You're Already Amazing by Holley Gerth

About the Book
Women feel enormous pressure to be perfect. To have the perfect body, to be a perfect woman, to have the perfect career, and to have the perfect attitude. All the time. Under all that pressure and all those expectations are women carrying burdens they were never meant to carry and suppressing the dreams they were always meant to live.
In You're Already Amazing, popular blogger and cofounder of (in)courage helps women understand and embrace the fact that they don't need to do more, be more, and have more--because they're already amazing just the way God created them to be. As a licensed counselor and certified life coach, Holley knows what readers need to hear. Like a heart-to-heart talk over coffee, reading this joy-filled book encourages women to forget the lies and expectations the world feeds them, instead believing that God made them for a purpose and that he loves them right now, at this moment, and always. Holley takes readers on a journey of the heart to discover their strengths and embrace all God created them to be.

My Thoughts
This book was awesome. I loved the way it was written almost as if the author was actually having a conversation with you. There were so many amazing truths in this book, some that I'd heard before and some that I hadn't, but all were ones that I think every woman should hear. So many times I've been inclined to compare my spiritual walk and the way I think or feel to the Christian women around me and often I feel like since I don't do it like them then I must be doing it wrong. But in reality God made me the way I am and He wants me to worship Him the way He created me to. I really liked the way this whole book was laid out and there are things I read that will stick with me. In short I recommend this book to pretty much all women! There are things in here that we all need!
