My daughter picked up a magazine the other day and after reading only a few pages, said,
“Why is everyone so concerned about looking younger?”
Of course, to a child, looking younger is not exactly something to be desired, but she knows full well that most adult women are on a quest for forever-youth…forever-beauty by the world’s standards.
As a mother of 7, it is rather frustrating to combat our society’s ideals of what women should look like. I look like a mom, and for some reason, that is a bad thing.
But, wait a second…what does God say?
That’s what I love about Beauty by the Book by Laurie Cole! She takes women through a study of true beauty…
In our society, it is so important we teach young ladies what it really means to be beautiful by God’s standards. Those standards are eternal and real.
In Beauty By the Book, Laurie guides you in a study of 5 different kinds of women mentioned in the book of Proverbs. Some of these are women you should want to emulate and some…not so much. (So much can be learned by what kind of woman you ought not to be!)
This study digs deep into what biblical beauty is and aims to tear down the false standards of the world in favor of God’s standard. This is where efforts like Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty fall short – – Right problem. Wrong solution.
And moms, it begins with you! Your daughters formulate their own definition of beauty long before they hit their teen years. Their definition of beauty is often based on what they learn from you.
Wishing you were someone else?
Yep, they are catching all that. You need to learn NOW what it means to be beautiful in God’s eyes! Then, pass it on to your daughters!
Laurie has also written a mother-daughter Bible study to help you guide your daughter toward true beauty (however, be aware this study is for older girls, so wait to use it until your daughters are mature enough to handle the content).
