    I never used to smile this big because I thought it was too babyish! My mom didn’t let me buy or wear makeup casually until my senior year of high school, and I was ashamed because I felt like I looked younger than I really was. I also had acne early, (around fifth grade) and was embarassed to let my acne scars and everything else show. I had read the Bible as a teen but only now do I truly understand what it means that ” God has made everything beautiful in its time” (Ecclesiastes 3:11) Now because I’m a second-year art school student I have barely any time to spend on my looks, and that’s changed my perspective of beauty. When I am tired I wear a little concealer and blush but that’s it. Otherwise, I try to go as bare as I can. My face has matured and since people see can my whole body and face it’s silly for me to worry that I look ‘like a little girl’ when I know with poise and grace I carry myself like a young woman. I still enjoy makeup, especially lipstick, but I don’t need to depend on it,. I save it for church or parties. My suggestion to other girls struggling would be to cultivate a gentle and sweet spirit (Like St. Paul reminds women to!) and to remember that if you are still growing your body was created to take its time to work and develop properly. <3

    I know I might be one of the older PI members, but I believe in what this group does to cultivate inner beauty! I’m praying for you Nicole and other girls.

    1. I’m glad you smile that big! God gave you a beautiful smile that you need to show off!
      I know how bad it feels to look younger than you really are and I know that not being alllowed to wear makeup makes it even worse! I’m living in that right now, but reading your little story made me realize that God made me beautiful and I need to embrace that! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
