Category: The “Beautiful You” Project

The “Beautiful You” Project is a series of articles, personal journal entries, poems, and song lyrics that God has used to heal my heart and given me to speak to the subject of image, worth and identity in the souls of women from all walks of life and experiences. It is called a “project” because our transformation is on-going.

The Transforming Power of Beholding God

EVERYTHING is necessary. All we taste, touch, see, experience. It's all necessary. It serves one purpose.....to put us back in touch with Life and He Who is Light, Life, Love. Yes.

Let Love……

Your love. Deeper than the darkest ocean. Touching my depths. Healing the wound that came when hearts turn away from you. Healing the hurt I never knew owned so much of my soul. It has to be deep, love,  to go down so far. To go down into the lost places. lost hope. lost love. lost sight. ...

Saved By Grace (Song)

In the shadows of shame I have hidden away Covered in the scar of sin that claimed me. In the darkest of nights I believed the lie That I could not be loved or embraced but then the Light of Jesus came And rescued me from every pain Said "come out my child, don't be ...

DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? The Art of Truly Looking

I was having a moment today as I recalled a memory of my sister.  Almost six years ago, our family was going through photographs of our oldest sister, who had just passed away suddenly from complications of diabetes. As part of the funeral service we were putting together a video pictorial of her life to ...

What Makes You Hide?

What makes you turn and go the other way? Covering your face so the world won't recognize that it's you. Maybe if you close your eyes, they won't see you. That way you won't owe anyone anything? What makes you hide? Is it your clumsy way of living? Your lazy ways or sharp eyes? Is ...

Learning to be a Daughter

So, I'm learning to be a daughter of God. Just a daughter. Nothing else. No expectation but just to accept the fact that I am loved, accepted and deeply longed for. Learning to rest without worry. Trust without fear. To rely totally on the fact that God loves me and I can never be separated ...

We revel in all of our industry, progress and wisdom and we are none the better for it. Only worse. ...

So Close to the Floor

I never knew You lived so close to the floor but every time I am bowed down crushed by this weight of grief I feel Your hand on my head Your breath on my cheek Your tears on my neck You never tell me to pull myself together to stem the flow of many years ...

Taking Back Our Health!

Healthcare professionals are wonderful gifts from God! They help us in trauma, and life threatening situations and can help us answer some of the most complex questions we have about our health. But we cannot get to the place where we give all of our power and choices for health over to them. I have come to understand through battling ...
