Discovering Authentic Beauty Around the World
In a world that equates beauty with perfection, and self-worth with beauty, women spend much of their time striving to meet unreachable standards, without the perspective to acknowledge their own beauty. Author, ministry leader, and filmmaker/photographer, Rebecca Friedlander, challenges this narrow definition of beauty in her new book, Finding Beautiful: Discovering Authentic Beauty around the World.
Travel to Paris, Hawaii, the Middle East, Ireland, and other locations across the globe through the stories of twelve women from a wide range of backgrounds, all of whom share their individual search for beauty within, and their ultimate transformations in Christ. By telling these stories, Friedlander offers a picture of beauty birthed in the distinct character of each individual woman.

Finding Beautiful: Discovering Authentic Beauty Around the World
What is beautiful? We spend our money on beauty products, weight-loss programs, and age-defying medical interventions to attain beauty. We set impossible standards and feel bad about ourselves when we don't reach them. Is beauty truly that elusive? Or could it be that our idea of what's beautiful is simply too narrow?
Through engaging personal stories and dramatic before-and-after photography, filmmaker Rebecca Friedlander uncovers the true beauty of twelve women from around the world, empowering us to shatter the lies of rejection, doubt, and low self-esteem. Utilizing compelling biblical truth and questions for personal reflection, Friedlander helps us identify our own personal battlegrounds, celebrate our uniqueness, and embrace God's definition of beautiful.
