The Insatiable Quest for Beauty: Book Review

Our society is obsessed with "beauty". It's easy to get caught up in all the media and advertisements that seem to say that if you don't have star-worthy features, you just need more products, and if you don't have the body of a model, you need to starve yourself. Tiffany Dawn shares her struggles with body image, eating disorders, and true beauty in her book The Insatiable Quest for Beauty.

When I sat down to read the book Tiffany sent me, I was immediately hooked. She gives big-sister advice and shares her struggles in a genuine, honest, and raw way that's relatable to many girls. A tough breakup left her feeling insecure and she strove to do whatever it took to be "beautiful". In The Insatiable Quest for Beauty, she reflects on how this took her down a path of hurt and despair until she discovered her true beauty in the eyes of her Creator.

One of my favorite things about this book is creativity Tiffany had with it. Each chapter is set up like a coffee date -- it's quick, sweet, and leaves you wanting more. The end of each chapter gives you a challenge that helps you move in the right direction with your quest for beauty. You can then go to the book's website where you'll find more helpful notes that go with each chapter. Her CD, This is Who I Am, also depicts her thoughts on beauty, life, and the Lord and makes for great listening when you don't have time to sit down and read. (Plus, her voice sounds like an angel. Just saying.)

If you struggle with how you look, or just want a good heartfelt read, I recommend checking out Tiffany's book. It's fast-paced, poignant, and her struggle is one every girl can understand. Click here to go to her website for more on her story.
