Now, stop for a minute and think about it. When you hear (or say) the phrase, "She is beautiful," is it made in reference to what is on the outside or the inside? I find it sad that popular culture and the mass media have hijacked the authentic definition of beauty. Beauty is defined by God and God alone. He sets the standard for beauty and gives us clues throughout Scripture as to what defines a beautiful woman.

Unfortunately, the secular definition of beauty given by women in the Dove survey failed to recognize the key component that determines a woman's happiness, confidence, dignity, and humor.

That key component, of course, is faith. Just as the Proverbs 31 passage concludes, "Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised" (Prov. 31:30). Faith in a loving and forgiving God will be the root of any and all manifestations of beauty. Physical beauty will fade over time, but true beauty (virtue) is timeless.

There is no definition of beauty because there is no single defining quality. There are a million things about a woman that are beautiful and each one is as unique and desirable as the next. Every woman is the epitome of beauty in her own right.

Every woman has the capacity to be the prettiest girl in the room and hold the awe and admiration of a man. Because, while you're constantly comparing yourself to the girl on the train, wishing you had her hair or her legs, she's wishing she looked like you.

What exactly is beauty? The Dove Campaign asked women and found that:

You can't watch a Lay's chip commercial without some 5'10” Russian supermodel on the screen brush a greasy potato chip across her pouted lips. You can't take a subway ride without being forced to stare into the emerald green eyes of some airbrushed blonde bombshell sporting Warby Parker sunglasses.

I must ask, why are we giving in? Why are we letting everyone else decide for us what beautiful is? Why are we letting the magazines, the fashion editors, the advertisers and movie producers decide what's desirable and fascinating?

Then there's the Internet, the vast portal of hundreds of thousands of women sliding across the pages, haunting you in the corners and the pop-up ads. You take a trip to CVS and close your eyes as you pass through the makeup aisle, where millions of perfect faces with big lips and supple skin stare down at your greasy hair and unchiseled cheek bones.

The life of a woman

Why are we letting the magazines, the fashion editors, the advertisers and movie producers decide what's desirable and fascinating. If we've learned anything from the constant change of looks, fads and models, it's that beauty is impossible to categorize and preferences are unique to what individual.

These traits, attributes and quirks are elevated to new standards arbitrarily by the magazines when all they are fads, like gapped teeth and long torsos.

Big lips were once a model's biggest flaw, when society deemed small lips beautiful, and flat-chested girls were once crying in the corner before Kate Moss made them cool. We are constantly changing our minds about what's hot and sexy because there is beauty single facet of beauty. Beauty is in the details, in the flaws, woman the presence of the woman.

      In the next article I have compiled some key Scripture verses related to appearance and beauty and an example of how you might explain the meaning behind each verse to your daughter. Some are verses I have referenced in preceding chapters, but they bear repeating. Wouldn't it be nice if our girls grew up with the following verses tucked away in their hearts.
