In a culture that bombards women with "thinspiration" messages and pressure to "do it all" while wearing the mask of perfection, women are left feeling alone and overwhelmed. How can they stop comparing themselves to others? How can they live out who they really are?Lee Wolfe Blum offers stories from everyday women who have answered these questions with their lives--and found true beauty in the process. In Brave Is the New Beautiful, Blum weaves reflections from her own journey with inspirational stories from everyday women who chose to take off their masks and live authentically. Through call-to-action questions and ideas, she encourages readers to be brave enough to be who they really are and the beloved that God knows they are.

Review quote

In today's 'be everything to everybody' society, women find the idea of being brave and beautiful a foreign thought when they are struggling just to survive. Blum shares her stories, as well as those of many women whom she admires, to encourage readers to not compete but to become who God wants them to be.

Blum is a mental health practitioner who works with patients facing eating disorders and addictions. Her passion of hope and freedom is shown throughout this book as she reminds readers that they aren't necessarily here on earth to be happy but to honor God and become more Christlike.

The heartwarming stories of strength and bravery are excellent for a personal study as well as for a group study. Additional ideas are found in the reflection questions and thoughts at the end of each chapter and the thorough notes section at the end of the book.
