Review: Why I Hate Green Beans by Lincee Ray

From the Back of the Book

Insecurity. As women, we all struggle with it.

Our skinny jeans mock us. Our age-defying serums with flecks of gold refuse to erase our crow's feet. Our social media feeds taunt us with everyone else's picture-perfect lives. If you've ever felt uninteresting, unlovable, or unattractive, you're ready for Lincee Ray's particular brand of hilarious (and hard-hitting) self-reflection.

Like a trustworthy friend, she shows us that the fastest way to happiness is to embrace ourselves in all our imperfection and trust that God knew what He was doing when He made us. From maneuvering the muffin top to navigating the sketchy waters of singleness to walking the judgmental halls of the workplace, Lincee's laugh-out-loud look at real life reveals many of the key truths she's learned about her identity:

Yoga pants are your friend, Jesus sees you, and green-bean diets are never the answer.

Happy First Line Friday! How was your Valentine's week? I was single for so long that I still think of it as a day to celebrate friendship rather than the romantic holiday that it's supposed to be. I enjoy sending cards to friends. I also love all the hearts and pink! 💗
