Descripción

Con un ingenio irónico y una sabiduría lograda con esfuerzo, la popular celebridad en línea y fundadora de TheChicSite.com, Rachel Hollis, ayuda a sus lectoras a liberarse de las mentiras que las mantienen alejadas de la vida exuberante y rebosante de alegría que deberían tener.

Fundadora del sitio web sobre estilos de vida TheChicSite.com y directora ejecutiva de su propia compañía de medios, Chic Media, Rachel Hollis ha creado una base de fans en línea de cientos de miles de fanáticas al impartir consejos para una vida mejor, mientras revela intrépidamente su propio desorden. Ahora llega su tan esperado primer libro, presentando la típica combinación de honestidad, humor y consejos prácticos y directos.

Cada capítulo comienza con una mentira específica que ella una vez creyó y la hizo sentir abrumada, indigna o lista para darse por vencida. Siendo una madre trabajadora, exmadre adoptiva y una mujer que ha lidiado con todo tipo de inseguridades acerca de su cuerpo y sus relaciones, Hollis habla con la comprensión y el afecto de una mejor amiga, ayudando a las mujeres a deshacerse de la mentalidad limitante que destruye su confianza en sí mismas e impiden el avance.

Desde una obsesión pasajera por casarse con Matt Damon, hasta una ensoñación que involucra iguanas hipnóticas, a la petición de su hijo de que se comprara un collar para “ser como las otras mamás”, Hollis no oculta nada. Con fe y tenacidad inquebrantables, estimula a otras mujeres a vivir con pasión y prisa, y a despertar sus sueños dormidos.

    I initially heard about Rachel on Jen Hatmaker's podcast. As she shared the premise of her book, I was captivated and knew it was one I needed to immediately order. Guys, I loved this book. Each chapter focuses on one lie that she (and we) told herself. She walks the reader through her own experience in battling that particular lie and shares how she eventually worked through it. This is a fabulous book that SO MANY women can relate to, and Rachel shares in such a down-to-earth way. One of the best books of the year thus far.

    Compared to some of the other "self-help" books I've read, I liked this one more. However, it still was a little repetitive. The message was great, the stories were funny, but the same lines were used many times, even within her own anecdotes. I get that it didn't tell her life in chronological order, but it didn't need to repeat.

    Overall, it was a solid read and I can see how it speaks to a lot of people, women especially. She's a great writer and the book is inspiring.

    Rachel Hollis is such an inspiration. This book was just what I needed and I hope that fire it lit within me remains burning for a good long time. This book is down to earth about the struggles we go through and how to push past and overcome them. I feel stronger just having read this. It is relatable and inspirational.*I received a copy of this book from Netgalley. The review is my own, honest and unsolicited.

    I really enjoyed this book. The chapters about being a mom were really helpful. She makes a lot of great points. Looking forward to reading Girl, Stop Apologizing next.

    Two reads completed, several passages highlighted, and a whole new perspective on life and the pursuit of happiness. :)

    Rachel Hollis has given us a new book! It's not fiction, it's not a cookbook, it's Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be. Part self help, part honest, heartbreaking non-fiction, Girl, Wash Your Face was the book I didn't know I needed. Broken into chapters by lie, yes as in the lies we believe in about ourselves, Rachel Hollis tackles the struggles women face daily and the steps we can take to make a positive, lasting difference. Rachel's personal stories are sometimes tough to read, but always relatable and her willingness to share her truths was incredibly impactful for me. The things she struggled and/or struggles with are the same things I struggle with. Her solutions? Easy to follow, though the dedication and the creation of the habit relies on your strength, will, and determination. It inspired me, Rachel's voice and words run through my head now throughout the day, and it taught me the ability to forgive myself each time I fail and believe the lies I shouldn't.

    ❝Recognizing the lies we've come to accept about ourselves is the key to growing into a better version of ourselves.❞

    Though I cried, a lot, Girl, Wash Your Face is a humorous, powerful read that is easy to follow and inspiring. The solutions Rachel gives us are every day solutions, things that anyone can implement into their daily life whether through physical action or personal thought. She gives us the honest, harsh reality, but also gives us the chance to forgive ourselves, to understand others, and to create a healthy path towards healing and positivity. I loved the overarching message of self worth, power, and strength. I finished the last page with a renewed vigor for life and a new method of self-love. I highly recommend that everyone picks up a copy of Girl, Wash Your Face, whether you think you believe any lies or not. It's a book that women need and a book I'll be returning to repeatedly.
    In fact, I'm off to read it again before I'm off to RISE, Rachel's women's conference!

    Rachel Hollis is the creator of lifestyle website The Chic Site. In this book she gives advice to women, much as she does on her website. She is plainspoken and writes as though writing to friends or at least to those familiar with her work. Each chapter breaks down a lie that she believed about herself (and that many other women likely believe about themselves as well) and shows the lie for what it is and how she overcame it. On the whole, the advice is good, particularly if you are looking for a Christian self-help book that isn’t preachy.If you are familiar with Hollis’ work, you will probably enjoy this book. She doesn’t hold back and shares honest and sometimes painful stories from her own life to illustrate how she learned to improve. She also shares the embarrassing and funny stories that will surely appeal to a lot of women.Unfortunately, I am not the target audience for this book. I’m not married or a mother or someone with an interest in lifestyle websites. I also don’t read self-help books very often, preferring to figure things out on my own. While, sure, the parenting advice isn’t for me, there were still chapters on general life advice or on work life that would be applicable to me. Yet, I found the tone of the book off-putting. The thesis appears to be “You are completely messing up your life and here’s how to fix it” which just makes me want to set the book down and never pick it up again. I only finished it because it was a book club selection, so I felt obligated.
