  1. I’ve been reading your book, the ebook, and what I’ve learned so far, not perfectly, is when something frustrating happens to me to smile. It feels so much better to me and according to Moses and the Israelites God is happier with my attitude.=)

  2. This book and your messages for women are such an inspirational blessing! Thank you for being brave enough to share it with the world.

  3. Holly,
    While I do not have the book, and I haven’t had the time to sit down at the computer and watch the videos yet, I have been blessed daily by your blogs and thoughts. You have inspired me, and reassured me that I am amazing, I can do things that I didn’t think I could. My God-confidence has grown, and I am a MORE amazing person because of your influence.
    May God bless you!

  4. I believe that since reading your book and going through the study, I have put some new things into practice. I cannot expect anyone to do anything other than please God with their life. I am to have the same goal in life, no matter what I am doing!
    Loved the book and the study!
    Thanks for including me!

  5. Thank you for the encouragement you always bring! Today is another of my frustrating days here at work! Like Donna I’m trying to smile and be content in this trial God is putting me through!

    Your blogs and thoughts always encourage me and I’ve needed tons of that lately! Thanks!

  6. I have truly enjoyed your book. The biggest message that I am taken away from this book is that God made me the way I am. I should love the introvert, one on one friend/person that I am BECAUSE He made me this way. In the past, I would resent that I wasn’t more fun and more outgoing. Not anymore. Thank you for this epiphany.

  7. I so enjoyed your book – and have already passed it on with the promise to get it back so I can reread it. I recently learned that I am truly loved by God. Your book helped me acknowledge my past, gain confidence in the grace, love and forgiveness of Christ and to let the real me show through in my life. Thank you Holley!

  8. At first I questioned whether it was worth buying the book to do this study. I thought it really wouldn’t be something helpful to me right now. I thought I was confident in God’s love and didn’t need any help in that area. But at the last minute I went ahead and purchased it and I am so glad I did! I have gotten so much out of the book, doing the different exercises and seeing that this is how God made me and that is good. Coming up with a LIFE statement was so eye opening, while I do not think I have it totally figured out yet. But realizing it is all about expressing my faith through love is so freeing from thinking I need to do some great thing to make my life matter. I plan on reading through the book again to see what else I can discover about myself. Thank you.

  9. Thanks so much Holley, for putting pen to paper to present this book!

    When we started, I let our Resource Ministry Director know how good it was, so she bought a copy for the church’s resources. Then our Women’s Minister found out about it and now I’m going to lead a discussion group over the summer for our women (and I think there’s two other opportunities for it to be used this fall).

    I’m excited for the information you presented, to get out to women that can benefit from it. YAY for more women to be better equipped with the message that we do not need to be like every other woman to do amazing things.

    Blessings to you, and continued success in your writing, counseling, and life coaching careers….may the work of your hands, and your home, be blessed!!

  10. So I just learned about Bloom today at the (In)courage Meet up and I’m ready to join in! When does the next book study start? I’m so excited! 🙂
