Summary

Do you feel like you're never good enough? Like you should be living a more Instagram-worthy life? Are you exhausted by the impossible quest for physical beauty but still yearn for the validation of being chosen, valued, and deemed beautiful?

Drawing on her experience on America's Next Top Model and her work as a fashion model, Leah Darrow exposes the lies we are told about our worth being tied to our appearance and instead invites us to look again at the real meaning of beauty. She shows how we can reclaim true and lasting beauty - the kind that doesn't depend on self-doubt, exploitation, or comparison - when we reflect God's glory and embrace our value as he made us to be: strong, brave, and free. Only when we learn to see ourselves as God does can we leave behind our culture's definitions and demands and find joy in The Other Side of Beauty.

A must read!

As the world continues to struggle with purpose this book is a beautiful reminder of our purpose and how to fulfill it.

A must read for all young men and women and their parents. As well as all of those who believe in the human race and God‘s purpose for our existence.

My heart needed this book!

I would recommend this book to all women. Leah does an amazing job at speaking to the desires of all women. Her real life examples make beauty jump off the page and become reality. I especially enjoyed the appendices with her guidelines to modest dress and her 30 day closet challenge.

Every woman should listen to this book!

Leah understands and compassionately but directly addresses so many of the challenges that women struggle with. We all seek goodness, truth and beauty, and Leah shows us a path to true beauty. This book is deeply rooted in her Catholic faith, but even those who are not Catholic, Christian or who don't believe in God will connect to and learn from this wonderful work. Must buy!

Good book with one major problem!

I greatly enjoyed this book and overall found it to be empowering. My one problem with this book is on the discussion on modesty. I personally have a modest wardrobe that’s what i feel comfortable in. However, I do not agree with Ms. Darrow that modesty equates a good Christian. More importantly, I wish that she would have taken the time to enforce that we should not judge people based on their wardrobe nor assume that they are not good Catholics because a woman’s wardrobe is not consider modest. Fashion for some people is a form of expression! But other than that I feel the book is wonderful and I can’t wait to share about it.

Great story and guide to true beauty.

A wonderful book for teenage girls and women. It points out a happier and more joyful way of living than the media shows us and tells us.

A Whole New Way To Perceive Beauty

I picked up this audiobook because of her former life as America's Next Top Model, this made me curious, what she had to say about fashion industry.

And thanks to Leah for sharing her insight , this audiobook have so much to offer, and simply shifting the way I see or believe what beauty is, and above all now I have differrent view when I open a fashion magazine.
