A staggering number of women today are lonely and depressed, have a poor body image, eating disorders, or low self-esteem. I too, am one of these statistics and find myself feeling insecure and comparing the real me to some imagined version of how I am supposed to look and feel. The pressure to be perfect and accomplished and slim fit—all with a smile—is exhausting and not the way it is supposed to be. It robs us of the very thing we have possessed all along- true and lasting beauty and value and purpose, regardless of what we see in the mirror. What if every woman and girl looked in the mirror and felt confident in who she was made to be? What if she didn’t feel she had to prove herself or her value? What if she walked into a room and felt beautiful and didn’t feel like she had to strive to be more? What if she really believed what God said about her?
UNITED + TRU began as a movement to reach all women and girls—from preteens and teens to married and divorced, singles and moms—we believe it’s time to redefine beauty. We want to help women discover the way we are supposed to see ourselves and talk together about the issues and pressures we face. The heart of this mission is to showcase Godʼs beauty in every woman, united as one body—every shape, size, age and culture—for one powerful night. The Bible says God makes ALL things work together for our good. (Romans 8:28) What if He took all the insecurities, pain, blemishes and shame and used them to transform us into His beauty and light? That is in fact what He does- He’s a God of ultimate makeovers, shaping us from the inside out—no filters needed.
