fierce hearted by Holley Gerth - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Every day we struggle to find more freedom, joy, and purpose. What if the solution isn't trying harder or being better but embracing the fiercehearted woman already inside us? A fiercehearted woman looks life in the face and says, "You can't beat me." She lives fully and loves bravely. She never gives in, never gives up, and never lets go. She dares to be who she is--imperfect and beloved.

In her most powerful and personal book yet, bestselling author, counselor, and life coach Holley Gerth empowers and encourages women not simply through "how to" but by life-changing, heart-freeing "me too." Join Holley on this journey to becoming a fiercehearted woman and discover what she did: the freedom and courage to embrace life, love, and faith to the fullest because your struggles can no longer hold you back.

My Thoughts:
Our role is obedience, God’s job is results.  It’s all about loving him and the people he entrusts to us.  Serve whoever is right in front of you, and he will make a way.”  (p. 85)

God used this book to set me free in areas of my life that I’ve allowed to hold me hostage for years!  I cannot begin to tell you the sweet times of worship I had as I read the pages of this book!  I underlined, and highlighted, cried and rejoiced, texted passages to family and friends….this book has been a holy appointment in my life for which I thank God!!  I thank God for allowing Holly Gerth to write from her heart and share her own struggles, because as I read, it was if I heard a holy echo….you too?

Each chapter is a personal vignette that build seamlessly toward a simple, but profound truth.  Each life situation will feel familiar and make you feel as if you’ve just shared time with a trusted friend.  Living fully and loving bravely are mutually exclusive and until you are freed from fear and unrealistic expectations, you can’t live or love as God intended you to do.

I fully expect that Holly will receive an outpouring of thanks for writing such a transparent, bold book that reveals her heart so clearly to others.  This book has been a treasured gift to my heart, and I can’t begin to express my gratitude to God for guiding Holly to write such an amazing book!!

About the Author:
HOLLEY GERTH can often be found at a quiet corner table in a coffee shop with a hot latte and her banged up, beloved laptop. She’s the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You’re Already Amazing and several other books as well as a counselor and life coach. Until you can join Holley for your favorite coffee or tea, she’d love for you to hang out with her at www.holleygerth.com.
