Is Beauty Only Skin Deep?

"You were not created to be a princess of entitlement, but a warrior, fighting to bring love and hope to the world." Kim Meeder

When we think of beauty, many times we think of a persons appearance. But is beauty only skin deep? According to Kim Meeder in her book Fierce Beauty, there is so much more to becoming the beautiful woman God desires for us. I received a copy of this book to review from Waterbrook Multnomah blogging program. It is a inspiring look at the importance of us, as women, being beautiful on the inside vs the outside. I have really enjoyed reading it. Each chapter is a short story of some of Kim's adventures with love and loss, and her struggles with self-acceptance, knowing God and standing for Him.

Kim talks about how we are constantly bombarded with the worlds lie that our outward appearance is more important than who we are. Real Beauty is found in living for the Lord and allowing Him to be LORD of our lives. We need to learn to serve Him with our abilities, gifts and talents. Sometimes we are called to take up the sword and fight for what matters most.

Kim has written several books and operates the Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in central Oregon. The ranch is a non-profit organization that rescues abused and neglected horses and pairs them with disadvantaged children offering them a place of  safety, peace and hope.  You can read more about the ranch HERE.
Or follow Kim on Goodreads.

  1. I think it is wonderful when we finally get past the skin and can see a person for who they truly are. I loved reading about that youth ranch. What a great organization.
