20 Dec Join An Imperfect Woman Launch Team!
See that brave little girl up there? She’s who I want to be when I grow up! Can’t you just feel her courage and strength?
Or is it naiveté?
Maybe. But maybe not.
Maybe she’s still in touch with who she was created to be. Unscathed by the harsh realities life has yet to throw her way, she’s acutely aware of her power.
She isn’t perfect. You don’t need to be when you’re Supergirl. She’s been loved well, and it’s made her invincible.
Like I said, she’s my hero, and today she’s my inspiration for some brave steps of my own!
My first book, An Imperfect Woman: Letting Go of the Need to Have It All Together, releases February 6, 2018, just a few weeks on the other side of this wonderful, busy Christmas season!
And I want to invite you to join my launch team!
But first, let me introduce you . . .
About the book
Women are bombarded with ideas of perfection–and tips for how to achieve it–every day. From her work to her looks to her parenting, today’s modern woman is expected to strive to be picture perfect in every way. As a result, calls for authenticity and imperfection are on the rise. Yet, deep down, most of us still want to achieve perfection. Why?
The desire to be perfect, says Kim Hyland, is actually a God-given urge. After all, we were made for Eden. But there is a difference between perfection and perfectionism, which is our attempt to achieve perfection on our own, by our own strength, and for our own purposes–the original temptation in the Garden. In this freeing book, Hyland offers women a stirring manifesto for acknowledging their limitations and embracing the perfection of God through his grace. This is a book for every woman who gives 110% and yet feels shame when one little thing goes wrong.
What people are saying
“As someone who has struggled with perfectionism and anxiety for most of my life, Kim Hyland’s words are life and breath and freedom to me. This is a message every woman needs to hear–not just once but many times.”–Holley Gerth, bestselling author of You’re Already Amazing
“Kim Hyland [invites] us to not only acknowledge our imperfections but also take them to a perfect Christ and be made whole again. An Imperfect Woman will woo you into the heart of a most loving Savior, and your life will never be the same.”–Emily T. Wierenga, author of Atlas Girl and founder of The Lulu Tree
“Like a well-trusted friend, Kim Hyland gets to the heart of the matter with grace and wisdom. With winsome stories and gospel-centered truth, Hyland’s An Imperfect Woman is just the tome we need to kick perfectionism to the curb.”–Kristin Schell, recovering perfectionist and author of The Turquoise Table
