Fierce Beauty Book Review

As a christian woman, I often struggle with the world's idea of beauty.  We are constantly bombarded with the message that constantly tell us how to dress, look, what to eat in order to be beautiful.  But I know that beauty comes from withing and I often find the need to start there.
On my quest to a better me, I came across a book called "Fierce Beauty- Choosing to stand for what matters most", by Kim Meeder.  Because these issues really touch my heart, I knew I wanted to review this book.

About the book...

True beauty is not about how you look…but how you live.

Women are constantly bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important than who we are. It’s time for a clarion call back to the truth.
Journey with gifted storyteller Kim Meeder as she encourages women to see that true value is defined by our Creator and that our worth has a purpose of eternal proportions.
Real beauty isn’t a look, it’s an action. It can be found by making one crucial, life-defining choice—to lay down personal ambitions and selfish desires, pick up your sword of encouragement, and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. As you do, fierce beauty is revealed—along with lasting value, fulfillment, and joy.
In Fierce Beauty, Kim shares inspiring true stories from her own life of adventure, love, and loss—including her parents’ shocking death when she was nine years old and her struggles with self acceptance, knowing God, and standing for Him. Through it all, you’ll discover life lessons about trust, transformation, surrender, forgiveness, and genuine purpose.
Ultimately, life comes down to one question: Will you serve yourself or your King?

My Thoughts

Fierce Beauty is written much like a storybook.  The author paints very vivid pictures with her words as she shares deeply about her personal life situations.  At times though, the storytelling is overwhelming for me to read.  She describes things in such great detail that I found myself wanting her to "get to the point" of the story.  Maybe it's because I don't read fiction much. 

On the other hand, many of her testimonies are heart wrenching as she shares how God brought her through each of them.  Many chapters are very heavy in a sense and cause you to take a Selah pause and sit and reflect on the message the author is trying to convey.

At only 175 pages, this book is easy to read and has some pretty profound messages in it if you don't mind the storybook feel of it.

*I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
