I had the awesome opportunity to be guest on Cornerstone Television’s Focus 4 Program recently (see a video clip and additional YouTube links on my Media page). It was such a blessing to be a part of their program that day, sharing in the message about God at work in our lives, and I believe that it was no coincidence that Steve Feazel, a popular Christian speaker, writer, comedian, and producer was also on the show that day to discuss the new film Yellow Roses.
As a young woman, I struggled greatly with my self-esteem, my self-concept, and desperately wanted to be “normal,” despite the reality of how I entered this world. For many years I did anything and everything that I could to fit in and camouflage the pain that I felt inside. The courageous young women in this film share their own personal struggles with the pressure to fit in, the pressure to do anything and everything to be liked and wanted. Most importantly, these beautiful young women share inspire others like them to heal from the pain and the experiences in their lives, and give them hope that no matter what, they ARE wanted and they ARE loved, by the God who loves us, even when we don’t love ourselves.
I encourage you to check out the trailer for Yellow Roses and visit the website at: http://www.yellowrosesfilm.com for more information on the film, how to order it, and how to schedule a viewing if you are interested for youth in your school or your church.
