Item description for Behind Those Eyes: What's Really Going on Inside the Souls of Women by Lisa Whittle...
Overview Bible study teacher and speaker Whittle looks into the various roles women play to mask their feelings of insecurity, fear, and dissatisfaction with life. She encourages women to face the reality of who they are and who God created them to be.
Meet the cast. Ms. Perfection, Ms. Confidence, Ms. Happiness, Ms. Spirituality. Do you know them? Maybe, if you're honest with yourself, you may recognize you are one of them.
Let's admit it: the stories behind our eyes often go untold. We tend to cover our insecurities and heartaches with engaging smiles, fashionable clothes, and manufactured conversations. We impersonate the women we want to be - deeply spiritual, caring, supportive, capable, put together, and ridiculously happy. We desperately want to be accepted and loved, but we're afraid to reveal our true selves to others.
In "Behind Those Eyes," Bible teacher and speaker Lisa Whittle encourages women to get real - real with ourselves, real with one another, and real before God. With humor, compassion, and biblical insight, Whittle takes a refreshingly honest look at how we often mask our fear of rejection. In this book you learn how to:
See your impersonations for what they really are
Free yourself from shallow interactions with others
Learn to choose authenticity over pretense
Practice truth as a healing agent in your relationships

The same point made over and over and over. Some of us are living without being fake, so.........................
Amazing Book - Great Bible Study Apr 19, 2008
This book was written just for me -and every other woman like me who struggles with what people think about how we look, dress, talk, act, raise our children, or keep our homes. If you don't have these struggles and you're just completely comfortable in your own skin then buy this book and give it to a friend in need.
The author does an incredible job of breaking through the facades we wrap ourselves in - Ms. Perfection, Ms. Confidence, Ms. Happiness, and Ms. Spirituality. I've played all these roles at different times and there have been times when I've played them all at the same time. I wish this book had been around then.
I love this book - Part one covers the ways we pretend. In part two the author discussed why we do it (which is very eye-opening and heart challenging) and in part three she discusses the truth of who we really are (which is such a blessing to read and more of a blessing to live!)
I hope to use this book for our next small group study (there is a wonderful Bible study guide in the back of the book). I know that women will benefit from this book -- just think about the impact if we all starting living without our masks!
