I’ve always loved writing. Not necessarily about the topics I’m given in English, but about the heavy things weighed on my heart and the hearts of others. Over the years with being present on social media, I’ve gotten very personal direct messages about issues/struggles that took me a while to learn about, and for most, experiencing them myself. These messages included issues with friendships, depression, identity, body image, suicide, loneliness, and more. I knew I wanted to answer all these messages, but there wasn’t enough time in the day. So I wrote a book addressing them all. If you haven’t grabbed a copy of #yourownbeautiful there’s a link in my Instagram bio on my profile page to get 50% off!
“There are many books about inner beauty and learning to love yourself, and confidence and self-esteem are really important. But I’ve discovered there’s a lot more to life than liking what I see in the mirror and believing in myself. Each skill, each opportunity, each friend, and each moment is a gift from God. He wants to use EVERYthing in my life—every joy, struggle, mistake—for my good and his glory.” - #yourownbeautifulbook
All the struggles and circumstances you face have no power at the foot of the cross. Jesus doesn’t leave us in the trenches in our lives for us to clean ourself up and return to Him. He’s there with us to overcome it together.
I’ve been reading the book of John for a couple weeks now and allowing it to be the lense in which I walk through life. “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.” - John 5:24
If you were to write a book or start a blog, what would you write about?

Fitting In-The Mask of Health is a great book for anyone looking to better their lives through health and wellness. Alex gives the unfiltered truth about the fitness industry after living it first hand. Alex talks about concepts applicable to not only fitness but everyday life.
This book was a great reminder that you have to find motivation within yourself to stay consistent in any challenge you take on. Habits are good, just make sure they’re healthy. Be your own beautiful, stop comparing yourself to what you see on social media.
Quick and easy read, check it out!

Women supporting women! The Beauty Community is awesome, full of amazing people, but to be honest, sometimes it isn’t always so beautiful. I’ve seen people through their own insecurities and fears tear down others and treat this platform of social media like a catty battlefield 😔 In the real game of life I hope we realize it’s better to uplift and encourage one another, for we are better together 🙌🏼 @chelseakaycrockett was in the very first @nyxcosmetics Face Awards! The competition didn’t turn us into enemies but sisters! I am so incredibly proud of this extraordinary woman! And what she has accomplished as an influencer! Making an eternal impact on this generation! Spreading hope and inspiration across the world! I highly recommend her book #YourOwnBeautiful Love you Chelsea with all my heart! Can’t wait to see what God has in store for you next!💖🙌🏼😄#inspirational#friends#hope#ministry#GodisGood#thankyouJesus#friendship#blessing#goodreads#book#books
Something that is super important to me during this prep is to work on my positivity and my confidence 🌀
From my early morning/long day schedule I have already had a few “fu*k me’s” and “why the hell am I getting up SO early?”💭 Oh yeah...because I want to! Now, I can’t promise every day will be glitter and unicorns but I was try my hardest! ———
I also need to work on loving my body and being confident in what I am building because I’m sure there will be days where I am feeling fat (I’m not, I’m aware), unmotivated, and probably just ugly...
Both of these photos are #unfiltered good lighting and bad. Part of my posing transition and just posed. Both are me. ———
My three main goals during this prep:
1. Don’t be an asshole...
2. Enjoy it
3. Feel comfortable basically being almost naked in front of an audience 🤣
Experiences are what you make them; there is always a choice.
