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 your heart and what you do to glorify God, because God looks at your heart.”

Do you think your beautiful?

“Yes, because God created everything beautiful.”

When do you feel the most beautiful?

“When I am thinking about how God made us, how He made us beautiful, I feel the most beautiful then. Or when I am really dressed up.”

What do you wish women knew about real beauty?

“That God is looking at your heart and you should just do everything to glorify Him. Because that’s what’s most beautiful to Him. That’s all that matters.”
