Too often we are guarded, afraid to share the unvarnished truth about our journeys - only to find that the glossing over hinders us from authentic connection and consequently joy.
Holm bravely lets the listener in on the path she has taken, while trying to gain the courage to become who she is meant to be, including all of the surprising, confusing and awkward moments she encountered along the way.
The Courage to Become is a raw account of a woman's journey through love, marriage, and motherhood. It reads like an intimate conversation between friends. Holm unabashedly highlights her insecurities surrounding love, money, sex, identity, and body image. And as a gift, Catia points you in the direction of luminaries so that you too can use their wisdom while on your own path of "becoming".
The golden threads woven through this book fill you with hope and the courage to become...and don't we all need a little more hope as we go through the growing pains of becoming?
Catia's writing inspires you to honor yourself, to move through fear, to have faith, to be honest about who you are, and to find pride in your own vulnerability.
As you listen to this book, you will find a kindred spirit in Catia, as she helps you to believe that even though you may be stumbling along, we are worthy of the lives we seek and not only are we enough; we are plenty.
This book is totally relatable and I️ would recommend for any woman trying to balance being a new wife and mother.
This book is so necessary. If you are or have ever felt alone and lost in your journey, get this book for yourself!!! Learn how to love yourself, embrace yourself, and find the courage to stay true to yourself during life’s most challenging moments.
