CHRISTMAS BUNDLE—Beautiful Lies & The Invitation
BEAUTIFUL LIES—Book & Study Guide
You Are More Than What Men, Mirrors, and Magazines Tell You
When women and girls look to men, mirrors, magazines, masquerades, and the media for a picture of their value, they see a grossly distorted reflection of who they are. Former professional model Jennifer Strickland knows all too well the despair women and girls experience by allowing the world to define them. Fifteen years in the most glamorized industry in the world landed Jennifer on Giorgio Armani’s runway one month and trying to kill herself the next. Anorexia, drugs, and being treated like “a thing in a world of things” left her wondering where on earth to turn for her true reflection.
Now she has dedicated her life to telling the truth: that when women turn away from these mirrors of the world and look into the never-changing mirror of the Word, their beauty, purpose, and identity become crystal clear. They are God’s beloved daughters, hand-made creations, lights and ambassadors, designed to reflect His image to a lost and divided world.
