By exposing the lies and motives of the media, Shelly motivates women to believe in themselves and appreciate their unique, God-created beauty. In Chapter Eleven, Alleviate Stinkin' Thinkin', Shelly teaches her readers to change their thoughts and attitudes towards themselves and change their thinking to reflect God's thoughts about beauty.
Encouraging scriptures referencing beauty are sprinkled throughout the book along with tips on healthy hair, how to live luxuriously for less, expert eyebrow techniques, and steps to a flawless face. Shelly also details for us the differences in foundations, the history of lipstick, tips on looking younger and knowing your body shape. One of my favorite chapters was The Pampered Pantry which offers beauty treatments with natural ingredients. Most interesting was the "pick me up" facial using coffee grounds, which I promptly tried myself!
For those who are looking to go "green", there is plenty of information on organic and all natural foods, supplements and makeup in this book as well. Shelly also tells us the ingredients in cosmetics that are making us sick, and gives us a Top Ten list of things to stay away from.
Included in this book are several quotes and interviews by Nicole C. Mullen, Kim Alexis, Lisa Bevere, Tammy Trent, Anita Renfroe and more.
In Chapter Eight, Clothing Essentials for Potential, readers are encouraged to do their homework and know their body type in order to choose clothes that flatter their shape. According to the author, you don't have to lose your style; you just have to make it work for you. In this chapter readers will also find tips on knowing which colors work for them and how to shop for clothes that fit properly.
Shelly addresses the hot topic of modesty and quotes Danielle Kimmey, former member of Out of Eden who says "our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost, and they need to be protected...........when the sexy comes into your wardrobe, you've gone too far.........we have a responsibility to ourselves." Shelly includes some guidelines which readers can use to see if various articles of clothing pass the modesty "test".
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in fashion and health, and for those who want biblical balance as well as natural beauty.
And you'll love Shelly's humorous conversational style. She presents valuable information in an easy to read and creatively fun format. Beauty by God includes dozens of interviews with top experts in both the secular and Christian beauty industry. It's obvious that Shelly has put an incredible amount of research into this book. Before being introduced to Shelly's Devil's Top 10 ingredient list, I never realized that I had been putting dangerous ingredients commonly found in many cosmetics on my face everyday. You'll find great secrets for wardrobe and closet organization. Read her creative Pampered Chef and Passion party ideas. BBG is loaded with secrets to make beauty fun, affordable and easier.
And Shelly really gets it that beauty is more than just external looks. I like what she says, "joy is the best makeup of all". She weaves in character and spiritual issues without being preachy, threatening, or offensive. I wouldn't hesitate to give this book to some of my girlfriends who aren't Spiritual like I am. And she even included a bonus chapter so we can make our man "look grand" too. Get one for yourself and several copies for your best friends. Shelly knows about beauty and making others look beautiful and she's not affiliated with any beauty companies and offers a true non-biased opinion. A truly enjoyable read to look and feel better inside and out. And this book has big name endorsements.
