to this book. It has become an absolute comfort, inspiration and medium for God’s healing to take place.
Tricia Lott Williford writes with authority, clarity and compassion. The reader feels very much like she is coming along on the journey as well, offering encouragement and love to aid the healing process. Tricia, a remarried widow, has three books to her name (I want them all!), she’s an author, teacher, reader and thinker. She has two beautiful boys who she describes lovingly in her book. Her struggles as a single mum and her dependence on God’s help to get her through the aftermath of her first husband’s death is dealt with honestly and candidly. I felt I could relate to what she was describing, especially in how we perceive and compare ourselves, so much that I felt like it was written purely for my benefit. Whilst this book was written with women in mind, I honestly feel that there are many men who would also benefit from its contents.
The book is designed so that the reader can interact with it. Its format consists of a chapter focussing on a particular area in which Tricia speaks of her own experience, and the way she worked through it, followed by a section called Stepping Forward, where she provides an opportunity for people to self-reflect and come up with some solutions to areas that they wish to tackle. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
