About

Say goodbye to insecurity. It's time to change how we think about ourselves.

We have more ways than ever to compare ourselves to others--who are all prettier, thinner, smarter, more successful, and more put together than we are--and our sense of self-worth takes a serious beating on an almost daily basis. It's not what God wants for us, and it's not what we want for ourselves. So why is it so hard to stop?

Drawing from her twenty years of experience counseling women, professional Christian counselor Donna Gibbs says enough is enough. In this practical book, she exposes the vulnerabilities and lies that produce insecurities in us starting from a young age, explores the result of letting those insecurities get the best of us, and, most importantly, shows us the way out of insecurity--for good.


"Comparison is a trap ensnaring many women. Donna Gibbs is a Christian counselor who understands this devastating struggle, and in her excellent book she offers encouraging, practical, biblical guidance to help readers find their way back to peace, wholeness, and security as women made in God's image."--Dr. Greg Smalley, vice president, Marriage and Family Formation, Focus on the Family

"Love this book! I'm in a very competitive environment where looks and comparisons play a huge role in being successful and 'making it,' causing us to see ourselves in a way God never intended. It's easy to get held back by insecurities, anxiety, and fear. Donna gives us real, practical tools to help us not let 'the thief' steal our joy of who God created each of us to be."--Meghan Woods, Nashville recording artist

Endorsements

"Through my years of counseling, I've discovered that comparison is a trap ensnaring many women. Social media only reinforces the idea that 'other wives' or 'other moms' are smarter, prettier, happier, and more accomplished. Donna Gibbs is a Christian counselor who understands this devastating struggle, and in her excellent book she offers encouraging, practical, biblical guidance to help readers find their way back to peace, wholeness, and security as women made in God's image."

"Insecurity keeps many women from reaching their potential. In her counseling ministry, Donna Gibbs has helped many women find freedom to explore the future unafraid. Now, in this book, she shares those insights in a practical, readable format. All readers will profit from these insights."

Gary D. Chapman, PhD, author of The Five Love Languages

"God uses Donna in this book to unpack, clarify, and provide a pathway for healing one of the most important considerations of who we are as humans--our identity."

Kevin Wimbish, MS, LMFT; licensed marriage and family therapist; director, Family Life Coach

"Silencing Insecurity beautifully and poignantly touches on the many aspects of life that plague women in America. The comparisons, the struggles, the falling short, and the unrealistic expectations paralyze and restrict women as they mature in this competitive social-media era. Donna Gibbs, a therapist with much wisdom and the experience of thousands of hours of counseling, has had a bird's-eye view of clients' hearts and struggles. She pushes in probing the effects of the difficult hurts and wounds so many endure. But she provides hope as well! As a Christian counselor for thirty years myself, I know there is sacredness in hearing of the inner workings of people's lives and relationships. We're all struggling. Silencing Insecurity does a superb job of hitting the panoply of issues that plague us all."

Dee Jones Adams, PhD, Certified EFT Therapist, director of Baton Rouge Christian Counseling Center
