Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A title like this leads a reader to think that this will be a book about body image. However, it's more about understanding beauty and acceptance in the context of God's unconditional love, a poignant message that many women will appreciate. "A good man can be wonderful," writes Thomas, a motivational speaker and mother of four. "But he can never be ENOUGH, and he can never make you WHOLE. You and I were made for even more. We were made for God." Although some readers may balk at the gender essentialism that drives this book (women are "wired" for relationships and beauty, etc.), Thomas spins compelling anecdotes from her own experiences and the lives of others. She builds a persuasive case for God as a pursuing lover who delights in each one of his daughters, even when they feel unlovable. She speaks honestly and with cutting humor about how Christian women appear to be all smiles, but "are dying on the inside." She also does an especially fine job of drawing on the prodigal son parable from the New Testament to demonstrate that although women sometimes feel like the prodigal and sometimes like the unappreciated elder son, God is waiting to receive them with open arms.

I cannot recommend it highly enough!!!!! As a girl passes from Womb into World, this book should be handed to her mother (who should *first* read it!), along with the statement that THIS BOOK IS FOUNDATIONAL FOR THE HEALTHY EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, AND SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT OF YOUR DAUGHTER... *especially* in the context of the mixed-up, messed-up, and up-side-down thinking of the world you are entering! Yes, it can be a beautiful world, but we must first understand God's definition of "beautiful" before we can accurately understand ~ and apply to our own hearts and lives ~ "BEAUTY."

Angela's writing style is DELIGHTFUL!!! Warm, conversational, and she has an endearing way of drawing us in to the place she is wanting to take us ~ which ultimately is into the arms of JESUS!!!!! He ALONE has the right, the power and the wisdom to declare us "beautiful" ~ in ways that GOD sees as being "the point"!

You will be changed forever after reading ~ and receiving ~ the sweet truths in this book, and will laugh, and cry, along the way!

This is an excellent book and easy to read, except that it touches so many of the questions in a woman's heart, that you have to stop and reflect and dry your eyes often. Angela Thomas has dared to voice out loud the longings and questions that most women hold in their heart, maybe for all of their lives. The desire to be cherished and thought beautiful underscores so much of what we do (and don't do) as women. Angela doesn't only ask the question, but provides a resounding answer that brings us face to face with the only one who can answer honestly. I think this is a "must read" for women of all ages and especially teenage girls. I wish I had read it thirty years ago. It could have made a big difference in my life a long time ago.

I was buying a Christmas present for my mom and looking through the selection of Christian books, and the title of this book caught my eye. Beauty is something that I have always struggled with. Self-esteem is just not something that I naturally have a lot of. This book changed my life. I can honestly say that it drew me closer to God and began to teach me how to find my worth in HIM rather than in the WORLD. I cannot urge you enough to buy this book. Especially if beauty is something you struggle with. You won't regret buying this book.

Every woman (and many husbands) needs to read this book and get copies to friends ASAP. My wife just finished it and I was compelled to write this after she shared it with me.
I am one who has both a wife and a mother who wrestle deeply with this issue. As a husband and even as a son I have often felt an overwhelming responsibility to attempt to fill a void that has seemed bottomless. My attempts with words and presents have often failed or most often seemed to last for just a brief moment. I have always wondered why?
Angela's life experience and teaching illustrates vividly all the things women do to attempt to answer a core issue.
My wife found comfort, common bond, peace and a real answer to a life long struggle.
We had the privilege of getting and advance copy of this book. Now She is giving Do You Think I'm Beautiful to friend after friend.
I am thrilled she has read and applied its message. I understand my wife more than ever from having read it. Men read this book and pass it on to your wife. Wives read this book and HIGHLIGHT it for your husbands!

This book should be read by every woman and girl! Some people might be shying away from the title cuz they think well, I'm alright in the looks department, OR, well of course I'm not, no need to read THAT book!! Or they might just think it has nothing to do with them.

And Angela tells you you might be right!!

Your question might be different and might not be about being beautiful. You see, there are other questions your soul might be asking.

For me it was "Do you love me?" Based on my childhood of foster homes and multiple adoptions, it became a very critical part of who I am. Being bounced around so much it felt like nobody loved me at all, even if they 'said' they did. And the churches I grew up in were based on the fearful, wrathful God. That when you prayed you'd better make sure to ask forgiveness for every sin, and even for anything you might not be able to remember, just to be safe. THEN, and only then, you could ask God for something as long as you didn't really expect an answer cuz after all, He's busy and who did I think I was that God would pay attention to me? And have a "Personal" relationship? Oh no, I'm definitely not good enough!!

This book has really opened my eyes and shown me a whole new way to a relationship with God!! It's not about how perfect I am (which God knows I'm NOT) It's about being loved, unconditionally, all the time, no matter what, no matter where, no matter what I look like, feel like, or have done, thought and thought about doing! He just loves me, for me, thinks I'm the greatest, no matter what.

In our lives, we search for that kind of unconditional love relationship. Some are 'lucky' enough to find it. Some experience it for a short while. Some never do at all.
