Book Review: Preach to Yourself by Hayley Morgan

Preach to Yourself by Hayley Morgan

Do you struggle with negative self-talk? Do you often feel like you will never measure up? Or you just can’t get it right? Or you just keep failing over and over again? The author Hayley Morgan has wrestled with this tension her whole life. She has struggled with the repetitive, negative self-talk.

In Preach to Yourself, Hayley Morgan helps the reader to how to renew our minds to renew our lives. This book will show you how to identify the toxic loops and replace them with the truth of God. It is not a suggestion to “try harder”, however. It is an invitation to “believe better.” Hayley Morgan encourages the reader to take God at His Word when He tells you who you are. To find your identity in Christ, and to preach that to yourself.

I would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with negative self-talk. This book made me recognize some very toxic loops that I had going on in my life. It also made me recognize ways that I was talking to myself, that were very negative and destructive. Because of this book, I feel like I am now replacing those negative things with the truth of God’s Word. This is a slow process, for sure.

As for the writing style itself, this wasn’t my favorite. The book went by very fast and sometimes I had trouble connecting paragraphs together. So in some ways, things felt a little unconnected and loose at times. However, the message of this book is great. I also found that Hayley Morgan was preaching to myself in very necessary ways. So I really would recommend this book to all women.

I was provided a free copy of the book by the publisher in exchange for a review. However, I wasn’t required to write a positive review. All opinions I have expressed here are my own.

  1. love the cover and concept – i wonder, was it self-published so it didn’t have the advantage of professional editing? I know that would help my writing.

  2. Hi, neighbor (Let’s Have Coffee)! I was a little afraid to read this review when I saw the title of the book you were reviewing. I’m glad you mentioned that the book isn’t a ‘try harder’ kind of book but directs readers to find value in Christ. We need more voices to speak the truth like that. I enjoyed your review, and I’ll definitely keep this book in mind, since negative self-talk is always something I struggle with. Blessings!
