9781609078065: Why I Don't Hide My Freckles Anymore: Perspectives on True Beauty

What is beauty? More than 50 contributors, including such well-known authors as Wendy Ulrich, S. Michael Wilcox, Kathryn Soper, and Jana Parkin, attempt to answer that question in this fresh, funny, and insightful look at the relationship between beauty and female identity. In a society that is obsessed with physical perfection and saturated with unrealistic images of the ideal woman, the writers in this thought-provoking anthology reaffirm the importance of inner beauty, offer much-needed perspective on body image and aging, discuss how they have coped with self-awareness and the urge to compare, and reveal the liberating truth that life doesn't have to be one long, miserable diet.

Book Description Deseret Book, Salt Lake City, UT, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1609078063 Brand new softcover book! ; We've all heard the old adage "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." But who is the beholder? Women today are bombarded by harmful messages in society about their bodies and appearance. We often feel inadequate and overwhelmed by the impossible-to-achieve ideals touted in the media. And sometimes our harshest critics are the eyes looking back at us in the mirror. No matter the source, when our image of personal beauty is threatened, it's important to remember who the rightful beholder of true beauty is?is our Heavenly Father. The adversary, ever jealous of our bodies, wishes for us to forget that our bodies are temples. He wants us to resent them as prisons and abuse them with unhealthy words, unrealistic views, and harmful behaviors. But the scriptures help us remember that "the body and the spirit are the soul of man" (D&C 88:15), "the worth of souls is great in the sight of God" (D&C 18:10), and that to discover our royal heritage, we mush look inside, "for the kingdom of God is within [us]" (Luke 17:21). By accepting these truths we are freed to see true beauty in and around us.The essays in this uplifting compilation, much like their authors, come in every shape and size, but each reaches toward the same conclusion: beauty is truth. And the truth is that everything God created is beautiful, your body included?freckles and all!Compiled by BYU Women's Services, this volume includes chapters by the following contributors: Cynthia L. Hallen Jana Parkin Jennifer Blaylock Ron Bartholomew Wendy Ulrich Kathryn Soper S. Michael Wilcox and many others; 8.20 X 5.40 X 0.50 inches; 144 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 57131
