you are more beautiful than you think

i needed this today.

these past 2 days i have felt like i was being crushed under a two-ton pile of stinking garbage telling me how not good enough i am.

in my job, as a wife, as a mom, as a friend, on the scale and in the mirror. 

and then my friend emily posts this on facebook.

and of course my heart takes it even farther to what jesus' description of me might sound like.

what a beautiful illustration from dove of how brutal we are to ourselves as women. on the lies we've been told and sold.


  1. This may not seem like much coming from someone who just creeps and reads your blog, but I think you are incredible!
    The love you have for your family shines through whenever you talk about them, as does your love for Jesus.
    I can't tell you how many times I've been having a crappy day, only to have my spirits lifted by reading something on your page!
    So on those days when you feel like you're not doing enough, just remember how much of a positive impact you have on all your readers!
