I wrote This Beautiful Mess to help us as we learn to embrace the messes our lives bring and see them as beautiful. My hope is that this book offers a breath of fresh air to those that are heavy and exhausted from trying to keep it all together perfectly.
Life is full of mishaps, reroutes, and disasters; they punctuate best-laid plans at every turn. But maybe the messiness of life is not something to shy away from but something to embrace. In THIS BEAUTIFUL MESS, Bartholomew lets you into her mess and teaches you how to embrace the unpretty parts of your story so you can transform your perspective and learn how to reject the expectations of perfection.
