Through His Eyes: Rethinking What You Believe about Yourself
As anyone who has ever cleaned out a closet or a basement can attest, clutter is a reality of life. And it's not just a physical reality. Our minds can become cluttered too, filled with beliefs about everything from our relationship with God to our feelings about our bodies to our housekeeping methods.
Some of these beliefs are what author Virginia H. Pearce calls "Truths with a capital T." They are eternal and will always be true, whether anyone believes them or not. The confusion in our lives comes because mixed in with those Truths are other beliefs, some of which might be useful but some of which are just plain harmful.
In this insightful new book, Sister Pearce invites us to become "inquirers after truth," to examine all of our beliefs and try our best to see them in the light of the Truths we know to be eternal. By doing so, we can discard the half-truths and lies that may be hindering our progress. Our lives can be filled with greater happiness than we ever thought possible as we learn to see them Through His Eyes.

This gentle book shows how mental awareness and divine grace can help us to clean out the destructive, underlying, hidden beliefs we may not even realize we have. Thank you, Sister Pearce. I can't wait to let my new found understanding seep into my soul! Reading this book has changed me for good and left me feeling hopeful that I may be able to flatten out some of the speed bump areas in my life. Loved it!

I don't usually add inspirational books to my home library but this one is a 'must have'. It's a unique inspirational book in that she tackles a specific human trait that holds us back; we believe and hold onto lies we tell ourselves. She offers ways to help recognize the truths and lies we've accumulated, and how to "clean out the closet" of our minds. Her approach is simplistic and inspiring. I know the cover looks a little 'girly', but I would recommend this book to everyone at all stages in life, male and female.
