Book Description

In Discovering Your True Worth, Van Namee, a longtime pastor and author of Seeing Through the Eyes of Heaven, maintains that self-worth—which Van Namee defines as one’s personal sense of worth based mostly on what others think—is both a false and harmful concept that can lead to a lack of fulfillment, frustration, and even destruction.  To present a means of discovering real worth, Van Namee created Discovering True Worth, an enlightening guide that takes readers on a journey towards finding true worth, an enhanced personal identity, growth, and healing.

Grounded in Biblical wisdom and centered on Christ, Discovering Your True Worth explains how to shift one’s mindset to replace self-worth with God-worth, or true worth.  Through powerful personal testimony, anecdotes, examples, and Scripture, Van Namee shows how true worth, a worth based on God’s infinite love for us through Jesus Christ, can help us find joy, security and certainty in an uncertain world.

In this eye-opening, engaging, and thought-provoking new book, Rev. Dr. Gordon Van Namee leads readers on a path of personal renewal, reconstruction, and discovery based on the Principle of True Worth.  Discovering Your True Worth also includes exercises encouraging readers to actively participate throughout, including “Moments of Reflection,”

“Intentional Action” and sections for journaling thoughts and ideas related to the book’s passages.

An incredible book that presents a life-changing truth, Discovering Your True Worth is powerful, transformative, inspiring and uplifting. Resplendent with wisdom, sage counsel, and Scripture, Discovering Your True Worth is a road map for a journey like no other.  Discover the wellspring of strength that comes from a life centered on Christ; find out who you really are; awaken to new possibilities; find true joy, fulfillment, and happiness; and recognize the power, depth, and comfort of God’s love.

My Review

No matter where you are in your walk with Christ, there is always more to learn and to understand. A good book is always thought provoking and engaging. For these reasons I enjoyed delving into Discovering Your True Worth by Dr. Gordon Van Namee.

In Discovering Your True Worth, Van Namee examines the idea of self worth being both destructive and harmful. Often in today's contemporary world, people base their self worth upon what others think of them. This only leads to a serious lack of fulfillment in one's life. Instead, Van Namee encourages the reader to find one's worth through the eye of God instead of through people.

While this is not a new concept, it is important to be reminded of this from time to time. That is why Van Namee's Discovering Your True Worth is a valuable read. True Worth equals God's Worth. The book is well laid out and easy to read. It is a self study with room to write your notes as you complete each chapter. Get ready to release your life to Jesus as you read through each chapter of Discovering Your True Worth. The book relies on scripture and Van Namee's personal testimony to get its point across.

Discovering Your True Worth is an easy to read and thought-provoking self study.
