Uncommon Beauty: by Cynthia Heald
Author: Cynthia Heald
|Uncommon Beauty: 7 Qualities of a Beautiful Woman|
Everywhere we look, it is the “100 Most Beautiful” that are honored and publicized. Inner beauty has taken a back seat to outward appearance. While physical attributes can rarely be altered or modified, inner beauty can be cultivated. Bestselling author Cynthia Heald has chosen seven qualities that make a woman beautiful. In order to make these attributes real and applicable, Cynthia has chosen key women from history, literature, the Bible, and our society to illustrate each quality. These women can be considered “ordinary” women—women with whom other women could readily identify with and who could be easily emulated. For it is her desire that the lives of these women will inspire anyone, no matter how young or old, to say, “I want to develop these qualities in my life—I want to be in the process of becoming a beautiful woman.”

What comes to your mind when you hear the phrase a "beautiful woman?"
I think that most of us would respond by thinking of someone who is physically attractive. Our society fosters this idea by taking special notice of beautiful women. They grace magazine covers and are considered to be newsworthy. Physical beauty is so highly prized and praised that it tends to overshadow any consideration of a woman's inner beauty.
But I have learned over the years that beauty is indeed more than skin-deep. I have come to admire women who are gracious, considerate of others, and passionate. Beauty, to me, is seen in a woman whose face mirrors her acceptance of who she is, her contentment with where she is, and her enthusiasm for people and life.
In this book, I have selected various women from history, literature, and the Bible-each one representing the qualities that I think are essential for inner beauty. This beauty is uncommon because it is rare and cannot be readily seen. Although these women are in many ways ordinary, they became beautiful by choosing to live extraordinarily.
My prayer for you as you read this book is that you will emerge with a clear picture of the significance and blessing of inner beauty. And my desire for you is that you will begin a journey of focusing on the beauty that comes from within and will in the process, become an uncommonly beautiful woman.
Cynthia Heald uses her speaking engagements, Bible studies, and books to encourage women around the world to deepen their relationship with God. In addition to her popular Becoming a Woman Of . . . Bible study series, which includes the best-selling Becoming a Woman of Excellence and Becoming a Woman of Freedom, Cynthia has also written Abiding in Christ: Becoming a Woman Who Walks with God, a Gold Medallion–winning devotional. Her husband, Jack, joined her in writing two Bible studies about marriage: Loving Your Wife and Walking Together. Cynthia's other nonfiction books include A Woman's Journey to the Heart of God and When the Father Holds You Close.
When she is not writing or speaking, Cynthia loves to spend time with Jack and their four children and eight grandchildren. She is an avid reader, especially of the classics. Cynthia and Jack are full-time Navigator staff members in Tucson, Arizona.
Her first book with Tyndale House, Maybe God Is Right After All (and Other Radical Ideas to Live By) was released in 2007.
