I Blame Eve by Susanna Foth Aughtmon

I Blame Eve is a book that speaks straight to my heart…

In a very funny, conversational, and easy to read format, Susanna talks about the “Eden gene” and how it affects our everyday lives as women. Broken up into 24 short chapters, she explains many different characteristics that we possess {no} thanks to Eve! Some examples are:

“I wish Eve hadn’t eaten that apple.”

“I want to hide from God.”

“I am a perfectionist.”

“I can get a little bitter.”

“I am a rule follower.”

“I am not in control.”

As I read through the book, I noticed that each chapter dug a little deeper than the previous one. By the end, as Susanna encouraged us to find the “new perfect,” God had brought me to a place where I wanted to completely let go of control and stop trying to do everything in my own strength.

I related with every single one of the characteristics described by Susannah. And yet again, as I read this book, I found a kindred spirit. As women, we are all struggling with the same issues. The more books I read by women authors, the more I realize we are so much alike.

Highly recommend this book. Well written. Easy to read. Very conversational and entertaining. Convicting and thought-provoking. Also includes a study guide at the end of the book.
