Book Review: Strong Brave Loved: Empowering Reminders Of Who You Are

From the Back:

Encouragement to live as a woman of confidence and victory

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 anyway. 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 Holley 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.
My Reflections:
This devotional came at the perfect time in my life, God sure does take care of his children. I have immensely enjoyed reading, journaling and growing stronger as I read this book. If you want to give a gift that really will be empowering and encouraging to a woman in your life this my friends would be it!

Holly Gerth is one of my favorite motivational writers, she has a way of bringing you in and gently prying open the tough topics we woman face each day but don't want to explore too deeply. There are 60 short two page topics that end with a prayer and space to write your musings. I found myself pouring out my fears, joys, longing and trials in the journaling section, this seriously was exactly what I needed. 

I will tell you a funny story. When I originally requested this book I thought "Oh yes please!" Holly Gerth, I have to have that! 
However, life threw a few curve balls and for two weeks the book taunted me on the shelf mocking my abilities and self-worth. God won that battle and I finally cracked open the book. I was nourished and renewed within these pages as they pointed me to exactly where I needed to be focusing on God's love, and my Holy confidence began to sprout little tendrils. 

If you are looking for a devotional that will help turn your eyes heavenward this one has just enough depth and the sections are short but impactful, challenging us to fight for who we are in God and what he has for us, everlasting love.
