“Beauty is on the inside.” We know it’s true . . . yet sometimes it seems tough to fully believe it. What would your world be like if you truly felt beautiful and lived every day full of that confidence and joy?Fashion journalist Lauren Scruggs knows how it feels to search for beauty. She grew up knowing of God’s love, but never fully understood what that love meant, or how it extended to the deepest parts of her soul—until a horrible accident that resulted in the loss of both her left eye and hand. In her darkest hours, everything Lauren believed was tested. Yet it was there that God showed her where real beauty comes from: the unfailing love of the Creator. God’s love is what truly makes us lovely.Using stories from Lauren’s accident, recovery, and experiences in the fashion world, Your Beautiful Heart explores issues that teen girls face every day: body image, self-worth, peer pressure, and much more. Whether you read the book on your own or with a group of friends, Lauren’s personal message of love, faith, and value will show you what it means to be a girl who radiates with true beauty.
Lauren Scruggs shares her story of “Your Beautiful Heart.” Lauren doesn’t draw attention to herself in this book. I originally thought this was going to be Lauren’s story but instead I got a book that was all about encouragement and life. I loved it. Scruggs focus in this book is to point out how God is there for the reader. Each chapter of this book begins with a real life story that helps engage the reader to open their heart and follow along in the story.
This book is set up like a devotional. The reader can read each chapter at the time or read a section at a time. The book is set up to be encouraging and not take everything in all at once. Some of the best books are ones that set up to take in at pieces and not all at once. I think this book has really good morals and is meant to be an eye opener for girls on how Jesus is their for each person and he believes in our beautiful hearts.
People don’t need acceptance from the world. It shouldn’t matter what the world thinks about you. It should only matter what you think about you and what Jesus thinks about you. This story shows 31 different reflections on love, faith, and friendship. This book is all about becoming a girl that shines. I think it was fantastic.
