A helpful reminder from author Jen Oshman that as Christians our view of beauty should focus on the One who created us.

"Outward beauty in this age is such a tricky thing. For one, we are confronted with it every time we look in the mirror. Secondly, we are all on our phones scrolling social media and we have these visual images—these little squares, these reels—all day, every day, just reminding us of outward beauty. It can feel really preeminent, really oppressive, like something we just really want to chase after."
