As women, we all struggle with our own ugly battle with beauty. We look in the mirror and see flaw after flaw after flaw after flaw after flaw ad infinitum. Books have been written telling women how to view themselves, how to be beautiful, what beauty is, and what beauty isn’t. We are bombarded by it at every turn, every glance on the shelves at the store checkout lane shows us more and more what beauty is. And we feel measureless to keep up or measure up.
Until now. Barbara L. Roose has written what in my opinion is the best book on beauty available. She writes with grace, kindness, and understanding. She points us toward Jesus in every chapter, not because our external appearance doesn’t matter at all. But because we are fearfully and wonderfully made in His image. Every cell, every pore, every inch of our being was designed by Him.
My favorite chapter in the book is on the topic of God’s Paint Palette. She talks about how to end the racial segregation, and racism we all face and experience. This was the best thing I have read dealing with this issue.
This book is a must read for every female.
I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
