Fierce Beauty review by Kim Meeder
About the book:
True beauty is not about how you look…
but how you live.
Women are constantly bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important than who we are. It’s time for a clarion call back to the truth.
Journey with gifted storyteller Kim Meeder as she encourages women to see that true value is defined by our Creator and that our worth has a purpose of eternal proportions.
Real beauty isn’t a look, it’s an action. It can be found by making one crucial, life-defining choice—to lay down personal ambitions and selfish desires, pick up your sword of encouragement, and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. As you do, fierce beauty is revealed—along with lasting value, fulfillment, and joy.
In Fierce Beauty, Kim shares inspiring true stories from her own life of adventure, love, and loss—including her parents’ shocking death when she was nine years old and her struggles with self acceptance, knowing God, and standing for Him. Through it all, you’ll discover life lessons about trust, transformation, surrender, forgiveness, and genuine purpose.
Ultimately, life comes down to one question: Will you serve yourself or your King?
Includes discussion guide for individuals or groups.
“You were not created to be a princess of entitlement
but a warrior, fighting to bring love and hope to the world.”
– Kim Meeder

I am sorry to say that I did not like this book. I wish I would have liked it. Just because I did not like it does not mean you will not like it. Give it a chance. Borrow a copy or read an chapter excerpt online. It might be the book you have been dreaming about, you never know. (:
