Today’s young Christian women have grown up in the most image-obsessed generation in history, a generation that worships some of the most twisted ideals of beauty the world has ever seen. But whether we love them or hate them… they tend to shape our own perceptions of what beauty is. Some of us struggle to fit into the mold – others of us are repulsed by it, concluding that physical beauty itself is immodest, worldly, and unspiritual, and reject the realm of beautification completely. But when all we’ve ever seen is the counterfeit the world offers, we can sometimes forget that the world did not create beauty – God did. And though we all know the world has a lot to say about image, we sometimes don’t realize how much God does too.

Old vs new

It’s time to reclaim beauty. When faced with an industry built on Photoshop airbrushing, plastic surgery, starvation diets, grotesque catwalk styles, and billions of squandered dollars, our response can no longer be, “Beauty is not for us.” It’s time for our response to be, “Get your flag out of our ground.” From Genesis to Revelation, God paints a powerful picture of the inner and outer beauty of a woman, and it’s time to show the world what it really looks like – one soul, one body, one face, one closet at a time.

Join the authors of So Much More and It’s (Not That) Complicated and producers of “Return of the Daughters” for an intensely practical, biblical, image-rich study course on the meaning and cultivation of beauty from the inside out. Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin guide you through topics as practical as skincare, fitness, posture, voice, modesty solutions, home-made beauty products, color analysis, and how to clothe yourself better for less… to subjects as penetrating as personal identity, insecurity, comparisons, worldliness, vanity, idolatry, our attitude toward others, and the state of our hearts before the Lord.

The Reclaiming Beauty Study Course also serves as a crash course in art, design, worldview, and cultural warfare, equipping women to be deliberate, visionary, and excellent in everything they do, and helping them to find beauty’s proper place alongside every other pursuit of the Christian woman’s life.

A girl’s appearance is often the root of her biggest insecurities, fears, longings, and identity conflicts. In this study course, Anna Sofia and Elizabeth use the subject to encourage girls to deepen their relationship with the God Who fearfully and wonderfully made them, challenging them on where they find their identity and place their trust, and gently helping them to see themselves through the Lord’s eyes.

The Reclaiming Beauty Project Study Course includes nine hours of video (audio with image-packed power-point), and a dense 45-page printable study guide (view sample PDF here), ideal for women’s study groups. Recommended for ages 14 and up.

  • Session One: What God Says About Beauty and Beautification: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Participant comments

Finally, the help I need...thank you! — C
The webinar helped me to truly “reclaim” beauty. I felt inspired with every session! — J
There were so many times where we would say, “Wow! I’ve never thought of it that way before.” Our lives are changed (or should I say, changing) for the better – practically, physically, and most importantly, spiritually. — V
I loved how you brought everything back to Christ and the truth of His Word. — B
It is amazing how one topic can do so much to change a person’s life. … Before listening to this seminar, I would have such terrible anxiety about what I was going to wear and who I was, that it was affecting my health. I have been battling with Anorexia for 7 years and I can’t thank God enough for your obedience to Him and sharing the discoveries you have made in His word. …I no longer feel like I have no purpose, the suicidal grip Satan had on me has ceased, and my relationship with my family is beginning to blossom with healing. — S
Thank you so much for taking the time to do this :) It is so refreshing to hear a well-balanced view on this subject- a view that is based upon the Word of God and a love for the Lord Jesus. — A
…listening to you both was very helpful, encouraging, exciting, fun, freeing, enlightening, insightful, thought-provoking, action-provoking… It produced growth in all of us and it was a huge blessing! — V
After each session, we were amazed by the number of questions we hadn’t considered and the answers so graciously and persuasively presented from Scripture. …Your presentation was carefully researched, fiercely loyal to Scripture and yet gently and winsomely communicated, practical to everyday use and eminently vital for the cultural transformation of the world. — K, E, and A
