Publisher's Summary

If you've ever been given empty clich├ęs during challenging times, you know how painful it can feel to be misunderstood by well-meaning people. Far too often, it seems the response we get to our hurt and disappointment is to suck it up or pray it away.
But Scripture reveals a God who meets us where we are, not where we pretend to be.
No More Faking Fine is your invitation to get gut-level honest with God through the life-giving language of lament. Lament, a practice woven throughout Scripture, is a prayer that God never ignores, never silences, and never wastes. As author Esther Fleece says, "Lament is the unexpected pathway to true intimacy with God and with those around us."
Esther learned this the hard way, by believing she could shut down painful emotions that haunted her from a broken past she tried to forget on her fast track to success. But in silencing her pain, she robbed herself of the opportunity to be healed. Maybe you've done the same.
No More Faking Fine is your permission to lament - to give voice to the hurt, frustration, and disappointment you've kept inside and silenced for too long. Drawing from careful biblical study and hard-won insight, Esther reveals how to use God's own language to draw closer to him as he leads us through any darkness into his marvelous light.

This Book Is A Huge Gift from God

It's been a Long time since a book has so deeply moved me and No More Faking Fine changed me. Esther Fleece's story, and her experiences with Lamentations-- a forgotten and therapeutic gift from God--moved me to try it myself. To look up Lamentations in holy scripture, and to shift in ways that no healing techniques could ever take me to. I am a different , better, freer soul because of this book. I'm so Thankful my sister shared this with me! I am so Grateful the author took the time to write her real experiences and thoughts on Lamentations power to transform pain into new visions. I'm sharing this book with everyone I feel called to share it with! Transforming !!!

Life changing book - if we let it be!

The way I came to have this book was not a purposeful act on my part. I had recently tried to recommend a different book to a friend, but i initially botched the title. I guess in trying to find my recommendation, she found this and graciously gifted me a copy of "No More Faking Fine." What a gift it was. I honestly thought I had worked through and forgiven all the pain and trauma I experienced in my life. Little did I know that I was still clinging to some of those experiences and they were manifesting as fear in my current walk! THANK GOD for Esther Fleece and her willingness to share her story and to be transparent and vulnerable to help others. I have gifted this book to SEVERAL people, with others on my list as God guides me. Thank you Esther!
