YOU ARE MORE.
You are seen. You are known. You are loved. You may not feel like that right now, but the truth is, you are worth more than you realize. No matter where you’ve been or what your past may be, your future awaits you. The pain you have been through can pave a pathway to brighter days, if you choose the right road forward.
You are more than the sum of your parts or the places you have been. You are more than your body’s shape and size. You are more than your social media following, and you are worth more than your worst moment.
Deep down, you know you are made with a purpose. You have dreams for your life. You have a destiny. All of our books, Bible studies, teaching videos, classes, and live events are meant to bring out the best in you.
JEN HAS BEEN FEATURED ON . . .
One day, I was a young girl in search of stardom, and it seemed like the next day I was Barbie for the 35th anniversary of the doll, walking Giorgio Armani’s runway, and appearing in Italian Vogue. Yet beneath all that, I was searching for more. I wanted love, a purpose, and I knew life was so much more than what we see on the surface.
Through a series of painful events, I found myself on my knees, begging God to send me love and to heal my wounded heart. With my emaciated body in desperate need of health and wellness, I left modeling in search of a more authentic life. And this is only the beginning of the story.
DO YOU FEEL CALLED TO WRITE A BOOK?
If you’ve dreamt of writing book and don’t know how to start — or finish — I can help you achieve that dream. As an eight-times published author with a Master’s in Writing, I teach women how to wrestle their writing schedule to the ground, find their best path to publishing, write through the pain of their pasts, and reach the readers who need their message the most.
Your story matters. Your dream matters. And I can help you get there.
To inspire women and girls to understand their worth in God’s eyes by teaching them their value, identity, and purpose in Christ.
We believe that centuries of patriarchal oppression, abuses against women, radical feminism, and the media’s false images of misguided femininity have contributed to a detrimental view of self among young women and teen girls. Because the media promotes enticing and deceptive views of women regarding their value, we are facing an epidemic of unhealthy proportions among girls worldwide. Further, the cultural teaching of gender ideology confuses sex, gender, and the sanctity of our bodies.
By teaching young people a biblical understanding of identity, worth, and purpose, we are helping restore the sanctity of the human body as defined by a Creator God. The Word of God is very clear about the value of a woman’s sexuality, the honor Jesus places upon women, and the beauty and design of our created bodies.
As a voice for your value, U R More contributes to powerful live events and produces life-changing resources—including books, Bible studies, videos and podcasts—that expose the media’s lies and teach the unchanging truth of our value in God’s eyes. Our mission is to help young women develop a healthy view of their bodies, sexuality, and worth.
We believe that all secure foundations are built upon the wisdom of the Bible and the Judeo-Christian ethic, rather than on humanistic teachings that instruct girls to define their own “truths.” Our teaching is firmly established by the Word of God and helps young people build their identity from that rock
If you are interested in putting on a U R More event in your school, church, or community, please reach out to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a speaking request form for our Founder, Jennifer Strickland. We are very accustomed to teaching in public schools and secular environments that do not promote a Christian message. In fact our name, U R More, came from Jennifer’s teaching in public schools: “You are more than your worst moment; you are more than what meets the eye; you have gifts, talents, and abilities that point to your purpose.” Without mentioning biblical principles, we are able to teach young people to develop an identity that is unchanging according to people’s opinions of them. Likewise, in a faith-based setting, Jennifer unveils the lies of the media while promoting healthy self-worth as established by the Word of God
If you are a young woman in crisis or are looking for resources to help a woman or girl in crisis, please see our HELP page. As a ministry, we will connect you to counselors or inpatient care centers if that is the best route for you. Alternatively, our ministry will provide you with study material that helps women and girls understand their identity in God’s eyes.
The teen bundle is a great way to share the message of value and identity with teen girls 13 & up. It includes Girl Perfect, Jen’s incredilbe story; More Beautiful Than You Know, her signature teaching on media, and self-worth; and 21 Myths (Even Good) Girls Believe About Sex, our most valuable resource on dating and sex. This is a perfect gift for young women, and will impact their lives for the better!
