"This book is, quite simply, brilliant. With fascinating research, vivid storytelling, and refreshing honesty, Cheri Gregory and Denise Hughes have written a book that could truly be life-changing. Their insights were both informative and surprising. And readers will love the spot-on reminders that God absolutely knew what He was doing when He created sensitive and strong people. If you have ever been called sensitive, and if youve ever felt defective because of it, this empowering book is a must read."
Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of Its All Under Control and The Happiness Dare

"Im thrilled to finally have a biblically grounded book I can give someone who is an HSP or who loves an HSP, confident that theyll find solid information, practical guidance, and a new sense of freedom and acceptance as they no-doubtedly inhale this amazing resource."
Kathi Lipp, bestselling author and speaker
"As an HSP I appreciate that Denise and Cheri go beyond biology and address every part of who we arepsychological, emotional, social, and most of all, spiritual. It's powerful to know God made HSPs intentionally and with a purpose."
Holley Gerth, counselor, life coach, and bestselling author of You're Already Amazing
"If you are an HSP, this book is a must-read. Not only will it help you feel less alone, but it will also give you practical tools, suggestions, and encouragement to thrive as a highly sensitive person."
Crystal Paine, New York Times bestselling author, founder of MoneySavingMom.com, and host of The Crystal Paine Show
"Sensitive and Strong is a gem of a resource for those of us who God wired as highly sensitive. Reading Cheri and Denises honest stories and gentle wisdom feels like sitting with two empathetic mentors and realizing, finally, women who get it and are setting examples that I want to follow. This is a book that I plan to keep within reach for its practical tools and godly perspective on living as a healthy HSP."
Jeanette Hanscome, author of Suddenly Single Mom
"Sensitive and Strong is a must-read for mentors for two reasons. First, since one in five people are Highly Sensitive People (HSP), every mentor must know how to help an HSP choose to thrive instead of retreating into their HSP characteristics. Second, the most effective mentors are HSPs who have learned to look in, look up, and look out. As a fellow HSP and mentor, this book is a transformational handbook specifically for HSPs who want to cultivate a growth mindset, recognize their superpower(s), and serve God with their inherent gifting."
Chris Moss, author, speaker, and founder of Mentor Prep Academy
"In a culture where sensitivity is synonymous with weakness, Sensitive and Strong is the battle cry of the deep feeler. The empathy and honest revelation within these pages allowed me to discover the strength in my own reactivity and embrace my natural wiring as a gift from God. Cheri and Denise will help you to shed shame, deconstruct the myths of high sensitivity, and celebrate your super power."
