You're Made For A God-Sized Dream by Holley Gerth

This is the second book from Holley Gerth that I am blessed to review. The first was, "You're Already Amazing". (check out my review)

Holley has a gift of making you feel comfortable. She lets us know that we are not alone. In fact, in reading her newest, "You're Made For A God-Sized Dream", I feel as though we are friends. Yes, inspiration from a girlfriend who has been there. Throughout Holley's books, her spirit is contagious. She is that cheerleader you want in your corner.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from Holley:

"God-sized dreams are invitations for you to get on board with him and go places your heart has never imagined. And there's only one way to get there-by being right by his side."

"Every time we choose to listen to love more than fear, our faith grows. We learn to trust more, to see God act in new ways in our lives, to let him take us places beyond where we could have dared to go before. The sound of fear can also be an invitation. It can be a signal that God is asking you to go somewhere new with him, to get outside your comfort zone, to be part of an adventure."

"God-sized dreams are mysterious. We catch a glimpse of where we're headed only to have the vision disappear like a mist on an early morning. God-sized dreams don't cooperate with checklists or agendas. They defy our timing and often our logic. The more we seek to control them, the quicker they slip beyond our grasp. And yet, we can't let them go. We're compelled to continue the pursuit."

This is a book for every woman, daughter and granddaughter. Probably every man in your life should read it too. At the heart of every woman is a dream that God has placed there for us to uncover and for him to gain glory. Great book for a small group study, even a Sunday school class.

This book is jam packed with profound thoughts and encouraging words. One of my favorite chapters was, How to Stop Sabotaging Yourself. Holley reminds us over again that we have a limitless God who loves us. Yes girls, this one is a keeper!

This book was a gift from Revell for my review.
