You're Loved No Matter What by Holley Gerth
From the publisher:
How would your life be different if you truly believed you're loved just as you are?" Holley Gerth poses this compelling question at the start of her latest book. As someone who has connected with thousands of women, Holley has seen the dangers of becoming trapped by impossible standards of beauty, achievement, and even spirituality. We believe if only we were perfect we could beat our depression, banish anxiety, and develop the relationships we long for most. Holley shares how God wants to set the hearts of women free by revealing the lies we believe and the scandalous grace and acceptance offered to us instead. When we know we're truly loved, the response is to love in return--and that changes everything.
This book has so much depth. I felt like it was going to counseling--in the best way possible. Holley Gerth asks deep thought provoking questions that if you really take time to think and pray about--can lead to you truly understanding more about yourself and how you react to the world around you. I wouldn't recommend this as a "quick-light" read. The book is very easy to read, but I think to really get the most out of it, you need to slowly digest each chapter and really process the information.
It is also an excellent resource. Almost every chapter Holley Gerth is referencing other books and sources. So if you are struggling with one area, or would like to know more about a topic she talks about in one chapter, you can look up these other selections. I loved that about this book.
There were personal answering section for each chapter, sometimes at the end, sometimes throughout. This, along with the group study questions at the end of the book allow the book to be interactive.
Holley Gerth was through as possible in this book and I believe everyone could gain something from reading this book. I was so glad I had read it and already have people in mind to give it to.
I received this book free from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
