Blog Tour: You're Already Amazing (Review)

Holley Gerth wants women to know that they are already amazing - regardless of the little voices in her head.

Gerth has created a book "You're Already Amazing" and packed it full of stories, illustrations and even some self-quizzes that a reader can use to do a self examination for personal growth.

Written in an extremely easy to understand style, it seems as if Gerth is sitting down next to you as you read the pages.

Gerth has a life coaching ministry and interacting with the book is almost like having a personal session with her.

Besides her work as an author, Gerth creates a line of cards with DaySpring, a subsidiary of Hallmark. As an "added thanks" Gerth included a hand-signed copy of one of her cards with the review book.

The card - and the warmth of the words - were the balm that my soul needed the day I found it. (The picture doesn't give the card justice.)

Honestly, I found that same warmth and honesty - call it authenticity - in Gerth's book.

The book is intriguing and inviting. It could work as both a personal and a group study.I could see completing the book as a personal study along side an accountability partner.

On the scale of one to five, with five being the highest, I give it a three.

Psst . . . pull up a chair and I'll tell you a secret. You'd better lean in close for this one.

Ready?
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.
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. . . .
So watch out, sister. If you keep reading you just might be next.
With this heart-to-heart message, Holley Gerth invites you to embrace one very important truth--that you truly are already amazing. Like a trusted friend, Holley gently shows you how to forget the lies and expectations the world feeds you and instead believe that God loves you and has bigger plans for your life than you've even imagined.
