C. S. Lewis is one of the most influential Christian writers of our time. The Chronicles of Narnia has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide and all Lewis's works are estimated to sell 6 million copies annually. At the fiftieth anniversary of his death, Lewis expert Devin Brown brings the beloved author's story to life in a fresh, accessible, and moving biography through focusing on Lewis's spiritual journey. Although it was clear from the start that Lewis would be a writer, it was not always clear he would become a Christian. Drawing on Lewis's autobiographical works, books by those who knew him personally, and his apologetic and fictional writing, this book tells the inspiring story of Lewis's journey from cynical atheist to joyous Christian and challenges readers to follow their own calling. The book allows Lewis to tell his own life story in a uniquely powerful manner while shedding light on his best-known works.
Be Your Own Beautiful ~ is a book dedicated to inspiring women of all ages and nationalities to always find the beauty within themselves while learning to love who they are. It is important that, as women, we face our insecurities so that we are able to embrace the fullness of our purpose and who God originally destined us to be. Being a woman who has struggled most of my life with anger, it became important to me to find the root of this anger because it had turned me into a person that many people didn’t want to be around, including myself. I chose to share my story because I desire to help as many young ladies/women break free from the pain of their past while embracing the Rare Beauty that awaits within. Once that Rare Beauty is found, I guarantee you will realize that YOU are not an illusion of beauty but the definition of it.
