About the Book
You want to be a woman who looks life in the face and says, “You can’t beat me.” A woman who knows love is a risk and reaches out anyways. A woman who understands kindness takes real courage. Who doesn’t fake it or try to hide her scars. Who fights to believe she is who God says she is and helps others do the same.
In Strong, Brave, Loved, bestselling author Holly Gerth offers you sixty short devotions to empower you to be that kind of woman. It’s simple, personal, and practical, with room for you to journal your own responses and reflections as you learn to live in freedom, hope, and holy courage.
THIS BOOK IS BEAUTIFUL!!! The gold is just gorgeous with the red flowers. I know we shouldn’t judge books by their cover but how can you not when it’s that gorgeous. It’s simple and feminine and just excellently designed. Then you open the book and the “devotionals” are so good too! Now I put devotionals in quotes because they’re not full devotionals in my mind. They’re more encouragement with a little scripture and a prayer thrown in with each passage. I don’t know if I would type this book as a devotional. That said, I love the writing. It’s encouraging. It’s motivating. It’s empowering. I love it. It’s very practical, which is awesome. And it’s relevant. The topics covered are ones women today are hit with from all sides. The questions at the end of each passage are great for reflection and processing where you can apply what you just read to your own life. I found many things I wanted to underline. Many moments where I found myself saying, “YES!” “I need this!” One of my favorite lines came in passage Sixteen. It says, “What we really need from each other is not a pared-down version of ourselves that’s been polished and carefully presented. We need to be true to who we are, to show up as is, because that’s the only way we actually feel less alone.” I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. It’s great. Pick it up and read it often. Your life will be better for it. I received a copy of this book from Revell. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
