Imperfect Courage: Live a Life of Purpose by Leaving Comfort and Going Scared Reviews
Just finished reading and gaaahhh I am just so proud of WOMEN!!! I'm so proud of the imperfectly courageous women whose stories Jessica shares and I'm just so proud that I get to share in that! So much beauty in this BOOK. This will be a regular reread, and I'm going to be hounding friends to order their own copies FOR SURE.
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.

From the desperation that led to her first trunk show to the inventory miscalculation that almost collapsed the business, she uses her experiences to offer wisdom and encouragement to women everywhere.
For fans of Noonday Collection, this book offers a glimpse into the inner workings of the company and Honegger herself. Readers learn about the humble ...more
I've followed Jessica's Noonday journey since the very first trunk shows to bring Jack home. I have purchased jewelry, watched friends launch and grow their Noonday business, hosted trunk shows, and helped friends bring their adoptive children home while supporting artisans from around the world in their dignified jobs. I was pretty excited when Jessica decided to write a book, and even more excited to receive the advanced reader copy.
Imperfect Courage asks us all to take an honest inventory of ...more
I wanted to really love this one, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. I do like Jessica Honegger's story of grit, influence and faith woven into her being as she fought for the things that mattered to her: her adoption dream, and the seemingly happenstance start of her Noonday company.
I have been scared multiple times as a mother, and as an author. I've jumped in anyway. I understand needing to let people into your life, and the need to stop comparing our own demons and faults against someone's p ...more
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
This book is a must read for all women. Jessica Honegger is hilarious, insightful, compassionate, enthusiastic, but most of all real. She tells it like it is. She tells her personal story of creating a life filled with meaning and courage, not only for herself but for others. To fund her adoption of a son from Rwanda, she started selling paper bead jewelry made by artisans in Uganda. This personal quest led to the creation of a multi-million dollar business focused on empowering women through st ...more
I thought this book would be all about Jessica's business journey. I am not a business owner, but I am a fan of Noonday and thought it would be fun to be on the book launch team and receive an advanced reading copy.
I was captivated by the first page, and pleasantly surprised to find that this book is about so, so, so much more than business! Jessica lets us into her inner thoughts and takes us on a journey about how to conquer those pesky committes in our brain that keep telling us how we are fa ...more
