Well, Girl: An Inside-Out Journey to Wellness by Jami Amerine


If you’re skinny, fat, short, tall, or somewhere in between. . .

If you’ve ever thought that losing weight would lead to happiness. . .
If you’ve ever avoided a mirror because you didn’t want to see your reflection. . .
If you’ve found Jesus or you’re still searching. . .
Well, Girl, You’ve Come to the Right Place.
You’ll find a sassy, funny, authentic, and encouraging friend in master word weaver Jami Amerine, as she comes alongside you to share God’s overwhelming grace and patience in an inside-out journey to wellness. She’ll introduce you to a heavenly Father who adores you, right where you are. And she’ll let you have a peek into the insane ride of her life that led her to complete freedom after years of hating herself—while she was completely and utterly adored by Jesus.
            This transformational read will set you free. Hilarious, raw, and somehow poetic, Well, Girl offers scriptural truths, honest and thought-provoking ideas about wellness, and an in-depth look at a life free from culture’s lies—with increased self-worth, better overall health, and more confidence in your physical appearance.


How many books have you read in the hopes of finally finding the ultimate way to lose weight and look better? If you're like me, you probably can't begin to name them! This book, however, is about more than outward appearances. Well, Girl inspires us to become well and fit from the inside out. Author Jami Amerine made me laugh but she also made me think as she wrote about her many struggles on her journey to wellness. Her encouragement to consider inner beauty is reinforced by Scripture that tells us of our self-worth. She is totally transparent about her own human failings and the doubts that continue to plague her but she reminds us that we can be freed from this if we have a personal relationship with Jesus.

This book is written as if Amerine is talking directly to each reader and I especially liked that she begins each chapter with Bible scripture and ends them with Well, Girl Wisdom and Freedom Gain. This is an honest, encouraging, and inspiring book and I highly recommend it!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I am a wife to Justin, and mother to Maggie, John, Luke, Sophie, Sam, and Charlie. We are on a reprieve from foster care as we recover from the removal of a long-term placement. My husband Justin and I have a ranch near our home and we love to travel and “just be.” However, we recently relocated to the North Houston.

I have a Master’s Degree in Education, Counseling, and Human Development, but don’t let that fool you, I am not sure how I pulled that off. I also have an undergraduate degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (yeah, Home Ec.). I can cook anything, but don’t ask me to sew.

I love sharing the stories that take place in these halls where I fully embrace the Lord’s presence… He wanders around, stepping in juice puddles and stepping over laundry. I love Him, but more, I like Him. I also believe the GOOD NEWS is just Jesus. I am not here to explain Him to you. He wants to know you – but that is between you and Him. I tell tales of my adventures with Him, as He is mine.
