Our culture bombards women with "thinspiration" messages and pressure to "do it all" while wearing the mask of perfection. 

Women are left feeling alone and overwhelmed. How can they stop comparing themselves to others? How can they live out who they really are?

Lee Wolfe Blum offers stories from everyday women who have answered these questions with their lives-and found true beauty in the process. In Brave Is the New Beautiful, Blum weaves reflections from her own journey with inspirational stories from everyday women who chose to take off their masks and live authentically. Through call-to-action questions and ideas, she encourages readers to be brave enough to be who they really are and the beloved that God knows they are.

My Review:
"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.
