    “Love Your Flawz”

    Everyone is flawed. Yet the media pushes airbrushed bodies in magazines and the entertainment industry. We are constantly bombarded with the pressure to look “perfect.”

    The reality of life is that one day you will grow older and have wrinkles, but you will remain you. So why not embrace it? We all have something about us we can love instead of looking at it negatively.

    Caitlin Crosby presents this idea in her song “Love Your Flawz.” Watch the inspiring video of people showing off their natural beauty:

    Not only is “Love Your Flawz” a song, it’s also a movement. Crosby even has a website where you can post pictures, stories and words of encouragement, and watch videos, read inspiring quotes and learn about helpful ways to embrace your “flawz.” This site is so helpful for people who are dealing with insecurities.

    It’s great that Crosby realizes we are all uniquely made and that no matter what flaws we have, GOD STILL LOVES US! He even knows how many hairs are on your head! He created you, cherishes you and watches over you! God’s love is eternal and his love for you OUTNUMBERS the grains of sand on the seashore!

    Indeed, the very hairs on your head are all numbered (Luke 12:7).

    Crosby is attracting all types of people to her website, including celebrities such as Jennifer Love Hewitt. The idea is to embrace your flaws because life is too short to be insecure or to compare yourself to others!

    PI girls, if you or someone you know is struggling with insecurities, remember that God doesn’t think you have any flaws. You are wonderfully made! As humans, of course we find the flaws in ourselves, but the truth is, we all are beautiful beings because God handmade us and knew us before we were even born!

    For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb, I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-14).

    What is something that maybe the world would say is a flaw, but that you’ve chosen to embrace about yourself? Ready, set, go–comment below!!

    1. My clothes- the world would say they are the wrong brand or style or whatever. But I love My clothes, and I always tr to look nice,and I enjoy having my own style and not being the same as everyone else. i have nothing against the “cool” clothes, and some of them are really cute, but I love just being me! 🙂

    2. God gave me beautiful greenish-blue eyes and brownish-red hair. He gave me a gift for the arts as well(Drama, music, and writing)
      When I feel I’m not good enough I try to remember the things I like about myself. 😉

    3. Dear God,
      Thank You Jesus for makeing me with flawz! I love myself for who I am! You alone are perfect, and we are made in Your image. So we all have some perfection in us, but we dont realize that until we accept who we really are! Thank you for my flawz! I LOVE them!!!!
      Your Unperfect Daughter….

    4. My chubby cheeks. To be honest, sometimes I still see them as a flaw. My body is really thin and tiny, but my cheeks are huge! But every now and then I have to remind myself that it’s a part of me, and they’re kinda cute! 🙂

    5. My eyes are very slanted and have an asian look. But I started to realize that people actually liked that! I’ve had some of the male gender tell me that my best trait is my eyes. Or that they are beautiful. And especially because they’re also blue eyes. So now it’s a trait that I boast forward even though people ask if I’m asian or some people may pick on it.

    6. The world would say I am very shy, have pimples, glasses, and the wrong clothes. I’m sure they would critisize me for being a Christian as well. I also have pretty thin hair, because I have a bad habit, and eyebrows a bit on the bushy side. I love the flaws God gave me. It is really hard for me to embrace them, but I am learning slowly… 😀

    7. I’m different. I’m not “cool.” I’m a homeschooling, self-proclaimed weirdo. I don’t wear tons of makeup, and no cover up or foundation. I’m not flawsless, but I’m not flawed either. I AM perfect, especially in the eyes of my Father, God, who created me and loves me, FLAWZ and all!

    8. I’ve always been concious about my side profile. I have a small chin and a little bump on my nose. Sadly I think the most grief I’ve gotten about it is from my brother on occasion. I also get called a nerd a lot because I’m quiet, I get good grades, And I happen to hang out with kids who aren’t considered “cool”. It’s really sad that we live in a society where people really do judge a book by its cover. In the end, I know God will let me use this experience in a positive way.

    9. This is a little off-topic, but I would like to see PI do a little research on Girl Scouts. Lately they’ve been in the news for letting cross-dressed BOYS into the group, and they’ve supported abortion for years. While I was never in it, I know little girls at my Church who are, and I think there’s a lot going on Christian girls should avoid.

    10. My flat chest, it’s not like I can do anything about it anyway.
      My wavy hair that won’t straighten, it looks adorable down.
      My oldly shaped feet that fit in pointe shoes perfectly.
      My lopsided smile, that I wear with pride 😀

    11. I had a list of thingz about myself that I hated, but now? I’ll try to do better and embrace them 🙂 This video is amazing and hopefully we can get the message across to the rest of the world. 🙂

    12. “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” i have low self esteem so my youth group leader showed me it. It is my favorite Psalm. One day @ school i felt bad and wrote it over & over. I felt MUCH better.

    13. “I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” I have low self esteem so my youth group leader showed me it. One day at school i felt down so i wrote it over and over. I felt much better. The Bible has powerful words!

    14. i am beautiful. no makeup, moles on my face, never dyed my hair, not exactly perfect weight. i have no insecurities about my appearence. that was the most amazing, inspiring video ever. I am going to have every one of my friends watch it. the one with a smile that people say is ‘too big’, the one with a face covered in acne, the one who already knows that he’s perfect.

    15. i am going to get all my friends together, too, and we’re going to stand in the street holding signs like this, no makeup, no embellishments, nothing. we will stand there for all to see, dancing around, being happy, showing that we ARE proud of who we are, not what makup and stuff makes us look like.

    16. I’m 14. I’m extremely short ( 5ft 0 inches) and naturally skinny (only 82 lbs, believe it or not!) I hate my smile. I hate the fact that I’m flat chested , I’m not curvy, and I have no butt either. I honestly hate everything about my body! I’d give up a flat stomach anyday for having some feminine curves. It definitely doesn’t help that people comment on how short and skinny I am, and I feel so out of place at school. I really do want to be happy with my appearance, but I honestly don’t think there is anything to love about my body. I really need help!I’m so tired of crying about it, and I really wish I was never born.

      • God made you perfect just the way you are! Ok so I’ve never struggled with any of this, but at one time I hated my face. I thought I wasn’t pretty. My eyebrows were to big, my nose was also to big, and I didn’t have cute hair. Then God started speaking to me. He made me realize that I am beautiful! Even though I still sometimes don’t like something about my face I tell my self ” God made me beautiful just the way I am.” I will walk away from the mirror or focus on something I like about my face, like my long eye lashes. Most of all focus on How God sees you, not how the world sees you.

        I hope this helps! I’ll be praying for you!
