You're Going to Be Okay Book Review


 About the Book

Sometimes it feels like life's falling apart at the seams. Sometimes you're completely worn out by stresses that never seem to end. For every woman who has been disappointed, who has watched a dream die, whose life isn't what she imagined it would be, bestselling author Holley Gerth has a heartfelt message of hope--you really "are" going to be okay. And it "is" possible to live with joy, resilience, and strength in both the good times and the bad. In fact, she says, that's what God desires for us.
With her trademark positive encouragement and probing questions for self-reflection, Holley encourages women to spend less of their lives regretting and more of their lives truly living. She shows them how to guard their hearts against despair and look to the future with confidence, remembering that they are part of a greater plan and "nothing "can stop God's purposes for them.

My Review
I had no idea what to expect from this book. While some of it seemed a bit silly or obvious it was all truthful and realistic. I didn't get a life changing perspective but she does remind you to remain joyful throughout life an realize what is actually going on in your head. There are a lot of question and answer sections where the reader can fill in the blanks. I these parts are most effective because it helps get to the heart of whatever the problem is in your life. Holley also has a great sense of humor which I enjoyed throughout the book. 
I rate it four stars.
