A book for an Amazing You!
You're Already Amazing LifeGrowth Guide: Embracing Who You Are, Becoming All God Created You to Be by Holley Gerth is a great book of encouragement and coaching. I’ve always wanted a personal trainer and although I consider I have one named Jesus, Holley steps in with loads of advice, wisdom and plans.
This book is a companion to the book, You’re Already Amazing that Holley wrote previously but it is also a good stand-alone book to use for study. There are sessions listed: Who God Created Us to Be, What’s True No Matter How We Feel, Our Amazing Journey with Jesus, God’s Plan for Our Relationships, God’s Purpose for Our Lives, and How We Can Thrive for a Lifetime.
A favorite quote that I love is this, “I used to tell myself, ‘When I can just improve this part of who I am, then I’ll let people into it.’ Have you ever said the same? Eventually I realized God wasn’t asking for my life to be an immaculate mansion before I shared it with others.”(Holley Gerth)
I felt the same way for years and came to realize that the Lord used broken and bruised vessels to minister to the hurting much more than He uses immaculate mansions. Thanks Holley for your labor of love to women. We all needed this reminder to look for the amazing things within us.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher (Revell) in exchange for my honest review. I was not told to give a favorable review (but was happy to) and the opinions given are my own.
