Rise: How a House Built a Family

Sorry for not posting this earlier, I totally thought I did.

A juicy memoir … I don’t remember how I heard about this book, and because it’s been a few months I don’t remember exact thoughts about it, so I am just going to share my review from goodreads…

Rise: How a House Built a FamilyRise: How a House Built a Family by Cara Brookins

Like most people Cara encountered during her build, I thought it seemed crazy that someone could build a house just learning off of YouTube, but her journey, both with building a house and the struggles that come up, as well as her personal struggles with domestic-violence, it seemed as though she had no where to go but up.

Memoirs are not something I normally read, but the message behind her book fits in with the idea of having a growth mindset the staff at my school is trying to teach our students … not giving up, and the idea that if you can build a house, you can do anything… (whatever a “house” might be to that individual – I almost feel that could be a metaphor for something challenging in your life)
