“Before you find your soul mate, you must first discover your soul.” – Charles F. Glassman
Author Shawn Crenshaw’s book ‘Embrace the Real You’ challenges you to throw away the masks that hide your true identity from the world. Each one of us is born unique and different from one another but somewhere along we grow up hiding behind other people’s identity, remaining ignorant about our true purpose in this world. Crenshaw not only identifies the various false masks we wear but also help in ripping them off our faces by tapping into the Word of God and enlightening us on the path He has chosen for all of us. Readers can follow these simple steps to get back on their preordained paths and live the life they were destined to live.
This book will ask its readers about the various masks their wear in their daily life, the actions they choose to take and question if it’s benefiting them or others in the end. Bringing the spiritual discourse back into our everyday lives, Crenshaw encourages us to acknowledge our true authentic self. Written in a straight-forward manner and in an easy to understand language, the author explains using the help of various real life examples, metaphors and biblical stories to unmask our fears and let the shining true self out, as God himself would have wanted. Even though it’s a short read, this little dynamite is packed with more wisdom and insight than other books in this genre.
I will say this book has come out at a timely juncture too because when you look around, you feel there are far too many people living their lives without any purpose, a life full of regrets, worry, mediocrity and anxiety. Seeking solace in the scriptures or believing in a higher power through this book will calm these minds down and set them on the path to attain peace and contentment.
Embrace the Real You has short chapters that get to the point without dilly-dallying around the subject. Every chapter also ends with a finely summarized paragraph that condenses the various important points presented in the chapter. The carefully selected inspirational quotes at the beginning of each chapter also set the perfect mood for the rest of the messages. Crenshaw has a strong, confident voice that is very sure about what it has to say. You get the feeling that the author is speaking about these points from experience itself. The author’s personal stories shared in the end in the testimony section are not only heart warming but further propel the author’s claims that God has in store a life plan for all of us.
It doesn’t matter where you are in life and what you’ve been doing till now, everyone should read this book to identify and celebrate the real you. Shawn Crenshaw’s simple and yet effective message inspires you to live your true life, the one that you truly deserve.
