The essence of the book Fierce Beauty is fully captured in the secondary title: “Choosing to Stand for What Matters Most”. Using personal stories of adventure, loss, and love, Kim Meeder shares what she has learned about God and how those realizations should shape our lives. If women wants to be truly beautiful they need to stop buying into what society says is beautiful and start acting on what God desires. When women choose to live for God instead of themselves, true beauty shines.
Confession time: I’m a gamer. I like playing games where you choose a class for your character. Most often I choose to make my character a warrior because they’re in the middle of the action. Not only are they often doing the majority of the melee fighting, they’re also defending the other members of their party. So when I read that instead of being princesses, we need to be warriors, it totally made sense. More often than not you hear the “kingdom personality” of a princess being attributed to Christian women because God’s our King and we’re His daughters. But really, the idea of being a warrior for the kingdom makes a lot more sense. I could write a whole blog post on this idea but I’ll refrain, for now, LOL!
Kim Meeder does a wonderful job telling the reader her experiences and how they affected her. She also does a great job relating these experiences to our spiritual lives. Quite honestly, this is a must-read for women who want to be who God made them to be. Great for small-groups or just individual study, Fierce Beauty is perfect for learning who we need to be for God.
