From celebrated Hollywood starlets to the covers of Cosmo, our society seems obsessed with beauty. Actress and Main Floor host Nancy Stafford (best known for her starring role as Michelle Thomas on Matlock) digs below our culture's fixation on outward appearance to show you that true beauty is more than skin-deep. "Every woman has beauty," says Stafford, "but not everyone sees it. I want you to see it." In Beauty by the Book she bares her heart to readers, laying out the Scriptures, promises, and truths women need to know to find their true value. Her liberating reflections will help you see yourself as God sees you -- worthy, lovable, and beautiful. “Mirror, Mirror, on the W all…”
What do you see when you look in the mirror?
Do you see a unique individual created in the image of Beauty itself—one chosen, Cherished, and valued in the eyes of God? If not, you may be looking in the wrong mirror—one distorted by emotional wounds, lies from your past, or the unrealistic standards of our culture.
“Everyone has beauty and worth,” says Nancy Stafford, “but not everyone sees it. I want you to see it.”
Nancy shares her own poignant story and holds up the true mirror of God’s Word—inviting you to see yourself as God sees you, to absorb His truth, and to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the King is enthralled by your beauty!

Beauty by the Book
The Power of Appearances
He does not judge me by appearances ...
Stop judging by mere appearances,
and make a right judgment.-John 7:24
The hotel ballroom was jammed. It was the biggest fundraiser of the year for the American Red Cross. Everybody who was anybody was there. Philanthropists mixed with politicians mixed with Rotary Club. I was Miss Florida. I wore a red evening gown draped with a satin and velvet sash that said so.
Ouch! With every move of my head, one of the three-inch bobby pins keeping my crown aloft jabbed into my skull and pinched my teased scalp, bringing me to near tears. I imagined a handful of hair being yanked out at the roots. Surely I must be bleeding by now. Better check. Looking for an escape route to the ladies room to recrown myself, I saw ... her. As Sherlock Holmes referred to the character of Irene Adler, she was ... The Woman.
