You’re Going to Be Okay: Review and Giveaway

It’s Day 2 of my birthday week and do I have a special gift for you!!  One of you will get an extra special gift; you will get this amazing book in your hands!

Today is another birthday of sorts.  Holley Gerth’s new book “You’re Going to Be Okay – Encouraging Truth Your Heart Needs to Hear, Especially on the Hard Days” releases today!  



Holley’s heart speaks loudly to you and her wisdom gently guides you to dispelling the lies we tell ourselves.  Through scripture and story we come to see that our emotions and circumstances are merely where we are, not who we are.

Through the renewing of our mind (Romans 12:2) and the guarding of our hearts (Proverbs 4:23) we live lives that, though they are hard, are not self-sabotaging.  When we take every thought captive we are able to retrain our thought patterns into a new way of thinking that isn’t controlled by our instinctive emotions. 

You are going to want to have this on hand for when the road gets bumpy and the voice in your head is a little louder than the truth in your heart.  You may even want to have a few on hand to share with someone you know is going through a difficult season.  There are simple exercises throughout that will open your eyes to the tricks you didn’t even know you were falling for.  What a gift!

Now for the second gift.  The amazing lovelies at Dayspring are generously giving a copy of “You’re going to Be Okay” to one of you.  Simply enter below.   Seriously, though, you are going to want to buy at least one copy of this to have at the ready to give away.

What scripture most encourages you as truth when the voices in our head become loud?


Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this book for review.  However, all opinions are my own.  This title from Revell is available for purchase now at your favorite bookseller.  This post contains affiliate links.

  2. Love this from 2 Corinthians 4: For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

    Happy birthday week!

    1. That is such a good one!! Love the idea that the eternal glory is so heavy that it makes our heaviest burden or trouble seem light in comparison. Thank you!!

  3. Love this... and it's on my wish list too! (I just can't justify buying any more books - I've barely opened the stack we got from Allume?) One of my fav verses to remind myself of when I am in the midst of confusion is found in Jeremiah. (33:3)

    ‘Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

    Such a reminder to pray and listen!
    Happy Birthday - and how much do I love that you celebrate all week long?

    1. Karrilee, that verse was just used in my Bible study group today right about the same time you wrote it here. I think there's a message in that for me today. Thank you!!

  4. Hmmm…The one in Ezekiel about God giving us a new heart to replace our heart of stone. I like to think of that one when my mind tells me 'you'll never change.'

    1. Oh, Paula, that's a good one. I've never thought to use it as an offensive weapon against those crazy lies in my head. Excellent!! (I almost called you Jane - ha!)

  5. "And I will always be with you, until the very end of the age." Jesus is my constant companion. Never will He leave me. No matter what.

    1. No matter what is one of my favorite phrases, I say it to my little guy every day. I know that Jesus will keep that promise even if I can't.

  7. "Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9 I believe "wherever" includes the scary places our minds take us. He is there too!

    1. I was just thinking about this earlier this morning. I love how this is repeated over and over again. I also love how God begins "Have I not commanded you?" Such a treat to talk to you today!

    2. Yes, God feels so strongly about us not being afraid that He commanded us not to! A long overdue treat to talk to you today, birthday girl! Enjoy that cheesecake!
