If your life isn’t perfect…If you’ve ever been disappointed…If you feel stressed or tired…
This is for you.
You really are going to be okay. And it truly is possible to live with joy, resilience, and strength no matter what life brings. Yes, there will be hurt and hard times. But God wants to help you find ways to survive, grow stronger, and even thrive – no matter what happens
With her trademark positive encouragement and probing questions for self-reflection, bestselling author Holley Gerth encourages you to spend less of your life stressing or regretting and more of your life truly living.
This author is new to me, but by the time I’d read half the book, I felt as though we were old friends. Holley speaks frankly and with humour, and I would love to meet her in person. She addresses many personal issues that can become blockades to joy, and she offers exercises to deal with them in a positive, Godly manner. I appreciated her explanation of the three areas of the brain and how they work to maintain homeostasis. No wonder it is so difficult to make permanent changes in behavior! But we aren’t left wondering how we can ever overcome. Holley is a life coach, and her experience is obvious in her practical encouragement.
I read this book as a download from the publisher in exchange for reviews, but it would be easier to use in hard copy form. It isn’t just a book; You’re Going To Be Okay is actually a workbook. The questions the author asks require mental digging as she leads us into truth about our behaviour and attitudes.
I highly recommend this book and will likely buy copies to give to friends. You’re Going To Be Okay earns five stars.
