What's your reaction when someone you care about hurts you? Do you bury the pain and keep smiling? Author Holley Gerth shares from her own journey of learning to make peace with others by doing the hard thing, the brave thing, and sharing her concerns. Few of us enjoy conflict, but growing into the fullness of who Jesus made us to be often requires strength and vulnerability. As you read FierceHearted, you'll discover that with God's help you can live fully and love bravely every day.
Noteworthy: This author is one of a special group of women who writes for (in)courage, the popular online friendship community. Every day they take turns pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their every day, gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives.

Becky3 Stars Out Of 5FierceheartedDecember 19, 2017BeckyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Im trying to make it more of a point to read more non-fiction. Sometimes I struggle when it comes to Christian Living because Im not a huge fan of the feel good and very little Scripture (if any at all) kind of read. Ive been hearing fantastic things about Holley Gerth so I decided to check out Fiercehearted.
Holley Gerth is raw, genuine, and pours her out into this book making it vulnerable and real. She writes in a way that it feels as if youre sitting with her in a coffee shop drinking coffee with her. She uses stories from her own personal experiences to show truths that every woman knows but sometimes struggle with. She shows that were all imperfect and falls short. Its as if she gets it. Her vulnerability will encourage her readers to want to be more open with others. Its not because were not pretty enough, good enough, or any of that but because as believers, we belong to God. This is a book of hope.
The chapters are super short which I think were the perfect length. Whether youre busy and only feel like reading a chapter or two when you can or you just feel like reading several chapters. There are discussion questions at the back of the book so you can easily use it for a book club. There is some Scripture, but not as much as I would have liked.
It is a book that you can learn a lot from and will encourage women everywhere. Recommended.

KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fiercely GoodNovember 23, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Intense. Sincere. Full of laughter and tears. Holley Gerth has a way of writing the reader into the conversation so it feels like you're sitting across the table in some cozy cafe as you share your story with the best listener in the world. She writes with the kind of heart and candor that has the power to encourage change.
A much needed change where I am concerned. Because -- true confession time -- I'm a scaredy-cat. I've read the fictional accounts of fiercehearted heroines and basked in their glory while knowing deep down that I could never live as fully or bravely. But then Ms. Gerth comes along and starts changing my mind. I start thinking that maybe, just maybe, I could become the fiercehearted heroine of my own story.
Her words are sweet and smooth and encouraging as she candidly bears her soul and invites me to do the same. As I dig deep I find a hidden core of fierceness I didn't know was there. I realize that I can be that woman -- the kind *"who defends like a warrior and weeps like a girl." And I suddenly want to *"chase Jesus with a tender, world-changing wildness." And a glorious bubble of joy bursts from deep within me and I'm suddenly aware of all kinds of possibilities. So, yeah, that's the kind of impact this book has made on me.

Willo5 Stars Out Of 5FierceHeartedNovember 15, 2017WilloQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0FIERCE HEARTED : Live fully, love bravely
By Holley Gerth
Been waiting to review this book for some time. Holleys journey could be every womans journey. She has a way of sharing her story so you think its you writing her bookor you could have if you were that gifted. Im not.
I have watched Holley since she was a writer for Dayspring cards. She has a huge following also on (in)courage.me. Her words take you into her heart as she honestly tells of her hard things as well as Gods gentle answers. This young woman may just mentor a generation of seeking women. When one asks, Isnt there something?..... She answers:
I think later of how what we so often need is not a big break but to be broken. To come to the place where we are disappointed by all weve been chasing, when were humbled and exhausted, hungry and fed up with ourselves..only thenhands emptyto be truly filled.
You might just wear out 2 highlighters on these pages. Her stories are amazing.
Trisha Goddard5 Stars Out Of 5For women of all ages - a challenge to be Fierce-Hearted: Live Fully, Love Bravely!November 15, 2017Trisha GoddardQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"FierceHearted: Live Fully, Love Bravely" by Holley Gerth challenges women to truly live, to love without restrictions. She comes alongside as a mentor sharing her personal stories of how each of us were created by God for a unique purpose.
Holley says, "A fierce hearted woman looks life in the face and says, "You can't beat me; [God] offers what she longs for most - for Him to tell her who she really is, to whisper in her ear that He has made her funny and wise and strong and brave." I am learning that a fierce-hearted woman is one who takes steps to face some of her fears by stepping out in courage, to intentionally move beyond and be taken forward, to walk out her faith, and to abide in Him.
The whole book is awesome, and I have way too many favorite sections of the book to share with you here. The one section that stands out the most to me right now is when Holley talks about "FOMO" (fear of missing out). She says, "I have worried about what I might miss out on if I don't hold on to everything. But I have never thought about the risk - the one that's actually much more likely to happen - and that's if I live that way, I will certainly miss out on at least some of what's right in front of me." I know that my email inbox, social media posts, and websites I visit "scream" DO NOT MISS OUT. Yet I came to a point a couple of months ago, where I realized that I was NOT MISSING OUT (or "NMO" as my mind calls it). I purposefully cut down my social media platforms to bare bones and became intentional on enjoying the here and now, especially those who God has put into my path. Because as Holley says, "I do not want to come to the end of my life and say, "I didn't miss out on anything." What I'm aiming to say is, "I missed out on exactly the right things"."
"FierceHearted: Live Fully, Love Bravely" is a book that encourages and challenges you and me, women of God, to be fierce-hearted women. There are times that Holley makes you laugh and other times, where you lean in to hear and ponder the Biblical truth. It is a book for women of all ages, and I personally can't wait for my teenage daughter to read it, because Holley has become one of her favorite authors and mentors.
Girlfriends, you and I can become fierce-hearted women, who live fully and love bravely. How? Holley says, "Stay close to the Maker; let the transforming come and do not be afraid of it." I highly recommend this book!
I received a complimentary review copy by the publisher. This review is my honest opinion.
AmyL5 Stars Out Of 5FierceheartedNovember 8, 2017AmyLQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What I have come to greatly appreciate are people that are gently guiding me to think more for myself. To think about who God is and how it impacts my life. As I sat down to read Fiercehearted, I anticipated another prescriptive book telling me how to live my life. What I should have remembered from going through theYou're Already Amazing study, also by Holley Gerth, is that nothing about Gerth's writing is entirely prescriptive.
Fierceheartedtakes you on Gerth's journey towards learning to live fully and love bravely. It was like sitting across the table from a dear friend. You're sitting and listening to Gerth tell you of the things she's come to learn and believe over the years. The anecdotal tales and reveal a little more about God's character. And personal stories of heartache that end up in redemption. The reminder that our story doesn't always look the way we think it will. But there can be joy in the end.
There was a hope in these pages, a reminder that we can learn through story. We don't need everything to be spelled out for us. We can learn to embrace God in the small moments of regular life. Of pushing through the pain to review the story on the other side.Fiercehearted reminds us that we are strong because of God inside of us. We are invited to rethink the way we've always done things. We're reminded that sometimes faith requires living our lives a little bit differently.
It's a beautiful reminder to me that we all have a beautiful story. Rather than living someone else's story, we can be fiercehearted when we embrace the story we've been given.
