How do you feel when you look in the mirror? Not attractive enough Not smart enough Not sexy enough Not fit enough Not creative enough Not strong enough Not good enough . . . and therefore, not beautiful. We are broken and ashamed to be so. In our eyes, brokenness makes us unlovable and unusable. But through scripture, God is clear that He sees us the way we already are in Christ: deeply loved and abundantly influential. Yet we hang back, believing instead the toxic not-enough labels and worrying that God’s love and promises cover everybody else — except us. Hello, Beauty Full explodes the shame-based mythology of not-enoughness. Instead of believing the hiss of the enemy, we can learn to see our beauty the way God does. Chapters include new perspectives on your: Voice Lessons: Beauty in Your Unique Personality Valuable Vessels: Beauty in Your Physical Body A Womb of Your Own: Beauty in Your Creative Purpose Scar Stories: Beauty in Your Painful Story Have Your Sway: Beauty in Your Influential Legacy Why settle for emptiness when Jesus came to give you live to the full? Lean in to hear — and embrace — God’s heavenly message, straight from His heart to yours: “Hello, beauty full!”Show more
Find beauty and hope by facing and dealing with the messiness of family life. The family is an imperfect institution. Broken people become broken parents who make broken families. But actually, broken is normal and exactly where God wants us. In The Beauty of Broken, Elisa Morgan, one of today’s most respected female Christian leaders, for the first time shares her very personal story of brokenness—from her first family of origin to the second, represented by her husband and two grown children. Over the years, Elisa’s family struggled privately with issues many parents must face, including: alcoholism and drug addiction infertility and adoption teen pregnancy and abortion divorce, homosexuality, and death Each story layers onto the next to reveal the brokenness that comes into our lives without invitation. “We’ve bought into the myth of the perfect family,” says Elisa. “Formulaic promises about the family may have originated in well-meaning intentions, but such thinking isn’t realistic. It’s not helpful. It’s not even kind.” Instead she offers hope in the form of “broken family values” that allow parents to grow and thrive with God. Values such as commitment, humility, relinquishment, and respect carry us to new places of understanding. Owning our brokenness shapes us into God’s best idea for us and enables us to discover the beauty in ourselves and each member of our family.Show more
