Synopsis: Despite what the world leads us to believe, true beauty has nothing to do with outward appearances. The more we focus on what we look like on the outside, the more insecure we become.
Fortunately, God doesn’t measure our worth by how we look. We have value simply because we are His children. The more we focus on getting our hearts right with the Lord and honoring Him, the more secure and confident we will become—and the more we will exude true beauty.
In 30 Days to a More Beautiful You, former Victoria’s Secret Runway Angel Kylie Bisutti gives a complete inner-beauty makeover with succinct devotional readings designed to transform your heart, body, mind, and soul and put you on the path to becoming a happier, healthier, more beautiful you.
The perfect gift for every young woman, this devotional will forever change the way you define the word beautiful.

My Review: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher.
This is a great devotional for young girls and older who will find through reading this that their focus shouldn't always be about external appearances. In a time where external appearances and peer acceptance is so crucial to a young person's self-image and self-worth, perhaps a devotional that shows that God loves us as we are, is necessary to help strengthen their inner strength.
It's short, with each day being only 2 pages. Each starts with a passage from the Bible, a short personal story from the author about the relevance to her own life as a runway model for Victoria's Secret, then wraps up with what is important in that day's devotion. The part I enjoyed the most was the question at the end of each day that helped you to reflect deeper in the day's devotion, and see how it is relevant in your own life.
A quote that I most enjoyed is, "When we dress provocatively, we're devaluing ourselves because we're encouraging others to ignore everything about us except our external appearance."
