Girl, Wash Your Face – by Rachel Hollis


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.

As the founder of the lifestyle website 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 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.


One Personal Takeaway: This book gives some practical advice about moving beyond some of life’s little hiccups. It’s time to take responsibility for yourself and your life and get moving! Especially in these difficult times, it would be easy to hide out, make excuses, and procrastinate. Stop bemoaning what happened in the past and take control of what happens next. I think this is good advice for all, both in our personal and professional lives.
