Girl, Wash Your Face

Girl, Wash Your Face Summary


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.

If you have ever said any of these things to yourself . . .
Something else will make me happy.I’m not a good mom.I will never get past this.I am defined by my weight.I should be further along by now.
. . . then you could benefit from the unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity Rachel Hollis has in store for you. In this challenging but conversational 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.

Rachel is real and talks about real issues. More than that, she 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. Because you really can live with passion and hustle – and give yourself grace without giving up.

What. A. Gem.5 star

I’m late to the Rachel Hollis train (because Irish twins) but all I’ve got to say is that every woman should read this book. This is one of the best self improvement books I’ve read.55


No no no2 star

Not a good book. Gave it 2 stars cause she seems like an okay lady. But, the book is just written badly I think.25


Her privilege1 star

Her privilege is a bit too dramatic for me. I felt worse and worse as I listened to the audiobook about who she was. Her insights when read by women who have faced similar levels of adversity - may be excellent. For those of us who are not abled, who live marginally in the world, who have lived below the poverty line, and therefore have a highly likelihood to have faced more chronic and adverse trauma….this book will hurt to read. For a lot of reasons. It will feel out of touch. It will make you angry. It will make shamed simultaneously - when you logically know it’s that she is out of touch. And it may make you feel less than. Which somehow makes the valuable insights peppered in feel like someone else’s words that she’s recycling in her own words. Feels like someone who read a lot of self development and has a lot of confidence and went for it, which is admirable. But she’s probably going to make a lot of people who have experienced trauma outside of what mainstream America would call a “normal” amount…feel worse for it. Read some Brene Browne, Nedra Tawwab, Glennon Doyle….don’t go down this road. There are plenty of better roads to go down.15


Every woman needs to read this book!5 star

This book was everything that I hoped it would be. I bought it roughly two years ago and just decided to read it. It was a real eye opener. I haven’t ready a book in twelve years. I will be reading all of her books!55

Overall liked the book. I think I would’ve liked it better if I was a Christian mom. Not really my vibe and that’s okay. Overall great messages.25
