Review: You're Loved No Matter What by:Holley Gerth

You're Loved No Matter What: Freeing Your Heart from the Need to Be Perfect
About the Book:
How would your life be different if you truly believed you're loved just as you are?" Holley Gerth poses this compelling question at the start of her latest book. As someone who has connected with thousands of women, Holley has seen the dangers of becoming trapped by impossible standards of beauty, achievement, and even spirituality. We believe if only we were "perfect" we could beat our depression, banish anxiety, and develop the relationships we long for most. Holley shares how God wants to set the hearts of women free by revealing the lies we believe and the scandalous grace and acceptance offered to us instead. When we know we're truly loved, the response is to love in return--and that changes everything.
Bestselling author and every woman's best friend, Holley Gerth helps women lay down their unrealistic expectations so they can embrace who God created them to be, pursue his purpose for their lives, and offer the love they've been freely given.

My Review:
 How would it feel in this life, to believe what God thinks of us? How different would we all feel and more importantly how would we see others? Pursuing what God has chosen for us without restraint. It is hard in a world full of sin to stay so focused on out God given destinies, isn't it? But yet that is what we are called to do.

 Holley Gerth is the perfect person to help lead us down a path of doing just that. She is a great encourager! Being trapped in a world that holds us to some far reaching goals isn't so great sometimes. In fact, it is downright wearisome. We are called to be the best wives and mothers in a world that is set to tear apart our children. Some of us are called to do whatever it takes for our families all the while looking as perfect as can be. It is hard on a good day!?

 Staying focused on God and the love that He shared with us by placing His son on the cross, is our goal. We must see ourselves and others the way He sees them. It is a life changing moment when we are able to do just that. God wants that for us as well. The struggle is there and we all feel it---to be perfect. But it is only when we stop growing, stop moving that we ultimately fail to show others the Christ in us!
