    The author makes a few good points, but overall she definitely did NOT endear herself to me. She comes across as a little arrogant and smug at times. I did LOVE that she mentioned Francis Chan's white-rope-with-small-red-section illustration which represents our eternal life. I did NOT love that she quoted Jen Hatmaker. She didn't say anything remarkable or original, in my opinion. I read this for my Bible study. Highly doubtful I would have picked it up otherwise, or even known it existed.

    Not all women have the issues she described. I thought she was a little arrogant at times. After I would never recommend her as a therapist.

    IF you are a bit of a control freak (maybe like me) this is a great read. There are other “issues” addressed and I thought it was gentle and very applicable to working to live a Christ centered life. “Greater is the God living inside of us, than he who is living in the world” basically.

    I immediately connected with Nicole! I love how honest she is in She's Got Issues: Seriously Good News for Stressed-Out, Secretly Scared Control Freaks Like Us. She used herself frequently as a negative example. One of the biggest turn-offs for me is when an author only uses themselves as a positive example, trying to hold themselves up as a perfect image. None of us are perfect. I'm about as far from perfect as a person can get, so I don't like reading about people who think they've made it the I immediately connected with Nicole!

I'm about as far from perfect as a person can get, so I don't like reading about people who think they've made it there without me. ;) "Finally I stole away for sixty seconds of luxurious "me" time: just enough to hurriedly brush my teeth in peace. But as all mothers know, the click of the bathroom lock is the signal for a code-red emergency to break out. On this morning, it was my daughter's unsuccessful search for a pair of matching socks. 'Mama, I need socks!' 'Mommy, I can't find my purple and white socks. Mommy!' 'MOMMY, I need help! MOMMY, where are you? MOMMY!' 'MOMMMMMYYYY!!!" I spit into the sink and screamed so loud that my voice scratched as if it were coming from a blown speaker. 'BEEEEEeeeeeeee PAaaaaaaTIENT!!!!' At that moment, I caught a panoramic view of myself in the triple bathroom mirrors. With toothpaste on my lip, hair scrambled on top of my head, and a wild look in my eye, I screamed 'Be patient!' like a woman possessed. The mirrors captured the irony of my statement in triplicate. I began to wonder how my own issues were becoming my kids' issues. Ouch." Come on. Who doesn't relate to that?! Nicole touches on issues in our lives that are sort of shoved to the back burner. We don't take them as serious issues, because we've simply accepted them as a normal part of our lives. She's Got Issues tackles our issues of comparisons, anger, fear, control, unforgiveness, and insecurity. I struggle with ALL of those, some more than others! "There is a stubborn streak in me that wants to set my world in motion all by myself, that believes I truly know what is best for myself. It is the part of me that wants the world to rotate around me-my needs, my whims, my desires. This force has been kicking in me since I was born. And it's not dead yet." I can't even tell you how much I needed this book! *IF* I were a hugging person, I'd give Nicole a giant hug for writing it. ;) The chapter on fear has made a HUGE impact on me. So much so, that I have a completely different post planned for that subject. I think you can tell that I HIGHLY recommend She's Got Issues. HIGHLY(!!!!) But, I'm going to give some of you a couple of "warnings". One, there's a somewhat positive reference to "The Shack". I despise that book with every fiber of my being! I know some of you feel the same way as me about that. It's only one little sentence, though. I've made notes about my dislike of the book(in my book) in case anybody else ever sees it. Two, this book was definitely written for the "modern" woman. I don't consider myself one of them, but it didn't bother me at all. There's song lyrics from popular artists, references to modern day television shows I don't watch, and there's even a smartphone scan thingy at the end of each chapter. I don't have a smartphone, nor do I have any intentions at the moment of getting one, so I had to laugh a bit when I saw it at the end of the first chapter. It made me realize how behind the times I really am. I'm okay with that, though. Again, all that stuff didn't bother me a bit, but I know it might for some of you. I think this book is awesome for ANY woman. Period. (teenagers, unmarried women, married women, mothers, elderly, EVERYONE) But, I think it pretty awesome for social phobia sufferers, as a bit more specific. The comparisons, fear, anxiety....it comes with the territory. So while I recommend it to all women, I definitely recommend if you have social phobia to pick it up! *A HUGE thank you to Tyndale for my review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

    What a succinct way to help Christians women of all ages and maturity learn that they can meet any of the "do not open" rooms in their lives. Confront them honestly and feel healing gracefully.. experiencing true freedom in Christ; opening one up too love self and others better! Hoping every one who wants to learn to become a more REAL Christian reads this.. better than Rachel Hollis' Girl Wash Your Face, I believe.

    SO many dimensions to our issues, she made me realize I had more than I thought but also that so many other women do, too! I am thankful that I read this book, will keep it for future reference as well!

I've always known that I've had a bit of a control problem (and perhaps a few other issues), but didn't realize the cause and effect of them (and all the side effects). This book helped me pinpoint the "why" behind those issues and what I could do about them. Recognizing our problems(s) is always the first step in the right direction! Chapter 1, "Cheap Plastic Souls", got right down to the heart of the matter. I learned to identify my key issues and what was holding me back and controlling me: mainly fear, control and a bit of anger. The more I dove into the book, the more aware I became of how commonplace my issues really are. I also realized that some of my issues are deep-rooted and have seemingly always existed and have become a part of my personality to a degree.It became apparent that all women have issues. Some are just more "hidden" than others or not as noticeable. Whatever the case, We all have to recognize our need for Christ and see how His power can transform our every day weaknesses. This book will take you on a spiritual and emotional journey. Be prepared to be vulnerable so that you can be humbled and changed by the Lord. You can go from "control freak" to living a free, surrendered abundant life! :) Jesus doesn't just work despite our issues or around our issues. He wants to work through our issues and mold us to be more like Him in the process. This is called sanctification...or refinement...a transforming into the likeness of Jesus. I highly recommend reading this book with a friend or in a group setting. YOu'll gain far more from the discussion time. I wish every young woman could read this book! I would have loved to have book like this when I was in my mid to late teens and really struggling with fears, insecurities and comparisons. She's got issues is 14 chapters and includes quizzes and other personal assessment tools. ********************************************************************************************* The She's Got Issues DVD series was a great addition to the book that Tyndale sent me a few months ago. Nicole Unice is not only a great writer, she is a gifted counselor. She is warm, caring and understanding as she asks questions and discusses the different issues we face and what to do about them. I loved the "one-on-one" counseling sessions she did with various women. I found myself relating to almost all of them! I really liked hearing about the examples from her life and loved how she closed each session in prayer. The DVD series is comfortable yet convicting too. I loved the "living room" style and the easy listening music. There are 6 sessions totaling 160 minutes Control, Insecurity, Fear, Anger, Comparisons and Unforgiveness. There is also a special leaders participation guide which would be really helpful in a group setting.I think it would be great to do a 6 week womens' group study and have question/discussion time afterward.

    I started this book almost two months ago, and I’m usually not a slow reader. But where some books I read are like a bowl of ice cream I gobble up in a few minutes, She’s Got Issues is like a multi-course meal I wish wouldn’t end. Author Nicole Unice gives us–women, especially–plenty to chew on. At first glance, I wanted to deny. Issues? What issues? Then I scanned the Table of Contents: fear, anger, insecurity, unforgiveness. Oh. Those issues. The journey into and through your issues, whatever I started this book almost two months ago, and I’m usually not a slow reader.

Author Nicole Unice gives us–women, especially–plenty to chew on. At first glance, I wanted to deny. Issues? What issues? Then I scanned the Table of Contents: fear, anger, insecurity, unforgiveness. Oh. Those issues. The journey into and through your issues, whatever they might be, can be scary, but Unice is like a seasoned travel guide through the darkest valleys. She doesn’t preach from on high. She’s talking to us from the trenches of transformation. Her style is humorous, fresh and real. She doesn’t hide her own struggles, and she doesn’t want us to hide them either. I started journaling when I began reading, and I’m glad I did. Otherwise, the whole book might be underlined. Unice offers thought-provoking questions, surveys and quizzes, as well as honest prayers. At the end of each chapter is a link (and one of those smartphone doodads) to watch a video related to the chapter. (Yeah, I’m tech savvy.) Here are some of the truths that have stuck with me: A blessing is the infusion of something with holiness Every woman becomes either beautiful, bitter or beaten (having given up on life) by the time she’s 40. We either face our stuff or we don’t. Six years from the big 4-0, I’m tracking toward bitter or beaten. That’s a hard truth to face, but my eyes are open to how I can face my issues and let God work through them. There’s a Lord for that. I don’t have to hold it all together. Growth is awkward. What if we began to think of our insecurities not as shameful places to hide but as opportunities to see God working in our lives? Secure women know their strengths and aren’t afraid to own them. They also know about their weaknesses and aren’t scared by them. They admit when they’re wrong but don’t beat themselves up. They take risks and fail but try again. When it comes to comparing myself to others or wishing I had someone else’s life, this statement punched me in the gut: The competition is between you and the you God wants you to be. Ignore everybody. Stay in your own lane. Among Christians there is a fear of rage, a surplus of resentment, and a shortage of indignation. Sanctification is about the very interruptions and issues I want to ignore. Seriously, get a copy of this book. It’s not self-help because Lord knows, I’ve tried to help myself through these things. No, it’s more like a self-can’t-help book. It’s, as the subtitle to the book says, “seriously good news for stressed-out, secretly scared control freaks like us.” Check out Nicole’s Website, or connect with her on Facebook or Twitter. The book has a DVD curriculum, too, which I’m guessing would be a great Bible study/women’s group resource.

She's Got Issues is a self-help book with a Christian spin. If you think that's a turn-off, pay attention: this is not your run-of-the-mill self-help book. Unice begins the book by acknowledging that, as wives, mothers, and friends, we are all flawed. We try to control the world. We live in the shadow of insecurity. We let fear rule our lives. All of these flaws can make our lives feel out of sync, out of control, and over-stressed. If all of that sounds overwhelming (but all too familiar), here's the good news: there is hope. We must remember to look to the wisdom of our faith for answers. Through a combination of scripture, relate-able anecdotes, and journaling exercises, Unice guides the reader through the pitfalls we walk ourselves into every day and some practical advice on how to avoid them. The hope is not found in a quick fix. It is found in prayerful self-reflection. It is found in simple scripture-based mantras that can guide your daily walk. It is found in small steps. This book gave me perspective on my current life and allowed me to see how my Christian faith can guide me through many of the challenges I had long ago written off as idiosyncratic character flaws. It's a great book for anyone who wants to make a change in their life but hasn't quite figured out where to start. If you're looking for a book for your book group or Sunday School, this is a great option as well. It includes links to video clips plus insightful questions and surveys that walk you through each individual topic. I can't wait for Nicole's next book!

All of us as women find ourselves in at least one of these places.

Along with a great book, there is a study DVD and workbook that work with the book. While you can use these for a women's small group discussion, I liked having the DVD to supplement the book. Nicole writes the book in an easy-to-read style with humor. When you read the book, you feel like you are sitting down talking with her. Through the DVD you join Nicole in her living room with a group of women and listen to Nicole talk about the issue for that session. Each topic also has a one-on-one conversation between Nicole and another woman who identifies with each issue discussed. Nicole weaves personal experiences with Bible examples and good wisdom to help us see and understand each of the issues presented: Control, Insecurity, Comparison, Fear, Anger, and Unforgiveness. The book has 2 chapters focusing on each of these issues. One chapter explains the issue, and the second chapter discusses how to deal with it. There are journaling prompts, discussion points, and also quizzes to see if you are struggling with this issue even though you may not know it. :) I have enjoyed this book and DVD and I look forward to going through both in more depth, and maybe in a small group. :) Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book and DVD for review purposes. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

SOoooo.... we cover it up under that "good Christian girl" facade and plaster on a smile and go through the motions giving all the right "churchy" responses to life while struggling to maintain our "Perfect" exterior we are falling apart on the inside. And so we struggle on the inside - silently - thinking we are all alone in this crisis of identity and self-worth. In this book Nicole Unice delves into the issues of being a woman in today's hectic, face-paced society. She pulls back the layers of lies that the enemy has heaped upon us, exposing the truth and setting us free to be who God intended us to be. This is excellent for a small group experience - and your small group will definately walk away changed. Also - it will bring to light things that women just don't talk about - letting some see for the first time they are not alone in the issues they face. A small group will leave with a strong group of supporters and friends as they face head-on the issues in their individual lives. I will say that this author has a candid and personal writing style that makes the reader feel as if they are visiting with a friend about everyday stresses and secrets. Thanks so much to the publisher for the free review copy of the book and DVD. I would highly recommend this to all church groups.

Each chapter, Nicole discusses the current topic and also includes personal assessments and quizzes to help you identify the issue in your life.

For the group session each week, the DVD has a short 5-10 minute interview with a lady who is facing the issue that is being discussed for that session. This is followed by 10-15 minutes of journaling time, 15 minutes teaching session by Nicole and then ends with 20-25 minutes of discussion time. I've enjoyed reading through this Bible study material. Each of these issues are a common struggle for most women, and I could readily identify with what Nicole was discussing in the book. She does make you stop and think about the things we do in life and what is driving the way we act. It's good to take a step back and really think through the way you act. Negatively, one thing I really didn't care for was the use of the NLT and Message Translations. I really prefer a more literal translation. Overall, I think the study material is worthwhile and good read. **I received this bible study material free from Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.

    In She’s Got Issues, the author teaches that every woman struggles with issues and to varying degrees. Of all the issues, that plague mankind, the five that are the biggest problems among women are control, insecurity, comparison, fear, anger/unforgiveness. The author devoted two chapters per issue and in the first chapter, she explains what the issue is, how it can affect a woman, and the underlying causes for the issue.

She also included a checklist for each issue, which I found was very helpful in determing how much of a problem each issue is in my life. In the second chapter, devoted to each issue, the author wrote about the importance of allowing God to heal that part of yourself as well as our responsibilities in the healing process. Throughout the entire book, the author used true stories of real people to illustrate the points she was trying to make and Scripture verses to further the point that was being made. I found this book to be very enlightening and it caused much self-reflection for each issue that I read about and I found the stories and Scripture verses to be quite compelling. I think that this is one of those books that would be beneficial for every woman and teen girl to read because I have seen for myself that these issues are very prevalent in our society today.

    By reading this book on my own, watching the videos in Bible Study, and through discussions with my close friends,this was a very helpful study that revealed a lot of different things for me. The book itself, though, wasn't organized or written in such a way that really spoke to me. One of the other women in our study who was reading it said, "When I read it, I feel like I am in a fog.

    I read this book in a book study with friends, following along with the short videos that compliment each topic. Our whole group found the book engaging and eye-opening... to the point where we'd begin a chapter thinking, "Oh, I don't really have an issue in this area," to "oh, maybe I do..." It's a book that helps you see how normal you are, issues and all! But also practical ideas for working through those issues as well as acknowledging the ways God is glorified in our weaknesses. Great book!

    I didn't want to read this book. I mean, I very much wanted to read it and enjoyed every bit of it but I wanted to engage in conversation about these topics rather than read about them. I'm an internal processor so for me to want to chat something out is unusual. The book pushed me in ways that I needed to be pushed as it opened up corners of my life that I wanted to remain closed. I'm going to have to read it again (with somebody).

    Ok ladies, this is a must read. I don't give out that classification to many books, but this one earns it hands down. The author is a Christian counselor, seminary grad who realized that 90% of her counseling clients were coming to her for one of five common issues. She took those five issues, and godly ways of handling them, and wrote one of the funniest, most helpful books I've ever read.

    I loved this book! I won it from a blog, or else I probably wouldn't have picked it up because I don't think of myself as a control freak. However, this book is about so much more than that, it's about the main issues with which many women struggle, and written by an author who is a Christian counselor.

    This book was AMAZING. It helped me get through a very hard time in my life. The anxious person that I am needed this book more than ever! The book details realistic references and is able to so smoothly tie them to God's Word and helpful reminders to guide you through the darkest times! I would recommend this book to ALL of my girlfriends. It is truly a MUST read!

    This book was really helpful. We did it as a small group Bible study. We gave great information about each issue and ways to resolve it and tied it into scripture. As a wife and mom this book was very relevant to my life at this time. I will probably read this again at some point or refer back to the issues as I see them in my life.

    This was a refreshing acknowledgement that women who love Jesus aren't perfect.... It was so nice to have that out in the open and talk real strategies for addressing issues of insecurity, anxiety, anger and comparison. While not the strongest in terms of writing, I still took a lot away from this book that I can apply to my life.

    I've reviewed this at The Christian Manifesto. It's a fantastic book intended for Christian women. The author's style is fun and chatty and she's not afraid to share stories from her own life. I was most impressed with her wisdom. This will be a book that I come back to again and again.

    I love this book, not only is it really how I feel and issues I know all us women really deal with; such great tips, ideas and practical applications. Really need to leave it all up to God!

    I met Nicole at a women's church retreat and I really enjoyed her straight forward teaching. She has a way of breaking down the stuff that every woman deals with and she helps you see it from the correct lens, God's lens. I love this book and highly recommend it to women.

    This one hit home quite often with several of the topics discussed. So blessed to have such a great community group that we can be open and honest with each other, and ultimately ourselves. Loved Nicole Unice! She's awesome! Must find more from her to read and enjoy!

    Well, I read this book veeeeery slowly. There were a lot of things to to think. I appreciated the fact that, in the end, she said that "every issue" is a way to walk with Jesus. He works through the issues, not despite. Very good.
