Ever feel the pressure to be perfect?

Look perfect.

Have a perfect marriage.

And perfectly behaved children.

A perfect house anyone?

How about a perfect job, extended family or past?

In the best-selling book You’re Already Amazing, popular blogger and cofounder of (in)courage Holley Gerth helps women understand and embrace the fact that they don’t need to do more, be more, and have more–because they’re already amazing just the way God created them to be.

As a licensed counselor and certified life coach, she knows what readers need to hear.

Like a heart-to-heart talk over coffee, reading this joy-filled book encourages women to forget the lies and expectations the world feeds them, instead believing that God made them for a purpose and that he loves them right now, at this moment, and always.

Holley takes readers on a journey of the heart to discover their strengths and embrace all God created them to be.

This fabulous author and regular girlfriend has agreed to give away a copy of her encouraging book to one of you who comments on this post. And you may also pick one item from the Holley collection from Day Spring. Click here to see it.

Tell us this, in what area of life do you most feel the pressure to be perfect?

Winner announced Monday.

  • I would say in my relationships with others. I don’t want to disappoint them and want to please too much. I would love to read your new book!!

  • What a timely piece for me to read today! I’ve been feeling very defeated and run down in all areas of life lately; being a mom, wife, friend, daughter, homemaker, etc. It’s so overwhelming and easy to look around and feel as though everyone is doing everything better. It’s nice to feel I’m not alone in this feeling!!

  • It depends who I am with or having over what I have or need to be perfect. Sometimes it needs to be the perfect home, which is. It always impossible. Sometimes I need to be the perfect one which is also, always impossible.. The pressure always comes from me but the need to be perfect is very real!

  • Not sure if this is to late or not! I feel the most pressure to be the perfect homeschooler. Despite the fact we know the is exactly God’s will, the pressure from family who think our kids should be in public school can be overwhelming.

  • I feel the pressure to be perfect the most with what I say. I tend to lose control when it comes to my words and then I spend days, even weeks, months or years reliving what I said and regretting it. There are things that I have said when I was a young girl that I still remember and feel bad about. Just about everyday I say something to my children or to a friend that afterward I think was terrible (and really sometimes it isn’t) Or I regret the things I didn’t say. So I will dwell on what I should’ve said instead.

    It’s a terrible cycle.
