In the downtime, I have been involved in launching two really great books. The first one is called Girl, Was Your Face by Rachel Hollis. The tag line on the cover says "Stop believing the lies abowho are so you can become who you were meant to be." Who does not need that their life? The book addresses common lies that women believe, and breaks them down one by one, with some suggestions to find YOUR TRUTH about the subject at the end of the chapter. Some examples: I'm bad at sex; I'll never be a great mom; I'm defined by my weight; I should be further along by now. The suggestions at the end of each chapter are kind of open ended, because it's really up to you to figure out your truth once you confront the lie. Sounds tough, but such satisfying work. Read this book. Then get one for every woman you love.
The second one is called A Midwife in Amish Country. It is just an amazingly heartfelt memoir of bringing babies into the world and the good, the scary, the sad, the exhilaration of having this calling on your life. I'm still reading it, but I know it's one I will suggest for anyone interested in memoirs, and women's interest books. I'll finish my reviews when I finish the book.
