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 read each page, 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.
