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 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.

Editorial Reviews
Hollis asks female readers to find their inner truths in this witty guide to healthy living. Hollis, founder of the lifestyle website and married mother of four, is a self-proclaimed recovering workaholic who suffered from erroneous beliefs instilled in childhood: “When I succeeded, I got praise and attention; I felt liked and accepted. But the moment the audience stopped clapping, it all went back to the way it was before. What this taught me... is the belief that in order to be loved, I felt I needed to produce something.” Hollis implores readers to stop worrying about external pressures to always do more and, instead, to find fulfillment by getting in touch with their own desires and feelings. Readers will find hope and humor in Hollis’s stories as she challenges them to take control of their physical, mental, and spiritual health through regulating habits, resisting unhelpful comparisons, and embracing changes such as marriage and motherhood. Opening up about her now-husband and their rough first year of dating, Hollis reveals she was trying too hard to make something work that didn’t fit, and admonishes other women not to do the same by making any single person their purpose for living. Throughout, she pairs biblical lessons with personal anecdotes to make her points. Hollis’s dynamic book is filled with inspiration for women who feel stuck on the path to realizing their dreams.

I don't even know where to begin with this review. I know for certain this is a book I will have my daughter read (many years into the future), as well as girls in my small group, friends, and sisters. Like Rachel, I have found that it is really easy to believe in the lies we, especially as women, are told at all stages in life, and I really appreciated how she not only named those lies, but gave realistic, practical tips on how to start telling yourself and others a different story. For a self-help book, this one is not preachy, but is very uplifting, affirming, and should be shared with the world. I can't recommend this book enough, and will happily be buying this book to give to friends as gifts. I received an Advanced Reader's Copy from the Publisher.

BUY THIS BOOK!!! This is probably the most powerful book you will read if you have ever struggled to feel good enough or actually want more for your life. Rachel writes like she's your best friend giving you the butt-kicking with love that you desperately need in that moment. It doesn't matter if you are single, married, kids or no, Christian or otherwise - her writing is universal to women!! You will not be sorry for buying this gem!
