Face-Lift is an inspirational self-help guide by Holly Curby. The book explains how the posts she shared on social media about her life became an outlet for her emotions and helped others find healing and encouragement. The author highlights the various challenges she faced in her marriage, career, family’s health, spiritual journey, and many more aspects of life. She shares the power of having a support group and God on her side in each trial, and the lessons she learned through her journey. Trusting in God and surrendering to His will got her through battles in her home, hospital, courthouses, and workplaces. The betrayals, grief, and disappointments became the building blocks of her ministry, helped her build strong bonds with her family and friends, and continued to strengthen her faith in God.

Face-Lift is a gut-wrenching and uplifting story that took me on an emotional roller coaster. Holly Curby’s life was one hurdle after another, and her spiritual and mental growth was like that of a Phoenix rising from the ashes. God turned her heartache into something beautiful and meaningful. Her journey was of hope, self-discovery, healing, and forgiveness. My favorite part of this book is the never-ending profound quotes. Her family mottos, creative acronyms, song lyrics, and Bible verses touched my heart because they are words I would love to hear when facing a challenge. I believe many readers will resonate with this book and be encouraged to keep the light shining through their darkest moments. I applaud the author's honesty, vulnerability, and willingness to admit her wrongs because it shows her humanity and authenticity. The book is well written, with a consistent format and beautiful designs that make it visually appealing. The pictures at the beginning of every chapter perfectly complement the lessons and narration. I highly recommend this to anyone going through a challenging time because it will help them find peace through it all.
