"You're Going To Be Okay" {a review}

I am truly honored to say that the amazing Holley Gerth is a friend and mentor of mine. She is of course amazing and one of the sweetest, honest, lovely people in the world. But before I met Holley, she was one of my favorite authors. It started with You're Already Amazing: Embracing Who You Are, Becoming All God Created You to Be, it continued with You're Made for a God-Sized Dream: Opening the Door to All God Has for You, and it keeps going with You're Going to Be Okay: Encouraging Truth Your Heart Needs to Hear, Especially on the Hard Days.

In Holley's latest book, "You're Going to be Okay", she addresses the hard times in our lives. I can tell you that reading this book is just like having Holley in the room talking to you and helping you through whatever is going on. In the last year, I have actually heard a lot of this from Holley. In a very real, very loving, very encouraging way, Holley reminds you that no matter what, God is there. God didn't leave you. And most of all, because of God, you can do this. You will be okay. Circumstances don't define you. They change but you will will be okay through all of this. On page 16, Holley says, 

"Your circumstances may change, but who you truly are remains forever the same. Your identity is eternally secure in Christ."

I am seriously considering writing that one phrase on several surfaces in my home just as a reminder. I will be okay. That no matter what is going on in my life, God and Jesus have this- I will be okay. 

I want you to have these words for yourself. I want everyone to have Holley's words in their lives. I really urge you to go and buy this book today. 

**I received a copy of this book through Revelll publishers in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own. 

Oh and just for you. This is Holley and I at Allume 2013. We are on the last day of Allume and I am exhausted but Holley looks amazing.
