Holley Gerth shared about the message of her new book about a year ago as I sat at a table with her some other God-sized dreamers. I remember nodding in agreement that this message needed to be shared. I knew then and still know that laying down perfection at the cross is a necessary message because it’s one my soul needs.
I’ve been journeying away from perfection and toward grace and joy. The process has been like leaving the darkness and walking into the light. What’s been so hard about it all is letting God reshape my natural tendencies and change my expectations. What’s been really encouraging about the whole process is how God intertwines so many books, friendships, conversations, blog posts, songs, and moments to teach me.
I am loved no matter what. There’s nothing I can do to change what Jesus already did for me.
That’s the message Holley shares in her newest book, “You’re Loved No Matter What: Freeing Your Heart from the Need to be Perfect.”
I read the first few chapters in one sitting recently and felt like she was writing for me. But I know I’m not alone in needing this message. It’s the kind of practical wisdom that would thrive in discussion with other women. We can share our struggles and the ways God has redeemed them.
So beginning March 16, I’m going to host an online book study of “You’re Loved No Matter What.” The book officially releases today!
We’ll take the book a chapter at a time as I post discussion questions each Monday. It’ll be a private Facebook group so what you say there is safe within the group. You can join the conversations as your week allows.
While I hope those who commit are invested in sharing and encouraging, I can promise you there will be grace. I believe this book will prompt conversations we as women need to have – with God, with ourselves, and with each other.
Who’s in? Please comment here with your email address and Facebook name (if we aren’t already friends there and you doubt I have your email address) or email me so I can keep you informed and get you added to our group. Meanwhile, please make arrangements to get the book and read the introduction and first chapter by March 16.
