Redefining Beautiful

“Not feeling very beautiful? Learn what beauty is from God’s perspective.

Revolve speaker Jenna Lucado has teamed up with her dad, Max Lucado, to bring girls a fresh perspective on what they need to live a life of peace, joy, and confidence. What does God see when He looks at them? And how does a girl catch that vision?

Jenna reveals life accessories that are essential, and which single accessory is a real must-have to give teens a look they love—a look that says they are comfortable with who they are and secure and confident. What’s the all-important accessory? Love from a father. But what happens when there is no loving father in sight, no daddy to tell them they are beautiful?

Through conversational “girl time” Jenna reveals that when we look to God as our Father, He can change our focus, our look, and our lives. With affirmation from Max, Redefining Beautiful will change the way girls look at God, themselves, and the people around them.” Thomas Nelson Publishers

Well, this was fun. I haven’t heard Jenna Lucado in person yet and this was the first book I’ve seen from her. She does come from a very prolific literary family so I figured it would probably be decent at least. It was very good. It’s straight forward and easy reading without being overly simplistic. She writes in a very conversational style and after reading for a few pages she feels like a good friend or more importantly like someone you’d want your pre-teen/teen daughter to be good friends with. Covering a wide range from how you look physically to how you see yourself and ultimately how you believe God see you, Jenna moves from her experience to asking the reader for her perspective. It’s very much a guided journal with Jenna along for company.
Jenna shows girls that even though they may not be in the best circumstances they still have a beauty to offer the world that is real and authentic and comes from the security of their relationship with the One who created them just the way they are. She draws attention to the uniqueness of the journey each girl is on and encourages them to celebrate the special aspects of their personality and beauty. Beautifully done!
