-Rachel Jankovic, What Have You podcast
 
Seeing Green gently but persistently exposed the envy in my life and made me want something better.”
-Betsy Childs Howard, The Gospel Coalition


What Do You Do When Envy Clouds Your Heart?

You know that feeling, don't you? That heart sting when someone else receives the very thing you desire. When your best friend announces her engagement. When your sister says she's pregnant. When your coworker gets the promotion. You tell yourself you're happy for her, but you feel a hint of something else. That something is envy.

What if, in those moments, you were able to turn away from the green glow of envy, and see the spotlight of God's glory shine on your friend? What if your first response was joy?

Join Tilly Dillehay as she uncovers seven common sources of envy and challenges you to change the way you think about God's glory. In doing so, you will learn to rejoice with others, you will experience greater contentment, and you will discover how to truly love your neighbor as yourself.

“A life changing, life enhancing read, Seeing Green is very highly recommended for personal reading lists and community library Self-Help/Self-Improvement collections.”
—The Midwest Book Review

“Tilly Dillehay’s maiden book Seeing Green opened my eyes to things I had yet to notice or confess in myself. Through storytelling and scripture, Tilly takes readers on a journey to discover the envious parts of our souls… I appreciated the way the book helped me to realize the ways that I have been guilty of raising myself above others (even when my intentions were nothing but pure) and forgetting that God is the only thing that my heart should long for.”
MycahOnAMission.com

“Tilly Dillehay writes in a style of a friend having a heart-to-heart with another friend. She talks about things that are generally reserved for late night slumber parties. But in making herself vulnerable, she allows readers to truly be convicted and encouraged to free themselves of any envy that’s stealing their joy.”
FaithFlixFilms.com

“Using practical, down-to-earth language, Tilly [Dillehay] shows us how we can identify envy in all its disguises and how, by recognizing God’s glory on the subject of our envy, we can snuff out the green-eyed monster once and for all.”
QuildonWrites.blogspot.com

“Through [Dillehay’s] reflections I was able to identify areas in my life where I have struggled with envy. While there is no quick fix for this struggle I feel better equipped to name and identify this trait in myself when I sense those dark feelings creeping up. I’m so glad I have this resource now to turn to.”

“[Seeing Green] offer[s] some good insight into why we feel envious, and how we can switch that envy to joy and glorifying God instead.”
Britt-Hanson.com

“In this eminently practical book, Tilly Dillehay shows us envy in its many disguises so that we can learn to recognize its itching and writhing presence in our own lives. More than that, she celebrates the goodness of borrowed glory in God’s world, forcing us either to rot in our resentment or to learn to rejoice in the glorious inequalities that God so loves. [Seeing Green] is worth much reflection and meditation.”

"Envy—almost all of us struggle with it, and almost none of us will admit to it. In this eminently practical book, Tilly Dillehay shows us envy in its many disguises so that we can learn to recognize its itching and writhing presence in our own lives. More than that, she celebrates the goodness of borrowed glory in God's world, forcing us either to rot in our resentment or to learn to rejoice in the glorious inequalities that God so loves. This book is worth much reflection and meditation. I highly recommend it."
Joe Rigney, professor, Bethlehem College and Seminary, and author of Lewis on the Christian Life and The Things of Earth

"Seeing Green gently but persistently exposed the envy in my life and made me want something better. Tilly Dillehay writes honestly and compellingly about her own struggles and growth, leaving readers with confident hope that we don't have to give envy a home in our hearts."
Betsy Childs Howard, editor, The Gospel Coalition, and author of Seasons of Waiting

"Envy is a subtle and vicious sin, which usually aims at those closest to us—family, friends, neighbors, fellow workers, and church members. It is embarrassing to divulge, and thus it gnaws at our souls, filling us with rage at others' success or with satisfaction at their misfortune. Arguably, envy is the original sin that burned within Satan and has beset mankind throughout history. We see it in Scripture—from Cain to Saul to Joseph's brothers and to the Jews of Jesus's day who nailed him to a cross. In short, envy makes us unwitting accomplices of the Devil and it can destroy our souls. In her debut book, Tilly Dillehay helps us understand this sin in its various manifestations. With candid admission of her own struggle, penetrating insight into the human heart, and full confidence in God's mercy, Dillehay offers hope to those ensnared by this 'green-eyed monster.' She helps us see 'borrowed glories' for what they are and fixes our gaze on the glories that await those 'hidden with Christ in God' (Colossians 3:3). Read this book and serve your soul!"
Ivan Mesa, editor, The Gospel Coalition

"God knew I needed this book at the time I read it. Tilly helped me pinpoint some of my own relational troubles as a bout with envy, and her words also helped me know how to respond to this realization in biblically appropriate ways. Seeing Green is an excellent resource that I highly recommend."
Christine Hoover, author of Messy Beautiful Friendship and Searching for Spring, host of “By Faith” podcast

"Tilly Dillehay has written a book which is both convicting and encouraging. Convicting because it names a sin which we all share but excuse as less important than others. Encouraging because it points the reader to the One who is owed all glory.

"This book is full of Scripture as we face God's view of the sin of envy. We are shown the gospel that redeems us from all our sins. Christ is exalted and glorified. Women of all ages will benefit from reading Tilly Dillehay's book."
Caroline Newheiser, MA, certified counselor, Association of Certified Biblical Counselors; blogger, Biblical Counseling Coalition

"Seeing Green was a particularly satisfying book for me. Bold and frank in equal measure, it addresses one of the more grievous sins of our generation—envy—a rough granite sin that our therapeutic culture has trained us to shine up like it was virtuous marble or something. Dillehay writes intelligently, gracefully, biblically."
Douglas Wilson, senior fellow of theology, New Saint Andrews College; pastor, Christ Church, Moscow, Idaho; author of Wordsmithy and Reforming Marriage

"Envy is like the kudzoo of petty sin. Many Christian women are struggling to find the joy in their life, not realizing that invasive envy is choking it out. Tilly does a lovely job coming alongside women to find the roots of these entangling struggles and tear them up. Her own joy in freedom from this sin is contagious, and you will find yourself challenged, encouraged, and wondering what needs to be uncovered in your life."
Rachel Jankovic, author of Loving the Little Years and You Who; cohost of "What Have You" podcast

"This book is spiritually insightful, theologically well grounded (loved the interplay of dust and glory), engagingly written, and helpfully disarming. I anticipate it will seriously edify many."
Bobby Jamieson, associate pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.; author of Sound Doctrine and Going Public
