Many women have struggled with their looks, their weight, being accepted or liking themselves. As I began to read this book, I found myself thinking I have experienced many of these same things throughout my life. We are out own worse enemy. When we begin to think we are not pretty or liked, we start to believe it and before we know it, we are trapped by the enemy. The media is a vast source of perceiving women a certain way. The magazines are full of beautiful , perfect women who we think we need to look like.

I loved the example the author gave about Eve. She went against God and ate from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. She didn't trust God, but believed she knew better. It is time for us to seek God and listen to him instead of lies from the enemy. The book does an excellent job of redirecting us to listen to God and know we are beautifully made. It goes on to say we need to spend more time with Him. We should allow Him to speak to us and read scriptures that will encourage us. The book also includes resources and scripture meditation at the end which is a very useful tool.

Allow God to show you areas that you may be struggling in. Let Him remind you that you have a purpose. Is something holding you back from seeking your destiny? Have you not forgiven someone? The book is such an encouragement and I love the illustrations that shows the beauty of a woman. "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come." 2 Corinthians 5:17

I would encourage every woman to read this book and be encouraged that you are beautiful and God does have a plan for your life.

I received a copy of this book from The BookClub Network for an honest review. ( )
