This memoir and self-help hybrid was a decent audiobook. I enjoyed Hollis’s progressive Christian approach to life as she mixed self-help with her faith. It is definitely written for young women and being neither of those demographics, I still got some information and entertainment from it. Girl, Wash Your Face, is all about uplifting women that might be in a down place in their life. If you are in a place where you are asking yourself, “why should I even try?” or “I can’t do it, it is too difficult,” then I think this might be an inspiring read for you. It does lean rather heavily on faith and Christianity, so if neither of those things are your interest, I would look elsewhere.
“God has perfect timing, and it’s highly possible that by not being where you thought you should be, you will end up exactly where you’re meant to go.”
“You, and only you, are ultimately responsible for who you become and how happy you are.”
“Comparison is the death of joy, and the only person you need to be better than is the one you were yesterday.”
“Our words have power, but our actions shape our lives.”
“Someone else’s opinion of you is none of your business.”
