A Common Insecurity and Perfectly Unique

Six years ago I stood in a small, grassy field in front of a school in Zambia and stared into the eyes of a fifteen-year-old girl as she slowly began to tell me the details of her life.  She was scared.  She was unsure.  She was angry.

She talked to me about her life at home and her life at school. She told me about her fear and her failures, and she opened my eyes to a lesson I’ve yet to forget.

I thought this mission trip would open my eyes to poverty and hunger, and make me see a world outside of my own. While I was able to see the clear differences from my “bubble” of a world, I also saw some similarities.

In the eyes of that fifteen-year-old girl, I saw the same things I had once seen in my own eyes: insecurity.

I quickly realized my heart had a special place for teenage girls.  It didn’t matter if they were from Zambia or the United States, their fears still looked the same.

This week my friend, Annie Downs, releases her new book, Perfectly Unique: Praising God From Head to Foot.  Annie understands the same lesson I learned in Zambia- every girl has her struggle.  She’s written this book to give girls an insight on how God can use every part of her body to worship and to give girls confidence and faith to live out their teen and college years.

Annie is a ridiculously talented writer and has a huge heart for young women.  I’m so excited to watch her live out her dream and know this book will have an impact with girls around the world.

If you know a young woman that could use a reminder that their confidence is found in Christ, grab a copy of this book!  Or two 🙂
