You Are Beautiful: A Model Makeover from Insecure to Confident in Christ by Ashley Reitz encourages young women to feel confident in their God-given beauty. Reitz is a “curve model,” and I enjoyed reading about her experiences in the modeling world. Reitz has such a positive, healthy approach towards life, and she sounds like a great role model for girls. The media often sends messages about body image that are damaging to girls, which makes books like You Are Beautiful much needed in society. Women need to remember that God created them beautifully, and Reitz’ book cements that message. One of my favorite chapters in the book was “Curve,” which talked about reacting to the curveballs in life and being resilient. I also really liked the chapter “Beautiful,” which talked about things that make someone beautiful, such as their wisdom and compassion. The “Beauty Box” reflection questions at the end of each chapter were a great addition to the book. The book shows what true beauty is, and Reitz encourages women to be confident and secure in their identity in Christ. *I received this book for review*

You Are Beautiful: A Model Makeover from Insecure to Confident in Christ by Ashley Reitz was an amazing reading experience. Ms. Reitz takes us through a lifetime of struggling with insecurity. She shares how she had an unhealthy self-image and battled with various eating disorders and how she learned to navigate through an industry that is most culpable in promoting unrealistic beauty standards. Her rousing story of transformation through faith in Jesus’ unconditional love caused her to rediscover the invaluable treasures hidden within her. Those truths empowered her to use her public platform to help others avoid pitfalls and unhealthy life choices that could possibly result in irreparable harm spiritually, mentally and physically. This book is well written with very brief chapters and a concise summary at the end of each chapter smartly entitled, “Beauty Box”. These summaries highlight major points in each chapter and include several follow-up questions to prompt the reader to reflect and take some action steps. I highly recommend this book for all young women and believe it would be an excellent teaching resource for small church groups seeking to mentor and groom the next generation of women, as well as required reading for future beauty pageant contestants. Ms. Ashley Reitz, thank you for sharing your story and inspiring others to trusting Jesus Christ too. I received this book free from the publisher through their book review bloggers program and I was not required to write a positive review.
