What does being “beautiful” mean to you?
Honestly ladies, I want you to really sit with that question and ponder it.
Here at AMaVo, it is our goal to help you see the beauty that resides right inside of you. You were not made by accident and the craftsmanship in creating you was perfect. I am often led to Psalm 139: 13-14 when I think of who we are as daughters of the King.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139: 13-14 (NIV)
Do you believe those words?
Are they imprinted on your heart?
If we each would hold onto those words and sit in them....we may begin to believe them. Imagine the good we could do in this world and for those around us if we truly believed those words.
We hear how you speak to yourself in the mirror.
We have watched and listened for 11 years now.
And we so badly want you to know how beautiful you are- from the inside out! How loved you are. How perfect you are already! You don’t have to be or do more. You just have to let the Creator come into your heart and speak to your soul.
Easier said then done, huh? We get that.
We struggle daily along with you.
But we are committed to knowing and doing better. And it is our mission to help you along the way. We are eager to talk more about what it means to be beautiful and how we can start to believe that truth.
To start, I want to encourage you to literally write out Psalm 139. Put it on a sticky note and hang it on your bathroom mirror. Or hang it in your car. Find a beautiful print on Etsy of that verse and order it, frame it, and hang it where you can see it daily.
Speak those words out loud for a month.
You will start to believe them. And thus will begin the transforming of your mind (Romans 12:2) and heart.
This is just the beginning to a life long journey but we invite you to join us in it.
Let's start the conversation and change our perspectives.
You see, as women, we have to not only believe we are beautiful and loved by our Creator but it is also our task to point our daughters (and relatives and friends) to that truth as well. It starts with us.
I have personally been pouring this truth into my daughter since she was born and I’m seeing some of the fruit of that.
I'll share with you a funny story about that soon - stay tuned.
In Him- Andrea
