Hello I'm Ori, Nigerian American lifestyle blogger and career consultant encouraging you to live boldly. Be original. 

You're already amazing

This book was a gift from a close friend, and I wasn't familiar with the author Holley Gerth, but I really enjoyed her writing. Reading this book feels like sitting down with an older, wise woman who gives you a lot of good advice. The book is written to young ladies, or ladies in general, as a reminder of how amazing we are. In the chapters, Holley answers common question that most women worry about like 'why is it so hard to believe I'm amazing', 'what does God want me to do with my life' and 'what are my next steps'. This book gives you a hand full of good reminders of a woman's worth, and God given purpose. It felt a little cheesy to me at times, but you are never too grown to be reminded of how Amazing you are, so I recommend you check it out.

 

 

“Your choice of what is important will shape your soul. We won't be accountable for how much we have done, but how much we have done of what He asked us to do”. You have a gift to offer the world, a calling only you can fulfill, a race only you can run. Throw off everything that hinders and move forward in all God has for you. - pg. 110

 

Dare to embrace who you are. Dare to do those weird things you do. Dare to trust God's whispers into your life more than the demands of the world around you about the 'right way'. You have the Holy Spirit within you, and he will show you what you need to change in a way that;s gentle, life giving, and affirming. - pg. 111


Here's the good news: God has a journey for your life. It looks different than anyone else's. The road He's carved out for you is yours alone. It's always the road less traveled because you're the only one who is ever going to walk it. - pg. 43

You are of incredible worth to the kingdom. Dare to be who you are, who God created you to be
— pg. 87

 

Ladies, I know none of us like this, but it's just got to be said: sometimes it's just not time yet. When this happens in our lives, the enemy tries to slip in a tell us all sorts of nonsense. For example 'if you were a better person, then this would have worked out by now'.

 

He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus
— Philippians 1:6

The world needs you as a woman to do what only you can do, to love the way only you can love, to offer what you have to share. - pg. 64

 

Some people in our lives can't or won't treasure our hearts. In those cases, it's okay to limit how we share ourselves with them. - pg. 69
