Do you ever suspect that everyone else has life figured out and you don’t have a clue? If so, Rachel Hollis has something to tell you: that’s a lie.
Ladies, sisters, friends… Rachel Hollis’ new book is so amazing! First of all, more about who Rachel. She is the founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Rachel Hollis developed an immense online community by sharing tips for better living while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own life. Now, in this challenging and inspiring new book, Rachel exposes the twenty lies and misconceptions that too often hold us back from living joyfully and productively, lies we’ve told ourselves so often we don’t even hear them anymore.
With painful honesty and fearless humor, Rachel unpacks and examines the falsehoods that once left her feeling overwhelmed and unworthy, and reveals the specific practical strategies that helped her move past them. In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be.
With unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity, Girl, Wash Your Face shows you how to live with passion and hustle–and how to give yourself grace without giving up.
I purchased the audiobook version of Girl, Wash Your Face. It has been so amazing to hear Rachel share a lie, that I could relate to also. She shares how all of us women share all the same trials and troubles as mothers, women, wives and friends. Not a single one of us is perfection. We all share in insecurities and doubts. Working moms. Stay at home moms. All colors and ages and sizes. We tell ourselves lies… based on perceptions, assumptions and insecurities.
I loved this book because Rachel has a heart for truly sharing what all of us women go through. Her passion is to create a community of women who feel empowered and encouraged with a purpose. I recently attended a women’s conference with my sister. At the conference, during break time, every single person there had been emotionally touched with the message being spoken that day. It was pretty obvious that every single female in attendance had cried. All for different reasons. For sadness, hurting, resentment, doubts, insecurities, unloved, or unworthy. We all come from different backgrounds, races, and nationalities. But that day, I witnessed women encouraging and praying for other women.
This is where my heart is right now. The Lord is doing some housecleaning with my heart. I was truly blessed and inspired by the testimonies of these brave and encouraging women from that conference. In God’s timing, I hope to share more with my readers.
