Soul Deep Beauty
We Are Being Lied To
It’s time to get honest with ourselves. Culture’s beauty standards are messed up. We all know it, and we all think we can resist the pull to look a certain way. Yet most of us–our daughters and nieces too–still strive for a broken kind of beauty and feel I’m. not. good. enough.
For Melissa Johnson, a marriage and family therapist, this lie eventually led to battling an eating disorder. Through that experience, she saw that chasing broken beauty breaks women in so many ways. She also realized that true, soul-deep beauty is not impossible–it abounds in us and all around us. And now Melissa’s on a mission to help you
* uncover the hidden damage cultural lies about beauty have on your mind and soul
* reconnect with God, in whose image you are made
* walk away from shame and striving
* love yourself–and others–unconditionally
True beauty is the fullness of life we are longing for. It’s the reality that blows our minds, affirms our true worth, and invites us into an adventure that meets our deepest longings. And it’s true beauty that will save us if we open our eyes to it.

Appendix: Organizations Supporting Women
Starred Review. New York Times columnist Kristof and his wife, WuDunn, a former Times reporter, make a brilliantly argued case for investing in the health and autonomy of women worldwide. More girls have been killed in the last fifty years, precisely because they were girls, than men were killed in all the wars of the twentieth century, they write, detailing the rampant gendercide in the developing world, particularly in India and Pakistan. Far from merely making moral appeals, the authors posit that it is impossible for countries to climb out of poverty if only a fraction of women (9% in Pakistan, for example) participate in the labor force. China’s meteoric rise was due to women’s economic empowerment: 80% of the factory workers in the Guangdong province are female; six of the 10 richest self-made women in the world are Chinese. The authors reveal local women to be the most effective change agents: The best role for Americans… isn’t holding the microphone at the front of the rally but writing the checks, an assertion they contradict in their unnecessary profiles of American volunteers finding compensations for the lack of shopping malls and Netflix movies in making a difference abroad.
