First Line Fridays: Strong Brave Loved by Holley Gerth

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby book.

Today I'm sharing the first lines from Stong Brave Loved by Holley Gerth:

"If you ever get a little tired of life's battles, this is for you."

Have you read this book? It's one of the best devotionals I read this year. Find out why in my review.

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!

About the Book:

Encouragement to live as a woman of confidence and victory.

You want to be a woman who looks life in the face and says, "You can't beat me." A woman who knows love is a risk and reaches out anyway. A woman who understands kindness takes real courage. Who doesn't fake it or try to hide her scars. Who fights to believe she is who God says she is and helps others do the same.

In Strong, Brave, Loved, bestselling author Holley Gerth offers you sixty short devotions to empower you to be that kind of woman. It's simple, personal, and practical, with room for you to journal your own responses and reflections as you learn to live in freedom, hope, and holy courage.

  1. I've really enjoyed a couple of Holley Gerth's other books, but I haven't read this one yet!

    I'm currently reading Royally Yours, the Christmas novella collection by Melissa Tagg, Betsy St. Amant, Liz Johnson, and Ashley Clark. Here's the first line (from One Royal Christmas by Melissa Tagg): "Jonah Davies' signature on the document spread before him could change the course of a nation."

    Happy weekend and happy reading!

    1. This was my second Holley Gerth book and it was amazing! Have a great weekend!

  2. Happy Saturday!

    Yesterday on my blog I shared the first two lines from Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar. I'm currently starting The Dating Charade by Melissa Ferguson so I'll share from there.

    "If one was going to RIP one's toes into the murky, pestilential waters of online dating, an escape plan was critical."

    Hope you're having a good weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ“–

  3. I’m sharing the first line of Chapter 5 in Echoes Among The Stones by Jaime Jo Wright (since others also chose this book today) :
    It was a cavern of hollow memories that ricocheted off dark walls, repeating themselves over and over until Imogene wished to clap her hands over her ears and scream the remembrances into silence.
