Fierce Beauty

As I was finishing up this new non-fiction by Kim Meeder, I ran across this video and thought "what better way to show what this book is all about???" please watch this video and then see my review below :)

My Review:
Kim has lived an amazing life, full of daring mountain climbs and painful memories...and as she opens up her heart for all of us to see, she points out that we are to remember that we are made in His image...for His glory and delight.  We don't have to conform to the world's standards and cat calls of what beuaty is (weight, style, new gadgets, best hair, etc) fact, we have to do the opposite: we have to fight back and bury ourselves in a relationship with God.
I loved her ability to tell a story, her wisdom to find Truth in the places in her life that were hard to live and willingness to share of herself to guide me to look up!

Cover Details:
True beauty is not about how you look…but how you live.
Women are constantly bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important than who we are. It’s time for a clarion call back to the truth.
Journey with gifted storyteller Kim Meeder as she encourages women to see that true value is defined by our Creator and that our worth has a purpose of eternal proportions.
Real beauty isn’t a look, it’s an action. It can be found by making one crucial, life-defining choice—to lay down personal ambitions and selfish desires, pick up your sword of encouragement, and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. As you do, fierce beauty is revealed—along with lasting value, fulfillment, and joy.
In Fierce Beauty, Kim shares inspiring true stories from her own life of adventure, love, and loss—including her parents’ shocking death when she was nine years old and her struggles with self acceptance, knowing God, and standing for Him. 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?
