Jenn Schultz shares her insights about self-discovery, embracing God’s love, and fostering connections through her book about conquering insecurities.


Navigating the realms of comparison and insecurity is a journey many of us are familiar with.


Contrary to what some might believe, it's not about conquering these feelings once and for all, but rather about learning to navigate through them with courage and faith. The path to overcoming comparison and insecurity is a process marked by self-discovery, resilience, and a steadfast commitment to embracing our unique journey.


Today, Jenn Schultz, a podcaster, speaker, and book author for She’s Not Your Enemy – Includes Ten-Session Video Series: Conquering Our Insecurities So We Can Build God’s Kingdom Together, shares practical tips that have worked for me and can work wonders for every woman out there.


Tip #1: Embrace God's Unconditional Love

One of the first steps I took was understanding God's unconditional love. Like Jenn, I had misconceptions about God, thinking He was a demanding figure disappointed with my every move. But the truth is, God's love is unwavering. Take time to meditate on scriptures that emphasize His love, like Romans 8 and Psalm 103.


Tip #2: Replace Lies with Truth

Insecurities often stem from lies we tell ourselves. Combat these lies by actively replacing them with truths from the Bible. Write down scriptures that affirm your identity in God, and place them where you can see them daily. Ephesians 1 is a fantastic chapter for an identity check.


Tip #3: Social Media Detox

Oh, the allure of social media! It's a double-edged sword that can either inspire or trigger feelings of inadequacy. Take regular breaks from social media to disconnect from the comparison game. Set timers, go on a social media sabbatical, and focus on real connections.


Tip #4: Active Prayer for Others

Turning the focus outward can be a game-changer. When you feel rejected or insecure, actively pray for the women around you. It shifts your perspective, creates empathy, and fosters genuine connections. You might be surprised at how this simple act transforms your own insecurities.


Tip #5: Vulnerability and Connection

In a world that often glorifies perfection, embrace vulnerability. Share your struggles with trusted friends, and be open to hearing their stories. Connection flourishes in authenticity, and you'll find strength in knowing you're not alone in your journey.


Tip #6: Transform Toxic Thinking Patterns

Our minds are incredibly malleable. Actively engage in transforming toxic thinking patterns by immersing yourself in positive affirmations and uplifting messages. The renewing of the mind is a continuous process, and it's okay to seek help if needed.


Tip #7: Navigating Seasons of Waiting

Life is a series of seasons, and waiting is part of the journey. Whether it's waiting for a dream to come true or overcoming a personal challenge, surrender to God and seek strength in Him. Use this time to deepen your relationship with God and discover unexpected opportunities for connection.


Tip #8: Shalom – More Than Just Peace

Finally, embrace the concept of shalom – God's peace that goes beyond mere tranquility. Shalom encompasses holistic well-being in physical, mental, and spiritual aspects. Recognize that God desires not just for you to get along but to thrive in wholeness within a supportive community.


So there you have it – a personal journey intertwined to conquer insecurities. Remember, it's okay not to have it all figured out. Take these tips, adapt them to your unique journey, and most importantly, find your brave and live your dreams!
