"Brave is the new Beautiful: finding the courage to be the real you," by Lee Wolfe Blum, is an excellent read for each and every woman who feels like she cannot do it all and is feeling overwhelmed with all the pressure to be perfect and do everything. Lee shares personal stories and stories of women she has met whom are choosing to be themselves, rip off the masks they are hiding behind, a perfect front that they are putting on to the world and those they interact with in their everyday lives. One of my favorite sections (one of many!) in this book is: "I think the journey to discovering our true identity is one we walk our whole lives. Our understanding doesn't always unfold in the time frame we'd like, but God is always at our side, urging us onward, holding us close to him." This is just one part that jumped out at me and I read it again and underlined it. This is such an inspiring book that has me thinking about who I am, who I want to be and who I present to others. I love the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, for personal thought, but also to discuss with others.
