But you’re not supposed to be perfect.
You’re supposed to be human.
And humans are messy, flawed, glorious, and deeply loved.
It’s time to lay down those unrealistic expectations that exhaust you.
It’s time to embrace who you are–even the messy parts.
It’s time to start living fully instead of just trying not to fail.
Let’s do this. Together…

I love Holley Gerth and her books so much and was thrilled to be able to get a copy of “You’re Loved No Matter What”.
Thinking that I wasn’t one of those people who struggle with the pressure of perfection, I thought there would still be some things I could learn and glean from this book. But as I began to read, the pages were speaking straight into my heart. You see, the problem was I was really blinded to my own struggle with “perfection” and people-pleasing.
Holley’s book really helped me see the areas where I was holding back because of my fear of failure….’if I can’t measure up, why even try?!’.
It also showed me all of the reasons striving for perfection really sells us short and doesn’t allow us to come to the realization that God loves us in spite of our mess-ups and shortcomings.
I absolutely loved the final chapter and the list of “If You Try To Be Perfect”‘s!
The book also includes a Go Deeper Guide to be used on your own or in a group study setting.
*****5/5 STARS- FABULOUS!!! A MUST-READ!*****
