ABOUT THE BOOK


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.

EXCERPT

If you’re anything like me, you say yes without thinking, and then you find yourself in over your head. Life keeps moving faster, and some mornings you wonder if there ever will be an eye cream good enough to hide your bags. I get it. However, Jesus never asked you to be busy.

Don’t let your plans distract you from God’s purpose for you. There’s nothing wrong with keeping a calendar. There’s nothing wrong with having plans. But a crucial question to ask yourself is, “Am I pursing my plans or His purpose?”

Focusing on our will often distracts us from God’s will. Too often, our will is to be busy, be productive, and achieve success by the world’s standards. But God’s will is for us to sit at His feet, focus on Him, and pursue our relationship with Him. We will never know why we were created if we don’t know our Creator and Savior.
