NEW: Reclaiming Beauty Webinar


Elizabeth and Anna Sofia Botkin have just announced a NEW webinar entitled Reclaiming Beauty: A New Look of How to Glorify God with Your Body. My daughters and I have been blessed by their resources in the past such as Return of the Daughters and  What is Biblical Femininity (a favorite) so we are looking to listening to this. Here is a description from the Ladies Against Feminism site that we contribute at:


"What is beauty?

Some say beauty fits in a size 0. Some say beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Some say beauty is only skin deep. Some say beauty is only a quality of the heart. Some say beauty is truth. Some say beauty is a lie. Some say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some say beauty is as beauty does. Some say Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly are beautiful. Some say everyone is beautiful. Some say beauty is divine. Some say beauty is corrupting.

From all this confusion, one idea emerges clearly: The world knows beauty matters. They talk a lot about it, write poetry and paint paintings celebrating it, and spend $160 billion dollars a year on it. But what’s equally clear is that they don’t know what it is. The question is: Do we?




Today’s young Christian women have grown up in the most image-obsessed generation in history, a generation that worships some of the most twisted ideals of beauty the world has ever seen. But whether we love them or hate them… they tend to shape our own perceptions of what beauty is. 

Some of us accept its ideals, and struggle to fit into its mold – others of us are repulsed by it, concluding that physical beauty itself is immodest, worldly, and unspiritual, and reject the realm of beautification completely. But when all we’ve ever seen is the counterfeit the world offers, we can sometimes forget that the world did not create beauty – God did. And though we all know the world has a lot to say about image, we sometimes don’t realize how much God does too.

It looks amazing! I think it will be really interesting!

I am not sure on the time difference between there and England - knowing my luck it will be midnight here when the sessions run.

I hope they make it into a book!

Do you know if the sessions will be recorded to be watched at our convenience?
We are in the Pacific Time Zone, and this would be from 5-6 pm for us, which is right in the middle of meal preparation and dinner time for us.
If so, I would love to do this with my daughters

I REALLY want to sign up for this!! I wish it didn't cost anything. :( I might have to pinch lots of pennies this month.

June- I just heard back after contacting Visionary Daughters about whether they would be taped and this was the reply:
"Yes, everyone who registers for the webinar will be able to download the sessions shortly after they conclude. So you would be able to save them and watch them whenever you'd like. "

I thought others would like to know.
