What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days {Holley Gerth}

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days {Holley Gerth} | #bookreview #devotion
In this uplifting book, Holley Gerth invites readers to sit down with her to be filled with the strength, peace, and joy that come from God's promises to us. Each of the 52 devotions based on the Psalms will help weary women remember that God is good and we're all in this together. Whether it's a bad hair day or a broken heart, Holley offers hope and encouragement to get us through whatever life brings.

Women need that kind of encouragement because we all have hard days--days that make us want to give up, retreat inside ourselves, and drown our sorrows in a pint of ice cream. And while we may crave all sorts of things to ease the pain we feel in our hearts, what we really need is truth. We need to be confident in God's character and his promises. We need to remember--and celebrate--who he made us to be. And we need exactly the kind of encouragement Holley Gerth loves to offer.

Being a woman is hard y'all. Being a wife and mom is even harder. We all have our tough days. We all have those moments when we feel like total failures and we are messing up the lives of everyone around us.

But then we get reminded that we are so completely wrong. God has this. He created us to be who we are, and He knows we are going to make mistakes. But he still loves us, encourages us, and He always has our back.

That is the message I got throughout this book. This book is full of the encouragement I need as a wife, a mom, a daughter, and a woman. It seemed like whatever I was feeling the past few weeks, I was able to find that topic in this book and get the encouragement I need, and the message I need from God.

And when things get really tough, I just turn to the back cover - my kids drew a picture in my book :)
