& Love Makes Beautiful
Whenever Christa Black looked in the mirror, she was waging a war with herself. Her hatred of her face and body drove her, as a young woman, into frantic over-achievement, addiction, and an eating disorder that landed her in rehab.
A preacher’s kid, she’d grown up imagining God as a “thou shalt not” tyrant. It was only when she miraculously discovered God’s unconditional love for her–physical imperfections, moral failings, and all–that she finally began to accept herself. As she tells her story, Christa shares the tools she uses to combat the self-rejection that harms so many people’s lives.
In this raw testimony, Christa Black takes women on a step-by-step journey of faith and positive belief to reveal that if God loves ugly, then we can too.
