Reflecting the Beauty of God
Our culture is “beauty” obsessed. But what is beauty, really? And how do we obtain it? And keep it? What if real beauty is all about reflecting God? Susie attempts to answer these questions with humor. She hopes to encourage women to see the beauty that God has given to them.

We hear messages all day long about who we should be, what we should be doing, how we should look. But what does the Good Shepherd tell us?
