Author and motivational spiritual Â speaker Janet Davis has an uplifting style of writing.Â Her third book, "My Own Worst Enemy how to stop holding yourself back" is written for women.Â It is filled with storiesÂ about real people and how they have unconsciously hold themselves back from reaching their full potential.Â The author reveals a lot of theÂ mistakes she has made in her life and how learning from them haveÂ helped her to become stronger.Â Â The author added these analogies to give the reader a better understanding of just how destructive this behaviour can be and how to see it inÂ their own lives.
The analogies often appear in the book at rather odd places.Â This can confuse the reader but if they continue reading, the message will be evident within a few pages.Â
Each chapter has a study guide complete with questions for the reader to self-evaluate themselves.
The forward to this book is written by Anita Lustrea, host of Moody Radio's Midday Connection.Â
This is one of those books that will prompt the reader to have thoughts and ideas while reading it.Â I suggest the reader have a journal or tablet of paper to write those notes on so they are not forgotten.
I give this book a FOUR START rating and recommend it to all Spiritual women who are searching to become better women.Â This book will give female readers a lot to think about.Â I only give it a four star rating because of the lack of preparation given to the reader before the analogies are given.Â
