- Brave. Challenging. Honest. by Hannah Heather on 1/17/2012
“We are not Christians simply because we call our selves such. For me, being a Christian means turning away from my selfish, self-centered life and turning toward Christ and trusting Him to lead me.”
Fierce Beauty encourages us to face the battles in our lives with faith and courage and to keep our eyes on our King. This book reminds us what the Bible says in Romans 12:2, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.”
As I read, I could feel the authentic, raw emotions that Kim felt during each life experience. I wanted to know more about each person and their lives as she reviled them. I felt each pain, each tear and each victory. She had a real way of reminding me of my own insecurities and self worth as well as where it should be coming from. Read this book and you will put things back into perspective.
The unfortunately thing is, that as I finished the book, I found my self wanting more. As the mother of four girls and the oldest of four sisters, I see the lie that has entangled humans since the beginning of time. Idol worship. Self worship. Self worth. I felt that this book just skimmed the surface of just how important these topics are. This book hit essential points, but only superficially. I felt the discussion questions in the back where the most helpful and the most challenging to put these things into action in our every day lives. James 1:22 “Don’t just merely listen to the word… Do what it says.”
- awesome book! by 1kyteacher on 12/22/2011
I have just had the opportunity to review Kim Meeder's book Fierce Beauty: Choosing to Stand for What Matters Most, and I am pleased by what I have read. This is an excellent book for women who wish to strengthen their relationship with God.
In her book, Meeder illustrates how sin, any sin, can come between us and our Father. She uses personal experiences to show that our worth, our beauty, comes from God. We all struggle with something that pulls us away from our relationship with God, putting us before Him. In each of her accounts, Meeder clearly shows a parallel of how the event symbolizes sin in our lives. I liked how she saw the beauty in her experiences and sought out God's purpose in those experiences. It is clear that Meeder believes all things have a purpse, and that purpose is to honor God. She clearly points to using whatever we have in our lives, whether it be a gift or a smile, to encourage others, to steer them toward God. Meeder drives home the fact that we are to be warriors for Christ and all that he stands for.
This book can be used in a book study by using the discussion questions in the back.
