Real Beauty

I received this video in an email. I thought it was compelling.

I worry that my children are growing up in a world that emphasizes these values. With 4 girls, I realize how much I need to tell them how beautiful they already are and to build their self-esteem as they grow. It’s part of what I can do to help them battle the pressures that will befall them.

I can only hope that they will win.

But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

1 Samuel 16:7

    That’s awesome Cherie. Your YW are blessed to have you in that position. I was amazed at this video. I had heard of the “Photoshop touch-up” but I never thought it was this extreme.
