Hey, pretty girl!

Hey pretty girl,

Nice outfit, nice hair too.

Yeah, you!

You always look put together. 

From your eyebrow down to your shoe.


Hey pretty girl,

Stop fussing, you look great.

Look in and around you.

Your heart, your character…people hold more weight.

Hey pretty girl,

That’s enough. Don’t try so hard.

True beauty comes from within.

Hair and makeup can’t hide it. 

Toner or wash can’t erase it.

Hey pretty girl, 

I know how you look is important.

It makes you feel secure.

It makes you feel confident.

Hey pretty girl,

Your looks will one day fade.

No reason your security should fade with it.

No reason your confidence should wane.


Hey pretty girl,

You’re not just pretty.

You are beautiful.

Did you know?

But not beautiful as the world perceives or dictates.

Not beautiful that is all for show.

Beautiful girl, 

You’re beautiful because you were made with such a grand love.

You’re beautiful because you are patterned after your Maker.

You’re beautiful because you are made for a purpose.

You’re beautiful because you are loved and cared for by your Father.


Hey beautiful girl,

Take care of your heart.

Don’t let the world lie to you and destroy you.

Instead, let the Word grow and transform you.

Hey beautiful girl,

You are whole, you’re complete.

Jesus died to save you and give you a full life.

Though you are imperfect, He says you are worth it.

Hey beautiful girl,

Don’t be afraid. Take your true identity. 

Be you. Be true beauty. Be who God designed you to be.

Live fathered. Live forgiven. Live loved.

Live favored. Live grateful. Live free.
