It often concerns me how hard women can be on themselves - the poor self care, the heavy workloads, the never ending self criticism. (I confess this is me sometimes.)
... this book may be the cure.
I just finished reading You're Already Amazing by Holley Gerth.
It's like a hug, a great cup of coffee and the best encouragement you've ever had all rolled into one.
Holley walks you through a number of simple exercises to discover your unique design and, in doing so, helps you toss a load of lies and wrong expectations off of your back. Each page offers an insight, a bit of wisdom or an encouragement.
I walked away from it with a renewed appreciation for who God created me to be and an excitement for my life's journey. I also saw more clearly the dangers of the comparison trap.
Well, a great book just hollers out for a contest, so please leave as a comment to this post "something about yourself." It can be as simple as "I'm an introvert" or as full out as sharing your dreams and how you plan to walk them out. On February 18th, I'll pick a random number and the commenter in that spot will win a copy of You're Already Amazing (if they already have a copy, they can pick a book from the Marriage Book Library).
The quote today is so cool. It's from Holley's book. I love it because it is such a load remover. It's God speaking to you.
Love all. Please One.
Be who I've created you to be.
You are enough because I am enough in you.
