Life Changing Jul 20, 2006
This book will absolutely enhance your relationship with God to a whole new level! This book was chosen as a guide for my Summer Bible Study. We are a group of college-age girls and were looking for a book that could really speak to us on the topic of being beautiful in the eyes of God and this book was it! Each chapter teaches a valuable lesson about God's love for each and every one of us. God has used Angela Thomas to reach women in our contemporary world of today. Thomas pulls everything from scripture with a "I'm not making this stuff up" tone. What a wonderful book!
I loved it! Thank you, Angela! May 15, 2006
Angela Thomas wrote the words down on paper that have been on my heart for years. All of the regrets I have, all the times I let myself down in an attempt to find true love, everything is written in this book and speaks to me. I can feel God's arms wrap around me and give me that perfect love only He can give. He is working on wiping away all the tears of foolishness and loss I feel. He is a wonderful God and the romancer of my heart.
I feel blessed to have read this book.
What question is your soul asking, crying and searching for??? Apr 17, 2006
This book should be read by every woman and girl! Some people might be shying away from the title cuz they think well, I'm alright in the looks department, OR, well of course I'm not, no need to read THAT book!! Or they might just think it has nothing to do with them.
And Angela tells you you might be right!!
Your question might be different and might not be about being beautiful. You see, there are other questions your soul might be asking.
For me it was "Do you love me?" Based on my childhood of foster homes and multiple adoptions, it became a very critical part of who I am. Being bounced around so much it felt like nobody loved me at all, even if they 'said' they did. And the churches I grew up in were based on the fearful, wrathful God. That when you prayed you'd better make sure to ask forgiveness for every sin, and even for anything you might not be able to remember, just to be safe. THEN, and only then, you could ask God for something as long as you didn't really expect an answer cuz after all, He's busy and who did I think I was that God would pay attention to me? And have a "Personal" relationship? Oh no, I'm definitely not good enough!!
This book has really opened my eyes and shown me a whole new way to a relationship with God!! It's not about how perfect I am (which God knows I'm NOT) It's about being loved, unconditionally, all the time, no matter what, no matter where, no matter what I look like, feel like, or have done, thought and thought about doing! He just loves me, for me, thinks I'm the greatest, no matter what.
In our lives, we search for that kind of unconditional love relationship. Some are 'lucky' enough to find it. Some experience it for a short while. Some never do at all. I was lucky enough to find it in my mom. She's actually my SECOND adopted mother. I was placed for adoption at 3, adopted at 5. Placed for adoption again at 8 and adopted at 10. She's the mom I got when I was 10. I'm 32 now. Even though I've had 3 mothers in my life, she's my one and only mom. I know that no matter what she loves me. She's my #1 fan and support and thinks I'm the absolute greatest daughter. My husband also loves me very much and knows me very well. I'm a mom now myself and know that unconditional love of parents.
And yet, these relationships pale in to the one we have/can have with THE ONE. God knows EVERYTHING about me, every mood, every thought, every desire, hope and dream. He knows my weaknesses, my deep dark secrets I don't want anybody to know. And He loves me. He thinks I'm beautiful. He wants to dance with me and show me how beautiful He thinks I am, so that I will believe it too and live my life with intention, becoming the woman that He sees when He looks at me, the beautiful, confident, amazing person that I truly am.
Do you need this book? Absolutely! Who among you does not desire to be beautiful and lovely, to be known thoroughly inside and out, and be loved unconditionally? If you read this book, open your heart and spirit and ask God...what's my question? And then be willing to hear it and explore it and experience what only God can give you. You are a unique and beautiful woman, let God show you how much that's true!
A biblically sound, feel-good book Mar 24, 2006
I enjoyed the book. It was an easy read that made me feel good about myself, my life, my faith, and my God. There wasn't anything "earth shattering" or truly "new" in the book, but reminders of what we already know can often be helpful and uplifting. If you are struggling with who you are independent of your relationships or if you are just feeling a bit "down in the dumps," this is a good book to read. It incorporates personal testimony and anecdotes with scriptural references. A light read, full of deep Truths, may be exactly what we need when we're not feeling strong.
