No More Christian Nice Girl

When Just Being Nice Instead of Good Hurts You, Your Family, and Your Friends

by Paul Coughlin and Jennifer D. Degler, PhD


I am reading “No More Christian Nice Girl” and really having my eyes opened! I should have had this book when I was a pastor’s wife and maybe I would have given myself permission to step back and think what Jesus would HAVE done and WOULDN’T have thought I had to do it all! I recommend this book very highly!

Thank You so Much for Your Book and Ministry. As I write this message I am shaking all over having just said “no” to a sister in Christ with an infinitely stronger personality who was pushing me hard to do something that was good, but not for me. As difficult as it was, today is a new day and the dawning of a new era in my life. I’m 35 years old and I’m finally ready to grow up and stand on these two little feet God gave me! I have invited five women to read and discuss “No More Christian Nice Girl” with me.

Wow! I just finished “No More Christian Nice Girl.” What a Great Resource for Every Woman. Thank you for writing this book and the encouragement in it. I loved every page and I plan on re-reading it now and doing all the extended study questions.

“No More Christian Nice Girl” is an Awesome Book. I love how it touches on various areas where women can be too nice. For me as a single woman that would include friends, family, dating, and work, although I did read and gain much insight from the entire book. I don’t even recommend books, but from the first chapter, I’ve been recommending this book to my female friends nonstop. I really appreciate the way you and Paul Coughlin put the book together, especially the humor. It really helps for me to have a sense a humor as I grow.
