Killing Wonder Woman TLC Book Tour

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis: POW! BLAM! OOF!
Working women of faith are subjected to daily blows of lies and deception. We are barraged with messages that we’re not good enough, smart enough, thin enough, spiritual enough. We believe that our professions mean very little in the eyes of God. We’re feeling tired and discouraged from holding ourselves to impossible standards. These damaging lies and labels now have a name: Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman is a symbol of the unobtainable. She is a blend of all the women both real and fictional–that we idolize. She is the whispers of doubt and negative self-talk that run rampantly through our minds. It’s time to stop listening. It’s time to slay Wonder Woman!
Killing Wonder Woman is more than a book. It’s a long-overdue weapon that we, as working women of faith, can yield to cut down burnout, destroy discouragement, and set ourselves free of unrealistic expectations. Once we break loose of Wonder Woman’s deception, we can open ourselves more fully to trust God’s plan and integrate Him into all aspects of our lives, including in our workplace calling.
Are you ready to win at work and soar in faith? This is your call to arms.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Killing Wonder Woman, Setting Weary Women Free to Win at Work and Soar in Faith is a good read and you have to be open to the message(s).  It is packed of great thoughts, advice and quotes.  

One of my favorite quotes is, "We were never meant for perfection on this side of heaven."  This one simple statement spoke volumes to me,  even though I am always trying to be perfect everywhere in my is okay that I am not perfect!    

Another area that connected with me was being the best employee ever.  Activity, Attitude and Awareness will help you be the best employee you can be ever day.  You can also adopt a "student attitude" in the workplace, show up on time, let others know you care, do your best every day, and you will have great successes and make great mistakes and be humble in both.  These are great concepts to keep in mind every day.  

There were several other areas throughout the book that I enjoyed and resonated with me and where I am in my life.  I believe Killing Wonder Woman would be a great book for any woman to read.  I especially think it would be a great book to be read and discussed at all different kinds of women' s interest group meetings at a church.  I know my church has several different groups that would enjoy Killing Wonder Women.
