One of the things I like the most about Holley's books, and this one in particular is that you can really hear her heart in the written words on the page. While reading it almost feels as if you are just sitting across the table with her and having a heartfelt conversation.  She once again dispels those myths (or voices) that seem to reach deep inside us and grab hold and tell us that everything is awful. Through the very pervasive use of scripture she gently reminds us that Satan is the father of lies and that God through His Son Jesus has a plan for us. I always walk away from her books uplifted and encouraged. This particular book has a section in the back called the Going Deeper Guide that includes probing questions that allow you to further contemplate the truths that were presented in each chapter. It is designed to be done on your own or with a group. I think this would be a great resource to use with a group of girlfriends over a nice cup of coffee. There are ten chapters so it could easily be done over a ten week time span. The discussion is bound to be that of an intimate nature leading all those involved into a deeper walk with Christ.  I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

Sometimes it feels like life's falling apart at the seams. Sometimes you're completely worn out by stresses that never seem to end. For every woman who has been disappointed, who has watched a dream die, whose life isn't what she imagined it would be, bestselling author Holley Gerth has a heartfelt message of hope--you really "are" going to be okay. And it "is" possible to live with joy, resilience, and strength in both the good times and the bad. In fact, she says, that's what God desires for us. With her trademark positive encouragement and probing questions for self-reflection, Holley encourages women to spend less of their lives regretting and more of their lives truly living. She shows them how to guard their hearts against despair and look to the future with confidence, remembering that they are part of a greater plan and "nothing "can stop God's purposes for them. -- Is it even possible to live with joy, resilience, and strength in this broken world? -- it is what God desires for you! -- Jesus said, "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." -- John 16:33 Gerth goes on with biblical references to encourage the daughters of the Great I Am, with biblical truths our hearts need to hear. She has exercises to fill out, pray about and do. I underlined three fourths of this book, and will buy a few copies to hand out, so I think I highly recommend this book! So much of this book is good, I can't list it all in this review. But I think my favorite part is the go deeper study at the end. What a blessing Holley is and I hope you will find this book a blessing as well! I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

We’ve all been there.  Times in our lives where what we are facing is so overwhelming that we just don’t think we will survive.  The pain is so great it engulfs our hearts and minds to the point we feel it will never end.  I know I have been to that point many times in my life.  It’s one huge problem after another or a bunches of little ones that wear me down.  This is where Satan steps in and gets our focus off of Christ and onto our circumstances.  No wonder we feel defeated!   This is a wonderful book to help you get back on track and see through Satan’s lies and clearly see God’s Truths. Ms. Gerth does a beautiful job through insights and scriptures to help us refocus and on who we are in Christ. She shows all that we have at our disposal through His power, not only to survive but to come out a victor not a victim! One of the most important aspects of the book was how much scripture she uses to guide you to where you need to be.   Scripture is our ONLY guide. She helps you climb out of a seemingly dark hole and see the courage and strength that is there waiting for you through the Lord.  When difficulties arise, we are attacked on all sides, physically, mentally and emotionally.  The author addresses all of these.  A wonderful book filled with encouragement and hope!  This is one I will keep, read again and again, and use as a reference.  I think it would make an incredible Bible study for an individual or a group! I received this book free from Revell Publishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I loved this book! You're Going To Be Okay is the message my heart needed to hear. Once again, Holley's style is easy to read, easy to process. It is like sitting across her at a table in a quaint little tea house for the afternoon. Her message to women is timeless and perfect ... no matter where you are now - you are going to be okay. Does your heart need to hear that? The book is not a trite answer to the many-faceted problems women face these days - instead it is a hand-held, hug-infested look at how God created us. She covers all aspects of how we process our world and circumstances around us - from the basic brain functions to the ever-complex heart functions. I would recommend this book to all women of all ages. It is powerful and thought- provoking. It is gentle and inspiring. It is incredible. The chapters have places to jot down thoughts, fill in the blanks for personalizing the lessons and spaces for written prayers. It is not a 'how-to' book, but rather a 'let's do'. And why not do it together with a group of women you know well with the Go Deeper guide at the back of the book that works like a book study, taking each chapter and diving into God's word and each other's hearts. (Go Deeper section  can also be done individually - I did!) Definitely check out this book! And if you haven't been introduced to Holley yet, be sure to check out her inspiring websites for a daily dose from a loving friend!

Holley Gerth in her new book, “You’re Going To Be Okay” published by Revell gives us Encouraging Truth Your Heart Needs to Hear, Especially on the Hard Days. From the Back Cover:   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. For every woman who has been disappointed, who has watched a dream disappear, whose life isn’t what she imagined it would be, bestselling author Holley Gerth has a heartfelt message of hope. It is possible to live with joy, resilience, and strength in both the good times and the bad. With her trademark positive encouragement and probing questions for self-reflection, Holley encourages women to spend less of their lives regretting and more of their lives truly living. She shows them how to guard their hearts against despair and look to the future with confidence, remembering that they are part of a greater plan and nothing can stop God’s purposes for them. Ever been mugged?  Maybe not necessarily on the street, though it has happened to some of us, I mean mugged emotionally, spiritually.  You are suddenly knocked down and it seems your dreams are taken from you or, even worse, your future.  When that happens we need someone to tell us we are going to be okay.  Holley Gerth knows this and she is here to tell us this because this is what God is telling us.  In ten chapters Ms. Gerth walks us through the ways we are okay and helps us realize we have more than what we know.  Ms. Gerth states that this book is not for whiners, pessimists or perfectionists.  It is written for people like you and me.  People who have been hit and hit hard and just need to know we are going to make it and we are going to be okay.  If you ever felt that this is what you need to hear then this is the book for you.
