Speaking Up on Behalf of the Children (they need to hear truth.)

During the Trump presidency, I mostly chose not to speak publicly about his campaign, feeling instead that my calling is to help young women with their self-esteem. During Covid I held back too. I had strong opinions about it, but viruses aren’t my lane either. So for the most part I didn’t speak on social media about the deceit I saw in both political theaters.

It is now time for me to speak. I will no longer be silent on a topic that is warping the self-image and body image of young people.

We are watching a grievous lie spread like gangrene before our very eyes. If abortion is not evil enough, feminists and the far left are now promoting experimentation on children. This generation of young people are literally the guinea pigs to hormone blockers and surgeries that destroy their reproductive systems and permanently mar their bodies.

The push to teach children to form a separate “gender identity” from their biological reality is creating a schism in their selfhood. This is detrimental to young minds. This man-made theology lies to them about who they are, who they are created to be, and what magnificent, brilliant, beautiful bodies they have–– born male or female with purpose and intention.
What they need to hear is truth. They are marvelously made, perfectly created in the image of God. He is their Maker.
Nothing man carves with a scalpel will ever touch the perfection of a child made in the image of God. Nothing, ever.
That’s the truth and somebody’s got to say it.

About the Author: Jennifer

Jennifer Strickland is a wife, mom, TEDx speaker, and former professional model. She is the author of Girl Perfect, More Beautiful Than You Know, and Beautiful Lies, among other books and Bible studies that teach women their worth in God’s eyes. Since leaving the modeling industry, she founded URMore.org, a non-profit ministry that provides resources to hurting women and girls. Her favorite moments are found working on the family ranch with her husband, who she calls “the Cowboy”; in her kitchen, concocting a new version of her famous spaghetti; or spending time with their three precious children.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

At the age of 18, I was recovering from an eating disorder, cutting, and suicide when I read Jennifer Strickland’s book Girl Perfect and it changed my life. At the age of 33, as I travel the world reaching youth for the gospel, this is the only book I recommend to girls who are struggling. The Lord has truly anointed Jennifer’s words through her story, not only to address the struggles of today’s generation of girls, but also to walk them through the healing necessary for victory.

“The ‘P’ word [perfection] may be the heaviest burden women bear. All the misguided things we do to attain it can keep us away from what we need most – the unconditional love of God the Father. The Girl Perfect Study Guide gives you a map to the wholeness you were created for.”

“The Girl Perfect Study Guide shatters the lies girls and women believe and points to the ultimate truth, which really does set us free. I am confident that this study will help thousands discover a beauty, purpose, and worth that truly lasts. Thank you Jen for exposing the ‘perfect life’ and inviting girls to experience God’s ‘perfect love.'”

One of the best testaments to what Jennifer is doing for the young girls and women of today is a comment from my eleven-year-old granddaughter: “Grammy, I want to read this book and hear her again. She’s good and I learned a lot.” This is exactly what I experienced from a grown-up perspective when I was introduced to Jennifer Strickland’s amazing story. Read it and see if you don’t get the real story from an icon model and a powerful speaker of truth.”
