Rachel Hollis is my spirit animal (not an animal though), maybe my soul sister? Not too sure. I do know that she has a mind very similar to mine and her book confronted every insecurity or struggle that I’ve encountered in my 23 years of life.
Who does that? Who confronts that stuff and makes people feel confident after? But also makes you feel like your their best friend.
Rachel Hollis does y’all. She puts all the things we ALL need to hear right now into words that resonate with readers.
This book has transformed me in the weirdest way. Spiritually and emotionally. After reading this book, I felt refreshed. Reading her book almost made me feel like I just left a therapy session. CRAZY, right?
She mixes faith, unfiltered thoughts, and real life into the perfect words. She begins each chapter with a lie that we often will ourselves because the devil pushes these fears on us. The chapters are short and sweet, but nothing less than powerful. And, she ends each chapter with some tips on how she dealt with that lie. She makes it a point in the book that it is critical that these lies are confronted and fixed. We need to live in truth, loving others and loving ourselves.
Rachel Hollis shares so many real life trials: her traumatic childhood, her struggle with loving people, her struggle with loving herself, living life instead of just getting by, and overall becoming a better woman.
Her willingness to open up to readers with hopes of helping someone through similar trials is remarkable and brave.
I’ve gained a better perspective on issues and I feel like my faith is a bit stronger. I now know that I am in control of my thoughts and I can take my life in whatever direction I choose. I can be the person I strive to be if I believe in myself. And most importantly, by the grace of God.
I’m recommending this book because the spectrum of lessons and humbling experiences Rachel Hollis shares with us leaves the reader with various platforms to connect to. Like truly connect and leave you saying, Hey I think like that, I’ve been through the exact same experience, I struggle with that too. And no it isn’t just about struggle and flaws, it’s about how we can grow from it in an honest way.
You will laugh out loud and you will shed a tear (or sob).
I can read this book over and over again.
I am having a difficult time explaining this book to you without giving it away because I can go on and on about what Rachel Hollis talks about and how it makes me feel. But- I want you to read it. Take my word, this book is phenomenal.
