Let’s Dare to Believe We’re Already Amazing {Book Club – Introduction}

LifeGrowth Book Club with Holley Gerth

Five years ago I had the privilege of listening to the hearts of women as a counselor. Their concerns varied but I heard the same words again and again: “I’m not enough,” “I don’t have anything to offer,” “I’m tired of trying so hard.” And I found myself leaning in and saying one sentence over and over: You’re already amazing.

I soon found myself repeating that phrase to friends over coffee, those who left comments on my blog and, yes, to the woman who looked back at me in the mirror each morning. At first it seemed quite scandalous–were we even allowed to believe we’re already amazing?

But over the next few months, God took me on a journey that revealed His heart for His daughters. I realized He wants us to embrace who we are and become all He created us to be. He doesn’t want us to live worn-out, weary lives where we continually feel like we’re not enough. Knowing who we are leads to praise not to pride–and it makes us dangerous women for the Kingdom of God.

I praise you because you made me in an amazing and wonderful way. What you have done is wonderful. I know this very well. {Ps. 139:14 NCV}

Because I wanted more women to experience this heart-freeing truth, I shared this vision with Revell and we became publishing partners. In March 2012 You’re Already Amazing the book released and since then almost 100,000 women have read the message that started as a whisper from Jesus in the quiet place of my heart. Now that’s amazing!

As women engaged with the book, I found they wanted to go deeper and have even more tools as well as resources. I decided it was time to not just be the friend over coffee but also a life coach who would walk with them every step of the way. So I created the You’re Already Amazing LifeGrowth Guide. And now another one of my dreams is coming true–a book club to go through it with you!

I believe in the power of this message to transform lives and hearts because I’ve seen it happen and I’ve experienced it personally. I want every woman to know her worth, take her place in the body of Christ and experience life to the full. I want that for YOU. I hope our time together will lead you into that and much more.

Here’s how the book club will work:

Every Monday there will be a book club post right here. If you want to make sure not to miss a post, you can subscribe by email. We’ll cover one session a week. You’ll be able to read new content from me, leave comments with your thoughts, be part of giveaways and much more! {You can also join the book club list for a special printable!}

If you haven’t gotten your book yet there’s still time before we do Session One next week. Find it here. {You’ll be able to read a free excerpt and watch the promo video when you click that link too.} All the posts will also be archived on the book club page. So you can go through them on your own anytime if you’re reading this after the book club started.

There’s also much more for you on the You’re Already Amazing LifeGrowth Guide page.


Discussion: To kick off our book club let’s share a bit about who we are! You can leave a comment sharing your name (first name only is fine), your favorite dessert and whether you prefer coffee or tea. If you share this post and say you did in your comment then you will also be entered to win this God’s Heart for You necklace from my collection on DaySpring! {Subscribers, click here to come to the blog and leave your comment.}
