When Lisa Leonard said her marriage vows, she was determined to be the best wife she could be. When her first son was born with a severe disability, Lisa promised herself she would always be the mother he needed. When she began her jewelry business, Lisa committed to giving it her all.
Over the years, the exhaustion of trying to be the perfect wife, mother, and businesswoman took its toll. Lisa knew it wasn’t working. She wanted to change things, but how? Everyone depended on her. So she kept going, kept pushing, kept trying to prove she could do it all.
Until one evening, in tears and desperation, Lisa realized that she could no longer be everything to everyone. Somewhere along the way, she had lost herself.
In Brave Love, Lisa shares her story of finding truth and wholeness in the midst of life’s competing demands. Brave Love is about what it means to be human, how it feels to be broken and afraid, and what happens when we dare to love deeply. Join Lisa on a journey where you will discover you are worthy and lovable just as you are. You don’t have to try harder or be better. You don’t have to prove yourself and you don’t have to make others okay. In this freedom you will find more peace and more joy. Most importantly, you will learn that as you stop trying to be everything to everyone, you will love others better.

I found this book to be a quick read. Once I picked it up it was easy to lose track of time. It is well written and sincere. I enjoyed the original poems at the end of each chapter. My favorite was Remind Me at the end of chapter 6. Lisa's vulnerability is refreshing and BRAVE! Her thoughts and words resonated with me. Lisa’s ability to share her true self and raw emotion with the world is inspiring! A reminder that no one’s life is picture perfect all the time. We all have struggles. Thank you, Lisa, for sharing and reminding me that it’s okay to take time for myself; It’s okay to stumble and start again; And that sharing my true self with the ones I love is important. We all deserve the red bowl! ***I had the privilege of receiving an advance reading copy of Brave Love from the publisher. ***
