about the project

In our society, beauty has become a brand. It’s sexy. It’s skinny. It has flawless skin.

If you’ve watched a movie, read a magazine, or listened to the radio in the past decade, this isn’t new information. You’ve passed the magazines and billboards of digitally altered women, and clearly heard the message,

“You’ll never be quite good enough.”

For a long time I have criticized myself against this impossible standard, questioning in my heart if I was beautiful. I’ve spent years feeling insecure, dissatisfied with the way God created me, because I don’t measure up to this standard.

But in the past year I have realized something, the standard is wrong. Beauty isn’t something that can be airbrushed or photo shopped. It’s not a certain look or body type. It’s much more than that.

The goal of this project was to highlight a different type of beauty, a kind you won‘t find in magazine. It’s a confident, strong, creative, and unique. It’s found in womans' heart and it shines through her eyes. It glorifies the Creator.

These women exemplify this beauty and have graciously shared their hearts on the subject. I hope you enjoy their wisdom and realize that

you are beautiful.

What do you think beauty is?

"Beauty is much deeper than your outside appearance; it focuses more on who you are on the inside. Pretty and hot are used to describe your outer appearance, but beauty holds more meaning."

Do you think your beautiful?

"Yes, I do. I know I am because my Father says I am. He sees the me no one else sees sometimes; not the girl with frizzy hair. I am beautiful in His eyes, and that’s all that matters."

When do you feel the most beautiful?

"I feel the most beautiful right after I wake up in the morning. I feel refreshed and better than I do when I am all dressed up."

What do you think God finds beautiful in a woman?

"I think God finds being in a relationship with Him beautiful. The closer you are to Him and the more you know Him, the more beautiful you are."
