Take a good, long look in the mirror, what do you see? Look a little deeper...do a thorough self-examination. Now, what are you worshipping...your own designer-influenced image or God? In Fierce Beauty: Choosing to Stand for What Matters Most, Kim Meeder shares short stories from her own life of adventure, love and loss including her parents' shocking death when she was only nine years old and her struggles with self-acceptance (don't we all struggle with this at one time in life?), knowing God and standing for Him, that will leave you challenged. You'll begin asking yourself these questions and will challenge women to to let their lives have the unique value and purpose that aren't found in worldly standards. This book will empower women to choose who they will honor with their life and pursue their true destiny found in Christ alone. Personally, I've never been a real "girly girl", so many women are bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important that who we are but this book gets back to the real truth: Real beauty isn't in a look, it's an action - laying down our own ambitions and desires and taking up the sword of encouragement and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. When you step into this way of living, fierce (true, real) beauty shines through along with bonuses like lasting value, fulfillment and JOY!!! Through it all, you’ll discover life lessons about trust, transformation, surrender, forgiveness, and genuine purpose. Ultimately, life comes down to one question: Will you serve yourself or your King? (As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord - Joshua 24:15)
