You're Going to Be Okay by Holley Gerth - REVIEWED

About the Book:
If your life isn't perfect . . .
If you've ever been disappointed . . .
If you feel stressed or tired . . . 
This is for you.
You really are going to be okay. And it truly is possible to live with joy, resilience, and strength no matter what life brings. Yes, there will be hurt and hard times. But God wants to help you find ways to survive, grow stronger, and even thrive--no matter what happens.

With her trademark positive encouragement and probing questions for self-reflection, bestselling author Holley Gerth encourages you to spend less of your life stressing or regretting and more of your life truly living.

My Thoughts
Because of Jesus, we have hope that whatever we face will not last forever.  We can look ahead and know this is certain about our future: the Lord is there.”  (p. 44)

Holley Gerth’s latest book, You’re Going to Be Okay, is a book that encourages readers to stay focused on who they are in Christ. To remember that our circumstances don’t define us  - that only our relationship with God through Jesus Christ determines who we are and who we belong to.  Through practical, honest and gentle steps Holley guides readers to explore their hearts despite whatever circumstance they are facing and exchange worry and stress for hope and trust in God.  She explains this through a variety of perspectives – physical, emotional and spiritual.  She fills the reader’s mind with the truth of God’s Word and uses real examples from her own life journey to further encourage readers.

Each chapter has an accompanying set of questions and study helps so this book can be used in a group or by an individual.  I have to say that God’s timing for this book in my life has been truly providential.  I’m walking through the remnants of my 22-year marriage.  Instead of celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary I will mark 2 years divorced on my calendar this year.  But thank GOD for Holley Gerth’s obedience to write what God has called her to share in You’re Going to Be Okay!!  What healing!! What comfort!! What JOY!! This book has been life-giving and life-changing for me, and I am anxious to share this with everyone!!
