It was the name her peers bestowed and she adopted internally as her true identity.

At eight years old Sally Klein O'Connor was bitten by a dog on her face-a brutal event that took 100 stitches to close. The bite left a semicircular scar from the corner of her right eye to the edge of her mouth. But it was not the external mark that caused the most damage. It was that name-Scarface-echoing cries through the years that laid a strong foundation for self-loathing and destructive behavior for decades to come. As time passed, Sally believed the lie she would never be truly accepted.

But the One who made her in His image spoke truth into her heart. As Sally heard and believed, a transformation began. In this journey from self-hatred to self-acceptance we see how God continues to restore Sally from "Scarface" to "Beauty."

Beauty in the Beast is a book for those who look into mirrors and see only what they are not; for those who still hear and believe voices from their past they will never be good enough, beautiful enough, smart enough, fast enough... they will always fall short of the mark.

Beauty in the Beast will open your eyes to the power of God's love to unearth the true beauty He created each one of us to express and experience.
