ABOUT THE BOOK
When referenced in the scriptures, the word holy means to "set apart for a sacred purpose." It is a description all women who seek to follow Christ want to embody—but the struggle between the ideal of a holy life and reality can seem far apart. In Holy As You Are, best-selling author Christie Gardiner seeks to close the gap reminding women of the holy attributes they already possess and how they can accomplish extraordinary ordinary things that will forever change the landscape and heart-scape of their world.
With a wealth of spiritual guidance and upbeat wisdom that doesn't shy away from difficult topics, this inspired volume challenges readers to look at their tragedies and triumphs and everything in between as sacred opportunities to choose holiness. What if ordinary is extraordinary? What if you are Holy As You Are?
In this inspirational book for Latter-day Saint women, Christie Gardiner writes about the importance of seeking to live a holy life. Not that any of can do so perfectly, but that doesn't negate the blessings that come from doing our best on a daily basis. The first couple of chapters focus on holiness of heart and holiness of agency and the importance of both in helping women develop their holy character. She shares stories and experiences, both her own and others, to help make her points. She goes on to discuss the importance of finding out own personal, 'ordinary extraordinary' ministers that we can pour our hearts and souls in, and find holiness in doing. I found this book to be very inspiring as well as reassuring. Sometimes it feels like nothing I do is ever quite good enough or important enough. This book reminds me that that isn't the case. I was reminded of the widow's mite and how it wasn't how much she gave that was important, but the manner in which she gave. For women who are struggling to find peace and joy in the ordinary and the mundane I recommend this book as a reminder of the Lord's love for each of us.
