Here is a 5 part series of articles I wrote this year about beauty. I hope you find them helpful and encouraging.


  • Are We Attractive Enough?

    Do you ever struggle with feeling unattractive for your husband? You look at other women, sometimes actresses or women in magazines and think, “I can’t compete with them.” You may be 20 pounds (or more) heavier than you were 3 or more babies ago and numerous years ago…

  • Body Beautiful – Part 4: Beauty help: is it wrong?

    The question of “is it appropriate for a Christian woman to wear make-up” came up as a comment and I’d like to address that in a post. First, as always, I’d like to look at some scriptures.

    Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Prov 31:30 (this seems to be the theme verse for this series)
