Book Review - Promises from God for Life's Hard Moments and companion Journal


We all face moments of stress, discouragement and uncertainty in life.  In those times, we need reassurance that there is hoope, that we are loved, and that we will make it through whatever comes our way.

God offers all of this to each of us through the promises in His Word. Here you will find fifty-two of those promises along with prayers and encouraging quotes from beloved bestselling author, Holley Gerth.


Holley Gerth is a bestselling author of several books including You're Already Amazing. She is a counselor and life coach, as well as a cofounder of (in) Her personal site has almost 40,000 subscribers. She's partnered with daySpring for twenty years and written more than 2,000 greeting cards and gift products.  Find her at


This devotional is so beautiful, inspirational and encouraging. I felt like the each and every word was a balm to my heart.

I love that Holley covers so many topics that concern us in our daily lives. Anxiety, comparison, depression, heartbreak, rejection and worry are just a few of the things that are focused on. I love that if I'm having an issue with something, more than likely, this book is going to guide me through Scripture and Holley's wise words to give me direction.

Each devotion starts with a topic, a Scripture and a beautiful prayer then goes into the devotion based on the topic. They are short devotions but they are comforting and wise. I came away from each one feeling like I knew God in a more intimate way and knowing that God loves me beyond measure. That's a great thing!

The devotion also has beautiful artwork that is a feast for the eyes. I love books that give us beauty with graphics and words.

The companion journal is so lovely with lots of blank pages for your thoughts and prayers. It also has a lot of the artwork that matches the devotional  throughout that make this journal just gorgeous! Scriptures at the bottom of some of the pages are a reminder of God's Word. This is one of the most beautiful journals I've ever seen!

Here are some inside pages of the devotional:

This is one of the pages of artwork in the journal. It's just gorgeous!

These two books would make a wonderful Christmas present or a special gift anytime. They are books that will bring hope and comfort into your daily life and allow you to write your own words and thoughts as you read the devotional and your Bible. I absolutely love them!
