Publisher's Summary

If you've ever been given empty clichés 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!

    "From pain to purpose"

    This is a touching story - one that gently guided a young women to know true love from Her true Father. Keep sharing Esther. This is a message we all need to hear.

    "Great Encouraging Read"

    Enjoyed her engagement through story, reflection and the use of scripture with the over arching theme, no need to pretend or fake it till you make it.

    "wonderful book"

    This books is for anyone who's tired of trying to hold it all together, or anyone who has been devasted by circumstances. Esther Fleece gives comfort to the reader, whatever they're going through, because God has so comforted her. would highly recommend.

    "Learning to Lament
    "

    Who would have ever dreamed that the pretending I learned as a child would nearly kill me as an adult. I had lived so long in the land of make-believe that I could not deal with the actual realities of my own life. God called me out of that pretense almost 6 years ago now and has loved my heart back to life. I only wish He had done it earlier. Maybe He tried to. I'm just so thankful that Esther was brave enough to put her journey of lament into writing or speaking as it is. I never want to fake fine- ever again.
    With a grateful heart! Laura S.

    "Awesome book"

    Loved the reminders that Im just hiding my hurts and fears behind my busy crazy life, but beyond that an admonition to stop faking fine and dive into those hurts and fears. They are holding us back , not only from a better life, but from a deeper relationship with God.

    "Great Read"

    I can relate to a lot of things in this book and for the longest time l have faked being fine to avoid being asked questions or told to suck it up. Also in the church l have pretended and served in a lot of ministries and thought l had to be perfect to be great and gain approval and now l know that's wrong. Thanks for this book l loved it all

    "Your book is my praise during my time of lament"

    A friend sent me this book. I had assumed she had read it but it turns out that this book was written not just for me, but for me exactly at this time and place in my journey. I could write a book in response, but suffice it to say THANK YOU. And thanks to the sender God is still on time.
