Beauty Unfading, Over Fading Beauty - Part Two


{Links are provided at the end of your reading.}

We're continuing with our 'Beauty Unfading, Over Fading Beauty' series. This soul care series is a brave step into our grace and freedom rhythms.

There's nothing wrong with outer beauty, but when it gets elevated to a place of all-importance, it distorts and disturbs our perception of noticing beauty from many different angles. This is why we need to campaign for another viewpoint of beauty from the Beautiful One, Himself. There's a purpose to beauty that's less about admiration and more about intimate connection.

"Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes

from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God - 1 Peter 3:3-4 (NLT)."

It's really an honor to sit down for a few weeks with my daughter and designer, Anneliese (b.a.s.h_18), to talk about her journey of acknowledging her beauty from the inside-out. Each week, I'll share her responses to my interview questions.

Before we get into the interview, I want to also congratulate her on the debut of her line of stationery: notebooks and sticky notes. They have arrived!

To celebrate, we've launched the #BeautyUnfading campaign on social media. Connect with us online: Instagram: @mohawkmommaloves and @b.a.s.h_18 Facebook Page: Mohawkmomma Studio

The Interview Part Two

WEEK TWO

Question:

Consider 1 Peter 3 and the attributes you placed on each of your design banners, how would you describe the qualities of your unfading, inner beauty? And how does it influence they way you take note of your fading, outer beauty?

Answer:

Honestly, it took a while for me to embrace my inner beauty because I had to accept my outer beauty, first—flaws and all. Although my outer shell is a momentary thing in my life, it's still part of how I play out my life.

When I accepted that I had a fading beauty on the outside, it helped me on the inside. It took the pressure off of trying to attain an impossible standard that I put on myself (or put on by media). It helped me to be brave and counter-cultural. And this is why I chose the 'Brave' design to kick off the series. In a nutshell, I would describe my inner beauty as brave, loyal, kind and lovely.
