Amy’s Books


Ready to move from running-on-empty to spent-and-content?

Exhale is for the woman suffocating under the pressure of being all things to all people; of filling every unfilled spot at church, work, and home; of trying to do it all right, make decisions that benefit everyone else, and keep everyone happy.

Rather than adding more to your to-do list, Amy Carroll and Cheri Gregory show you how to:

          • lose the ill-fitting roles you’ve been trying to fill so that you can be lighter and freer
          • love your truest, God-created self with all your glorious gifts instead of trying to shove yourself into a mold
          • live your one and only life in a way that you know truly matters

This isn’t a time-management book filled with how-to lists and calendar tools. Instead, it walks you through a process that releases you from the things that have created unbearable pressure. Then you’ll be able to live the combination we all long for: fulfilling the desires of your heart, loving your people well, and bringing glory to God.

Breaking Up with Perfect

We’ve all been in relationships that were bad for us . . . whether with a catty girlfriend, a selfish boyfriend, or a coworker who undermines our best efforts.

But there is one relationship that steals the potential of all other relationships—including our relationship with ourselves and, ultimately, our relationship with God. And that’s our relationship with Perfect. Perfect is a bad friend. No matter what we do or say or give or bake or create . . . it’s never enough. Perfect always demands more, but it’s never satisfied. Never.

Breaking Up with Perfect will help you:

  • Experience authenticity as the antidote for isolation
  • Trade the Lies of Perfection for the Truths of God’s Love
  • End the pursuit of perfection, so God can begin His powerful perfecting work in you

After reading this book, you’ll be able to end the never-ending stress that chasing Perfect brings and live a life filled with joy, peace, and spiritual fulfillment.
