Will the Real Person Please Stand Up? Gail Porter (front cover)It’s easy to identify with the many real-life examples in the book. Even if the illustration is something you haven’t experienced personally, you probably know someone who has. Porter tells those stories in a way that draws you into the conversation, puts you next to the person, and helps you understand the fear and pain we all experience along with the ways we learn to protect ourselves.

Then she takes you to the next step, which is how to rise above the fear of rejection and embrace the real you. You’ll learn how to take off your mask, tear down the walls, stop trying to please everyone and focus on pleasing God.

Porter writes:

In God’s strength, people who struggle with the fear of rejection can walk out of their self-made prisons and taste the freedom that will allow them to become who God made them to be.

This book works for an individual read or as a group study.

About the Book

Book: Will the Real Person Please Stand Up?
Author: Gail Porter
Genre: Non-Fiction/Personal Growth
Release Date: Oct 1, 2018

Does fear of rejection hold you back from letting people see the real you? Are you tired of hiding?

Gail Porter lived with this kind of fear during her childhood and most of her adult life. When God revealed her bondage to the power of fear, she was set free to come out of hiding and become who He’d created her to be. What she learned grew into a passion to help others experience the same freedom.

Will the Real Person Please Stand Up? offers much-needed hope to those who long to be set free from the fear of rejection and become their authentic selves. In this life-changing book you will read Gail’s own experiences, stories of real people, and input from those in the medical field. Gail walks you through the process of identifying and acknowledging what holds you captive so you can live in freedom rather than in fear.

With God’s help, you can walk out of your self-made prison, break strongholds, and taste the freedom that will allow you to become who God made you to be. Get ready to stand up and say, “This is the real me.”

“Gail teaches her readers how to embrace the present without encumbrances of the past. With practical, action-based steps, we learn to climb mountains with new determination and anticipate our futures with joy.” Jeanne LeMay, author of Dear God I’m Desperate: Women Have Issues, God Has Answers.

More from Gail

  • Do you hide from others because you’re afraid they won’t like what they discover about you?
  • Are you holding back from walking through God’s open doors because you don’t think you’ll perform well enough?
  • Have you allowed past experiences or personal fears to keep you from becoming the person God intended you to be?

Join me on a journey to escape the bondage of your fear of rejection and experience the freedom to become the Real Person God created you to be.

I spent many years in bondage, subconsciously building walls, designing masks, creating a false identity, and striving for perfection—all attempts to fill my longing for love and acceptance. Through my experience of coming out of hiding, breaking barriers with the help of God, and tasting true freedom, I discovered a passion to help set others free.

You will learn about my journey to freedom in my book, Will the Real Person Please Stand Up? Rising Above the Fear of Rejection. I’ll walk you through the process of identifying and acknowledging what holds you captive, breaking barriers, and taking that first step to freedom.

As you read my personal story, as well as the stories of many others, you will discover how much God wants you to step on the path to freedom. Say yes to God, and let’s travel this road of freedom together! Then we can all stand up and say, “This is the real me!”

Thank you for being part of this blog tour! I’m excited about the way God will change your life as you allow Him to lead you to His path of freedom where you can let go of your fear of rejection, become your authentic self, and experience life fully.
