I’ve been searching my whole life for beauty. Not in the world—there’s plenty of that—in the crimson of a cardinal’s feather, in the sound of waves crashing along a shore, in the melody of a Beatles’ ballad, or in a Chagall stained glass window. The world is filled with beauty, but me, well that was another story. It took me years to discover my true beauty, to fully grasp I am made in the image of my Creator, and therefore, I am beautiful. The incredible thing is…so are you. You were marvelously made by God to inspire awe. No matter what the world tries to tell you, no matter what you try to tell yourself. No one can rob you of the incredible true identity God instilled in you. I tell stories (through books, blogs, and speaking) in hopes of helping you discover what took me so long to see: your beautiful true reflection in Christ.
I'm so glad to see Laura L. Smith writing about such serious and important issues. Kudos to her for being brave enough to write the truth. ~ New York Times bestselling author, Tosca Lee
"Laura has such an intelligence and wit, such a passion. She is a living, breathing testimony to how God so abundantly equips those He calls, and He has so clearly equipped and called her to be an encourager of women." ~women's ministry leader
In writing that's raw, relevant, and real, Smith goes where few authors dare to go: straight into the heart of today's young woman. ~Amy Parker, bestselling author
