“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
The Audacity of Beauty is a compilation of 35 life-changing stories that discuss relationships, body image, abuse, cancer, drugs, race, self-esteem, and death. The true stories in this book were carefully compiled over a total of three years and were written by women from four continents. Each story reinforces the inner strength of a woman and the fact that self-love, acceptance and healing are attainable despite one’s past or present.
The Audacity of Beauty also includes a fun and interactive workbook that offers life-enhancing activities. Teenage girls and women of all ages will feel a sense of strength, courage, and hope from this classic. The Audacity of Beauty was creatively composed to leave readers feeling an instant connection to the author of each story, while evoking the senses. This book will make you laugh and cry, but most importantly, you will embrace the audacious notion of the true meaning of beauty, which is skillfully portrayed within these pages.
The Audacity of Beauty will give you the tools needed to love yourself despite the media’s interpretation of beauty, despite past hurt and pain, despite that one person who refused to see the beauty in you, despite the loss of love, despite the sickness, and despite the negativity others have inflicted on you. You are bold. You are beautiful. You are The Audacity of Beauty.
Demia Doggette, author of The Audacity of Beauty, grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois where she attended an ethnically diverse school and church. This background enabled her to gain an awareness that the various struggles of females are not limited to race, culture, or community. They are mutually experienced by women worldwide, but can be overcome with the proper tools.
Demia received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Oakwood University, a Master of Science in Management and a Master of Business Administration from Florida Institute of Technology. Her life experiences and educational background, combined with her passion for people, providentially led her to author this book and further her reach by creating Beautiful Epiphany.
