About the book

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.

My Thoughts

The title itself reminded me something my husband and I used to say often in the early years of our marriage:

Everything is gonna be all right.

We still say it every once in a while as it has become one of our saying when things are tougher.  So the title attracted me to the book along with the fact that I had reviewed her two previous titles with Revell.

Once again Holley Gerth has found a way to help women to dig out the truth in their lives be writing a jewel of a book that will encourage the reader into seeking what is best for her.   Mind you, the author not only lift up the spirit of the reader but she also pushes you to take the time to think about the true words about yourself.   Here’s the thing – most women will eventually start believing the lies that the enemy wants them to hear.  But deep down, as a child of the Living God we don’t need to take these thoughts for reality because they are false.  Thoughts like “You never do anything right.” or “Nobody wants to spend time with you.”

These thoughts are not from God himself.  With the help of the guidance provided in this book, the reader will dig, search, and discover the truth about herself.   Throughout the book the author has included places for you to ponder and write down answers to specific questions like:

What was the situation you were in when you felt insecure?

What were you afraid would happen?

Why would it matter to you if that did happen?

The questions, if you take the time to answer, is the first step toward healing and learning to hear the truth about yourself.  Also included in this book, is a Go Deeper Guide which allow you as an individual or with a group of other women to study each chapter individually and dig deeper on your own journey.  The author is very encouraging through the pages of this book and only seek that everyone have healthy thoughts about themselves.

I think this is a fabulous book for all women in life as we have a tendency of believing the lies about ourselves.   This book will allow you to regret less and live truthfully.
