Discovering Authentic Beauty around the World
by Rebecca Friedlander
Pub Date 30 Apr 2019
I am reviewing a copy of Finding Beautiful through Baker Books and Netgalley:
Americans spend millions on products to make them more beautiful, or to help them loose weight as well as medical treatments that are meant to make them look younger. We set impossible standards setting ourselves up for failure and when we do fail we become angry with ourselves. Is beauty that difficult to obtain or are we perhaps looking at it in the wrong way?
This book includes engaging personal stories as well as before and after photography. Filmmaker Rebecca Friedlander shows the beauty of twelve women of various ethnicities and backgrounds empowering us to shatter the lies of rejection, doubt and low self esteem. Friendlander encourages us to utilize compelling biblical truth and questions.
I found Finding Beautiful to be a necessary book, one that helps us to define beautiful far beyond outward appearances and look inwardly. I find this book to be worthy of five out of five stars!
