June’s Book To Live By

This month’s Books To Live By selection highlights the theme for our June membership programThe Struggle and Triumph of Self-Acceptance.

From a powerful author, journalist and activist, hailed as the voice of a new generation for transgender rights, comes the New York Times best-selling memoir about her quest to find and claim her authentic self.

Our June selection is….

Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More by Janet Mock (Amazon link)

In this groundbreaking testimony to self-discovery, Mock shares a rare and honest look into the world of a trans woman maneuvering through life’s ups and downs.

You will follow Mock from a young age at home in Hawaii as she overcomes hurdle after devastating hurdle to travel halfway around the world for the surgery that changes her life at just 18.

The courage and conviction Mock displays throughout her journey are awe-inspiring; even in her darkest moments, she somehow finds a way to tune into her true self and move forward.

Beyond being a gripping memoir, it is also an important one. Mock’s story sheds light on the trans community in ways that celebrate the progress that has been made, while thoughtfully pointing out where we can do better.

If you are part of our membership program and have already to listened to the recent interview with Janet, you can expect the same warmth and power that she shared with us there.

Redefining Realness will move you to thinking you may never have considered before. Janet is an absolute Woman on Fire, and after you read her story, we know you’ll agree. 🙂

And because this interview was overflowing with insight, I wanted to give you one last glimpse…

“We are all learning and growing. To be scared of something that’s kind of a foreign subject or that may not be completely in line with your experience is completely natural.

I think the No. 1 thing is to come from a space where you’re talking with another human being. You’re talking to someone with her own struggles and triumphs and with her own issues and traumas. We want to come from a place of empathy.” —Janet Mock
