Sick of Me: from Transparency to Transformation by Whitney Capps
Sick of Me deals with the shift from focusing on the self to putting on focus on God. Whitney Capps shares the differences between the self-help culture and actual change that makes us into better people. Capps brings up the current trend of focusing on vulnerability and transparency and takes it a step beyond what we’ve currently been seeing. She talks about transformation as the goal. Taking the focus off of happiness and onto holiness.
One thing I really appreciated about this book was she brought up the kickback people get on social media when they share things. She talks about her own Facebook post and how to take the “me” out of it and focus on what’s important. She shares how we can easily feel less than another person—using examples as the put together woman or the one who already filled out her Bible study workbook or has her Bible outlined whereas someone else is wearing yesterday’s workout clothes and forgot their Bible. We’re so quick to focus on the wrong things and Capps says we should look to appreciating what each of us can do and focusing on Jesus.
This book is a very refreshing take on what we need to be focusing on.
