Good Reads: Embracing Beauty by Trina Holden

I royally surprised myself. Because I loved Trina’s ebook, Embracing Beauty.

You all know I’m not a fashionista. I like looking put together, but I hate messing with trying to shop, match, coordinate, and figure out what things work together.

It takes so much time and effort and it drains me instead of energizing me. In fact, on the rare occasions that I do go shopping, I usually leave feeling frustrated by how fruitless the trip seemed to be.

{Yes, I know, all of you who love beauty and fashion and putting outfits together likely think I’m a little bit weird! I often wish I could be like you all!}

Trina’s ebook was a breath of fresh air for me. I loved her perspective on beauty from a Christian standpoint in the beginning chapters. In fact, it really challenged some of my preconceived ideas and beliefs–which I appreciated.

In addition, I loved her simple and frugal ideas for how to figure out what your style is and how to create beauty from the wardrobe you already have. Plus, her thrift store shopping tips were very helpful.

If you’re a Christian mom — and especially if you’re in the season of life when you are pregnant and nursing and caring for little people all day — I think you’ll be blessed and inspired by Trina’s ebook.

    I’m glad you’re going to be featuring a few books. I bought the bundle, but I don’t know what to read first! Well, I am starting with Hula Hoop Girl, but I wasn’t sure what to read next. I just might go with Embracing Beauty next. Of course the cooking/food books I’ll be reading all the time! 🙂
    I’m looking forward to your other reviews.

      If you haven’t read Tell Your Time by Amy Lynn Andrews, I love that one, and think it’s a book everyone should read. 🙂

      I also love Your Grocery Budget Toolbox, One Bite at a Time, Grocery University, Frumps to Pumps, among many others.

    Woot! I just got the hard copy in the mail yesterday! Looking forward to digging into it. 🙂

  • Sounds like it will help me too! I’ve already downloaded mine and just haven’t decided which book to dig into first. Thanks for the review.

  • I just bought the bundle and am trying to figure out what to read first. I’ll admit that I have a major soft spot for weight loss stories, so the ebook about the woman who lost 100 lbs might get to the top of the list!
