Beauty & the Bitch - Grace for the Worst in Me
An authentic, inspiring guide to help women see beyond their imperfections and failures—and rediscover the beauty within. As an experienced counselor, Jan Proett has logged countless hours listening to women describe themselves in the worst possible light. She’s also had plenty of practice at turning that light on herself. In this bracing and bravely personal book, Proett invites women to face the truth about themselves. And the truth is this: No matter how imperfect, fearful, shameful, and downright bitchy we have been, we can be restored. A life of fear and control can be met by peace and freedom. A heart full of rage can be overwhelmed by kindness. The demands of more can be trumped by gratitude and rest. And the best part is that every last ugly, nasty place in our hearts can be made beautiful. When we take an honest look at ourselves, beauty is what we’ll find underneath all the stuff we’ve piled on top. No matter who we think we are or what we’ve done, there’s a beauty inside us that defines us, a beauty we’ve forgotten. Rediscover that beauty and let it tell you who you really are.
