The Burden of Better By Heather Creekmore

 Tired of chasing better?

Why is it so easy to compare yourself to others yet so difficult to stop? In an era of carefully curated social media images, nonstop selfies, and TV shows devoted to perfection, comparison can consume you. Chasing something better quickly becomes a burden, weighing down your soul and preventing you from experiencing the freedom, contentment, and rest that God generously offers.

With wit and honesty, drawing from her own struggles, Heather will encourage you to look in the mirror and see the many ways that you compare yourself with others. But more than that, she will show you the true joy living a comparison-free life. While other books on comparison call readers to embrace their own uniqueness, The Burden of Better reveals that only a deep understanding of God's grace, and a personal reliance on that grace, can cure the epidemic of comparison flooding your mind. Heather's humor, personal stories, and empathetic approach offers a gospel-centered guide to kicking your comparison habit.
