“Reading Hello, Beautiful!: Finally Love Yourself The Way You Are, is like taking a breath of fresh air in a world that imposes ever increasing, unobtainable standards of beauty. Veteran author, Jeanette Levellie and her co-author, take a tag team approach with their starkly, personal true stories, that astutely correspond with lessons in inner beauty. Their writing voices complement each other seamlessly, like a musical duet, but each stands out in their own way, so even though the stories are not consecutive, you get an intuitive feel for which author you are reading.

…Who knows if perhaps you were made Queen for just such a time as this?
Esther 4:14 NLT
Esther realized God had placed her in a unique position as queen of a foreign nation. She had a choice to make—to risk her life to save the people of Israel or die trying.
During the American Revolution, Lydia Darragh found herself with a difficult decision to make as well. In September 1777, British troops under General William Howe had occupied her town and her residence. She and her family were allowed to remain in their home only because they were Quakers who were known to be pacifists.
Lydia was not only a Quaker but also a mother whose oldest son Charles had enlisted in the 2nd Pennsylvania Regiment of the Continental Army. So, she began to eavesdrop on Howe’s staff meetings held in her parlor and discovered they were planning a surprise attack.
Lydia wrote the information in code and, under the pretense of filling her flour bag at the grist mill, made her way to the American camp to warn the Continental Army, thus saving the men from the surprise attack by British troops.
One day, perhaps you, too, might be in a pivotal position, one that God Himself has placed you in, and you may have a decision to make. “Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity” (John 12:25 NLT).
