Girl, Read Your Bible

Yesterday I came across a video on Instagram. Rachel Hollis is a famed inspirational speaker and author, encouraging women to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and relentlessly run after their dreams. Not a bad message at all, right? I was a bit late to the Rachel Hollis party, slightly weary of her cult-like following, but still read her best selling book, “Girl, Wash Your Face” back at the beginning of the year.
