You're Already Amazing
Embracing Who You Are,
Becoming All God Created You to Be
By: Holley Gerth
Far too often, in my Christian walk, I have compared myself to other women. If only I were are outgoing as "so and so" or if only I was as eloquent or "quick on my feet" as her. The comparison game is discouraging and keeps us from focusing on who God created us to be. Holley Gerth's new book, You're Already Amazing, encouraged me to stop the comparison game and to delight in who God uniquely created me to be. It is no accident that I thrive in one-on-one conversations and feel nervous when speaking to a crowd. As Holley shares in You're Already Amazing,
"We often try to force ourselves to be like others or to simply do whatever we're asked. Then we wonder why we feel ineffective and exhausted. Of course, sometimes, we'll need to step outside of those for a special need or season. But knowing how we connect lets us serve in the center of the way God made us."
You're Already Amazing inspires women to find their God-given gifts and strengths to become the woman God created them to be.In this book, Holley shares as a friend and sister-in-Christ. You're Already Amazing is a blessing and an encouragement on the journey.
I am excited that the Bloom Book Club has chosen You're Already Amazing to read as a community. For more details about joining in this book study, visit here.
