The Crown of Beauty

So, early this week the founder from the Crown of Beauty magazine emailed me asking if I would be interested in spreading the word of their Christian magazine and their November issue! Naturally, I was really curious so I checked out the magazine and read the newest issue on Beauty. Beauty is such a sensitive subject in the world of tabloids, but I wanted to share with you all a unique Christian outlook on beauty and how the media skews what we see to fit the mold they are trying to form women into.
Like most people… I fall victim to criticizing my beauty all the time. I will take every aspect of my appearance and list ways that I need to improve it. But, why do I constantly put myself down for not fitting a certain mold of beauty? Why is it that when I look in the mirror I see a less desirable individual looking back? Well, if you have the same questions or have friends who personally struggle with accepting their outward or inner beauty, then I would definitely recommend you take a look at The Beauty Issue!
I posted below a little overview of the magazine and some resources for all of you so that you can work on countering society's mold for beauty and focus more on how you are inherently beautiful in God's image, which honestly in my opinion is the most important image! Anyways, I'll let Crown of Beauty take it away now...

“Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past fifteen years of your life, or dwell on an Amish farm out in the hilly countryside, you’ve probably noticed the way in which the media has a special gift for making girls feel ugly and inadequate. We’ve all suffered through those nauseating T.V. advertisements in which an underwear model poses, pursing her pouty lips, as her hair blows wildly from a fan. After watching such ads I roll my eyes and try not to laugh. I mean, how lame do the marketers think that I am?! (It’s like those drug advertisements that list the deadly side effects, such as hearing loss or your nose falling off, while they show happy old couples flying kites, and walking puppy dogs.)
I’m sure you’ve picked up on the trend in many teen magazines. The words on the glossy cover shout, “Boost Your Self-Confidence! Six Tips To Loving Yourself!” Yet by the time you flip to page ten, you’ve already seen a dozen perfect faces and bodies posing for makeup advertisements, which drained away all confidence you were hoping to get from their pep-talk article.
Every girl has noticed what’s going on. We’re not immune to it. But have we ever recognized what’s going on around us as a targeted attack on our beauty as females?
The sickening plot has been dreamt up, and skillfully executed by the enemy of our souls, Satan. He has always hated girls. Ever since the Garden of Eden, he has been attacking Eve and his daughters with lies that spew like fire out of his dragon mouth.
The purpose of this disgusting scheme is to convince God’s chosen daughters that they are worthless. The familiar scenery of the hour we live in, the set on this stage, and the cast of characters in this story remind me of what unfolded in Esther’s day. Esther’s story is a dramatic tale that all of us love. An ordinary, average, orphan girl was called to play a magnificent role in the Kingdom, and God used her to release her entire generation from destruction. Just like Esther you were called into the kingdom for such a time as this.
Girl, your adrenaline-pumping, high-action, story of greatness is unfolding. You living in the midst of this BEAUTY-saturated generation for a purpose, and that purpose is not to remain silent and be destroyed. There is no need for fear because we know how this story ends. The victory is not in jeopardy, it already belongs to Christ. He is calling you to walk with Him into this adventure.
Will you join your Christian sisters and discover what’s going on behind-the-scenes in the modeling industry, Hollywood, the media, and cosmetic companies? Many of these avenues have added insult to injury , as thousands of young girls just don’t feel like they measure up. Discover the unique role that we have as young women in combating this attack on our generation! You have been given a powerful influence and are called to play a meaningful role. Be both challenged and encouraged in this powerful new recourse for Christian girls, an online magazine, Crown of Beauty Magazine.
We just released our first FULL downloadable issue in November! This issue includes articles and interviews with some wonderful young women! Including, Jenny Simmons of Addison Road, Sarah Ross from Everlife, Rachel Lee Carter author of Modeling Christ, and Kylie Busitti, a former Victoria’s Secret Model, who walked away from her glamorous career to obey God’s call and be an example for girls everywhere! Recommended for teen girls ages 13+.
If you decide you’d like to order The Beauty Issue, it costs $4.99. Now, this is the first time we’ve charged anything to our readers, but this issue took a lot of hard work & it’s totally jam-packed! But if you don’t want to purchase anything…no worries! We have lots of free content on our site! Check it out! www.crownofbeautymagazine.com

You all are beautiful inside and out and God has made you in his image and likeness. I will try to remember this next time I look at myself in the mirror and doubt my beauty! I hope you all have a wonderful day and that you check out Crown of Beauty magazine!
