As women, we tend to think that if we could only get our act together, life would be perfect. But you're not supposed to be perfect. You're supposed to be human. And humans are messy, flawed, glorious, and deeply loved.
It's time to lay down those unrealistic expectations that exhaust you. It's time to embrace who you are--even the messy parts. It's time to start living fully instead of just trying not to fail.
Let's do this. Together.
How would your life be different if you truly believed you're loved just as you are? Bestselling author Holley Gerth shares how God wants to set our hearts free by revealing the lies we believe as well as the scandalous grace and acceptance offered to us instead. She helps us lay down our unrealistic expectations so we can embrace who God created us to be, pursue his purpose for our lives, and offer others the love we've been freely given.

"If your heart feels entangled by the critical voices of perfectionism, sit down with this book full of encouraging gems of wisdom and let Holley's words guide you to a new beginning, to set your heart free to run in one direction: toward God's love for you."--Bonnie Gray, author of Finding Spiritual Whitespace

I am a huge fan of Holley Gerth's books and her latest, "You're Loved No Matter What," may just be my favorite. Holley has such a way of writing that it is as if she is speaking right to me and having a conversation with me, just a couple of girls sharing their hearts over mugs of coffee. This book focuses on the pressure we feel to be perfect in all areas of our lives and the guilt that results when we fall short in various areas. I love the layout of the book as it is very interactive with self-reflection questions, areas for taking notes in, and ways to apply this to my life. If you have not read any of Holley's books, do not hesitate to and dive right in.
