Beyond Skin Deep

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all?" Most of us have heard or read those words spoken by the evil queen in the classic fairy tale, Snow White. The queen was very vain and inexplicably jealous of her step-daughter. As children, we were introduced to the idea that beauty is fleeting and there is always someone who looks better than us.

Today, we are bombarded by commercials and other forms of media that tell us we're not beautiful enough, not skinny enough, not thick enough. Our hair isn't curly enough, straight enough, soft enough, long enough, thick enough, and the list goes on and on. Our society is so caught up on external beauty that we tend to ignore the fact that it is just the external wrapping of a valuable gift.
