A new year has begun and with it many girls and women will begin the “diet revolution” to get fit and trim, to look better, and to shake up the “wow” in their life. I just finished reading a book that could really shake up the “wow” in your life! Fierce Beauty by Kim Meeder uses personal stories, powerful illustrations, and inciteful questions to provoke readers to question the status quo on beauty. We have all been taught that our outer self – our looks- are what makes us beautiful. However, Ms. Meeder encourages all women to embrace the knowledge that God is the mirror with which we must view ourselves. His description of us is the most potent value of our worth and beauty.
Ms Meeder owns and operates the Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Oregon and many of her stories are about her life on this ranch where she rescues abused and neglected horses. She then pairs those horses with disadvantaged children. If you are feeling like one of those abused and neglected horses or one of the disadvantaged children, then curl up with this book and feel the raw power and beauty of God’s love for you.
This book uses beautiful words along with powerful illustrations to illuminate the truths that each of us must embrace about our own worth and beauty. You will never look at yourself or others in the same light or with the same value system.
I received this book free for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
