Imperfect Courage: Live a Life of Purpose by Leaving Comfort and Going Scared Reviews
I will confess first that I have a hard time getting through a lot of non-fiction books. I was a little afraid after agreeing to read this book but Imperfect Courage had me to the very end. The end, where the last words brought hot tears of gratitude mixed with the unfinished pain the book sometimes brought up in me.
I admire Jessica and her courage and strength to push past her fears and obstacles to create and build Noonday into the amazing company it is today. But I do not relate as well to J ...more
This book talks a lot about Jessica's journey to create and grow her artisan jewelry business, Noonday. She shares her heart behind her business as well as the surprises, setbacks, missteps, and joy she has experienced.

Jessica Honegger writes a wonderful book of life ups and downs in the journey to Imperfect Courage through Noonday, her fair trade business. Honegger shares the passion of adoption and how it led her to begin a business that helps others reach that same goal. Imperfect Courage is so much more than a book of business and adoption. It is a raw look at going scared in life but the key word being GOING. The honesty of looking at others as equals, believing in the gifts we have been given and steppin ...more
Having just received my first piece of jewelry from the Noonday Collection, I was eager to read this book and learn more of the history of this company.
Maybe I'm in the minority of Christian non-fiction readers in today's world, but I prefer my Christian books to not have cussing in them. Whether it be a quote from some celebrity or a relative, I frankly do not care to read words like '*ss' and 'bullsh*t' in my books. Along with a couple mentions of other topics, I was quite disappointed in thi ...more
If you've ever felt like a middle school student, tightly gripping your lunch tray as you anxiously scan the room for a place to sit, then Jessica Honegger's words will resonate with you. While reading this advance copy of the book (given by publisher), I kept finding myself whispering "me too". Jessica emphatically assures us that there is a seat at the table for us and more importantly encourages us to scoot over and make room for others, something she calls the Sisterhood Effect.

I was excited to have the opportunity to read an advance reader copy of Jessica Honegger’s book, "Imperfect Courage".
I LOVED this book! I was introduced to Noonday Collection at an IF conference at my church. I absolutely love the jewelry, but I love the story behind the jewelry even more. When I heard that the founder of Noonday, Jessica Honegger, was writing a book about her story of starting her business, I couldn’t wait to read this book.
It’s an inspiring book about how to get out of our c ...more
