Summary

Among our greatest fears is the dread of what others would think of us "if they only knew" - the parts of our past we hope to forget, the parts of our present we work to conceal. Yet the part we actually do the best job of hiding is not the unsightly debris of our own mess, but rather the stunning beauty of God's grace. The fear that demands we protect this false image at all costs leads us to unwittingly declare a false gospel at every turn.
Jamie Ivey finally grew tired of doing that, tired of being too ashamed and insecure to let others see the full extent of what God was capable of doing with our unworthiness. So she quit hiding. She let him get praise for what she'd been pretending she didn't need.
What she found as a result is how a willingness to just open up and say the stuff that most people refuse to reveal about themselves gives others permission to join us in our transparency. And how the process of becoming real ignites an ongoing passion in us for living out our ongoing redemption, enabling us to more fully embrace not only our relationship with him but also with one another.
If You Only Knew is the utterly inviting, often humorous, incredibly authentic back-story of one woman's life, told for the purpose of helping you strip away both the inner and outward hypocrisy that cripples Christian freedom, choosing instead to live with courageous confidence in God's ability to make you truly one person. His.

This book will be on my nightstand, like forever

This book touched my soul with real spiritual truths from a real momma. So, so loved the transparency Jamie so willing laid out there for all of us to see and bathe in. She so beautifully teaches of God’s love and redemptive work to all who are willing to approach His mighty throne of grace. Jamie’s the kind of woman we all need as a best friend. I can see this book filled with so many highlighted sentences, paragraphs, pages sitting on my nightstand forever. After a long day it will be one thing I turn to to remember who I am. Such a sweet, sweet gift from above.

Stories DO Change the World

This book, along with Jamie Ivey's weekly podcast, really has changed my world and changed my perspective. Instead of holding on to my story out of fear, I'm sharing it so that through my vulnerability others can know the redemption and freedom I've known. And I experience more freedom as I share my story. Crazy! By letting go of the very story I've protected, I get even more beauty and freedom in Christ... and deeper friendships. Of course I've recommended it and forwarded it to others.
