Teen Beauty Tips
Helping You Find Your True Beauty in Christ!
Did you know...
24% of women would sacrifice 3 years of their life to be thin
Girls as young as five have expressed fears of getting fat
90% of high school junior and senior girls diet regularly even though only between 10-15% are considered overweight.
See more body image statistics here.
Does this surprise you? Do you wonder why this is happening?
I believe one of the biggest influence on girls today regarding beauty is the media.
And unfortunately, the media is lying to you. Don't believe me? Let this short video clip, "Evolution", expose the truth....
No wonder our perception of beauty is so distorted!
Do you think it is right for the media to edit pictures used in ads?
Share your thoughts and read what other people think here.
this PDF handout about touch-ups in the media.
The reason I decided to write Teen Beauty Tips is to help you recognize these lies and discover your true beauty. It's always been there, it just needs to be found and rescued.
I love the story of Cinderella like so many people do. I think her story continues to be told in many different cultures and generations because in one way or another, we can all relate to her. We can relate to her darkness, her struggles, her oppressors and yet we also long to be rescued by our Prince Charming.
What is the one question all girls ask, even from a small age?
"Am I Beautiful?"
I remember that my dream as a young girl was to be "Miss America." At our slumber parties in my basement, we would actually hold our own Miss America contests...dressing up and coming down the steps to the familiar tune of "Here she comes, Miss America."
Unfortunately, the lies from the media destroy that hope....the hope that we will be found beautiful.
Girls, it's time to relight our hope and find our true beauty!
We need to uncover the lies we've been believing and replace them with the truth. "Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." John 8:32
Let's embark on this journey together. Will you join me?
I'll be your guide, but we will both have many stories to share along the way. I look forward to
sharing mine and hearing yours. I don't have all the answers, so I will rely on some of you to share your insight and experiences as well!
