Wonderful! 'Fiercehearted' - by Holley Gerth

Cover Art

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 review:

This is a wonderful book with great wisdom and vulnerability.  Holley really opens up about her struggles with depression, anxiety, perfectionism and fear.  I love her wit as she puts a funny spin on things and her humor as she shares true stories of embarrassing things she's done or had happen to her.  This book had me laughing one minute and crying the next.  I've read a couple of her other books but none have been so personal or touched me this much.  I love that she talked about comparison and how we can see other people and think they have it better but we don't really know what's going on in their lives.  Everyone has struggles and things they would like to change.  She shares about her miscarriage and how they ended up adopting an adult!  That was an amazing story.  She talks about grace and how she tries so hard sometimes, forgetting that it's by grace alone Jesus saves us.  She used to think that famous Christians, such as singers or authors, were perfect and didn't struggle with anything but she's learning we're all broken and we all need grace.  There was just so many other stories where I felt I learned something or that reminded me of some truth.  There's a wonderful quote at the beginning of each chapter and discussion questions at the end of the book.  I feel so encouraged and like I just got done having coffee with a good friend.  I also feel like I've joined a sisterhood who will encourage each other as we face struggles in life or it's reminded me that that's what women could be for each other!  I think every teen and woman should read this book!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
