Description

What if the labels are right, but the definitions are all wrong?

The world’s definition of an ideal woman often becomes a lady’s personal list of inadequacies. The culture-created pressure to be the ideal woman begins in adolescence and can consume a woman’s focus well into adulthood. Issues like bullying, obesity, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and anxiety are on the rise, and they often stem from women trying to find value in stereotypes and social acceptance rather than in their true worth.

How can a woman filter through the cultural noise and expectations to understand who God has really made her to be? In Labeled, Stacy examines seven words that society frequently uses to compare women to each other. Then, she offers insight, biblical definitions, and practical solutions for breaking the traps set by these labels in order to reclaim them as God-honoring expressions of who God created us to be. Chapters also include questions for reflection and group discussion. Relatable and entertaining, Labeled offers healing for women who have struggled with society’s poor definitions of womanhood and encouragement for women striving to change them.

Advance Praise

“In a world that loves to label, defining and categorizing others and then placing them neatly in boxes, Stacy Dickman’s book Labeled sets women free. If you want to stop striving for significance in the eyes of others and rest in the assurance of God’s love for you, let Stacy’s encouraging words and biblical insight empower you to wear only one label—beloved daughter of the one true God.”

Karen Ehman, New York Times best-selling author of Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker, and Bible teacher for First 5

“Using wisdom from Scripture, Stacy redefines the unhelpful labels women get stuck in. The concepts in this book align with current research in psychology on shame, vulnerability, and connection. Readers can maximize their experience with this book by reading it in community—the discussion questions promote openness and draw out the commonalities between women.”

Stephanie Shell, counselor, ThrivePointe Counseling

“Dickman writes in a way that includes each woman and takes her on a journey. The group discussion questions are pointed and thoughtful, encouraging readers to uncover who God truly says they are—princesses of the most high king. My hope is that every teenage girl (and grown woman) will read this book so that they will be able to name the labels society tries to apply to them and live in the freedom of who God says they are.”

Sara Mosteller, Director of Cinderella’s Closet, southwest Ohio

“Sit down with your favorite cup of tea or coffee and enjoy this conversation with someone who wants you to see yourself as God does. Stacy delivers a much-needed word to our world. Labeled has the potential to be the catalyst you need to be transformed by the Holy Spirit. Biblically literate, clinically sound, and graciously delivered. Don’t miss it!”

Rev. Jeremy Spence, pastor and counselor, First Baptist Church, St. Paris, Ohio

“In Labeled, Stacy masterfully combats cultural norms with biblical truth. Her study and exposition of Scripture gives women a clear window into God’s heart and a new lens by which to see themselves and live confidently within his design. It’s refreshingly authentic, as Stacy doesn’t simply share practical advice, but shares her own personal struggles. Sometimes, the only thing we need in order to experience a breakthrough is to know that someone else already has. If you’re tired of living someone else’s version of you, read this book and reclaim your identity as a daughter of the king!” 

Shawn Spradling, lead pastor, Center Pointe Christian Church
