'When you look in the mirror ... what do you see? A girl who doesn't quite fit in? Someone who wants to be noticed? But do you ever stop to wonder what God sees?' In this workbook-style interactive study by Angela Thomas, you will explore these questions and more. The first chapter gets to the heart of the matter immediately - 'Do You Think I'm Beautiful?' You will be challenged to think about yourself without pretending, in order to be real with others and with God.

The next chapters encourage you to look deeper, to seek a real relationship with God, and to make that relationship the most important one in your life. The author also discusses feelings of unbelief, 'soul clutter', such as insecurity and fear, and different types of sin. There are directions on how to return to a right relationship with God, as well as how to learn and grow. The workbook comes with a CD of the author speaking to a group of teen girls. Angela Thomas's stories about her own life touched me - they make everything she says more real and relevant.

Regardless of the pressures and situations you may find yourself in, Beautiful: Seeing Yourself Through God's Eyes will speak to you. It is written simply but does not condescend. The interactive sections will make you think and help you to look inside yourself. If you struggle with emptiness or low self esteem, and are searching for something to fill your life, this book guides and directs you to God.
