Recognize your own outer and inner beauty as defined by God, not the media or others.
Most women know that God loves them, but might he love them more if they finally lost that last ten pounds, or got their hair to lay right, or finally found a pair of jeans that looked good and let them breathe? Well, maybe God doesn’t care about jeans, but women do, and all the talk about inner beauty hasn’t kept all of us from staring into a mirror and taking an inventory that never quite measures up. Enough Already will:
—Elevate the soul-freeing, spiritual truth that God is the Creator of beauty and that women are called to appreciate and care for themselves as his own. —Enable women to accept God-given beauty so that when they look in the mirror they see his handiwork, not their flaws. —Equip women to win the ugly struggle with beauty once and for all.

In a day and age where beauty and the quest for it are plastered all over magazines, the internet and via movies and television, it is often very hard to feel up to par, and far too easy to find ourselves comparing to those we see portrayed in the media. Yet, we know we are created in the image of God, so therefore we are beautiful and should not always look for flaws or compare ourselves to others.
Enough Already was a a great reminder that we need to love ourselves just God does. The author gives a lot of fantastic tips and uses many personal stories and most importantly Biblical scripture to encourage and inspire each woman that will read this book, bringing you to His definition of beauty versus society's.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
