Book Description from

March 1, 2012
Women feel enormous pressure to be perfect. To have the perfect body, to be a perfect woman, to have the perfect career, and to have the perfect attitude. All the time. Under all that pressure and all those expectations are women carrying burdens they were never meant to carry and suppressing the dreams they were always meant to live.

In You're Already Amazing, popular blogger and cofounder of (in)courage helps women understand and embrace the fact that they don't need todo more, be more, and have more--because they're already amazing just the way God created them to be. As a licensed counselor and certified life coach, Holley knows what readers need to hear. Like a heart-to-heart talk over coffee, reading this joy-filled book encourages women to forget the lies and expectations the world feeds them, instead believing that God made them for a purpose and that he loves them right now, at this moment, and always. Holley takes readers on a journey of the heart to discover their strengths and embrace all God created them to be.

My take on this book:
The introduction of this book really grabbed my attention,the statement "you don't have to do more, be more, have more"had me wondering what I might find inside this book. Well what I found was an encouraging, uplifting  message that all women need to read!

There were so many things I enjoyed about this book, from the conversational tone, to the use of personal stories I found this book so easy to relate to. I really warmed to the authors easy style of writing, she makes you feel as if your talking to an old friend.The author reminds us that in God's eyes we are loved, accepted and valued, after all he created us just the way he wanted us to be. I would have to say my favorite chapter had to be "What Does God Want Me To Do With My Life."I always wonder if I am making a difference, and following God's plan, and this chapter helped me with that question.
Written with short chapters and study guides peppered through the book, it's perfect for busy women who need a bit of encouragement. I thought the Go Deeper Guide provided at the back of the book makes this book perfect for group study.Overall a motivational, inspirational book that is easy to connect with, that provides the message that in God's eyes we are Already Amazing.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
