More Beautiful You

I posted this on my personal blog today and just had to share it with you too.

I love this song and can't help but think of the girls and women who are effected by human trafficking that desperately need to hear these words and know that they are indeed beautiful, no matter what they have been through and how they feel about themselves as a result.

What do you think?




More Beautiful You
Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn't straight her body isn't fake
And she's always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don't buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you've already done
Anything to get ahead
And you say you've got a man but he's got another plan
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come
You starve yourself to play the part
But I can promise you there's a man whose love is true
And he'll treat you like the jewel you are

So turn around you're not too far
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It's not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who's strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth
And again you'll see through the eyes of a little girl

  1. I love when people share music...especially GOOD music. I am going to play this for my daughter. What a great message, and one so many need to hear and truly believe.

    I love that you were given a heart for human trafickking. I'm sure running the business, blogs, and life must get tiring, but even if you don't see the immediate results know that you are making a difference. Every time I come here, I am forced to think outside of myself, and I thank you for that.

  2. Thanks for sharing a message we all must be reminded of from time to time. This world loves to make us feel like we're never enough or not perfect enough...but if we could only see ourselves the way God sees us...perfectly beautiful, and loved SO MUCH.
