Fierce Beauty {Book Review}

Fierce Beauty
by Kim Meeder

“You were not created to be a princess of entitlement, but a warrior, fighting to bring love and hope to the world.”


True beauty is not about how you look…but how you live.

Women are constantly bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important than who we are. It’s time for a clarion call back to the truth.
Journey with gifted storyteller Kim Meeder as she encourages women to see that true value is defined by our Creator and that our worth has a purpose of eternal proportions.
Real beauty isn’t a look, it’s an action. It can be found by making one crucial, life-defining choice—to lay down personal ambitions and selfish desires, pick up your sword of encouragement, and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. As you do, fierce beauty is revealed—along with lasting value, fulfillment, and joy.   
In Fierce Beauty, Kim shares inspiring true stories from her own life of adventure, love, and loss—including her parents’ shocking death when she was nine years old and her struggles with self acceptance, knowing God, and standing for Him. Through it all, you’ll discover life lessons about trust, transformation, surrender, forgiveness, and genuine purpose.
Ultimately, life comes down to one question: Will you serve yourself or your King?
I really enjoyed the format of this book: personal accounts of different moments in the author's life followed by practical application of biblical truth.  Fierce Beauty is an easy, thought-provoking read for the new Christian as well as the biblical scholar.   I love seeing how God clearly works in the lives of His people and this book was a great demonstration of just that.  Using real-life accounts of God's work in her life through adventure, tragedy, personal friends, and just the everyday tasks of life Kim Meeder has put together a wonderful compilation to inspire the reader to live for God and to display His glory to a fallen creation.
