About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Strong Brave Loved: Empowering Reminders of Who You Really Are by Holley Gerth

Strong, Brave, Loved: Empowering Reminders of Who You Really AreABOUT THE BOOK

Strong, Brave, Loved: Empowering Reminders of Who You Really Are by Holley Gerth

Bestselling author Holley Gerth feels like your best friend, your supportive sister, and your biggest cheerleader. She understands that you want to be a woman who looks life in the face and says, "You can't beat me." A woman who knows love is a risk and reaches out anyway. A woman who understands kindness takes real courage. Who doesn't fake it or try to hide her scars. Who fights to believe she is who God says she is and helps others do the same.

Strong, Brave, Loved offers 60 short devotions to empower you to be that kind of woman. It's simple, personal, and practical, with room for you to journal your own responses and reflections. With these concise and compassionate devotions, Holley leads you on a journey of discovery as you learn to live in freedom, hope, and holy courage.


Holley Gerth is a speaker and author but it is apparent that she is, first of all, a child of God. In the last devotion of this new book, she tells us that we '...all are living a story today. A story crafted and told by the Author of heaven. The star-scatterer. The mountain mover. The water walker. It is a story of being braved and strong and loved. A story of, most of all, love.' (p. 224)

Don't these words make you want to read more? I hope so because it is such a wonderful book! It is very attractive with beautifully illustrated pages, a hardback cover, and a bookmark ribbon but more importantly, the words inside will feed your soul with their encouragement and inspiration. Strong Brave Loved has sixty short devotions that speak to women of all ages and I especially like that each devotion includes God's Word, a short prayer, and space for me to write my personal thoughts and observations.

This book is a perfect addition to your personal devotion time but it would also make a wonderful gift! I highly recommend Strong Brave Loved.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell. A positive review was not required and I received no financial compensation. These are my own opinions.
