This book is so encouraging and truly did help me to see that brave is beautiful!

I love the writing style of Lee as she writes as though she is sitting with us and talking with us as a friend. She drew me into the book on the first page and I just couldn't put it down! It was so exciting to realize that being me was beautiful and that all the scars and hard things were what make!

We are so caught up in our culture of presenting a good face. Perfect pictures of our perfect homes (when there is no such thing) and hiding the pain that we are feeling as we go through the hard things. I absolutely loved the stories she shares throughout and they were so encouraging and gave me confidence to go forward. I had tears in my eyes while reading some of these stories but not because of sorrow but because of the bravery I saw in the pages.

My favorite part of this book are the questions for reflection at the end of each chapter. She asked the right questions to help me become the person I want to be. They weren't always easy questions to answer but that's the point. They made me dig deep into what I truly believe about myself.

I love this book and will definitely be reading it again. I gained so much from this book and I believe you will, too. Every woman really should read this book! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
