Get Real, by Jamy Whitaker, focuses on how we can take off the mask and show everyone who we really are.

Whitaker has divided the book into three parts; “Identify,” Insecurities,” and “Perspective.”  In these sections she discusses who we are and how to discover it, how to get rid of our insecurities, and how to be the best that we can be for God.

The masks can come off and we can live a productive life centered on God.

About the Author:

Jamy Whitaker currently lives in Indiana with her husband and five children.  She has an English degree from Indiana State University.



My thoughts: Get Real, by Jamy Whitaker had a lot of good information and showed me that sometimes I do put on a mask to show that everything is o.k., when it is not.

I liked how the book was divided into three different parts, so that later I can go back and read the section where I feel I need to reveal more of myself.  I found the end of chapter questions very helpful.  I just wish that they had been placed at the end of the chapters and not at the end of the book.  I do not like flipping back and forth.

I really liked the focus on going deeper into the Bible to study it and then share what we have learned.

My favorite part was on page thirty-five about forgiveness.  Psalm 103:12 says that God forgives and forgets.  As humans we need to remember to do that too.

I recommend this book to all.  We need to stop hiding.
