You're Already Amazing

This delightful book by Holly Gerth begins with a dare to believe that, "You don't have to do more, be more, have more."  It's a tough premise to accept from the get-go, yet one that we each long to believe in our souls.  Our culture's demand of MORE constantly bombards the truth that you, that I am enough.

Readers will genuinely feel they have set down with a friend who will pour love and truth into hearts that may be a bit world weary.  With gentle, interactive  exercises her book offers insight for each of us to know ourselves while identifying our strengths and accept where we have room for growth.  Women of all ages and seasons of life will appreciate the encouraging words and sense the love of Christ as described by Gerth.

"The goal is not perfection.  It's simply to be in an intimate relationship with Christ each day, fully embrace who he created us to be, and seek to fulfill the purpose he has for us."  (page 29) This phrase echoes the principle on which I strive to live that perfection is not the goal of our life.  Pick up a copy today and be encouraged by the truth shared by Gerth.  It would make a wonderful gift or use the questions in back for a group study.
