Praise for The Other Side of Beauty

The Other Side of Beauty is a thought-provoking journey into the depths of one of our deepest desires—to behold beauty and become one with it. Through her personal experience, wisdom, and humor, Leah Darrow inspires the reader to the authentic love and beauty found in Jesus Christ. I laughed, I cried, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book!”

—Sister Miriam James Heidland, SOLT Catholic speaker and author of Loved As I Am

“Leah’s message and her whole ministry is, in a word: revolutionary. In an era of ‘liberation’ we’ve never had more women (or men) experience life in chains: the chains of negative self-image, unhealthy comparison, hatred of their own bodies, false notions of success, or poverty of purpose. Leah is on the front line in the revolution against the emptiness of this age. Join her. Buy two of these books and give one away!”

—Chris Stefanick, founder and president of Real Life Catholic

“In The Other Side of Beauty Leah Darrow so clearly cuts through the lies of the culture about ‘beauty,’ and presents the wonderful truth of God’s beauty. Leah’s life experiences and her witness of hope will inspire every young woman who picks up this book to remember who they are as God’s daughters and the radiant life for which they were made!”

—Jackie Francois Angel, speaker, recording artist, and author of Forever

“Leah Darrow uses her experience in the beauty industry to help the women of our culture see what true beauty looks like.”

—Jennifer Fulwiler, host of The Jennifer Fulwiler Show and author of Something Other than God

“Leah Darrow's The Other Side of Beauty is a captivating journey into the heart of woman and our search for true beauty. With passion and vulnerability, coupled with compelling research, Leah shares her heart and paints a masterful picture of the authentic love and beauty women deeply desire. A must-read for women of all ages.”

—Emily Wilson-Hussem, Speaker, Musician, and Author of I Choose the Sky


About the Book

Drawing on her experience on America's Next Top Model and her work as a fashion model, Leah Darrow exposes the lies we are told about our worth being tied to our appearance and instead invites us to look again at the real meaning of beauty.

She shows how we can reclaim true and lasting beauty--the kind that doesn't depend on self-doubt, exploitation, or comparison--when we reflect God's glory and embrace our value as he made us to be:


Only when we learn to see ourselves as God does can we leave behind our culture's definitions and demands and find joy in The Other Side of Beauty.

"An author with the power to influence young lives." --Booklist
