What do you think beauty is?
“Being beautiful is being who God made you to be, and being happy with who you are. Everyone is beautiful in a different way and it’s cool to see God in everybody. You don’t have to be the model or what they show you on TV. You can just be who you are.”
How has our culture’s definition of beauty effected you?
“Once upon a time, I had a problem where I didn’t eat anything and I lost thirty pounds, and that was dumb. I wasn’t like, ‘Oh I want to be a model’, but you weigh 30 pounds less and your close fit better and you think, ‘Oh, this is nice.’ But it wasn’t worth it. When I realized that, I thought, ‘Forget this, I should have eaten that pizza.’ God is good, and He turned things around, and I’m totally fine now.”
What do you wish women knew about real beauty?
“Jesus loves us, loves us, loves us, loves us, and to say, ‘I don’t look good,’ is to insult the way He made us. My favorite biology fact is that out of like 70 trillion gene combinations, you got the one you got. And Jesus picked it.”
What do you think God finds beautiful in a woman?
“He is beautiful, and when you are like Him, He is beautiful in you.”
