Positive Encouragement for a Negative World

you're okayIf you are sinking under the weight of imperfection and have been disappointed by the events in your life, Holley Gerth‘s encouraging book, “You’re Going to be Okay”, will resonate calm, soothing and comforting words into your life.  Have you spent your life trying to measure up to the impossible ideals you see on Facebook and Pinterest?  Are you pressured by society to be perfect?

Gerth’s book is not just to read.  It is also a workbook to help you work through your emotions, your insecurities, and your doubt.  She uses the wisdom she’s learned through the struggles of trying to live up to an impossible dream of perfection.   Much of what Gerth presents in her book is not original.  We have heard it before, but it’s all in the presentation.  She didn’t write this book to condemn, to frustrate or hinder you.  She doesn’t want to discourage you. She offers real solutions.  The only catch is you have to be honest with yourself and willing to do the work she recommends.

You may discover that you are stronger than you realize and things aren’t as bad as they seem.  You may also find that you are not alone.  This is an excellent resource for young people who are on the brink of discovering who they are and who they want to become.  It is great for those who are older who have struggled their entire lives trying to be perfect only to discover that perfection is impossible.  You can pursue this work alone or with an accountability partner.
