"e;You can probably think of a lot of things in your life that you'd like to celebrate...but your skin?! Most teenage girls can point to a couple things about their skin that they're unhappy with (and certainly wouldn't want to celebrate!). That's because the world around you has convinced you that your physical skin is what's most important. But it goes so much deeper than that... In Celebrate the Skin You're In, you'll find out what it means to celebrate, accept, love, and care for the "e;skin"e; that really matters-the skin that holds together all your invisible pieces like your passions, thoughts, identity, ideas, dreams, beliefs, fears, and more. Crystal Kirgiss will help you see that God not only created you, but that God also understands you.
