You're Already Amazing
by Holley Gerth
From the back cover:
Pssst...pull up a chair and I'll tell you a secret. You'd better lean in close for this one.
You don't have to do more, be more, have more.
I'm sure there are security alarms going off somewhere. You should probably hide this book when your in-laws come over. And this could be the makings of a Sunday morning scandal.
But it's true.
It's the kind of true that will change your life, set you free, and make you wake up smiling for the first time in a long time. I know because that's what it did for me (and believe me, for this non-morning girl that's nothing short of miraculous). I've seen it happen to a lot of other women too. I've read it in their words through thousands of comments on my blog. I've seen it in their faces on the couch in my counseling office. I've heard it in a new kind of laughter over coffee with friends.
So watch out, sister. If you keep reading, you just might be next.
Even if we've never met, I know this about you: you're a daughter of God, a holy princess,
a woman created with strengths you've yet to fully grasp and a story that's still being written by the divine Author Himself. And if you really take hold of who you are and what you're called to do, there will be no stopping you. That's because there's no stopping him in you - and he's got bigger plans for your life than you've even imagined.
Okay, you've been warned.
If you're feeling brave, I dare you to keep reading...
Doesn't that make you want to keep reading? This book was such an encouragement to me. Holley Gerth's open and encouraging writing style made me feel like I already knew her, like I could sit down for a cup of tea with her and be very comfortable. The book made me think about my gifts and strengths, and how I could better use them for God's kingdom. This is definitely a resource that I will hold onto and reference in the future!
I rate this book a "5" and highly recommend this as a "must read" for every woman who needs some encouragement!
This book is available March 2012 from your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
