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. If you read the (in)courage blog online, then you'll be sure to enjoy this title.

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.

Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Embrace Fiercehearted LivingNovember 6, 2017Michele MorinWarren, MaineAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Fiercehearted come in all shapes and sizes on this day, and their beautiful faces circle the table from all ages and stages of life. A gray-haired woman sips orange soda facing a 96 year-old faith warrior who prays fiery gospel truth over our meal. Our hostess chows down at one end of the table, mounding up joy like the whipped cream on her brownie pudding cake as if the cancer that has dogged her steps for ten years were only a minor inconvenience. A missionary on home assignment contemplates aloud the challenges of living on both sides of an ocean, but its clear that she is among the company who have borne seed with tears but now rejoice over a harvest.
In her manifesto scribbled in the dim light of an airplane seat, Holley Gerth has drawn the boundaries wide and grace-filled for who gets to wear the the name Fiercehearted, and her words have found their way into a book she never intended to write.
When Holley disembarked from that plane, she walked away from unhealthy peace-keeping behaviors, signed up for counseling, and committed herself to the brave, hard thing of acknowledging and dealing with conflict in healthier, peace-making ways. For her, that was Step 1 of learning to take grace not just for salvation, but also for making a way through a life, lived fully.
Fiercehearted is a series of essays devoted to one womans journey of learning to love her successes and her failures by grace alone. Digging into its pages like a prospector, I collected bright nuggets for the reader who has become tired of feeling controlled by fear, of living alone with her imperfections, and of being shackled to continual striving. Hear and believe these gentle reminders that God is tender toward your brokenness and stands ready to cover you all over with His righteousness:
If rules and systems for prayer dont help you, let them go!
I love my husband very much, but if someone gave me all kinds of rules for how I had to talk to him, it would stress me out and shut me up. I would become focused on my performance instead of our connection. (72)
Stop imagining that you can somehow control how other people will respond.
Theres no escape hatch from being an opinionated human surrounded by opinionated humans. (90)
The church is an appropriate place for freedom and for fun.
[W]e can sometimes intellectualize faith to the point where learning takes the place of living. . . We are not just minds. . . . We want to feel fully alive.
Holley invites readers to embrace freedom in Christ without fear; to sing from the depths of our hearts and our lungs; to laugh together and to forget about how important we are; to enter into joyful celebration. Or even to enter into a crazy photo booth at a church celebration!
The true gift of fiercehearted living is the freedom to admit to imperfection, to accept it in those we love, and to live genuine, messy, and imperfect life in community.
[S]ometimes its inconvenient and annoying and downright exasperating to be human. But its what weve got to work with. So perhaps one favor we can do for each other is to not believe anyone has it all together . . .In other words, we all need more kindness than it seems. (124)
Holleys words have tumbled onto the page at just the right time for me. Coming down the home stretch on raising a family of boys, Im thankful for a new baby granddaughter who will need to see what strong looks like. There will come a day (sooner than I can imagine!) when shell need to swap stories about brave faith and audacious ministry and shell realize that Bams house is never as clean as shed like it to be. Turning the last page, Im praying for another generation of fiercehearted women who realize that God has already equipped them with everything they need for a life of living fully and loving bravely.

Jen5 Stars Out Of 5Like chatting with a friend or big sisterNovember 2, 2017JenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Fiercehearted: Live Fully, Love Bravely by Holley Gerth is one of the best books I've read this year. When I first saw it, I couldn't wait to read it, and I knew I would love it from the first page. The chapters are short, only a few pages, and feel like conversations with a friend or a big sister as she tells you about her struggles, her joys, and the things she's learned. There so much to take in from this book, I know I'll be reading it again to soak it in more!
Something that really resonated with me about the message of being fiercehearted is that you don't have to do something huge or extraordinary. It's all about loving the people around you, even when it hurts, and God giving you strength, even in your weaknesses. It's about the small choices we can make every day to become the women we were meant to be, women who are more like Jesus.
I really enjoyed the whole book, but I'd have to say that chapter 15 is one of my favorite chapters. These lines kind of summed up the book for me: "A full life and life to the full are two very different things. One is about grasping, the other is about receiving, One is about cramming in, the other is about room to breathe. One is about striving, the other is about trust. One is about control, the other is about letting go -- sometimes for a moment and sometimes for always."
With Christmas coming up, this book would be a great present for yourself ;) or for any of the women in your life! Moms, sisters, aunts, friends - I think we could all use a little encouragement to be fiercehearted.
