Synopses & Reviews
The thing that is most beautiful about a woman is her confidence, but her confidence is deeply rooted in her beauty and is quickly deflated by comparison.
To solve this dilemma, todays society strives for flawless beauty; even the godly wrestle with feelings of determination or despair over their image, but only the Supreme Stylist can give you a makeover that lasts a lifetime! He did it for many women in the Bible such as Eve, Mary and the woman at the well and their examples will inspire you to let God change you as well.
Image- and life-coach Catrina Welch shares fresh insights regarding image issues that women face and the various coping mechanisms that they use. She explains the six general styles of feminine beauty and how each of them deals with confidence conflicts according to their clothing personality. Tamar and Abigail were both women in abusive relationships but they each handled their situations differently. Catrina shares why she feels one of them must have had the image identity (Img.ID) of a glamorous Romantic and the other was a sporty Natural. Understanding others and yourself is the key to confidence.
Confident Beauty includes simple surveys that will guide you in assessing which Img.ID you are and general guidelines will teach you how to accentuate your individual style. These are the keys to empowering you to take care of yourself in order to forget about yourself and focus on others.
Most importantly, this powerful and applicable unfolding of Gods Word will reveal your Creators heart toward your emotional, spiritual and physical beauty. This Truth is the key that will set you free to be a woman of Confident Beauty that doesnt wear off like makeup does!
Confident Beauty is not another message meant to convict the Christian woman into squelching her desire to be attractive, instead its insights will compel you to reflect the image of God with beauty and confidence. Image- and Life- Coach, Catrina Welch, shares far more than “what not to wear;” she addresses confidence conflicts and reveals the image identities (Img.IDs) of various women in the Bible such as Eve, Mary and the woman at the well, and guides you through a self-assessment to discover your personal Img.ID. Understanding the various styles of femininity and how they each reflect the glory of God in their own way releases women from the trap of comparison and the shame of vanity. You can have confidence that is sincere and lasting when your beauty is balanced with faith and fashion.
