Publishers Description Which Everyday Idols Are Holding You Captive?
Like most women, you probably have a life filled with modern-day "idols" that attempt to steal your attention and affection from God. Innocent-seeming idols like chocolate, thighs of iron, and a home that rivals Martha Stewart's. Things you turn to first, before turning to God, when you long for comfort, affirmation, self-worth, or love.
You know that God is the answer to all your needs. But then you have a fight with your husband, and that cheesecake in the fridge starts calling your name. You stay home from a women's retreat because your wardrobe is (literally) from the last century. You desperately wish that your house or hair or kids were as nice as your friend's (or anybody else's).
"Move over, Victoria--I Know the Real Secret! moved me! It moved me to laughter, insight, and ownership. Identification (and I certainly i.d. with Nancy) is a safe way to 'fess up to our humanity, allowing us to draw closer to God's divinity. Move over, girlfriends, because here comes Nancy Kennedy, a wacky and winsome woman!" -- Patsy Clairmont, author of Stardust on my Pillow: Stories to Sleep On (and lots of others!)

Most helpful, honest book I've read in a long time Jul 7, 2004
This book was great! It was honest, pointed and exactly what I needed to hear! I read it last year, and was so excited i wrote to the author, Nancy Kennedy. (I've NEVER written to an author or anything before!) She wrote back to me! How exciting to a 26 year old new SAHM with cabin fever! : ) I've used her note as a bookmark since I received it. I'm on my 4th read thru; sometimes I just skip to the chapter I need to read at that time. If you are thinking of reading this book- do it!
Funny, scriptural, and SO meaningful Jul 25, 2003
Nancy Kennedy teaches with simple stories that have BIG meanings. (Hmmm...reminds me of another teacher...) I was attracted by the humor of this book and was held by its truth--which is repeatedly confirmed in the many, many scriptural references. I'm sharing this book (and her others) with my friends who are enjoying Mrs. Kennedy's writing as much as I do.
Sorry I bought this book Sep 7, 2001
What a cute title! What a terrible book. I couldn't finish it, I felt embarrassed for Nancy Kennedy. She seems like a very nice person but holy cow! What a warped place this would be if all women believed as she does. God bless her!
