Is It Just Me? by Grace Valentine: Review & Giveaway with JustRead Publicity Tours

Is it Just Me JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Is It Just Me? by Grace Valentine, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Is It Just Me

Title: Is It Just Me?
Author: Grace Valentine
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: February 9, 2021
Genre: Christian Life/Women's Issues

An anthem for every woman who is weary of living a life in which she knows the right answers but does not believe them. 

Is It Just Me? is a book by a popular social media blogger that helps young women find true trust in Jesus when they are overwhelmed and frustrated with their lives.  

Many women joke about having trust issues—laughing at their struggle because it feels common but secretly feeling there is no hope. Grace Valentine was one of them. In her twenties she realized her trust issues were not humorous because in reality hers were trust issues with Jesus, her community, her family, and herself. And they were destroying her faith. Grace creatively told herself she was simply being realistic, but the truth was, she was entangled with doubt and lies. 

In Grace’s second book, Is It Just Me?, she offers readers a new perspective by helping them find answers to five deeply felt questions.
  • Am I the only one who is tired, overwhelmed, doubting, and fearful?
  • Am I the only one who feels hurt and lonely?
  • Am I the only one who still is struggling to find my purpose?
  • Am I the only one struggling to trust that God is there?
  • Am I the only one confused about how to be an adult?
Grace’s personal story and perceptive insights show other young women that not only are they are not alone, they can trust God in the middle of their hurts, doubts, and fears.

MY THOUGHTS.....


In her book Is It Just Me? author Grace Valentine asks if we've ever experienced doubts, fears, loneliness, and issues with trust? My answers are "Yes, I've felt these emotions" and "NO, Grace, it isn't just you!" I like that Valentine writes in an easy, conversational style and uses many of her own life experiences as illustrations.  I also appreciate that she  references Bible scripture and that she ends each chapter with Real Talk, a section of statements and questions to help increase our understanding.


Is It Just Me? may seem to target young women but I consider it a wonderful resource for all of us who've wondered what our purpose is and whether we will ever get it right. It is enlightening, encouraging, empowering, and it affirms that even when we don't get it right, it won't affect God's love for us!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book that I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
