What People Are Saying

Refreshingly Honest, This Book is for You

Don’t read this book unless you’re okay with the eerie sense that Kayla crept into your house and read your diary while you weren’t looking! On every page of this refreshingly honest book, I met a new friend who seemed to know exactly how I feel—which in the end, was precisely what I needed. If you’ve struggled with shame, insecurity and fear, this book is for you. Thank you, Kayla, for reading our diaries, taking us by the hand, and leading us into freedom.

A Laugh-Out-Loud Funny, Must-Read Book

As someone who has struggled with insecurity for many years, Kayla Aimee’s words were like a balm to my heart. Her gut-honest (and laugh-out-loud funny!) stories woven with poignant, biblical truths made me feel less alone and less crazy. (I’m so glad I’m not the only one who’s battled completely unfounded fears or who’s made up countless stories about what everyone else is thinking of me!) In Bloom is a must-read book for any woman who has ever felt like she is less-than, not enough, or that she just doesn’t measure up.

Equal Parts Humor and Humility

I have this secret belief that every woman I know is wondering if she really fits in, if people really like her, if she really matters. (Maybe it’s just because I carry those fears in my pocket everywhere I go.) In Bloom opens wide the doubts, insecurities, and fears we carry as women and, with equal parts humor and humility, Kayla Aimee invites us to hold those thoughts and feelings up to the light of God’s Word. I can’t think of a single woman who wouldn’t be just like me—laughing, crying, and praying her way through this book, whispering to herself, “Me too!” And at the end, finding herself thankful for the God who makes all things new.

A Gift When I Needed It Most

I found Kayla’s book on a day I was overwhelmed with commitments for which I felt completely inadequate. I just wanted to hide. Within the first few chapters, her refreshing and vulnerable storytelling welcomed me in and encouraged me to boldly step forward with confidence, knowing God had created me for this exact purpose. I needed coffee-time conversation with a girlfriend who understood, and In Bloom offered that gift when I needed it most.

Laughing Our Way to Healing and Wholeness

Insecurity is no laughing matter, and yet somehow Kayla speaks to the subject with a levity that lightens our load as we laugh our way to healing and wholeness. In the pages of In Bloom, Kayla chronicles her own journey from a self-abasing inner dialogue into the freeing truth of God’s thoughts toward her. Sojourn with her and you’ll start seeing yourself as God sees you too. What a miracle when His thoughts about us become our thoughts about ourselves, when His Word becomes the words we choose to believe are most true.
