The struggle began “in the Garden of Eden….And where there is shame, we struggle to find beauty.”
All chapters, including sub-titles bring to the forefront the subjects of struggles with beauty, how it began, how we continue to face the same struggle today, and who is at the root of this beauty deception. Additionally, there are Beauty Marks (words of encouragement), Group Discussion Questions, and Personal Journaling Questions to delve deeper behind the beauty struggle.
Do not think that none of this book applies to your life because it does. Every person has battled with one or more issues of personal beauty, whether presented in elementary or high school, college, or in your present life today. This book lends words of encouragement, biblical scripture, provoking questions to look deeper into society’s view of beauty, and how to find the meaning of real beauty within oneself.
I recommend women of all ages read Barbara Roose’s thoughtful views on beauty and see if any part hits home. This is a great guide for individual or study groups and an excellent gifting opportunity.
