rachel hollis books

 

Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women not living into their full potential. They feel a tugging on their hearts for something more, but they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough.

In Girl, Stop Apologizing, #1 New York Times bestselling author and founder of a multimillion-dollar media company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people—whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee—instead of learning how to own who they are and what they want. With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself.Age Range:Adult

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.

As the founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Rachel Hollis developed an immense online community by sharing tips for better living while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own life. Now, in this challenging and inspiring new 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.

With painful honesty and fearless humor, Rachel unpacks and examines the falsehoods that once left her feeling overwhelmed and unworthy, and 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.

With unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity, Girl, Wash Your Face shows you how to live with passion and hustle--and how to give yourself grace without giving up.

Quotes from Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis:

 

  • “know this one great truth: you are in control of your own life. You get one and only one chance to live, and life is passing you by. Stop beating yourself up, and dang it, stop letting others do it too. Stop accepting less than you deserve. Stop buying things you can’t afford to impress people you don’t even really like. Stop eating your feelings instead of working through them. Stop buying your kids’ love with food, or toys, or friendship because it’s easier than parenting. Stop abusing your body and your mind. Stop! Just get off the never-ending track.”
    ― Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
  • "You must choose to be happy, grateful, and fulfilled. If you make that choice every single day, regardless of where you are or what’s happening, you will be happy.”
  • “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.”
    ― Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
  • “The God who made the moon and the stars and the mountains and the oceans, the Creator who did all of those things, believed that you and your baby were meant to be a pair. That doesn’t mean you’re going to be a perfect fit. That doesn’t mean you won’t make mistakes. It does mean that you need not fear failure because you can’t fail a job you were created to do.”
    ― Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
  • “What I want to say is that we all judge each other, but even though we all do it, that's not an excuse. Judging is still one of the most hurtful, spiteful impulses we own, and our judgments keep us from building a stronger tribe...or having a tribe in the first place. Our judgment prohibits us from beautiful, life-affirming friendships. Our judgment keeps us from connecting in deeper, richer ways because we're too stuck on the surface-level assumptions we've made. Our judging has to stop.”
    ― Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
  • “the only thing worse than giving up is wishing that you hadn’t.”

Best Selling Book: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World – by Dalai Lama XIV, Desmond Tutu

The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

By Dalai Lama XIVDesmond Tutu

 Dalai Lama book-best selling

Two great spiritual masters share their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity
 
The occasion was a big birthday. And it inspired two close friends to get together in Dharamsala for a talk about something very important to them. The friends were His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The subject was joy. Both winners of the Nobel Prize, both great spiritual masters and moral leaders of our time, they are also known for being among the most infectiously happy people on the planet.

From the beginning the book was envisioned as a three-layer birthday cake: their own stories and teachings about joy, the most recent findings in the science of deep happiness, and the daily practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives. Both the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu have been tested by great personal and national adversity, and here they share their personal stories of struggle and renewal. Now that they are both in their eighties, they especially want to spread the core message that to have joy yourself, you must bring joy to others.

Most of all, during that landmark week in Dharamsala, they demonstrated by their own exuberance, compassion, and humor how joy can be transformed from a fleeting emotion into an enduring way of life.

Excerpt (preview of The Book of Joy)

The Invitation to Joy

No dark fate determines the future. We do. Each day and each moment, we are able tocreate and re-create our lives and the very quality of human life on our planet. This is the power we wield.

Lasting happiness cannot be found in pursuit of any goal or achievement. It does not reside in fortune or fame. It resides only in the human mind and heart, and it is here that we hope you will find it.

 

Arrival: We Are Fragile Creatures

 

We are fragile creatures, and it is from this weakness, not despite it, that we discover the possibility of true joy," the Archbishop said as I handed him his sleek black cane with silver handle shaped  like a greyhound. "Life is filled with challenges and adversity,"

Moments that clearly are much greater than my natural capacity calls for. Yet there I was, here I am, and most likely there I will be. In the deep end.

The Abundant Life by Greg E. Viehman, M.D. 

" I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly"

John 10:10

The Abundant Life is a powerful ten week Bible study designed for personal or group setting use that clearly demonstrates how to enjoy an abundant and fruitful relationship with the true and living God. In John 10:10 Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." What did Jesus mean? What is the abundant life that God wants His children to have? How do we experience the abundant life that Jesus came to provide? This study will examine the abundant life according to Scripture. It is written for all Christians to ensure they are experiencing what Jesus died and paid for. God never intended for His children to live a life of despair and defeat. The Abundant Life is a great read!

What Does It Mean To Live An Abundant Life

August 23rd, 2016|Comments Off on What Does It Mean To Live An Abundant Life

what does it mean to live an abundant life

What Does It Mean To Live An Abundant Life?

An Abundant life refers to life in its abounding fullness of joy and strength for mind, body, and soul.

What did Jesus mean when He promised an abundant life?

 This word “abundant” in the Greek is perisson, meaning “exceedingly, very highly, beyond measure, more, superfluous, a quantity so abundant as to be considerably more than what one would expect or anticipate.” In short, Jesus promises us a life far better than we could ever imagine, a concept reminiscent of 1 Corinthians 2:9: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” The apostle Paul tells us something that is utterly profound: God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think and He does it by His power, a power that is at work within us if we belong to Him (Ephesians 3:20).1 Corinthians 1:26-29). In terms of economic, academic, and social status, most Christians do not come from the privileged classes. Clearly then, abundant life does not consist of an abundance of material things. If that were the case, Jesus would have been the wealthiest of men. But just the opposite is true (Matthew 8:20).

Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth

Angela Duckworth GRIT

Angela Duckworth is a New York Times bestseller and a pioneer psychologist.

Drawing on her own powerful story as the daughter of a scientist who frequently noted her lack of “genius,” Duckworth, now a celebrated researcher and professor, describes her early eye-opening stints in teaching, business consulting, and neuroscience, which led to the hypothesis that what really drives success is not “genius” but a unique combination of passion and long-term perseverance.

In Grit, she takes readers into the field to visit cadets struggling through their first days at West Point, teachers working in some of the toughest schools, and young finalists in the National Spelling Bee. She also mines fascinating insights from history and shows what can be gleaned from modern experiments in peak performance. Finally, she shares what she’s learned from interviewing dozens of high achievers—from JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon to New Yorker cartoon editor Bob Mankoff to Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll.

Among Grit’s most valuable insights:

*Why any effort you make ultimately counts twice toward your goal
*How grit can be learned, regardless of I.Q. or circumstances
*How lifelong interest is triggered
*How much of optimal practice is suffering and how much ecstasy
*Which is better for your child—a warm embrace or high standards
*The magic of the Hard Thing Rule

The Rhythm of Life by Matthew Kelly

Raise-your-Standards

The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us to become the best version of ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great.

We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the best version of ourselves.

by Matthew Kelly

Here are a few more of my favorite quotes from the Book -The Rhythm of Life 

“Whether you are sixteen or sixty, the rest of your life is ahead of you. You cannot change one moment of your past, but you can change your whole future. Now is your time.”
― Matthew Kelly, The Rhythm of Life: Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose

 

“We become the stories we listen to. But perhaps the more important question is, what stories do you listen to? What stories are forming your life?”
― Matthew Kelly, The Rhythm of Life: Living Everyday With Passion and Purpose

 

“If you give your body a choice, it will always take the easy way out. Your body lies. It tells you it cannot when it can.”
― Matthew Kelly, The Rhythm of Life: Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose

 

“God does not want to control you, or stifle you, or manipulate you, or force you to do anything you don't want to do. Quite the opposite. God will let you do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, with whomever you want to do it, and as often as you want to do it. When was the last time God stopped you from doing anything?”
― Matthew Kelly, The Rhythm of Life: Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose

 

"The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us become the-best-version-of-ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great."– Matthew Kelly The Rhythm of Life: Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose

 

"We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves." - Matthew Kelly The Rhythm of Life: Living Every Day with Passion and Purpose
