Review

How often do you read a book that changes your life?

Whenever I read a book that turns my thinking around in a complete 180, I give it five stars. This is one of those books.

The truths in You’re Already Amazing are exactly what my heart needed to hear. Holley’s words of encouragement are perfect for me because they speak to exactly who I am.

I never thought I was amazing. I thought it would be arrogant to think that. This book made me realize that my worth and identity comes not from me but from God, and what He did for me. That puts everything in a whole new perspective.

Reading this book has brought about a new way of thinking and enabled me to go forward boldly and freely, though of course I still struggle every day with allowing my heart to accept these truths.

You’re Already Amazing is beautifully written and would be excellent reading for all women, though some might benefit from it far more than others due to differing personalities. Just asking what you think of yourself might be a clue to whether you would find encouragement from this book.

I recommend this to:

  • Women.

Quotes

• I know what it’s like to stare at the ceiling in the middle of the night and ask hard questions with few answers…I know what it’s like to wrestle with insecurity, guilt, and impossible standards of my own making.

• When you attack yourself, you side with the enemy. God is always for you—that means you can be too.

• I think the enemy tricks us into believing we are not enough because he knows if we discover the truth, we’ll be unstoppable.

• You are of infinite value, and no one can take your place. You’re our one shot at what you have to offer.
