“You’re already amazing.” That’s a tough phrase to grasp, let alone fully believe. Women have great social pressures put on them to be perfect in body and attitude. And with all those expectations, we as women are carrying burdens that we weren’t meant to carry at all and we suppress dreams that we thought we were meant to live.

Sometimes non-fiction books tend to be a little bit on the boring side. I was preparing for that when starting to read this one, only to be blown away by how true and real it was. This was very deep and totally applied to certain points that I am at in my own life right now. Holley speaks of the book as a heart-to-heart talk over coffee, and though I don’t personally drink coffee, that is exactly how it felt. No matter what point you are at in life you need to hear that you are amazing, and know that you aren’t alone in life. Also, in this day where everyone is so focused on perfection in every aspect of life, the words in this book can really help. You don’t have to be perfect, just be the way God has made you. And sometimes that is a struggle but you it can be overcome.
This book is also pretty much made for a small group discussion setting like the Bloom (in)courage Book Club (at incourage.me
), but also in-person studies as well. Though that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t just read it by yourself, too. It’s interactive and engaging and definitely a great addition for your book shelf. It would be one of those great books to keep going back through over and over at different stages of life. Please check it out!
