Beauty by the Book: Seeing Yourself as God Sees Youby Nancy Stafford
Synopses & Reviews
From celebrated Hollywood starlets to the covers of Cosmo, our society seems obsessed with beauty. Actress and Main Floor host Nancy Stafford (best known for her starring role as Michelle Thomas on Matlock) digs below our culture's fixation on outward appearance to show you that true beauty is more than skin-deep. "Every woman has beauty," says Stafford, "but not everyone sees it. I want you to see it." In Beauty by the Book she bares her heart to readers, laying out the Scriptures, promises, and truths women need to know to find their true value. Her liberating reflections will help you see yourself as God sees you — worthy, lovable, and beautiful.“Mirror, Mirror, on the W all…”
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Do you see a unique individual created in the image of Beauty itself—one chosen, Cherished, and valued in the eyes of God? If not, you may be looking in the wrong mirror—one distorted by emotional wounds, lies from your past, or the unrealistic standards of our culture.
“Everyone has beauty and worth,” says Nancy Stafford, “but not everyone sees it. I want you to see it.”
Nancy shares her own poignant story and holds up the true mirror of God’s Word—inviting you to see yourself as God sees you, to absorb His truth, and to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the King is enthralled by your beauty!
A former Miss Florida explains how the secrets to outer beauty are found in listening to God, providing Scriptural passages and select writings that help women overcome societal barriers. Original.
Nancy Stafford graduated from the University of Florida and reigned as Miss Florida. After landing her first role on the NBC-TV daytime drama The Doctors, she became a series regular on St. Elsewhere and as Andy Griffith's law partner on Matlock. Nancy now hosts Main Floor, a syndicated series featuring the latest fashion, beauty, and lifestyle trends. She lives with her husband, Larry Myers, a professional musician and pastor, outside of Los Angeles, and frequently addresses women's groups, colleges, churches, and other organizations.
