Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
I first heard about Rachel Hollis through a FB post by Susanna Kearsley (whose work I LOVE) and so off I went to check out the link to this new book! Wow! You guys, as far as I am concerned EVERY woman needs to read this book.
Rachel’s raw, funny and real sharing of what she has been through and how she has overcome the lies that she believed is refreshing and wonderfully enlightening! I’m pretty sure that every woman can relate to at least one if not more of the lies we believe about ourselves and Rachel’s driving message is that you get to choose how to make change happen. You get to choose a better future and to embrace and reach for the truth. The struggles we as women face are real. I found Girl, Wash Your Face to be full of hope and straight talk.
Whether you have got it all together, or you are hanging on for dear life, this book is a must read!
Thanks to Rachel for her bravery and honesty.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and my opinions are my own.
