Barbara L. Roose
Most women know that God loves them, but might he love them more if they finally lost that last ten pounds, or got their hair to lay right, or finally found a pair of jeans that looked good and let them breathe? Well, maybe God doesn’t care about jeans, but women do, and all the talk about inner beauty hasn’t kept all of us from staring into a mirror and taking an inventory that never quite measures up. Enough Already will:
—Elevate the soul-freeing, spiritual truth that God is the Creator of beauty and that women are called to appreciate and care for themselves as his own.
—Enable women to accept God-given beauty so that when they look in the mirror they see his handiwork, not their flaws.
—Equip women to win the ugly struggle with beauty once and for all.

Fantastic book on beauty! Great resource for women!
I love that the author covers a variety of topics and everything is relevant and relatable.
This book really helps women to understand their own struggles with body image and self image. It encourages them to see themselves as God sees them.
Each chapter begins with a theme verse and ends with Group Discussion Questions as well as Personal Journal Questions. I especially loved the little tidbits called “Beauty Marks”…very powerful!
I highly recommend this book to women of all ages.
