About the Book
Glasses Off is a gentle nudge, a warm but challenging invitation to focus. With one living, breathing essay after the next, Ciara welcomes you in with her authentic voice and tender heart. These fresh words serve as a reminder that while life looks different for each of us, God’s mysterious ways don’t always need to be so shrouded in mystery. That if we face ourselves, reflect, and grow, our lives can radiate—they can be as exquisite as we’d hoped. And, when we realize that God is present, beckoning us toward something greater, toward a specific vision for this season of our lives, we can relish in the fact that it’s up to us to find Him now—that it always has been.
“What a fantastic read for the everyday person to have fresh vision for their lives! Ciara sparks the imagination with her personal and cultural stories, vulnerability, practical insights, and biblical anchoring. She writes in a way that is whimsical, lighthearted and substantive all at the same time. It is as if you were sitting at a table with her enjoying a nice cup of coffee having a conversation that leaves you both encouraged and challenged to live life to the fullest.” —Ross Sawyers, Lead Pastor of 121 Community Church
“This book—and Ciara’s writing—are both incredible and timely! Her words are life-giving and soul-restoring! I couldn’t put it down!” —Holly Christine Hayes, Founder + CEO, Sanctuary Project
“Ciara Myers’ book, Glasses Off: Seeing God When Your Vision Is Gone, is a fresh read on vision. She passionately holds on to God even when the vision He has given her gets lost in the fog. Sharing her life stories along the way, Ciara invites you to look for God amidst all of life’s highs and lows. She lays out practical steps for recognizing a vision from God and integrates valuable sections on God-goal setting and boundaries to put legs on that vision and protect it. As you seek God’s vision in your own life, let Ciara walk alongside you as a friend and coach. She will keep you centered on the heart of God and champion your pursuit of vision.” —Lisa Toney, Chaplain Women of Faith and author of The Scripture Challenge
