Item description for Graffiti: Learning to See the Art in Ourselves by Erin Davis...
Overview Young women today face many self-image and identity issues. Fueled by media in magazines, movies, and television, they are presented with a standard of physical beauty few obtain. In "Graffiti:Learning to see the Art in Ourselves" Erin Davis looks to the Bible to see what God says about our identity and what is beautiful. Ideal for women of all ages, "Graffiti" will open your eyes to the source of true and lasting beauty.
Publishers Description Our culture is driven by a concept of beauty that negatively impacts adolescent girls. The Scriptures are full of assurances regarding our identity in Christ, inherent worth to the Creator, and the secrets to tapping into the source of true and lasting beauty, yet girls and young women continue to struggle with their focus on outer beauty. In "Graffiti: Learning to See the Art in Ourselves," Erin Davis applies the language of God's Word on identity, beauty, and worth to the life of a contemporary young woman. In fact, women who have never adequately dealt with this issue will find themselves reviewing their youth, and redirecting their spiritual eyes.

Kid's ministry Aug 28, 2008
this book is for our church library. didn't realize it was a leader's copy but we'll use it anyway.
I'm encouraged now Aug 18, 2008
I've read many things that were supposed to help my self esteem with how I looked and felt about myself. But after reading Graffiti a boost of encouragment stayed with me. I continue to remind myself of the book Graffiti whenever I feel down on myself and what not. expect uplift and encouragment when reading this book. I felt like I was on the same level as the auther Erin Davis. I could relate to many situations and feelings that she explains in her book. One of my favorite things about Graffiti is it encouraged me to open up scriptures in the Bible whenever she would spat out scripture verses to read. what better source can you have than the Word itself. Reading Graffiti and then referring to the Bible was most fun and even more encouraging than the fact of relating so well to Erin Davis. I highly recommend! :)
Great insight! Aug 15, 2008
Ms. Davis is in touch with what is on the minds of women, both young and not so young. All of us have experienced that feeling of hopelessness when it comes to body image. This book guides the reader into a new, improved, celestial view of ourselves. If we see ourselves as God does, our lives are richer and we are free to fulfill our positive potential. This is a great read for girls of all ages. I just wish it had been written when I was raising my daughter. It is a great resource for mothers and daughters and will open up lines of communication between them. I congratulate the writer on this work and look forward to reading more offerings from her!
Remember my HS years well . . . Aug 7, 2008
I remember well the distorted vision I had of myself growing up. Peers would taunt me with teasing type rhymes. Yes, I would chuckle with them but when it grew night I would release the pent up tendered tears into the puffs of pillows on my bed. I liked the dark for no one could see me cry. I avoided mirrors for it brought disdain to me and I saw nothing but flaws with no possibility of change near by. I use to cry out to the "if only" world: "If only.... I had the body of Rachel Welch, the hair of Farrah Fawcett, the voice of Marie Osmond, the eyes of so and so and the smile of so and so THEN I would be beautiful. (I know, showing my age aren't I?) No one ever told me I was beautiful. No one. It wasn't until I was probably in my late 30's that I began to get an understanding of God's Word and Promises. I have learned through life experiences and Gods grace of who I am in him and better yet, Who He is in me! I know more about what beautiful really is. Erin. . . you are BEAUTIFUL! The words written by your hand have been etched in my mind and heart for they will be of great help to me in ministering to those who need words of understanding, acceptance, love and hope. Thanks for your humility to expose/write your heart and life down on paper. Indeed it is a beautiful offering to our Lord. (PS: What a beautiful hearted servant of a husband God has given you!) Blessings of JOY to you and yours!
A book to share... Jul 26, 2008
Maybe like you, I approached this book thinking that I had read several other books with similar messages. Although that is true, this one seemed to present its message with such clarity that I find myself believing the truths. Identifying with Erin wasn't hard because we have all been there, but I enjoyed how she asked me to do more than just read over the questions, but answer them for myself. The author draws me in with her honesty and stories. The truth she shares isn't presented in an overwhelming manner, but rather penetrating. Her claims come from the source of truth, the Bible, which is a powerful tool. This books is truly a book to share. Pass it on to all the women in your life; they're beautiful. But do more than that, share with each other the struggle we all encounter about our worth. I feel like its something I've felt the need to keep hidden. That is a lie. And now its time to share.
