Can we be real for a moment? Sometimes the “feel good” phrases don’t help. Sometimes even reciting Bible verses doesn’t change anything. We know in our heads we’re supposed to put our worth in Jesus. We know in our heads we’re loved, and that the attention of the world doesn’t matter. But sometimes ”knowing it… Continue reading Beauty and Self-Esteem: the Point We’re Missing (Pt. 1, the Love of God)
