The thing that is most beautiful about a woman is her confidence, but her confidence is deeply rooted in her beauty and is quickly deflated by comparison.
To solve this dilemma, today’s society strives for flawless beauty; even the godly wrestle with feelings of determination or despair over their image, but only the Supreme Stylist can give you a makeover that lasts a lifetime! He did it for many women in the Bible such as Eve, Mary and the woman at the well and their examples will inspire you to let God change you as well.
Image- and life-coach Catrina Welch shares fresh insights regarding image issues that women face and the various coping mechanisms that they use. She explains the six general styles of feminine beauty and how each of them deals with confidence conflicts according to their clothing personality. Tamar and Abigail were both women in abusive relationships but they each handled their situations differently. Catrina shares why she feels one of them must have had the image identity (Img.ID) of a glamorous Romantic and the other was a sporty Natural. Understanding others and yourself is the key to confidence.
Confident Beauty includes simple surveys that will guide you in assessing which Img.ID you are and general guidelines will teach you how to accentuate your individual style. These are the keys to empowering you to take care of yourself in order to forget about yourself and focus on others.
Most importantly, this powerful and applicable unfolding of God’s Word will reveal your Creator’s heart toward your emotional, spiritual and physical beauty. This Truth is the key that will set you free to be a woman of Confident Beauty that doesn’t wear off like makeup does!

Deep insightful and well written. A very practical explanation of a women's life long battle with image. As well as sound advice on how take control of this battle.
This book opened my eyes to the ways I struggle with confidence. It helped me understand why beauty is so important to me and I don't feel ashamed of that anymore. But I will not strive for beauty anymore either. I now understand which style I am and how to dress accordingly and I will do my best to take care of myself ('cuz now I know how!) and think about others.
Wow! This book helped me so much! I am so much like "Barbie." Now I understand the power if beauty and what God designed it for... Even my beauty! It's so cool that I now know my Img.ID. I didn't even know there were different types of beauty! I am going to share this with all my friends. More girls should know this.
Part one is a spiritual outlook on our inner and outer beauty.. It prepares you to look at your relationships, with God and with others,including your relationship with yourself. Part two and three teach you about your image identity and how to use what God has given you and improve your choices of style (clothes choice, makeup choices, hairstyles, etc). While reading I learned more insight to myself and my choices. I recommend this book and will be purchasing more for friends.
