Hi Project Inspired girls!
I’m so excited to announce our November Project Inspired Book Club read–God Loves Ugly: & love makes beautiful by Christa Black.
Some of you girls may have heard of Christa. She is a popular blogger, speaker and singer/songwriter who has written songs for the likes of Jordin Sparks and Michael W. Smith. And she has even toured with the Jonas Brothers and Jennifer Knapp!
But even with all her professional success, Christa couldn’t love her own face and body, which led her to overachievement, addiction and an eating disorder that eventually landed her in rehab. In God Loves Ugly, Christa talks about how when she discovered God’s unconditional love for her, she was finally able to accept herself and her physical imperfections and moral failings.
Girls, this is a must-read. If we don’t love ourselves and realize that God loves us too–no matter what–terrible things can happen. Each and every one of you is beautiful and loved by God!
And I have some great news: The God Loves Ugly team is sending five lucky Project Inspired readers copies of the book and Christa Black’s CD!
