You're loved no matter what

You're loved no matter what, by Holly Gerth. This is the third book by Holly Gerth that I've had the pleasure to read. She's a wonderful author and life coach. In this book we hear about how we are so pressured by society, peers, church, etc. to reach some level of perfection. Yet that's the opposite of the grace that God offers us. I love the comparison she made about Eve and us, when Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil to become more like God. How we now try as women to achieve perfectionism or at least the appearance of it in our lives and how that's not so differnt than Eve's goal in the garden. We need to learn to embrace how God created us, to learn to extend grace to ourselves and others. Christ died for us and loves us, no matter what, no matter what we achieve or don't achieve. We don't earn His love, it's already available to us exactly as we are. 
    What a great and timely message for women! There is such a pull as women to get it all right, the heated debates about working moms vs. stay at home moms, is the house clean, etc. women are more than a wife, mother, and a clean house. They are daughters of the living king, with value that's all their own, not related to being a mom or a wife. It's time that women realize who they are in Christ!
     Great book! I'd definitely recommend it!
