Publishers Description Have you ever looked into the mirror and seen someone other than yourself? Or maybe you've passed by a store window and caught a glimpse of your reflection-a reflection that you have learned to criticize. Too many women live their lives thinking that the body God blessed them with is flawed, awkward, or just downright not acceptable. The secular views of today have completely overshadowed the true meaning of beauty, and the image of the female body has radically been skewed. Come and take the challenge of going against the rest of the world and discovering the truth about what it means to be beautiful. It's amazing what you'll see with EYES WIDE OPEN. Tammy Grace travels central Ohio as a Christian motivational speaker and performer. She knows firsthand how it feels to be an adolescent girl, living in a world that proclaims to know exactly what beauty is, but finding her self-image unfitting by its standards. Knowing the Lord all her life didn't prevent her from detonating many emotional land mines along the way. God has taken the rough experiences of her past and added healing. Now, she has combined them with her passion for dance and music to reach out to teenage girls. She rose from the hurt of her youth to enjoy a successful career in banking, and later gave up her career to spend more time with her three children and ever-supportive husband. Tammy has been actively working with the youth at her home church, Centenary United Methodist since 2001.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eyes Wide Open?
life-changing study Dec 3, 2008
Eyes Wide Open made a huge impact for me (a girl struggling with all the self-image concerns characteristic of a teenage girl) when I did the study my sophomore year in high school with a group of girls from my church. Now in college, the study's message continues to stay with me. Using scripture to demonstrate and show how God views me and all of his creation, it successfully challenged the traditional "world perception of beauty" and caused me to recognize my own worth. This study gave me confidence, as well as new insight and a much stronger and more personal relationship with God. I highly recommend it to any middle school or high school girl.
