Fierce Beauty Review

I just finished reading the book Fierce Beauty by Kim Meeder.  When I chose this book I was looking for inspiration, maybe even a little toughness training.  Once I received the book I had a little trouble getting into it.  The beginning seemed to be full of extra words, more than were really necessary.  Kind of like gilding a rose that's already beautiful.  It just didn't need it.  But I kept reading.  I wanted to know more about Kim and who the heck knows with all my family was dealing with maybe it was just overload for my brain. 

Fierce Beauty has a lot to offer.  Kim has been through so many trial and tribulations of her own, she can share these  experiences with others and we can all learn something from them. 

Kim's inspiring true stories come from her own life of adventure, love and loss - including her parents' shocking death when she was nine years old and her struggles with self acceptance, knowing God and standing for him.

Kim discusses many issues that face young women today.  From the lies the media tell us, such as, what is beautiful and what's not, to encouraging us to run the race and never give up.  She reminds us to answer the call of our Heavenly Father and give whatever is asked.  There are passage of sadness throughout this book but there is also words to inspire you.

"You were not created to be a princess of entitlement but a warrior, fighting to bring love and hope to the world." ~ Kim Meeder

Thanks to Waterbrook Multnomah's Blogging For Books for giving me the opportunity to review this book.  I received this book free  to assist in my review.
