          Holley Gerth isn’t Wonder Woman, but her words certainly carry the power to save the day. In her book, Gerth takes issue with the idea that women must try harder to find joy and purpose in life. Instead, she says there is a much simpler solution: Embrace the fiercehearted woman within.

            With short, essay-like chapters, Gerth shares personal stories about pivotal lessons in her life. Through tales of having to deal with infertility, depression, insecurity, and joy, she paints the portrait of the makings of a fiercehearted woman of God. Her words are raw and dappled with a touch of literary beauty that sparkles like a ray of sunshine from the page. Above all else, every chapter ofFiercehearted is brimming with encouragement.

            For every woman wondering what she’s missing, this book is a must-read. Gerth has harnessed her weaknesses and scars and presented them as a redeemed bouquet of God’s goodness and beauty. She discovered and tapped her inner fierce heartedness, and now she is eager to share with other women how they can do likewise.
