Well, we did it! We came to the end of our book club. I loved the accountability to keep reading, to think about Rachel’s stories and how I related – or why I didn’t. Instead of recapping the final two chapters and what I thought, I wanted to leave it open for you to share your biggest takeaways. I have some thoughts on how this book wrapped up, but I do hope you’ll share yours!
My favorite quote from this week’s reading came from the final line of the final chapter: “Get up, right now. Rise up from where you’ve been, scrub away the tears and the pain of yesterday, and start again…Girl, wash your face!”
- What did you think of these chapters?
- Why do you think Rachel waited until the very last chapter to introduce the “Girl, wash your face” line?
- How did you see that theme throughout the rest of the book, even if she never explicitly said it?
So, what’s next?
I thought it might be fun to go through some little parts of my Bible study that goes with “Holy Hustle” – what do you think? It’s an 8-week study called “Work Hard, Rest Well” that explores what Scripture has to say about work, rest, success, and failure. When you pre-order a copy of “Holy Hustle” and fill out the form on my book page, you’ll be sent a PDF copy of the study – BUT you don’t have to worry about having the whole thing to join me. Each week I’ll share a Scripture reading and some discussion questions that we can do together. To be honest, spending time in the Word is probably the only thing that is going to get me through this book launch season in one piece.
If you do want to buy a copy of Work Hard, Rest Well, you can find it here. See you next week!
